Jeremy, You will not want to park in the same place at last year. You dont want to even go as far as turning into the parking lot in the back because if you do, you would have passed the new track.

Look for a bunch of cars parked just off the street after the Furiture Store part of the building. We are basically using a side door to access the track right off Cayuga Ave. Parking is limited so you might have to park on the other side of the street.

If you cant find it, just take the TRS phone number with you - Chuck or Doug will guide you in.

See you there.

im still planning on making it there for racing...but as of right now its not looking like a race night for me.i still have alot more stuff to do and im not sure if i want to push the issue for the first week.

on the other hand if any one has any jrxs arms from the older car i could just put that car on the track for its ready....escept for it needing an arm.

but if i cant race i will at least show up and get my pit all picked out and start doing some of the things that needed to be done to get raedy for racing ....

re-doing my battery bars,painting up a body,and basically just whatever else comes aboard...talk to ya guys later.

matt

Hey guys its Lee,

Havenít been on here in a while, it sounds like you guys are moving indoors already??? What its still 90 degrees outsideÖ O wait Iím in FL now not to rub it in or anything. Things are going great down here my new job is awesome but I work and travel a lot. Jessís classes are going good. She hates UCF compared to PSU though. Iíve taken up a new racing hobby. One where your actually on the machine again but this time on 2 wheels. Iíve bought a new Triumph Daytona 675 and have been pursuing entry level street bike road racing there are 4 different tracks here in FL. But track days run any where from 100$-200$ per day so I donít know how in to this Iím actually going to get. But its getting my need for speed and competitive juices flowingÖ

Whatís the indoor schedule like the week of thanksgiving? For some reason my computer will not let me on www.altoonaraceway.com. Jess and I will be in town form 11/ 18 -11/24 if there is still a guest TT-01 car I would like to call dibbs for any racing I would be there for?? How bout it ed?

Some days I really miss central PA!! then I walk out side and wonder why!!

Lee, We were just talking about you the other day and wondering what you were up to. Racing Motorcycles? It sounds incredible. Good luck with that. I can see why you're not in a hurry to come back Pennsylvania.

As of now, there is a race scheduled for Friday 11/23. I'm no longer officially the 'Godfather' of spec TT01 but I still have one that you're welcome to use if you decide to race. Its a little different than last year. This year TT01 will be an Oval class.

Definately stop by the track if you're in town!

Matt, If it helps, we might be doing some casual racing tonight but mostly its a test and tune with the first official race occuring on 10/12.

Lee, There's just simply too much to put it all down here. All the results are in the website.

Feel free to call me & I'll get you caught up!

if your looking for a good servo thats going to be worth your time and money , I would steer towards airtronics servos . Hitecs are ok but not vary reliable .

ed,
i had alot of fun last night beeting it out with you.
i must say i got alot of wrenching to do in time to get the car more the way i want it to feel.
but overall i like the new losi type-r.

i know its still prolly to new to say but i can see this race season being tight.

as far as tt01 goes...jeff said that he would want to run his on road course.
i would run mine on road course...

im sure there will be others that would want to as well.

lmk your input guys.
