Most of the racers around here either run 8th scale or short course so the bigger and faster the better. Looking forward to it and thank you for giving us another place to race
FZRC changed to 3rd Sunday for their 2013 Winter/Spring race series so I've had the 1st weekend open for B&B nitro sc the past two months and it's RAINED . They did race BUT it's an hour and a half drive, so I didn't go. S&S is about 40-45 min drive <<< better!

I have NO races for 2nd and 4th weekrnds <<< HINT HINT!!!!

===

I remember a track that "Raced under the lights" on Fridays!!!!!! Friday's may not be easy for some AND Plant City races that night.

We could use alittle input if you are interested in being a part of the
ground floor of the new track. Right now we are going to be
about 110 ft straight or so (give or take), and about 60 ft or so in width.
We do have room to go larger, in the future.
We have plenty of parking, restrooms, air , water, electricity, lights, driverstand, food and the Hobby Shop.
We are thinking of running evening races so that we dont interfere with any other daytime race programs. However we are interested in knowing everyones opinion on running times.
We are planning on running gas and electric, both 1/10th and 1/8th scale.
Our Hobby Shop will obviously be open during all race programs and will be accomidating all of the offroad racers needs. Any constructive input would be appreciated also anything that anyone would like to bring to the table would also be appreciated. Our plans our to have the grand opening of our new Offroad Track next month. We are moving ahead quickly.
We would like to Thank anyone in advance for your input.
Sincerely,
SS Hobbies and Raceway

(they run 1st and 3rd sat of the month) and the sat. before lake park(they run 2nd and 4th sun. of the month). fine tune it from there.

I was maybe 11-12yrs old going out to Steak&Shake (yeah, BACK IN THE DAY! indeed) with my ol man and his Canary Yellow Orig restored 69 Cougar Eliminator 427 FE and use to see you hand paint pin strips on Rat Rods/Hot Rods and Muscle cars alike. I then later on use to attend car shows and stuff like that you sponsored or ran (what ever the case)... Last time I saw u I believe was several yrs ago at the corner of of Anderson at Burger King and Winn Dixie... That's when I had my 2003 #1247 Terminator

I live literally across the street from Lake Park but they have the drivers stand down and rumor is 2 months to complete. I don't race and haven't since I was a kid, but I would not mind getting my rigs dirty and maybe getting my feet wet. Just not much going on with organized tracks near by beside B&B and that's near 40min away. Even if I don't "RACE" would be cool to get some practice fun runs.

sorry for babbling on...Good Times

The above is GOOD for me. Have 1st and 3rd Sun races already. Looking for a local track to race nitro SC.

It's been a LONG time coming, you talked about doing this two years ago at Lil' Dover with Bob and I.

Step ups/step downs are fun as well.
Just remember, a track doesnt need a bump/jump/ feature every 5 feet, to make it challenging.

Ronnie...It's great to see you still have the passion for R/C and giving everyone the opportunity to express theirs; keep up the hard work!

Dont become Marryed to it and be prepared to tweak and change it up at least twice a year. although, quarterly is probably better to keep the interest up. I know whatever you decide to do it will be "top notch" You have a great rep as a track owner and we will all support you.

It may even be a good idea to try and call all the tracks within two hours of you and introduce and make it known you want to work together not COMPETE.

What we do at FZRC is we have a shoveling Party and whoever shows up gets to have input on the track design. We are having one of those tonight. The important thing is to do something. even if its wrong. Some people wont like this or that but the fast guys will still be fast. Changing the layout periodically is everything. So experiment with different things. I had a real problem with off camber turns so we tried two of them on our last layout

You have problems with off camber turn cause your off camber!!!!

A change here or there every few weeks, make the track fresh.
