CRC Black Carpet

• Overgeared has made a large investment in CRC Black Carpet. RUBBING WILL NOT BE IGNORED…. If it rubs.. fix it.. or it will be removed from the track…

Traction Compound.

We will be switching to TDK for the winter season races after Big Chill.
TDK compound will be available through Gripworks.
TDK had shown good results with many clubs that had tested them.
Not just the goodness of TDK, we also need to prolong our carpet as long as we can.

OGR will have some for everyone to use until you can secure yours.
Here's TDK link for those that haven't heard of them.

Race Day Schedule
Doors will be open for track setup this season to start at 6am with practice to follow. The quicker the setup, the more practice time there will be. We will plan for 3 rounds of qualifying based on entries and Single Mains. Our Scheduled end time is 6PM. We must be cleaned up and out by this time.

Help us with Setup
  • Doors will open at 6am with Setup commencing immediately - Arrive by 6:30AM and help setup, for fee reimbursement
  • Practice will begin when the track is 100% complete. Many Hands Makes Light Work
  • Registration will open at 8:30 and close at 9:30… a 5 minute warning will be given.
If not registered by 9:30 you will miss the first round. If you are going to be late TEXT someone to add you into your required class and a spot will be kept in the lineup for you. Pay an OGR Board Member when you arrive….

Drivers meeting will be called at 9:45… please ask any questions and address any issues during this time

Pricing
Same as last year.

First class $35
Second class $10
Third class $5
Forth class $5

Setup and Teardown
-$5 back for setup or $5 back for teardown

Out of towners $25 flat rate. Please let us know when you register if you're from outside the Lower Mainland.

Races will begin 5 Min after the completion of the Drivers Meeting.

We are expecting a large turnout of new Drivers this season…
PLEASE remember this is a HOBBY and these are TOY CARS…
PLEASE help out the new guys as much as you can.
We want everyone to enjoy the hobby and by being the open and welcoming group we have been for the last few years, we can hopefully grow our hobby as much as we possibly can.

Loaner Traxxas FordGT Scale Spec
Our local RC distributors had given us a loaner car for new drivers to try our sport.
We would like if you could message us on facebook or post on here if you'd like to reserve the car for yourself or a friend that day.

Default Attention Racers

Please see the updated 1st post.
OGR will be switching tire traction compounds over to TDK.
For those that have SXT left, you will have 2 races and Big Chill to use them up.
After Big Chill, we will be using TDK.

Here's the link to TDK. Have a read if you don't know anything about them.
https://www.tdkrepair.com/msds

Gripworks will be stocking them for the winter season.
You can pre order them if there's no stock and not to worry on race days we shall have some for racers to use if you can't them in time.

Thanks.

Chris

Unfortunately there is no FWD M chassis class. Is that the only car you have? The Gravity RC USGT tires are for the FWD class as well as the 4WD USGT class. No slicks are allowed in these classes.

Condolences go out to the Irocc club. Some may or may not know that Jody Haddow has passed this weekend. He has been racing back with their club with his son Carter since his family returned from the UAE. Big guy with a big personality that was always there when needed... Rest well Professor Speed...
