If you're bored with bashing, and want to take your RC hobby to the next level, then our RC Park and 1:10 Scale Indoor Off Road track located in the Albany, NY area is the place to be. Serving the Greater Northeast Region since 2013, we offer off road RC racers an amazing experience, which is why enthusiasts travel from all over Upstate New York (NY), Massachusetts (MA), Connecticut (CRT) and New Jersey (NJ) for some of the most intense, best indoor off road rc racing in the NY, Tri-State and Northeast area.

On our site you'll find all of the information you need to be prepared to visit the Full Throttle RC Park Off Road Track, even if you've never been here before. Be sure to check our Classes & Rules so you know what you can run car or truck wise, and our Get Race Ready section for a list of popular tires that our Club Racers use on a regular basis. Speaking of Club Racers, we post and update the most recent results on a weekly basis, and if you're a Club Racer check out the current point standings to see where you stack up vs the local competition. You should also visit our Event area of the site to see what's up and coming for the next Trophy Race.

Our Gallery will give you an idea of what our facility looks like. We're equipped with powered pits, a massive Drivers Stand, a 100x60 track and THE HIGHEST BITE SURFACE for max traction.

Our Surface BITES, And That's A Good Thing!

 

For those of you who have never been to our Off Road track you should know that our surface is one of the highest bite tracks in the Northeast. We run on a hard packed lo-abrasive clay. After much trial and error we have been able to find the best amount of water to apply to the track, and at the best frequency to give racers the maximum amount of traction. Below you'll find popular tires for the various RC classes that we run. We've also provided a short checklist of things you'll need to bring with you to have the best time.

General Tire Recommendations
Front: Slicks
Rear: Slicks
Compound: Super Soft home made (ex. AKA, JConcepts, Proline Indoor Tires) or Panther brand Clay or Super Soft. Either option should be scuffed in before running.

ProLite Buggy
Front: Slicks or Bar Codes (super soft and scrubbed in well)
Rear: Slicks or Bar Codes (super soft and scrubbed in well)
Compound: Super Soft home made (ex. AKA, JConcepts, Proline Indoor Tires) or Panther brand Clay or Super Soft. Either option should be scuffed in before running.

General Tire Notes
The above recommendations are generally what work well. We do our best to keep track conditions consistent, so racers have confidence in making slicks from a brand new pair of tires. In some cases, for some classes, in some conditions other tires with tread have worked better than slicks. As RC Racing goes, we recommend that you arrive at the track early enough to test and tune prior to racing.

TESTIMONIALS

WHAT OUR DRIVERS THINK

 

What a great time! Having been out of RC Racing for over 20 years it was a little intimidating walking into Full Throttle. After a few minutes of being there I was greeted by fellow racers, and have been going every race day for the last 5 months. Great track with a Great Team.
Full Throttle is just what this area needed! The track surface is amazing, and the best traction I’ve ever run on indoors. The facility has a lot of character, and the locals are extremely competitive. A must if you live in the Northeast!
