Well if they hadn't shut you down, the onroad guys day would've been ruined. Not that I care for racing onroad, just saying that it was a catch22 situation. onroad ond offroad tracks shouldn't be so close together anyways.

Like he said. It was a practice day for onroad. So who cares if your getting dust on a practice day. Put up a barrier btwn the tracks to divert the dust up and over the onroad track. I would have been pissed too

It only takes a minuscule amount of dust on a onroad track to ruin traction.

They need brooms. Thats why onroad sucks then if tiny dust ruins your day . Sounds like it's about the car and not about wheelin it.

They have a sprinkler system, but it wasn't hooked up yet. Listen guys, I dont want to put down the track. It is really a nice track. I was just disapointed is all. I work so much during the week and I am lucky to get a day in a week for RCing. I would have gone somewhere else to spend my day so I coulda got a full day in had I known there was a chance of not being able to run due to dust. No ill will to those guys. Just a learning experience is all.

Off road equals dust its no secret. If they cant operate both tracks at the same time, they either need a different location or should get there sprinkler system working. I agree its a catch 22 but either do one or the other - they cant seem to handle both.

Just my .02

Default I'm probably really gonna tee ya off...but

Both RCMadness and Wolcott planned to race today. I have not heard wether either got a decent sized crowd, but you likely could have raced today. RCM will race tomorrow, if it somehow stays good weather. And lastly, if you want to try indoors, RCExcitement will be running on the indoor track if the weather turns south.

I guess its a good thing I didn't head up there today then. I ran there a few times last year and its a beautiful track. It never really got dusty there at all from what I saw. I am surprised they had to shut down especialy with their track condition and the fence/drivers stand between the 2. Sucks to hear that dude. I do get the vibe there myself that it is an on-road preference track. If you want to run somewhere that you KNOW you will be able to run regardless of the weather RC Excitement is great because they got the indoor track that can be moved to.

The whole world already knows that you are "that" guy...

That's too bad, but we've all seen the onroad turnout there vs the offroad turnout. So........it's only a matter of time before that pavement is ripped up and the offroad track is expanded.
