Indoor National Series

 

Are you ready to take the title?

JConcepts, together with many fine sponsors and race tracks, have organized a first of its kind, a true Indoor National Series. The first 4 years combined attracted over 4000 entries. 2015 is scheduled as a 5 race series across the United States, drivers now have the opportunity to showcase their abilities on a national and regional level. Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall nationals make up the seasonal events at fixed locations while the finals will serve as the end of the year bash for the awards and series championship. The series will be awarded based on points participation in 3 out of the 5 events.
​ 
JConcepts wants to make the 2015 Indoor National Series one to remember. With a heavier marketing push to provide the best turnout possible for the host track, JConcepts has teamed up with RedRC.net as a media partner to professionally cover select events during the 2015 season. We are looking to make 2015 a breakout year in terms of series participation, factory drivers, representatives and professionalism.  

All events will be awarded separately and collectively so those worried about a commitment will be recognized for performance regardless of series participation. City destinations, track facilities and competition level have all been weighed and evaluated ahead of time so rest assured the experience and atmosphere is worthy, now it's up to you.

Indoor National Series Clarification Regarding Tires and Wheels

To clear a little confusion regarding 2.2” and 2.4” wheels and tires we have provided some additional information below to bring some consistency to the Indoor National Series.     

At race series events #1-3 it was permitted to use the larger bead diameter tires only mounted on 2.2” wheels.    This was done to allow the use of most manufacturers signature tires to promote the ability to choose between all brands and styles during the event.   This is done by simply gluing the rubber conversion bead to a standard 2.2” wheel and gluing the 2.4” tire to the modified wheel.   While it is understood the official ROAR rule is to NOT allow the use of any 2.4” tires or wheels in combination with each other, we feel obligated to our racers to maintain the consistency set during races #1-3.     The rule regarding these wheels and tires is under review by ROAR for the 2015 season and the Indoor National Series intends to adhere to any changes ROAR clarifies in 2015 going forward.


Summer Indoor Nationals Recap

Ryan Maifield completed the perfect debut with Team Losi Racing as he took all three of his new TLR cars to victory. Having dominated the same event last year with Team Associated, the Arizona ace’s much anticipated first outing with his new team again produced an all conquering performance. Top Qualifier for each of his A-Mains, in the series’ two big classes, 2wD & 4WD buggy, he would wrap things up early repeating his A1 performances in A2 to claim overall victory. Also debuting TLR’s new 22 SCT 2.0 at the A-Main Hobbies owned track he made it a hat trick as he took the win of that class’ single A-Main.

Rules

We are going to be observing the current ROAR rules on the National Indoor Series events. If you are unaware of these rules or updates please visit the ROAR website. We will continue to use a visual technical inspection as the race series builds in popularity. Below are noteworthy rules specific to the Indoor National Series for quick reference. 

In the 17.5 stock classes, house rules will be adopted regarding boost settings. For each event where no speed control boost is allowed, a representative from the track will tech for boost as they typically do for their local races. If you are looking to bump-up during the weekend or plan on finishing in the top 3 you will want to be utilizing a legal combination.

Stock Power Rules

The Stock Buggy, Truck and Short Course classes will be using 17.5t motors. This should provide everyone with easy access to the current standard stock brushless motor for off-road.  We will be using house rules when it comes to boost vs. no boost and it will be decided by the host track and director.   At events where NO boost is allowed be prepared for a small random check at these events.   Please check the host track rules ahead of time to make sure you have the required setup. Adjustable timing motors are allowed.


Short Course Class Rules

The Pro 2 Stock SCT class will allow changes to the radio, receiver, body and tires and aftermarket hop-ups. Any combination of stock SCT RTR motor and speed controls from the available vehicles are allowed or the use of 17.5 brushless motors and speed control equipment. Body changes are allowed, as long as the body appears similar to a Short Course type truck. All 3.0 x 2.2 SCT tires are legal for the stock class.

The Open Pro 2 class is intended for the more experienced driver and is open to all manufacturer SCT trucks. All 3.0” x 2.2” SCT tires are legal for the open SCT classes.

Only 2s Lipo battery packs are allowed in all Short Course Classes.
