Completed some really good track changes last night. We ran a tank on it and it feels very different and very fast. Should be a great day of racing.

The track change was sweet! Definitely the most fun layout yet. Thanks to everyone who worked on the layout Friday, you guys did an awesome job.

The Pro buggy class was crazy tonight, 14 Entries!

I have to apologize to Anthony Howarth. I ran across a lane (playing Frogger) to marshal him in Pro Buggy. I flipped him over (or so I thought) and immediately darted back across the track, only to look back and realize I dropped him on his lid. Sorry dude, I felt real bad about that.

Track layout was awesome. Real good flow and challenging. Thanks to all that made it happen. Lot of strange things happened in the main. Pretty crazy. I started off choking on the first lap. Crawled back to second. Defiantly fun.

Wow what a good time out at ARC ! Racing with good friends and new friends. Thats what club racing is all about ,good to see some new faces racing in pro and some real close racing also. Track was fun and has some good marshalling spots. It would have been nice to win but, had some problems. Always would rather have problems at a club race than at a major race. No problem on the flip over by the marshal, i should have never crashed in the first place. After i had some problems i was just trying to have some fun putting the MP9 on a freestyle run. Hopefully i can get back out real soon. I hope everyone had a good time running the longer mains and quals. I also have some servos for sale if you are looking for some send me a pm.

Racing was really fun. The pro class was super competitive and the extra time for the expert class worked perfect. I'm glad so many people liked the changes that Brandon A. came up with. I am always open to peoples ideas. Also thanks for all the extra help on Friday. It made doing the change a breeze. If you like what we are doing at ARC let your buddies know and hopefully we can get the numbers up for even more close racing action.

I don't having any pics, but the lay-out change is awesome. Most of the same jumps are there, but the corners and approaches are different. The double on the left side coming onto the straight is what I like the most.

Hey all,

We're putting together an electric 1/8th buggy class for this weekend. We'll definitely have enough to run the class separately. We'll run our truggies with the nitros as usual since the mains have always been 15 minutes.

Some people are stoked, others are a little concerned about the mixing of the skill levels, but either way, it's time we try. So we're going to try this weekend. I'll talk to Dan when we get there unless someone thinks I should talk to him sooner.

Hope to see you all out there for some good times.

p.s. Billy Ho - that means you can run both of your buggies, I better see you out there this weekend

Yeah, it should be great. A bunch of guys on a local forum (SOCAL-RC) also are trying to bring in enough guys for an SC class. So, if anyone has those, you should bring them!
