Will there be off-road practice available this Saturday? The weather forecast looks pretty descent so far. Hope it holds out!!

Hey Shawn, Ty & I will be most likely be out Saturday to turn some laps if that's ok? See on your schedule link: oval racing, figured you'd be around there? Heading to G's Sunday (sounds like a BIG E Scale crowd coming

How about PM me a price for those (3) 48T plastic spurs ??

SMOKE OUT

the track is in a 80X140 area.

the front straight is 100 ft long.

the new pipe should be in this week. the small pieces are for reference only.

And I am hoping for some rain.

Working on a rain water collection system to be environmentally friendly.

Any finished pics?

Saturday has now changed a bit for me, but I'll see if wife can bring Ty out earlier. Offered OT work on Sat., can't pass it up, but I'm planning on coming out after 3 if still ok? Need to do some tuning. Don't need to be smokin' up a brushless if it's possible I'll find a way.

Everyone,

Since the rain did not let up at all this week, i would say that we will not allow "practice".

Here are the reasons.

We haven't been able to pick up and lay the new pipe in place
We haven't been able to clean up the mess
We haven't been able to fine tune the jumps and small general things especially after the rain.

Now that being said if you do come out please don't expect anything special. right now it is a mess that i had plans on having nicely cleaned up this week. But hey i did ask for rain.....

The track is doing well concerning the rain especially how much we received 9 (4" total since Monday) so that is not the problem.

I still have to finish the boards and piping, and some grading and jumps.

As for next weekend I beleive we are all be at the Big ONE at LCRC so nothing will happen next week.

If you would like to come out saturday, please PM me

we had a rain, wait i mean a flood storm. LOL. For about 3 minutes today. the track is wet. If you are heading out to help and work on the track.... it may be still wet.

Today I had it ripped up and was trying to change it and then bam we got rain.
So i was able to finish change the jumps over to the new configuration.

i will post up a pic in a few minutes.
