Everything's pretty much ready; we will be out Saturday to Race again! I'll be racing 1/8 E Scale, another with a Mod 2WD SCT/Stock 2WD SCT (Easy change) and a Mod 4x4 SCT. I know Batman, and Brandon I believe it is, have 4x4 SCT's? Hope to see ya, give my friend someone to race! See you all this weekend!

Yes those are all popular at FTRC. I just got Caliber M3 tires on my Slash 4x4 and they work great.

Awesome!! I have both the AKA I-Beams and the City Blocks. I'll try out both this weekend and see what works best. It's shaping up to be a great day on Saturday (88 degrees with 0% of precip). Looking forward to race day at FTRC.

I also hope the same amount of E-Scales show up; that was great! I know I'll be out with a few more guys, so this should be interesting.

I plan on being there with 1/8 e-scale Vorza and my Blitz.

What time do people usually show up?

We're in Somerset PA, and we have to leave at around 6:30 AM...and get there around 8:30, and get set up and what not. So, anywhere around 8:30-9, and you'll be able to get some practice, and I believe signups are until 10 or so? You'll have to talk to ALF on that one! Just trying to give you an estimate.

HEY NOW! Hahaha. I've redesigned the mount. 4 Screws/Washers holding it on instead of the silly 2! At least it was recognizable!

Default Power available onsite?

I have a quick question. Is there power available onsite? I don't have a generator and wanted to plan accordingly.
