No Prep RC Drag Racing

WHAT IS NO PREP RC DRAG RACING ?

  The track length is 132 feet (scale ¼ mile) We call this no prep meaning we only sweep/blow/clean the racing surface, no traction additive is applied to the surface, which makes power management and driving the keys to fast consistent runs. 

 The no prep drag racing scene is by far the hottest new segment in RC this year. We are seeing lots of people converting different types of vehicles, like short course trucks, and modifying them for drag racing. There has also been a drag car released, namely the Team Associated DR10 which is specifically meant for the no prep scene.

All are welcome to come check out any event.  Bring a car even if you’re not shooting for a spot on the list, you can run for fun or just swing by and watch for a bit and take a good look around and enjoy the hobby of No Prep R/C Drag Racing.
