We moved the time back to help handle the heat, keep moisture in the track, and also allowing for people who work or hang with the family saturday mornings. Also let those who put on the events get some sleep between friday night and saturday mornings.

ah the time thing, well after a long long decussion with our crew we felt that 5pm would be better for everyone. if u have to work sat u could still make second qua and the main. also when the sun goes down it is easier to keep up track mait. but nothing is in stone , we will see how this weekend goes then we will make final decission. also we run oval on friday nights, and it gives our crews time to breath before next group arrives. cya on the drivers stand..come hungry p.s. it looks like bar codes or something like that, i hope you stuff can climb

Ruffy,

I have 3 planes now! Hahaha. I'm actually on vacation here in Tampa, and a friend of mine and I are headed up there. I have my M8 still, and I am throwing together a SC truck just to have fun with.

Cool!
LiveRC cam's working great! Track looks like fun.
Having never been to NewRed before, what items do we need to bring?
Such as:
Tables, Chairs, Fans, Generator, is there any AC room space for pitting available for rent? etc...
Thanks.

We have lighted pitting with tables and chairs, a/c compressor (normally but i think its having issues at the moment), wash area, concession stand with almost everything. pitting is first come first serve and there's over 7000sq ft of it covered. You may need a power strip and 25ft cord. fan optional of course.

Thanks Mason,
Track looks great over LiveRC, but the liveRC feed skips. Maybe try a different output to get a smooth video out.

Looking forward to checking your track out tomorrow. By chance, what tires are most running tonight?
