Have a great time...see you next round.

Matt, what motor are you running?
Tom

Planning on my mamba 5700 in Pro-4 (46T Spur 10T Pinion-I also have a 13T).

Hoping to keep the motor cool.

You might make the qualifiers, but the 15 minute main??? My 7700MM wasn't cutting it in Pro4 last time so I switched to my Slash stock 4WD, and was impressed how it ran, plenty of power around the track but did not handle as well as the 10SC. Looking forward to running the 10SC with the new Novak Balistic 550 4.5 motor. Good luck, let me know how she runs on Saturday.

Thanks for the heads up.. This is why I got the 10T pinion gear.

As for the motor, I am going to retard the timing a bit if I find it doesn't hold up for 15Min. I'll let you know on saturday, its all for fun anyway.

We had a real good turnout for round 2 of our Sping Shortcourse Series. 47 entries. We only had a couple glitches in the races and we were done before midnight. Ken and I have been learning from these glitches, and believe we now have the program pretty much figured out. We should be able to have the races done by 12 every night now.
We now have a new website for the track, http://www.PaddocksShortCourse.com Thanks to Chris Leitner. It looks great!
I will have the points updated within the next couple of days and they will be posted on the web site.
I will have the track open Wednesday from 3 til 7 for practice.
Track will be open Friday night 5 til 12 and Saturday 3 til 12 it will be open track this weekend.
We are planning on doing a new track May 15 and 16 If you would like to submit a design I have outlines of the track printed so ask for one at the track.
Dan Coleman and Tim Hethcox each were the winners of a set of proline tires provided by Quicks this week. Be sure to save your tickets because we are going to give away a bunch of stuff at the end of the series.
Thanks everyone, and I will see you all this weekend. Mike

We are looking into a way for users to contribute pictures to the site but, for now if you have any pictures or videos that you want to include see me at the track!

Thanks!

I will be filming some racing action next weekend during the series race. I did the video for Team Terribles so i'd be more than happy to put something together. I'll be out this Friday if you want to talk.

Looking forward to this Friday....

?, how do the points work? I see that you get 1 point for finishing 1st, 2 for 2nd and so on until 14th place, then everyone gets 15 points beyond 15th place. By this method, the racer with the lowest points at the end of the season is your champion. How many points do you get when you miss a race?

Thanks,
Tom

you are right about the points. A missed race or ns will count as 25 points if not used as throw out
