chosen club members policing fellow selected members.

For this gold membership cost is $100 per month.

normal fee would be $10 per day during normal store hour, what ever they turn out to be.

so if your a dedicated rc'er that membership really is GOLD

these members would also have say in track layout. maybe you'll be able to pick out a special pit spot all your own for race day.

just a couple of thoughts to throw out there

I like the idea! It sounds steep at first but if someone shows up 3 to 4 times a week it will save them money every month. Plus the 24/7 thing would be sweet. I could swing in at 5AM on my way to work for an hour.

I'm glad that big gus is open to ideas good ideas aldo I hope big gus is watching
We are open to all ideas. Why build a track and not give the people coming what they want? It's a recipe for disaster. If we put a group of race minded people together that will bring ideas to the table it will be a win/win for everyone. With it being basically the only track in the area why not make it the best?

I'm good like that.

The way work is going I'm ready to get rid of everything in my shop and put the track here. Only issue is I'm not zoned for retail.

Exactly. It would end up paying for itself pretty quickly for some of us. I work overnight shift, so my schedule is always opposite of the rest of the world
For 24/7 access to work, there would have to be some sort of keyed entry. Otherwise anyone could just walk up. Just something to think about.
I also second the Saturday race day idea.

There would be some kind of keyed entry, it wouldn't be left wide open. Might be crazy but not stupid.

We are really gonna make it happen. Like I said earlier once we get it set up and going we are going to try to figure out a good exhaust system to run nitro.

Let me rephrase myself, I will be looking into an exhaust system.

Just remember "if you build it, they will come!"

Default Be sure you know

Just like anything guys look before you leap! Bullshit walks $ talks. Keep it very low budget and slowly build things nicer if $ allows.

I've got a million guys who come out to race very in frequently. 1/8th scalers don't race enough by us, they just talk about it alot. Just be sure your clear where the $ will come from.

Build it they will come, don't be stupid. Understand your demographic they are not high rollers so their incomes are very sporadic. $400 on equipment is nothing, but race fees are gone for the month so you'll not see that racer for a month.

Everybody is a player until you need to grab a shovel. ;-)
