Last Saturday, was a good day apparently.
The weather held up and everyone got some good running time I heard. Too bad I didn't get to stick around and bang around for a while.
The track was a little late getting set up as the person that brings the stuff down to Lansdowne was a little late, but we got everything up and going by 6:30. They ran till about 9pm and I think everyone was kind of sad they closed down. The lights do come on at night right now, so we do get some decent run time, but when we hit the peak of summer and day light sticks around till 9pm...expect us to be out there till 11pm
The turn out was great...hope we get more people coming out to support this track. We all don't want to see a good thing go, as we know doing something like this is not easy. Cheers to Ken and the rest of the organizers.
B is right...not a lot of people run electric at Lansdowne, but I am probably going to run that more than I am going to run my nitro this year here. I don't want to give my new car that much of a thrashing this year, as this is my second year into the sport and I am not riding the walls like rails...hehehe...Just trying to keep the vehicle top notch and in racing condition.
Mike M...nice to see you on this board too buddy...If you are looking for a on road touring car, I would suggest the few that people are talking about in here. Everyone's got there picks of course and everyones got the ones they wouldn't touch with a 10 foot pole. I do have a Kyosho VoneR Evo for sale with a 2-speed and centax clutch for sale if you are interested. No electronics and engine, but comes with a banged up still working pipe and header. PM me on RCPITSTOP if you are interested.
If you want to get into any sort of club race or trophy race with touring...I suggest you get a 1/10 because that is pretty much what they run down here...the one you are talking about is one that is not run too often here...but they do in the states. Even though they run in the states, it sure is a dying breed...Looks really fun though!
Yeah, most of the high end cars have 2-speed these days...it is a must for people that want to go fast and for the ones that race.
I am sure your LHS could give you a hand, picking your next weapon as Purple would say.
The track is going to be open on Tuesday, so anyone that has time should come on out with there toys and enjoy some good clean fun. Please call ken from the number provided in the first post to see if they are going out. Set up time is 5pm and race till about 9pm or so, when the lights start to dim out. Hope to see all you guys out there.
