Thanks everyone for coming out last night and racing! I will have the points info posted up in the next day or so. With the weather getting hotter we will start our summer hours starting on May 29th. So racing will start at 6pm starting Saturday May 29th. We will make announcements during racing till them to give everyone a reminder and will post new hours on the web site and in the store. Once again thanks for coming out and supporting our race programs.

Keoni


PS- I have been getting asked about the SRS Summer Point Series race. Im working on Dates today and will have a flyer out next week.

I'm getting kind of used to this backwards track deal - ran my fastest lap ever last night.
Had a great night last night though only 2 out of 4 of our cars were able to finish the night without problems. Strike has a blown trans and it broke in half, and the other sc10 is having some strange glitching issues. Anyone have much experience with the Castle ESC's? Seems like it's losing a phase on the motor.

Thanks again to the SRS staff for another great race night!

Where are the Blitz ESE guys from last night, any damage? Maybe a broken chassis in front of the steering servo, it seems to be happening quite often. I know they have good CS but damn, it gets a little irritating!

I think I see a 10 in my future.... and maybe a $10 radio

OUCH! I didn't have any damage Sat. night at all, but I had to replace the rear ball stud plate with the aluminum one last week due to breakage.

Maybe take a video everythine you race, HPI wants you to PROVE you weren't being "to hard" on the chassis and send in pics and THEY determine if you were to hard on it or not!

Hmm, I had a cracked chassis on my SC10 after Saturday - strange spot though, right on the side in front of the side bumper. Maybe I got t-boned? Trying super glue and shoe goo first as it doesn't look like a high stress area.
