unfortunatley, the driver stand is not wheelchair friendly at RCHR. But you can probably drive from the other side of the track.

I think we are geeting started around 7pm. We were sitting around Sunday morning, someone suggested racing during the week, we talked about Friday's, Rich made it happen. Give him a call at the shop. I am not sure about the other classes on Friday but we are running at least Short Course Trucks, I guess the others if racers show up.

See you Friday?

are there even lights out there?...i've been racing there for 9 yrs and can't remeber seeing any lights other than the single lights over the back doors of the building...and rich can only control one of those. as far as that sc10 goes...eric and i are going to revisit whether or not they should be run in the spec slash class...getting some complaints about them already from other drivers and they've only been run 1 or 2 times together. as far as roar rules go...we're not a roar sanctioned track nor do we enforce their rules. i believe the gearing issue was resolved first time out...but they just plain outhandle the slash too much to be considered an equal match in a spec class. hope that doesn't upset anyone....just trying to keep the majority happy.

maybe i'm saying too much on this subject, but this sc10/slash issue really bugs me to be honest. the slash spec class was started to race out of the box slash's with very little modification. if the sc10 had the exact same handling charachteristics and same limit on shock position, camber link position and length, same length control arms, weighed the same, and had the same center of gravity as the slash, then it would be an equal match...but it doesn't ....so it isn't. tamiya doesn't allow 415's to be run with tt01's in their spec series...and the differences are about equal as what i'm discussing with our slash class. it seems to me that the people running to buy the sc10, while using brand loyalty as an excuse, are seeking an unfair advantage. i feel that if you wanted to race a T4, you should have bought one and raced it in stadium truck class, but of course, all the other trucks have similar designs and suspension geometry, and the same if not more adjustability, so no advantage in that, probably would buy a losi to race in that class....unless Xray releases one.. this is just my opinion on the subject, but, from what i've seen of the sc10 running with the slashes, it only strengthened my opinion that the 2 are not equals.
