Why are you running Nitro cars indoors?
The hall doesn't have the ventilation for this and the fumes hang around long after the cars have been run.

It will not be very nice running straight after there demo.

Sorry for considering the health of my kid and others who will be in the hall.
Raced nitro long enough outdoors to know the dangers of the fumes and see the different reactions people have to it.
Headaches burning eyes and respiratory issues are just some of the short term issues.

There is little airflow in that hall and the fumes are heavy so hang around for quite some time.

Hey Nath they ran nitro indoor for a demo last year, granted it was only 1 but I don't remember the fumes being very bad at all just the noise more than anything

I think it will be good for the public to see what else RC has to offer. Nitro fuel does not create as much smoke as it used to and if the cars are warmed up out side to full running temp first there will nearly be no smoke at all just a slight smell of burnt Nitro & Castor.

Why do you think there has been such a decline in 4wd sct racing? We only have 7 trucks, seems very low this year. Where have all those racers gone, into other classes, or just not racing that class anymore? :cry:
