View Full Version : Summit Indoor Flat Tracking 70's

01-18-2010, 06:31 PM
just thought i would post this up so if anyone is in the area they will know about it and to kind of get a head count of who all is going to be there or racing..i know myself (forum name) (ban one), Jason Specht(big specht), Rex(rex racing), Kiser(kiser), Justin lapp, Scott Wills, and Chris. (forum name) shold be racing from around here. It is this Sat Jan 23rd i will have to check on the starting times. If your around come out for a good laugh...i will be posting videos from my gopro HD camera after the races are over.

I think Andy is gonna make it as long as he gets his hubs done. There is a few other guys i need to call so hopefully we have a good turn out.

You guys left quite an impression last year form what the promoter told me. Can you post a few details on what equipment you guys run in your class? Just some general ideas about size limitations, etc. in case sombeody else whant to throw in. If guys had stocker 70's, or TriZingers would that be suitable? What about 110's or 125 unsuspended trikes?

Also, keep in mind if you get 3 or 4 guys wanting full size trikes, you could have your own class.

I was hoping to make one of these this year, but I should be arriving in Japan about the time the races start. If any of the OTC guys or others want to run a full size trike class, speak now.

:cry:I got my 150 running finally now I have bad shift problems on the same brand new motor!!!!:cry: Pops out of 2 into 3 and vice vera???? Hard to find nuetral and so on and so on:wondering:wondering Specht said he has extra hubs, I can get my tires back Kiser if needed and use his. I am prolly going to run this POS one way or the other. Very dissappointed in it... although I will say this thing absolutely freakin screams:naughty: Just hope I can get the shift problem fixed....if not......run er' anyway. Tim I think we would need to class the stockers and zingers as well as the 90, 110, and 125's as these bikes that they ride absolutely rip and are nothing near stock....just my 2 cents. That would be great to have a couple of classes though, I would be up for all of them!!

update.... a few beers and help from planetminis forum and found shift drum bolt loose under ignition cover!!!! Yey for me finally!!! Just need the tires but I am a for sure Saturday as long as nothin' else breaks fellows!!! Good lord is this thing a absolut hanful by the way!! Thanks to all the Mad70 gang..... they know who they are................thanks again for everything.....can't wait.....

01-21-2010, 12:06 AM
Tim we dont really have any limitations on what we run. Basically just a 70 frame with whatever you want for a motor. We have guys running anything from mild to wild built 70 motors to 160cc motors. Tire setup depends on what the rider likes. If there was enough interest in making another class for 110,125 or bigger trikes we could put something together for that. I personally would like to see that because i would do it for sure. I have a 110 i could take and i would race my 350 if we had a class so let me know guys if there are any of you wanting to put other classes together.

Is this always the same weekend/time as the motocros, or how do they do it?

Billy are you joking?.....BULLDOZER it wipes away all the bumps...then puts them back a month later:crazy: I believe they run equistrian type events between motos....Naa the dates are apart from one another. The horse thing is truejust between moto events...I believe the dirt stays on the floor until April when Summit does it's annual GUNSHOW!!(it brings all the local gun junkies) and tail gate deals:naughty:.

Forgive me, never been there and didn't know anything about it. I thought maybe they had a different building they ran the flat track events in...

Ok guys, here go the rules :), even though we[mad 70s] don't pay any real attenion to them :wondering, The bike starts out an atc70, 199 lbs and under can run up to 125cc any mods you want, 200 lbs and up can run anything they want as long as it is based on a 70 or 50 honda style lay down motor, right now the biggest motors we [ mad 70s] have in the trikes running are 3 of us have 160cc motors :naughty:. thats what we know of.SOME of us tend to CHEAT a little :lol: others just flat admit what we have. any way these bikes were built just for fun and have gotten carried away, we have no class at any real event so we show up , trash the s#$% out of them like we do at home and have a good time :D , only a few of us take it any farther than that:twisted:

