Chico, Ca, January 31, 2012 – Test your skills against Northern California’s top stock racers in Outback Raceway’s Electric Off-Road Stock Spec Series. Outback Raceway will host a Wednesday night and Saturday night “Spec Series” for 17.5 stock spec racers. Racers will have the opportunity to purchase a Speed Passion V3 ROAR Spec 17.5 fixed endbell motor at cost for $35. Racers that enter the Stock Spec Series will receive $5 off of their entry fees, essentially paying back the cost of the motor during the six race series. Only four races will count towards your series points total with two race throw-outs. There will be stock spec classes for 17.5 2WD buggy, 17.5 4WD buggy, 17.5 Short Course, and 17.5 Stadium Truck. All races will be held on Outback Raceway’s grippy, indoor surface. Comfortable, heated pitting is available to accommodate over 100 racers. A Main Hobbies fully-stocked warehouse will be available for parts, tires and anything else you might need during the races. Come race the Stock Spec Series if you think you have what it takes. Awards and prizes will be given out at the end of each series.

Several A Main Hobbies employees have been running the Speed Passion V3 ROAR Spec and their lap times are identical to the laps times they’ve run with other more expensive motors with timing. The motors are efficient and can be geared up for maximum performance, but gear at your own risk. We recommend keeping the motors below 160-degrees Fahrenheit.
