Hey guys,

Looks like the races were a success. Any word on when the next one will be held?

The current plan is to start having races the first Sunday of every month.

Just once a month? We could break it up into 1/8th scale the first Sunday of the month and 1/10th scale the 3rd Sunday of the month. This would allow everyone the opportunity to race all the classes they want. Just my 2cents

I like your enthusiasm. Sounds a lot like me. I would totally be down for a 2 a month like that. Primary issues would be stepping on other races toe which I wouldn't really GAF. Next would be race operators. From the core group, we would need to switch out timer operaters so everyone would get a
chance to race. I'm sure there is more involved but I would race 4 weekends a month if I could afford it.

1/10 scale is for small boys and women..........real men drive on the 1/8 track

The long range plan is to run both on the same day.....just a matter of postioning the timing equipment correctly.

Not going to make it out this w/e. Bonding with the wife today and chasing golf balls on Sunday. Putting the final touches on the Caster K8T truggy this week and will be braking it in next w/e..............can't wait till my work area smells like NITRO again.

Also starting the Fusion EX1.5R Pro build with the new Castle-Neu 1800kv motor, this is a nice car, has some much needed upgrades from the EX-1 and should perform well on race day.

I am cool with racing 1/10 on the big track. We'll have to clean up some of the stuff that the 1/8 scales just roll over. But, it almost defeats the purpose of the 1/10 track. It does work better for the buggies, seeing that that is what it was designed for.

All,

sorry for the silence, been a little BUSY on this end,

here is some contact info for the camp and for fork lift support.

Camp services can be reached at 622-7623, SSgt Robinson or Sgt Hall can help out and help coordinate fork lift support, just remember it needs to stay in one of the stalls in he mess hall parking lot to avoid any A$$ pain from base/facilities, etc.

I am looking forward to seeing every one again next weekend to be able to run with you all one last ime...

let me know if you need anything from this end, I fly in the morning, so i may be able to grab it and bring it with me,

Rob

Nobody goes to the track today and we all ended up in the same places. Never seen Jon or Ken outside of RC business until today. I detected a little discontent about not being out messing with the RC Cars

Ken, you want me to bring put that 5T body next weekend?