01-21-2010, 11:22 PM

Billy not ripping on ya, the building is a shoe box race for MX. The room for error is small and passing is tight. The 70's oval makes it look larger than it is. Ask anyone who ran the MX event and they'll all agree...not alot of elbow room. This is one of my many complaints of why I really don't like the Summit indoor series. Don't get me wrong Action is top knoch, promoters do a good job bringing out the crowds...I just did this series 15yrs back and can't remember 1 race weren't cold and the 2strokes being tempermental to the changing temp...in out in out and a long day to boot becaues there's always 25+ different class to run. Thanks for the times and $...doubt I'll make it. I don't have near the motor to compete in the Heavy weight class. My 70 is bare bones stock and frankly I'm a bit too stocky for it to race and be competive.

01-22-2010, 06:52 AM
Hey Demon who would the few cheaters be??:wondering:lol::lol: Lookin like my tires wont be done but I will be ther hoping to bum a set for the race from someone. Bike seems to be running well, stats a little rough when cold but Kyle says he has the 110 to tow. Hey max, hope to see ya there!! See ya guys there....

01-22-2010, 03:51 PM

01-22-2010, 11:37 PM

Can't wait to throw some dirt in your face!!:lol::lol: kiddin'.........glad to make the show and just hope to finish the race!!!:naughty: signed nitro 150!!!!!!! look out.........I may leave a piece of my motor on that track cause I don't give a ratt's Arss!!!! Big rpm's and fan entertainmet!!! Scatterbound I am sure!!! Thanks to all again for makin' me spend all this money to scatter this 150 tommorrrow:lol::naughty::crazy::crazy:

Some fancy paint jobs there.

01-24-2010, 11:42 AM
working on getting some videos up now..first one should be up on my youtube channel in about hour and a half.. i posted the main first then will do the heats and practices... the address is http://www.youtube.com/user/banditatc70

01-24-2010, 02:45 PM
the main is up now....workin on the heats and practices now


01-24-2010, 02:47 PM
I was wondering what they did with all that dirt...VERY COOL....you gotta bring that next month and let me whip-it around the Super 8 parking lot....

01-24-2010, 04:01 PM
man that looks like a blast, GPX motors, 160cc seems to be the hot ticket for these..

Can you post some more vids and pics of the event? you have my attention man looks like a blast....

01-24-2010, 05:10 PM
this would be the second practice that we ran... if its not to clear yet give it a bit for youtube to process the vid and it will be clear.

01-24-2010, 06:43 PM
That is freaking great video. That looks like it'd be sooooooo much fun! I know how much of a blast I had when I was flat tracking my 250R, that looks even better!

01-24-2010, 08:55 PM
That is hands down the most fun I ever had on a trike! Racin' is so close and tight and it seems the room for error is none being how touchy those critters are. It is like a restrictor plate track in nascar.....let out of it or check up and you are toast or rear ended as the main video shows in the beginning lap. I found out quickthat there is hardly any room for a mistake with those things and I cannot wait till Feb!! Thinking of building another if someone else want to ride it??? I am sure that would not be a hard seat to fill?? Just dont know if I got the time??? Great video....real nice job man. Kiser, I want my spark plug back and want you to put that old one in next time at Summit!!:lol::lol::lol:

01-24-2010, 10:38 PM
too cool,looks like alot of fun.ill have to get there someday

01-24-2010, 10:56 PM
Great vid, you guys move pretty good on those.

01-24-2010, 11:46 PM
What a great time it is to watch these "Mad 70's" ... the announcer descibed the class as "pyschos on 3 wheels" LOL, I loved it. I hope I can be there for the next one !

01-25-2010, 05:36 PM
How does one get involved in this? I have to admit i have watched the videos over and over and think man i would like to try this. I think the rear wheels/tires might be difficult to find out here in Cali though...

01-25-2010, 06:02 PM
pretty plentiful on ebay. If you keep an eye out, you can catch a deal here and there. Got mine for under 40.00 shipped. Just need machine shop to turn your hubs down and you would be right in the game. Well worth it I thought.

01-25-2010, 06:22 PM
what do you look for under ebay for the tires and wheels? Slicks and what size wheels? 70 stock?
