Kevin,

GREAT Track. Just want to say thank you for having us NRC members at your track today. I have to say that your track has the best surface I have ever seen on the east coast.

Holy traction tonight! More rain and cooler temps and slicks will work. I've never been on a surface with that much bite tonight. Surface will be phenominal sat. Might be a little slick 1st thing in the morning when it's chilly out, but the rest of the day will be perfect. Zero dust, no filter changes.

It was nice to meet all new guys last night, hope you all had a good time. The lighting change on the front stretch made a big difference, I'm going to try to make the same type of lighting change going into the first turn before the weekend just in case we need to use the lights.

Looking forward to Friday night's practice.

Thanks,

Kevin

Well the track last night was terrific traction was really up. Drainage worked really well. I am sure the surface will get some more pampering before Friday evening practice and Saturdays big race.

Kevin,

Awesome track! Had a great time last night running with everybody. Im a little rusty after not touching my RC's for 6 months cuz of racing mountain bikes, but slowly getting back into it. Im gonna try and make it this sat. Thank you to you and everybody else that marshalled last night.

Got my engine sorted out. Low speed was too rich and idle too high, giving me a "false idle" and making it "run on". Amateur mistake lol.

Thanks again for the awesome treatment!

Cityblocks and Calibers are very common.

PS. Anyone ever send in Spektrum Transmitter for repair at Horizonhobby? Sent mine in, still nothing back. Looks like I'll be using the backup DX2 again.

Plenty of electricity. Soft citi blocks work on my truggy/buggy. Some use calibers, revolvers and subcultures did well on my buggy.

If you are going to be late and can't make the 10:30 cut off for sign up, no problem, just call ahead and give your name and class over phone and we'll get you signed up. 717-463-9173.

We will try to run 3 rounds of heats with a short water break in between each round.

The weather forcast keeps getting better and better for this weekend, but I still want to try and push to get done before dark (6-6:30) because the temps will drop fast after the sun goes down. So if you want 3 rounds of heats you guys are going to have to help me by being on time for marshalling etc.
