No more need in text messages, phone calls, or emails telling me that we need to reconsider the electric and Nitro together, or how wrong it is, or how unfair it is.

NO ELECTRICS AT THE W.I.N. event (except for the Slash class). I am sorry that I was just trying to be nice to the electric guys untill next year when they will get there own class.

For what it is worth the soil looks like it will pack NICELY.

Go to http://events.rcsignup.com/events/di...ent.cfm?ID=502 for motel information.

Chauncey whats up dude its Marcus Black from B&T. Hey dude if you run into some trouble with tires I am sure I will have an extra set of JConcept rubbers you can run. Find me at the race and I will make sure you have SICK traction. 850-819-8732


Ralph- No offense man, but you have been racing long enough to know exactly what is allowed at races. The only events that V3 tires are not allowed at is IFMAR/ROAR events. This race is the same EXACT format that is known at the Pro-Series and FSORS. If you have questions just shoot me a PM.

Andy- Theater style popcorn with extra butter? Extra jumbo soda? Come race with us homie!

Looking forward to seeing everyone at this event.

Marcus Black

No offense taking, its just a simple question. I have looked all over the place and have yet to find a rule package. I have been to too many events to find out the rules would be made up as we go along or cater to certain teams or individuals. (Your basic RC Pro Series rules will apply)
Now I'm not sure what that means?

If I had known that the V3 type tires were allowed I would have purchased some. However, I have already purchased tires so it is too late now. And please don't say that they will not be of any advantage, you know they will.

It seems odd that all this time has gone by and nothing has been brought forth as far as a set rule package. Comments have been made that it would be done but its a little late now.

I'm not upset or anything and I hope the event goes well, but if you want it to grow and make racers and sponsors happy you must set some guide lines and stick to them. Rules would be first I would think.

The whole nitro electric ordeal is a prime example. The solution is very simple, they run in their own class, not mixed up. Make a minimum of five or whatever for a class.

Its just a simple question, thats all.

You will have fun at Donnies, he has a cool oval track and the offroad looks like fun.
Will have to hook up at the race, I think all the Florida nuts will be pitting together.
