Hey Alex, good to hear from ya! Unfortunatley the Slash class has been hit-or-miss as of late, but well do a roll call for the 19th and hopefully get some guys to come out!


Roll Call: who's in for Slash next weekend?

Brad, hate to sound like a d*ck here but the everything in altoona is hit-or-miss not just the slashes. I'll go as far as to say the OWNERS are hit-or-miss....showing up to run a race less then a 1/2 hour before it starts is just not what I consider enough time, contrary to what the ppl in altoona seem to think, guys that run electric cars do need electricity to charge batterys, and some ppl would like to go run a few practice packs before the race actually starts. That is kinda hard to do when there is no timing system up and running and no power to recharge packs. Got to take into consideration that not everyone has multiple batterys that can be chared the night before, and anything less then 30 mins is not enuff time to re-charge a pack (typically) With that being said, I am lucky enough to have more then 1 battery so i MIGHT be in for next week, no promises. Headed to garlands tomorrow and I just might start going there when I get the bug to race.

GDux, I've been trying to get to as many tracks as I can that are with in driving distance. I cant say I am any faster for it, but, I feel like I can get going with a lot less practice.

We tried Richfields today and had a lot of fun. We're talking about trying G's Raceway and I need to get back to McCulloughs again this summer. And I'll be back at TRS soon.

So many tracks and so little time.

It will make a huge difference, beneficially, by going to different tracks. You are forced to adapt your driving and car setup to accomodate what you need. Racing on the same track all the time gets boring... Since the cat's out of the bag I hope to see you on a track soon

BTW does Medina still have the monsterous Talladega berm turn? I was there a few weeks ago for rd.1 of the Ohio State series and it was a blast except Ryan Lutz was there... WOW...

As of 3 weeks ago the berm was still there at Medina and it was amazing. I have never been able to blast through a turn at nearly top speed with almost wide open throttle like that.

And that off camber turn just before the bern was cool too.

If anyone gets the chance, they should check it out.

I in know way was or am pointing the finger at the Slah class or the persons who run them. Just stating the obvious for the question that was aked. I would hate to see Alex or anyone drive a distance to find out there would be no one there to race the class he was running. We have had a field of 1/8th scale buggies the past 2 weeks.

Also I'm glad to see that you musterd up enough balls to publicly state how you feel about TRS and it's dynamics.

That "Talladega turn- into the straight that's- diagonally down the center of the track at WOT"... is worth the drive to OH I'm going to see if I can find a picture of it... Can you imagine Lutz doing 31-32 second consistant laps on it

Very well put! I'm in the process of finding that out know! Also meeting/mixing it up with other people your not used to racing with greatly attributes to improved driving and set-up knowledge!

I would like to run somewhere this weekend. I've only been able to race a few times this year. I keep getting worse and worse.
