have to ask michael as it's 4wd and a .12 engine it should be better handling. you don't need much motor at thunder but you got to get the power down.

Thanks Robert, just keep me posted. Even if there is not a class I may still come down just to see how it compares to the trucks.

First the race reposts for this past weekend
Oval Friday
With michael skeen getting back to the track with his new hyperdrive and resetting tq 83/4:02.75 and main track record to 82 4:00.85 I think oval is going to get more fun. see the results here
Offroad Saturday
let me say that it was fun calling the races Saturday night/sunday morning. with 125 entrees for a club race we had some of the closest mains I think you can have as one was lost by .01 second. Dan Reino in Gas truck and Aaron Bigger in 1/8th Buggy taking the top spots in our 2 largest classes with both having nearly 40 entrees each. Even our electric classes were close races. The best show was Jermey Newsome bumping from the D to the B and missing the A by 1 second. check out all the results here
Onroad Sunday
back to a regular groove with onroad no records set but the "B" main qualifing top 4 was seperated by 5 seconds and the "B" main proved to be intense. see the results here


now a word from the track owner Michael Skeen

we weren't expecting that many people we apologize for the lack of pit spaces and that late hours. I know several people had to go home before it was over.
Robert did the best he could to keep the races flowing as smooth as possible especially since it was double our highest entry count for the year.
We are looking at either starting earlier on the big weekends say 1pm or doing a pre-entry system and limiting the number of entries we want to make sure everyone gets what they paid for we just had no idea that many people would show up. I believe the racer shoud get 3 heats and the mains for their money.
We will be more prepared for next time and make sure everyone has a good time. Sorry for the long hours.
Any suggestions is appreciated. Let me know what you guys think on changing the start time and or pre entries

thanks

Michael Skeen

that would be cool you need to take off work early friday and let scott TRY to come over here and get me with a oval pan car. I think I have him covered like I did with 12th scale! it would be good to get to hang with you guys again.

we are talking about starting at 1pm on saturday also so we can get out earlier. we had people from little rock and mississippi and georgia and alabama and kentucky it was crazy!!!!!

Oval and off-road sounds good to me. Maybe Joe and I can make it over sometime soon. I think 12th scale was about 50/50 but I bet you have the stats stashed back somewhere...lol Let's run 13.5's in oval. I don't remember what a brushed motor looks like?

Carpet or offroad sounds good. George Holcombe, Scott and myself have been running those 18th scale Scalpels in a garage of an old house I have and it's been a blast. I would rather come over to do some offroad as my oval stuff is a little harder to move around.

Will Onroad always be raced on Sundays now? Any plan to go back to Saturdays for Onroad?

sorry no more saturday. after having 3 people show up saturday to race the last 2 times it's just not a good day for onroad in the area. plus we moved the offroad start time up to 1pm saturday with the doors open at 10am. 125 offroad entrees has forced us to start earlier on saturday.
