Throw them all away and start new!

Impacts, gridirons, hybrids, megabites are 4 good sets to have.

Cash races this weekend so a lot of people are attending those. I know a lot of people don't sign up, and none of the locals even use RCTech. You won't be by yourself as most of the 2WD SCT class is compromised of locals. I wouldn't expect a huge turnout this weekend but more than you see on the signups of course.

Just a lesson learned from our experiences. We have better turnout numbers when not using these sign up lists online.

I know there are people traveling and we normally pull more then what sign up. Track is undergoing refacing for the last two days.

We should be good for tomorrow!

My guess is that people come on...not regulars but lurkers...see a list that doesn't have a ton of people on it and then don't attend because they think they turnout will be low.

Just a guess.

+1

Either that or they see names of faster guys and then do not show. We even tried to do the pre-entry and half of those entries do not end up showing at times also. Too bad we can't always put an age or creditability rating with usernames like the trader rating, then you could have a different level of faith in the system. FYI, heavy rain in Shippensburg this afternoon may change peoples plans for tomorrow.

honestly we used to do these because we were pressed for time. We now have light thanks to ERIC smok Herwig!

Also the track is fully resurfaced, the triple is now finished, and the run up to the table top is 8 ft longer then before.

We smooth out the lower section and raise the hard to see area 2 ft added some rollers and banked it slightly with a new dog leg turn now!


all good for tomorrow!!! plain and simple! thank god it stopped raining!
