Mark, if racing is so boring, why do you come.
All I have said regarding a possible new format is this.....

....I have a suggestion for club racing that some may like, or not, just throwing it out there....

….Hoping to stir up some ideas cuz watching the racing Saturday night was a blast!!

....I found myself enjoying watching almost every race last night.

....Anyhoo, just an idea to bring to club racing.
I'm sorry you are so angry with this. You're a nice guy, and I'll try not to offend you so much in the future.

So you will have people bitching that they either got hacked by the not so good drivers, or didnt stand a chance at earning points because of the other drivers being way too good.

2) Racing brings out the best and the worst in people. When you start making "every race count", you start getting some pretty pissed off people out there when things dont go perfect. Its much easier to shrug things off when you are just out there to hang out, and if you win the main its a bonus.

Jut my $.02
this is the most accurate post on here, we'll this and Davey's post.

if you have more than 10, cant do it. if you run 3 mains, who starts where?
they're good idea's, they just might not be possible. 1 qualifier & 2 mains might be ok, but i see alot of people get pissed off over the results of 1 main and you want to run 2? some people would have to calm down! Tanner, cough, Wheelie, cough

Nah....I say don't calm down. Bring that crap to the track and race!! Made for some great racing the other night. I like Tanner and Wheelie cuz they are super competitive, and they love me back equally. I'm just pissed cuz I can't hang with them so I try and take it out on Jimbo in Pro2. Ha!! That kid is going to be kicking all our butts when he's 14.

I love watching Hethcox kicking arse in his rebel flag SC8. That guy brings it!! That's racing!! I hope I have some sorta game for you guys when my RC8B is finished, cuz you guys in E-8th are mooooving out!! Great Brad Fox and Kioni show-down Saturday. That was awesome!!

Who races with no expectation of winning?

Maybe we should do it like t-ball, everyone is a winner. We all get trophies and a healthy snack after the races.

That way nobody would have to spend all this money trying to build a better car or spend the time trying become more skilled racer.

Everyone is equal. R/C Obama style.

Folks, once I get a job the forum should resume to it's normal chit chat. I sware I'll leave once I'm back to regular employment.

I just sit around building RC cars thinking why Tanner and Wheelie could possibly hate each other, and wondering how I can get in on it. HaHa!!

Let's see, the reasons we haven't been there much:

I don't like it when other racers run into me in the Slash class.
My wife won't give my pants back.
It's too hot.
I get mad and throw things and cuss around women and kids.
Someone is always trying to change things.
Joaf keeps loosing my beer coolers. (#3 and counting)
The economy is slow.
Alex has an 1/8 scale.
I'm waiting at home for all the free s*** Obama says he is sending me.

Heck, I don't know. Been busy making a living.
Summer is my slow season so I have to actually work at it.
