Pretty much all the local 1/8th scale drivers will be there.
I am going to do what I can to make that race. I like the idea of racing equals, especially with this pig. To race an event like that, how much fuel will you go through and how many sets of tires? Any other info would be awesome, it sounds like you definitly need a pit guy or girl.

just get a set of Bow ties or somthing like that and one set will last for days out there. about 1/2 gallon of fuel and if you need help with the pits or any thing just ask, that is the cool thing about NITRO.

hoops, you will prob pit around 7-8 min mark, idk how efficient that ae engine is. pitting at 7 min you will pit 7 times, pitting at 7.5 you will put 6 times, and unless you can do 9 which i dount you will put 5 times. so lets say you can do 7 min pits, thats 125 cc every 7 min, that equals to roughly 1/4 of a gallon. so for the whole day,practice, qualifers, main, prob 1/2 a gallon aprox, matters on how much practice you run.

As far as tires, sunlakes are great on tires, you will run the whole day and prob not notice any wear.You will def need a pit person, people at SL are extremely helpful , you can find someone no problem, if im free i can but i have to pit my dad and i race as well so idk how the schedule will go. If you need any help lmk, youve helped me enough with SC. btw what is your name?

Oh wow! That's not too bad, I was thinking gallons of fuel (that shows my experience ) As for asking for help, I'll duck tape a pole to my back with a sign that says "help" lol!

That is the cool thing about RC, it seems like someone is always around to lend a hand.

Down & quiet....what's that?

The pit stops make me laugh, when I roadraced I ran out of gas a few times. So my wife keeps giving me s_hit about the nitro car, "don't forget the gas", lol!

down and quiet is nitro way of starting a race, your pit guy holds the car n the air, fuels up, and the race director does, marshals ready, drivers ready, down and quiet, your pit guy then put you on the ground, and you sit still till they hit the buzzer and then you go.
