Default Sorry Bro's

I recently made Nitro a non-level class, I need to apologize to the expert guys. It had worked for awhile, with putting the slow people in Rookie Touring, but this weekend... Ouch! I didn't get to see the races because my wife and kids were in the heat after the nitro heats (busy getting them ready). However, upon starting the video editing I saw the mayhem! From now on, we will have 2 nitro classes like the old days. There is a way to have the system actually take all your previous races, and group everyone based on their true abilities! So all you do is signup, and the PC determines based on who's there that day, what class you belong in. I will have to speak with JLAP on how to do it. There seems to be some interesting debate about what class some people belong in.... no Bubbles, your not getting out of expert and back into sportsman!
Once again, sorry for the screw-up! Also, we plan to make new outside boards for the track, anyone having connections to get hinges cheap, let me know!

p.s. my wife said I was grumpy, sorry if I was short with anyone?

Default Outside Boards

Chris;

I think most of us actually like the outside Boards (pipes).

They are easy on the Cars and keep everything contained pretty well.

Maybe another way to keep them coupled together better, but other than that, no complaints from me (nice change, huh?).

Default That was the plan

I wanted the cars to sustain as little damage as possible when they hit the outside wall. However, I am concerned with cars occasionally going over and under the pipes? I plan to put foam on the board at the end of the straight away, to stop any possible damage (wood boards). There also people in the IE who want to run their 235mm 1/10ths, and some 1/8th on-roads. We plan to extend the track 40-60 feet, and build a turn in for the electrics, so they are running the same distance they run now. So elctrics would have the 110 foot straight (turn in to turn out), and the gas would have 130-170 feet. That would create a maximum track size of 200X60.

p.s. new video is on the website!
