The Race is 100% on for tommorow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We had 55 entrys last week. Should be a good "warm up" for the ProSeries.
1/8 buggy and Truggy, $20 to enter 50% payout to top 5.
We may not start till 1:00pm but since the new lights are up we'll geterdun!!
don't forget your shades

Again, the track will be significantly changed next week.

Speedski,

I think this guy can better answer some of your questions: nitrooffroad@rcprosites.com (Carlton) This is the guy that can answer all of your questions on the Pro Series Race. I doubt any one on these forums knows much about specific track rules and tech. Let us know what you find out.

Speed, I have talked with carlton a bunch about this. The RC PRO Is much more relaxed than what it used to be about track layouts. In the past you had to change the track completely before the event and not run on it prior to the rc pro race. What happened(since the tracks need money to work) is most tracks built a layout the week before the race(mon-thur) so they did not have to shut down. In return the tracks tore apart because they were so fresh and green. This in most cases did little for the racing and the racers who supported it.

We built our track with this in mind. So it can be rand clockwise our counterclockwise. We will reverse it for the RC pro event and add some additional things. To this point no one has ran backwards although we will have one race in may(23) that test it out. After that I'll add in some jumps, etc, and we are set to have fun

I think things will be fun RC PRO is a neat series and we have some cool tracks involved. I think I understood your questions but when online it's sometimes hard to read how a person is saying something. I would not sweat it, and we are gonna have a good time

See ya guys!

Thanks Alan, that was the answer I was looking for. I know RCP and the Tracks will make it right, I was NOT questioning that, or sweating it at all. I spoke with Jeremy and he said you guys were running it in reverse possibly, so it just got my curiosity going. I also heard the pipe I run is illegal too, so I just wanted some clarification on some things for my own personal knowledge (not that I have alot!!!) LOL

Thanks for the response.

Also, thanks for all the hard work you did to get this series going.

Hey Todd,
I thought the track change question had been answered on our forum. Like I stated out of all the racers I've talked to, no one has I asked me about it.
If you feel I attacked you then I publicly "appoligize"
I know you have been supportive of us, and we appreciate it.

I'll ya later
Thanks,KP
