Does LRH have races on Saturday morning? I was there on Sat morning and it was locked up tight with nobody there. If the website time is wrong then what is the correct race time?

You should come on down and try the LRH Challenge. Turn an 18 second lap time and I will refund your track fee for the day. So far the record is a 19.2. Close by not good enough.

L8's
How long will this be good for? I think I am ready for a fast lap challenge!

What kind of car ran the 19.2?

I am sorry about that. We do/did have a race program however the turnout has been pretty much zero. Our first race turnout was great however with the opening of WCRC racers have opted to go there. We will still hold races but only if the there are more than 4 to a class. Hopefully in the future racers will try and show their skills on a small track.

I will update my website today to prevent this from happening again. I think I spoke with you Sat morning. Is your name Tim?

A few cars have hit the 19's.

1. LOSI 1/8th - 19.4
2. RC8 - 19.2
3. RC8 - 19.8
4. B4 - I believe mid to high 19's

I would say the average lap time is a 24 for a novice level driver. Experienced drivers have averaged 20's.

A lot of people do not realize that a small track can be more challenging to get around than a larger track. I have had a few expert drivers tell me that a small track really helps you hone in on your skills. In my experience, driving my 1/8th scale at Revelation has become much easier because of the amount of time I have spent running laps here. I did not believe it at first but now I am a believer.

Come on down and give it a shot. Worst case you just get stuck paying your $10 track fee.

I wonder if my slash will do that with a 3cell hmmmm, Lorenzo we need to talk !!! btw I had a ball yesterday so I can't wait to break my slash again
I have a 3cell you can borrow. I think your current setup will hit the ceiling no problem. My B4 did it style.

Ok, I feel like gambling. If you turn a 19.5 or better with a 13.5 Truck I will refund your track fees. Sound fair?

19's are very possible with your set up. I believe Smalley was in the 19's with his 13.5 B4.

Either way it will be fun. Might have to head out there Wed night! Smalley is fast as well. I have a 13.5 buggy as well so I will be gunning with both of those!

Okay, no problem. No, Tim is a friend of mine. We were both there on Saturday. That's too bad about your turnout. All of a sudden there are a ton of racing options in socal, for off-road. Oddly enough, when you were not open, I ended up going to WCRC for practice. I'll check out your place another time.

Well, I will try with my set up and maybe I can do it, I have come close but I didn't gun it so will see

Hey as far as the races I would be game for that, I have to agree that driving on a smaller track makes you a better driver, got to do with the technical parts of the track and is more about control I guess so, if you bring the races back count me in

I encourage others to come and try the track, you will be hooked

So people, let's keep it going!!!
