Perhaps an organized practice is in order, i.e. 1/8 for 10 minutes, 1/10 for 10 minutes, when there is enough to do so.

The "Small Track" was meant to be for 1/10 scale cars and novice 1/8 scale cars. It was actually a pretty cool site to see when I showed up last night at 10:00 PM to run in the new car and see a bunch of new faces running their differing cars of all facetts. The driver's stand was full all night and from the time I arrived until FF started shutting down at 11:30. This is a good thing for our hobby and will only grow it. Perhaps, all of the experience guys can embrace the new guys and show them the ropes, etiquette, and most of all to have fun.

It is common courtesy/sense to yield to volunteer marshalls, especially little kids. Again, this is PRACTICE and NOT A RACE. It only takes one good hit to ruin someones night and everyone else's as well. FF is building a nice family atmosphere, let's keep it that way.

If anyone of you have an issue with someone in particular, bring it up to one of the FF guys, Jeff or Robert. I am sure they will take care of it.

There is no sense of all this drama. Lets just have a good time...if there is an issue, bring it up with the staff...or even the actual driver in a professional manner, not attempt to call them out on the boards. All that will do is lead to unneccesary drama (case in point). Any time there has been an issue at ANY track it can be handled with a simple chat. At least thats the way it used to be. The guys at FF have created an amazing venue for all ages, and skill levels to enjoy! We all greatly enjoy this money pit we call a hobby!

GT2 - wanna race for pinks? J/K...when i missed the quad if I was the one that almost landed on your lap, I apologize. I'm pretty sure that I can speak for everyone here when I say that no one has the intentions to misjudge a jump and put anyone in danger.

Anyways,
Lets get back on track with the FF thread... Good luck to anyone racing tonight!

This may be a stupid question, but for a newbie i have to ask. Do tracks like this have power so you can charge your batteries? Or do you just have to bring a bunch of fully charged ones? Thanks in advance for the help and see all of you soon.

I would charge your batteries before so you can practice before they etc the Gen sets up and running. But yes they do have power. I would bring at least a 50 door cord if u have it. Oh and they have picnic style tables out there as well or u can bring your own.

I don't know much about electric, but, could you use a power converter instead?
