Had a great day of racing sunday chasing the trifecta of yellow jordans. I brought some new chassis to race but they got benched for the good ol McLaren f103 which was absolutely hooked up for the first time after taking some set up advice from vessel at the end of last season. Oh and brad, it was fun chasing you around the circuit, next time though I will make a better first lap and put the pressure on boy!! As for the track it was really fast and fun especially the combo curbing, although I did test the limits once to many and flipped my car costing me a better finish!! Overall I think it was the best competition from the a main to the c main not a hack on the track, well maybe coon he was hitting everything. Cant wait to get outdoors and on asphalt

That was "The Gates" first large F1 race and the courtesy shown by every racer top to bottom was outstanding. We were running 9 second laps (occasionally sub 9's) and everyone gave each other room. I finished 4th and I was in the "C" due to a part failure in the qualifying session. I had no issues with traffic that I would not have had in a faster group.

Thanks Wayne for the results. Looking forward to making it over there for the warmup and/or the Halloween Classic.

TSRCAR along with my self, will be hosting an UF1 Midwest series event Saturday Aug 17th. The race will use the UF1 rules and race format, which can be found at UF1rc.com.

Entry fee will be $20 and 15$ for the second class. USGT will be run along with the UF1 cars. Awards (think large "apple juice glass") will be given out to the TQ and top three of the USGT race.

The track is located at
Hamilton County Fairgrounds
7801 Anthony Wayne Ave.
Cincinnati, Ohio 45216

Race schedule

Friday Aug 16th
Gates open at 4:00 pm
Practice till 8:30 pm

Saturday Aug 17th
Gates open at 7:45 am
Open practice 8:00 am to 11:45 am
Racing starts at noon


Hotels can be found at this link http://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotels-g5...io-Hotels.html

Some hotels maybe closer to the track but this is a good area to stay and has nicer hotels than ones that can be closer to the track.

Also check out things going on in Cincinnati, it also has special deals for the family! http://cincinnatiusa.com/

The track has limited electricity (generators would be welcome). Trailer and rv's are fine (no RV hook ups must have their own generator). Racers are encouraged to bring shade, tables, and chairs for pitting.
This should be an exciting event with the growing popularity of F1 rc racing. I look forward to seeing new and old faces at the race!

Well Ned I broke the kingpin in half after one hit of the wall, then the ride height spacer and bearing broke also. The small rear wing screws ripped through the side panels of the wing. After all that I got it running pretty good, and it seemed to respond to set up changes. I would by the hop up king pins from brad when you get to the track if you have not already, luckily he had a ton of parts with him at the track.

Thanks for the info. I did not know about the kingpin problem. I'll have to take a look at that for sure. It's weird that the spacer and bearing broke, never thought they would be an issue. Have you checked if other mfrs. spacers will fit? I don't like the plastic the wings are made from, too soft and flexible. Did you see my mods to use Tamiya wings? Turns out that the Tamiya rear crossmember drops right in and you can bolt on any std. wings. (Found this out after I hacked out a new custom part!!! ;-))

I'm a bit confused on the UF1 wing rules that seem to allow any molded wing. Since the older cars use wider rear wings and narrower front wings a "mix and match" could be a tuning tool at the expense of the scale realism they seem to be going for. I put the wide wing on the front to be a better bumper and the narrow one on the rear to match with to body. If UF1 rules don't define that the wings need to match the body, it will be interesting. (I requested a clarification but have not received and answer...)

I have the Fenix I-Mola conversion and think it has a simpler and easier to adjust rear suspension. Lots of options.

Still planning to make Cinci but having back issues that make it difficult to travel.

Thanks. I only wish that I could get better driving skills implanted but I'll be happy not to go numb halfway through the heat.
