    This sounds like a lot of fun. I recently pulled my cars out of storage and have the "bug" again. Unfortunately all I have had are 1/24 cars.

    How do I get started with 1/32 and what kind of cars should I be looking at? I know it's kind of vague, pretend like I'm someone who has no clue and explain it to me.. :-) (sad but true).

      Sorry for the late reply.
      well josh the best thing you can do is go down to your local hobby shop and see if they have any club or racing going on around town.

      and also this website is a great place to find people in ur area that are in the same hobby

      In atlanta we have great guys who share information and push each other to race harder and better. No other place i would want to race at!
      hope this helps and also look up the race directory on this forum.
