The Race To Richmond will be held this Friday, here at G's. The winner will receive 4 tickets to the NASCAR Race, a RV rental to get there and special parking. It is through Bob Rocks and WAYZ. If anyone is interested in being a turnmarshal, let us know.

Yesterday was a great racing day if not for the rain in the middle

How about ether:
- Increase the kick-up after the back straightway (when you go from right to left)
or
- Bring the lender for that kick-up, may be a foot closer together

What do you guys think?

Great lay out!!!

Hello race fans.....had a question for short course tires. This past weekend, a few people mentioned the fact that the stock tires on my Ultima SC were not the best for traction, and suggested upgrading. Which tires are suggested to generally work best at the track? Thanks.

I'd suggest Grid Irons or Raptors for SCT.

Those work at the other area tracks as well, so if you travel you'll be ready to go.

As you can see, everyone has there own "likes". I think it mostly depends upon an individuals driving style, as to what works for them. I think the main concensus is AKA City Blocks. Robin

Yep, Panther Raptors Super Soft compound with the Orange Closed cell inserts from them as well. Every one here at G's has seen what they can do!

Wanted to let our R/C racing community know that we lost a R/C racer this week, Brian Daugherty. We will miss his smiling face and good humor. Heartfelt sympathy to his family and best friend, Brent Benedict. Garland, Robin, & Garland III
