An open letter to all PDX tracks

I have been watching the sniping going on on rctech back and forth about which of the new tracks is best, and what the schedule should be. This all needs to stop for the good of the hobby. There always seem to be a vocal few that are crap stirrers, and love the drama. Once again, this needs to stop or these people need to just zip their mouths.

AVID 10th Wing Mount Buttons

AV1600-BLK 10th Wing Mount Buttons were designed after the success of our 8th scale wing button. 10th scale doesn’t require quite the all out nature of the 8th line so we removed the serrations (not doing 45 minute mains here or getting pounded on by other 8lb cars) and for the sake of a different look we counter sunk the screw hole to get that low profile design. We did keep the contact surface the same as the 8th Wing Button...
