Hey I am From Ne Ohio and t-jet and afx are alive and well in Ohio too!.... I am from canton and race at Marks Model World. We have a.really great group of guys there too.
We run "classic stock" class and modified t-jets ( Frey style) and afx cars...stock or modified ( silicone rear tires weighted front end such as wizard) and we also have a box stock class.
What classes do you guys run out there? I may take a trip out your way Soon

Dee, We run a skinny tire class that may be similar to your classic stocks, a Fray type class with slip-on silicones and a Magnatraction AFX with slip-on silicones and hard bodies. If you are interested in more detailsm LMK. I race with Rick.
