It would be really nice if we could get a list not of just drivers names but
brand of car, motor, battery,body,esc, etc and anything unique about the car.
Did one brand of car seem to dominate or be superior or did it sem more like the cars were evenly matched and it was driver skill the primary factor. Were there any products new Spectrum rx/tx which stood out?
-----------On another subject I wish some effort was done to make the tracks look authentic. Why do RC tracks all seem to look like they were built by somone dumpster diving at a consrtuction site. If you are going to use PVC or 2x4s, why not paint them to look like the barriers in full scale racing. Why not racing theamed advertising signs alon the course like you see in full size in other words why not try to build a scale version of a real track. At the very least have the track surface be a different color tan the non track infield areas.
First I'd like to say the all the boards were freshly painted for this race weekend (with over 290 drivers running 1000's of laps over a 5 day period) they don't take long to start looking used again.
Second there were more Sponser banners around that track than i have ever seen, they might not have been low like at track level but they were all around.
The facility looked great and was by far the best run event i have ever seen. Scotty did a great job and im sure like myself everybody aggreed how nice a program was run
