Due to the building codes and regulations in the city limits, a master electrician must be the one to pull the permit. With that said, I was able to find an electrician that will "donate" his services, but on his time schedule (when he has available time). That will save the track 200$ to 400$. However, there will be power there Saturday to run battery chargers.

And, on another note, when I took over the track, I never got a copy of the rental agreement with the Cesare's. Never thought we would ever need to refer to it. Apparently, in hindsight, I should have. According to the rental agreement that Chuck and Doug wrote up, "We" only rent half the property that the track sits on. I know, it sounds completely ridiculous but so very true. Dick is working to smooth it over with the "ONE" board member that has a problem with us using all of the property. So, I must wait until that is taken care of, before building the Oval. Once we are cleared, Backhoe is coming for the track build.

I apologize for any problems this may have caused anyone. I take full responsibilty for this dilemma.

I look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow. Looks like E-Scale is shaping up for a decent class tomorrow. If any of you guys see/talk to Brad, Ed, Mike McGhee or CR, ask them to join us tomorrow.

Default racing this weekend

wish i could be there! leaving for cape cod.

Tom, dont those screaws suck?, i could take one out of one of my hitec servo's, and also let you use my charging gear, but non of this helps you since i wont be there lol
however,, i did find this info out while in need of one out in MO. racing at hobby world.
those cheap hpi roto start backplate kits, which come with mounting screaws, beleave it or not are the same size!, so, if you can pick one of those up somewhere, that will work too.

wish i could be more help

good luck tomorrow guys

Jim or Gary may have one. I will make sure they bring their screw bins with them. Someone will have their charge gear for your lipo too.

Since we are looking for parts. I need a throttle/brake servo horn for a JR servo. And also, motor mounts for a losi buggy, non roto-start motor type.
