Yea.........Maybe in another area I dont know about.Like the old sayin goes "Dont believe everything you hear".I have just talked to Dick Dafalco at Ceaser Battesti at 11:11 am.I called him just as I was writing this post just to make sure and he said there is ABSOLUTLY NO WAY that the track is open and ANYONE caught there (including me) will be warned for trespassing until furthur notice.I think there might be a bit of Delusion going on here from who ever your friend talked to!!!!!!

Default ATTENTION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well,I have found were Altoona Raceways timing system went to,whats left of it.I was searching on the BUY-SELL-TRADE part of the forum and sure enough there was the AMB DECODER BOX and the LOOP for sale and it was sold as of 3/9/11 under ROB WIKES name.There was some post about how hes tryin to upgrade the system..If thats the truth why are we (as members ) kept in the dark about this.Better yet,why was I kept in the dark.I did nothing but give and help and offer friendship.I will tell you why,this was the plan all along since GOD knows how long!!!!!! We as members of the Altoona Raceway were scammed by what I call a "SCHMUCK".There is a lot more TRUTH to come.!!!! Once again I apologize and I HAVE NO IDEA WHY HE DID THIS!!!!!!

That would be nice. Can't believe what happened.

You should come down to Lost Creek on Saturday. Test and Tune day. Lot of guys are supposed to be there.

We're planning on it!

Default Rebuild is DONE!!!!

I just put the finishing touches on the Himoto Vega8 brushless buggy. I rebuilt it for punishment (hopefully) I am going to try to set a land speed record with it since there is no track to go test it on. Took it outside and she runs very well. Yes they are road slicks on the buggy. Found slicks for a 1/8 scale buggy on eBay, user name suprasales. Better then wearing out $60-$80 tires.

Default New Track Idea????

I am a member at the Altoona Rifle and Pistol Club. The club is located in Sinking Valley very close to Fort Roberdeau. I mentioned to some of the board members of the loss of the Altoona Raceway. They are open for discussing a track proposal on the Altoona Rifle and Pistol Club grounds. The spot we have picked out has ample parking and possible camping grounds for people who want to camp. There is also a building and electricity on site already at the proposed site. There is plenty of sun and shade along with a view of the track location that EVERYONE can see easily. The board meeting will be this Sunday at 3:00pm. I would encourage anyone that is interested in supporting this cause to contact me. I will post pictures of the site tomorrow for all to check it out. I will keep everyone posted as to what the results are.

Thank You

Default AMBrc timing system
I own a track and am interested in upgrading my timing system.

I have an AMBrc Decoder and loop for sale. Works 100 %

Decoder and loop - priced to sale at $1,800 OBO

$2,000 + cheaper than a new system.

Plz call my cell at 814-932-0453 if interested
