We are the only permanent 1/10th scale indoor facility in Scotland with 3 tracks dedicated to offroad, onroad and drift. Both our onroad and offroad track are equipped with amb lap timing equipment. The 3 tracks are open twice a week all information about for your first visit to the club can be found on the about us page. The tracks are open to all levels of experience weather you are new to the hobby or an experienced driver everyone is welcome to come along and join in the fun.

On Road


ARCCC onroad track is our purpose built permanent track, The track is also equipped with amb timing equipment which allows our members and visitors who have amb transponders to check their lap times and also gives your personal best lap time.

The onroad track is host to 3 classes these are listed with details below

Touring car class

These cars are scale representations of the tin top cars that race in the BTCC and WTCC. Popular cars look like BMW, Mazda, Alfa and many more recogniseable models.They are the fastest class currently racing at ARCCC.
These cars are generally built round a carbon fibre chassis with alloy bulkheads, 4wd with belt drive transmissions and lots of adjustability.
They are very rewarding to drive and is the premier on road class at ARCCC, but remain accessible for all skill levels as our experienced members will be glad to help

Rules for Touring cars

  • Our Club runs loosely to BRCA regualtions regarding construction of the cars.
  • Cars can be powered by either 27/19 turn brushed or 17.5 brushless motors (non outlaw versions)
  • We run our cars to "blinky" rules ie no boost or turbo, preferably with an ESC running with blinky software.
  • Tyre addative is allowed, but only indoor carpet addative and not the oily outdoor type.
  • Warmers are not banned but we would prefer it if they are not used to keep it cheaper for everyone.

M Chassis Class (Mini)

The M chassis is a great fun class for both beginners and experienced drivers the m chassis class is raced with the torque tuned 540 tamiya motor this is a rule for anyone racing this class this keeps the class at an affordable level for everyone and because everyone's car runs the exact same motor it is purely down to driving skill and is also a good onroad class for beginners to run in as there driving skills will improve with plenty of practice.

M03, M05 and M07 chassis are allowed to run in the M Chassis Class

Formula 1

Formula 1 or F1 are 1/10th replicas of the real thing and is a difficult class as the cars take alot of skill to handle. They have a selection of different front and rear wings that are interchangeable depending on the track your running on aswell as different types of tyres in different compounds.

Rules for Formula 1
Relaxed - preferably 21.5 motor

PLEASE NOTE THAT IF USING LIPO BATTERIES AT THE TRACK THESE MUST BE PLACED IN A LIPO BAG WHEN CHARGING NO EXCEPTIONS.

Off Road


ARCCC offroad track is our purpose built permanent track that hosts a series of jumps and the famous ARCCC wall feature. The track is also equipped with amb timing equipment which allows our members and visitors who have amb transponders to check their lap times and also gives your personal best lap time.

The offroad track is host to 4 classes these are listed with details below

1/10th offroad buggy

This class is where we race both 2wd and 4wd buggies these buggies can be RTR or built from a kit where you add your own radio gear, servos esc and motors. (recommend motor turn for ARCCC is 7.5turn) This can be a very fast paced class at the track due to it being a brushless setup but again it is a class where you can progress from the holiday buggy class when you are ready.

1/10th offroad truck

This class is similar to the 1/10th offroad buggy class apart from they are trucks instead of buggies and again is one of the fast paced classes on the track.

The Holiday buggy class

This class is a fun class to participate in and is aimed at Beginners level although more experienced racers do like to partake in the fun element of it so it is class for all levels. The buggies themselves are ran stock from the box with the only upgrades allowed at present is the ball bearings and are powered by a stock 380 motor which allows Beginners to compete and learn how to drive at a nice speed but also for more experienced racers it allows the racing to be about skill. This is also a fairly cheap class to begin with when racing.

Vintage/ Old skool class

this class is a class dedicated to models from the past from the likes of Kyosho, Tamiya Team Associated, Losi etc. These are the buggies where most of the experienced drivers got into the hobby when they were younger and although they run the typical 540 motors they can be upgraded to running brushless (recommended 10.5t brushless) but models do have to have upgrades to run the brushless set up.

PLEASE NOTE THAT IF USING LIPO BATTERIES AT THE TRACK THESE MUST BE PLACED IN A LIPO BAG WHEN CHARGING NO EXCEPTIONS.

Drift


As a hobby, radio-controlled drifting is one of many variations of R/C car types, Informal or formal practice events and competitions are held worldwide. When one judging RC drifting competitions, RC drifting typically follows the guidelines and judging criteria set by professional drifting organizations like the D1 Grand Prix. These judging criteria often include drift factors such as drift line, drift angle, speed, and show factor. Some RC drifting competitions include the use of tsuiso or tandem-drift competition in which competitors are paired together to drift in a lead-chase format. This hobby was founded in Japan but has gained popularity in other countries. There have been a few competitions set in the UK that has led some of the best RC drifters to compete in high tier completions all over the world such as the TDC in Thailand.

A notable aspect of RC drifting is the creation and customization of the vehicle body or shell. Using paint, decals, and other craft type items some enthusiasts make replicas of their favourite real-world drift cars or come up with their own unique designs. Additional aesthetic modifications include LED light kits, ground effects, wide body kits, Front Mounted Intercoolers, decals, flared guards, and roll cages so they can achieve a realistic looking drift car. The aesthetics of painting one's own car is also a point of interest for some hobbyists. Some will go as far to create their own shells. Made of styrene and other materials.
