Default n vs e

i think Jay and Tom pretty much have it covered.

been to alot of tracks myself this past year, pretty much the genral thing is simple,,

and as a comparison it's always been EXSACTLY like Monster trucks and Truggys,,

a guy shows up at any given track with his monster truck, and big suprise only one other MT shows up, guess what class he gets put in?? yep,, Truggy.

and if there's enough mt's,, there's genraly an mt class..

the same has been true with 1/8th electric and nitro.

Rob, you got the idea,, 3 is a class and how cool that is!!

but genraly, if there's only one or two, and that guy didnt bring anything else to race, and realy wants to race, usaly he is put in with nitro, and there simply isnt an electric class that week. pitting is simply enforced for the 1-2 electric cars, sometimes even made "longer" then it takes to pit a nitro car.

Sure keeping track of electric pitting would be a handfull,,,IF there were 10 nitro's and 10 E's together,, i'm simple talking about the times there arenot enough electrics to have there own class. (3+)

Please dont take any of this the wrong way, as i'm sure you guys will probably have enough E's to run a class, but i realy beleave it would be devistating to the overall outlook of the track to tell someone they cant race that day. chances are that guy isnt coming back nextime he wants to race, and probably will take people with him in the proccess.


oh and btw,, since this is a more serios subject, i feel i need to let anyone know, that in anyway thought i was serios, about the "not racing at altoona in 2010" post.
that was 100% a joke, and was directed towards Brad and his lingere closet lol.

cant wait for spring, i look forward to viseting and racing with you guys soon!

Default WOW!!!!

I agree with Rob 100%! If there isn't enough electric 1/8 scales I will run mod 4wd 1/10 or eventually get the D8 nitro ready.


Morris, I guess your the heater/heat-boy, or maybe you're in heat! Idon't know? But we will eventually get to shoot it out NITRO vs. NITRO! I do remember your on-road prowess, it was impressive, but I also remember your off-road effort Maybe you should stick to touring cars

OUCH!

I'm still trying to figure out what Matt was taring last year? Maybe he used tar on the new pavement extension, did he use tar paper on the roof of the new computer stand?

I had to get some trash talking in A little friendly trash talk makes for better bench racing in the pits

Enough said. I've never known Rob to be anthying but FAIR!

On a side note, if I get a Jammin 4x4 Corr Truck can I run it in the Slash class next year at the Altoona Raceway?

Dont knock it until you try it! Its a lot of fun even though they adhere to a buch of silly rules that ruins all the fun for everyone that doesnt want to follow them.

absolutely not. the slashes are 2wd and that is 4wd. and it would not make for fair racing i would assume it is better handling and a lil faster!!!

To each his own but that there my friends is Brad smokin some good crack!
