Also I'm glad to see that you musterd up enough balls to publicly state how you feel about TRS and it's dynamics.
I wasn't implying that your were pointing the finger, but there were weeks the only 1 or 2 people showed up for a race day and the race was canceled, thats what i was getting at.

on the other hand its a shame that i am the ONLY one that publicly stated how I feel about TRS and its dynamics. If more people would publicly post what they really think or say in the pits in private conversations maybe some things would change at the track. The low turn out is NOT due to lack of interest in RC in altoona, think back a few years when we had 20-30 racers weekly, not EVERYONE that has stopped coming lost interest, granted some may have totally lost interest, but everyone else stopped coming for other reasons and if everyone posted their opinion I think those reasons would become quite clear, Then poss. something could be done about it. All the private bi*ching and moaning is not gonna change a thing. lets get it out in the open and see if things change. I would hate to see r/c DIE in Altoona but I am afraid if something is not done soon, that seems to be where the path is leading!

Default Sunday !!!!!!

First off are we even racing? Come on guys with Slash's! We had 6 to 12 on any week in the winter and you all still got em. Bring them out this week and you could help to get things rolling again. I have raced at G's [Garlands] a couple times in the last month or so and they get 12 to 20 a week. It is really fun to race with that many trucks. We could have a big class also if we could get some one to race! Where you at[ Rematt's,Mcmullin[sp?],Travis,Jude and son,Josh,Stritty,Chuck,Trevor,Ben,Eric,Jared ect.?]. Lets get er going! Great weather this week! I propose we run three 6min qualifier's and a 10 min main. Anyone interested. This format is run weekly at G's and takin in well! No way we should be running 6 or 7 min main's, very least 8min. Im in how bout you????????????????????? Lets try to have power and timing up an hour at least before race time !!!!!!!!

Matt we kicked the idea around but needed a third team member.Also the fact that Brent would have to stay up on the stand for a hour as with 10 or more teams it is to crowded to move his scooter up and down. I think we are headed to Richfield next week instead. I dont know about the whoops sect. and the huge vertical jump for Slash but I would like to support Aaron as things PROGRESS up there!

BTW how is Zach doing bro?

as far as me having to sit at the drivers stand for an hour, I could care less ill sit up there no problem, especially since they are building that new section for wheelchairs. Ill just chill while the other 2 race...find a 3rd driver and im in.....but i would also like to get up and support Aaron too. So either way I am in both tracks are accessible and i can actually see the track at both places, so your call!!

We drastically changed the whoop section today. It is now a rhythm section you can jump through if your crafty with the throttle finger. July 25 is cash race there with %100 pay out!-buggy, truggy, slash, mt

Cant make Toona this weekend cause of shows in Pittsburgh...
