Can I run a 12-doble brushed motor and put aluminum shock towers and arms on my slash?
See rules regarding slashes in prior post

Quote:
Are you going to have a wall-ride/banked turn at the end of the straight?
We are going to install something like that right in the MIDDLE of the straight. Picture a windmill with a tunnel just big enough for your car at the bottom of it. You will need to time it just right to avoid the blades!

Will there be a figure eight in the middle of the track?....I love to death-rev my engine over bigggggggg jumps!
Yep - But its going to be more like a figure 14 actually.

Motorama had a six-pack jump section, can we have a twelve-pack section at Altoona?
We plan to have a keg jump section. You're Shot Boddies is going to love it.

Sorry, my bad!

You may want to consider switching to a high fiber / low carlorie / hairball reducing feul for your truggy.

The first thing we've decided to do is change the name of the track to the B & T Raceway and increase race fees to $100 for the first class and $50 for the second.

We've also found it necessary to tweak the rules just a little.

Effecive immediately all Short Course racing (Stock, Mod, 4wd) has been outlawed. We'll finally get some peace around here without all that agonizing bickering about SC rules anymore.

No one will be permitted to run a nitro vehicle at B & T Raceway without a starter box. This one is obvious. Pull starts and roto start devices just look bad and send the wrong message to new racers.

We've also decided to cut the 1/8 Truggy class. I mean c'mon; 3 hp motors and tires the size of volley balls? Its just plain overkill. Just sac up and run 1/8 buggy instead.

1/8 electric and 1/8 and nitro buggy will be combined into separate classes. (We'll have more info later about we're actually going to do this)

We will require all racers follow ROAR rules except for people who we know to be honest. The racers who are known to be honest know who they are and only need to look at me or Brad until we look back AND nod once to know that they can do whatever they want without concern of a tech inspection. Got it?

Lastly, Everyone other than Brad and myself will be required to volunteer marshall at least 2 times a round. Brad and I have exempted ourselves because we'll be too busy enforcing the rules.

We thank you all for you co-operation and keep checking the forum for other important announcements.

You can run truggy tires on buggy wheels so long as you use silly putty for foams.


We've decided to require all E-scales run on 12v car batteries for safety reasons.

This is easy. I dont know why everybody complains so much about running RC tracks these days.
Well done Mr. Toth, well done!

Thats ok, i'll be sticking with the EB mods fuel and 3 cells in the 4x4 slash, at all the other tracks in PA, since iwont be able to run either at Altoona.
How about a refund for the 2010 track membership? or is that something Rob will need to handle when he gets back,,
Also, since i wont be able to run anything i own at Altoona, i guess i have some truggy accesorys i will no longer need, and will be listing on ebay soon....



Thanx anyway
