Looking forward to the race at Eclipse. We just got in a shipment of Pardus tires that feature the new Tuning Haus rims, they are really nice, and most importantly no breakage.

Ed,
It's an indoor race on carpet.
We run the Pardus tires as the spec tire.
We will have plenty of tires available for sale at the track

You are correct on that, I thought you were talking about this weekends race.
The Toledo round will be outdoors and we will be allowing the TCS Pit Shimizu tires as well as the Pardus tires

Yes you are correct. I apologize for any confusion. The Race is Saturday April 12th at Eclipse Hobbies. Doors open at 8am. There is quite few hotels within seconds or minutes of the race track. There is also a mall and restaurants within minutes as well. We will have food available at the track We will be racing Off Road Friday night if anyone comes in early they can run the layout with jumps. Friday night after racing we will be removing the jumps for late night On Road practice and finishing touches on the track.

See Ya there,

So it has been a while since the last report out on here, and I have been extremely busy over the last couple of weeks.
Thanks to Phil and the gang at Eclipse Hobbies for hosting us, the track layout was by far the most unique that the series has run on.
Congratulations are in order for Mr Fabio Evangelista who clinched the championship at Eclipse, and to Shawn Rayfield for locking up the runner up spot.
Third is still technically up for grabs, but there is a slight gap.
Which brings us to the next order of business, the final round.
We will be in Toledo on Saturday May 10 at the 1/8th scale track.
We will be allowing the TCS branded Pit Shimizu tires, which will also be the spec tire for the next UF1 Midwest series. I have the tires in stock for purchase and they are $42/ set which includes wheels and inserts. You can run the Pardus tire if you want, but traction may be minimal.
We will run USGT and 1/8GT Electric as the support classes for this race.
In the event of rain I am making arrangements to run at HobbyStop West which is a mile from the gas track.
Hope to see you all there

How many USGT cars do you typically get (or expect at Toledo)?

I didn't race much this past winter due to scheduling conflicts, but I was hearing that they were getting at least a solid heat every week.
For this event we might see 6-10

Thinking about joining you guys on Sat to race GT8. How many GT cars are you expecting, what time do you plan to start on Sat, and how much are entry fees?

What time does the track open on Saturday?

Will the track be treated? (sugar water, VHT, whatever)

The track is off of woodville rd maybe a mile east of Hobby Stop West.
It was behind the mall, but from what I'm seeing the mall is being or has been torn down. When you get off of 280 you will head east about a 1/2 mile and it will be on the left. Follow the service drives around to the back of whatever is left of the mall. You will see the pits and drivers stand there. I would think the track will be open around 9 but I have not confirmed that

I'm going with the assumption that you will start around noon? Looking forward to meeting you guys?

Here is a link to the clubs website where the track is at if that helps: http://toledooneeighthracers.com/home

Thanks to the Toledo gang for having the track in great condition on Saturday. It was a perfect day for racing.
