Thank you to SRS crew for great night racing. The program went very fast thanks to Jackie. Great job keeping things moving along. Can't imagine how much faster it will be when everyone have PTs.

Thanks guys for keeping track open for practice after the race. That was super!

Not when they are throwing multiple cars across 2 lanes.

I'm heading to Scottsdale 8/7 - 8/11. Is 2wd buggy acceptable on this track? What tires? Which day for practice?

Thanks

Lots of turn out for 2wd. hole shots for rear.

I think practice only Tues 1-4pm. It would be very hot at that time.
Just come out early on the 8th before the race for practice. Race starts at 8pm on Sat.

Hello I just bought a used SC10 for myself and two new Slash's for my kids. Its been a few years since I have been to SRS and I have never run the short course trucks on a track. Does anyone have any recomendations for set up on my trucks. The SC10 has a hitech servo, novak brushless 5800, lipo's and just stock tires so I'd like to know shock oils, springs, tires, etc... The Slash's there just learning with so I probably wount buy tires for those yet but I dont mind doing springs and shock oils and stuff. Thanks

I knew that someone would respond with this lame excuse.

So what you are saying then is:

-If you get taken out by another driver, "its your fault".
-If the marshal puts you back on the wrong part of the track, "Its your fault".
-If the marshal puts you down facing the wrong direction on the track, "Its your fault".
-If the marshal puts you down on the wrong part of the track AND facing backwards, "its your fault".
-If the marshal doesn't want to touch your "Scary, noisy, smelly, dirty nitro car", then "its your fault" for choosing to drive nitro.

And by your theory of it being "the marshal's choice to run, jog, or walk to your car", you may as well have the racers marshaling their own cars.

Grow up. All I was doing is suggesting a way to make the racing experience better for everyone, by teaching people how to marshal properly. The whole problem with people is they want to come out and race (having their cake), but they don't want to do the little bit of work required (eating it to) when it comes to marshaling for 5 minutes.

Things will probably never change, but it doesn't hurt to throw the idea out there.

Usually runs with the buggy when one shows up. No enough for separate class usually.
