Talking indoors at a different locale

Calvin Ng

no indoors in that building but we do go inside when the snow is out

The gym is located on the North Shore of town, but i wouldn't about it unlsess you're planning to come to an indoor race. Plus we use a different gum for our indoor 2-day race in February.

We will probably have a 2-day outdoor race at the end of the offroad season, you should try to come down.

Default this site sucks the _____ !

Note to site admin:


I just wrote a long reply and when I went to post it I was asked to log in again.

Does it kick me off after a certain amount of Time??
Is there anything that I can do??

Is there something wrong with the site?

This is the second time and I find it very annoying that it happens. I obviously am spending the time to write a long response i think that I should be given a chance to post it.!

Default what I was trying to say was...

I think that you should get a chance to travelto the out of town races when you and the drivers around you think that you are ready. There are some really fast drivers out there, some of the fastest I've seen come from Edmonton, Calgary, the Coast and from the Interior. Big races are have high standards and "try" to keep to a strict schedule of racing to get as much in as possible before everyone has to go home. They are well worth the time and expense to go to even if you don't win anything. You will always leave with something to take home to improve your racing and to better your result next time. Making sure things are ready and won't cause problems during a race, new driving skills, advice, or even just a prize or trophy make any trip worthwhile.

I have left events with nothing but a broken car and frown, but I learned something and I always do better the next time, and so will you. Talk to some of the local guys to see what they're up to and see if you can hitcha ride and split a room. I started racing when I was 10 and was travelling by 13 thanks to the local hobby store owner (thanks Ren I definately wouldn't be where I am today if it wasn't for you).

As for your friends racing, do whatever you can to get them out. The moreof you that start at the same level, faster you learn and the sooner you all start to win races. I came in at just the right time to catch up with Ren's son Ken. We spent the next few years battling back and forth for "who beat who" (Ken was usually the victor...lol). This doubled both ourer learning curves and we soon became a notable force in the stock class at events in BC and Alberta. We have continued to advance and are now among the top few here in Kamloops. So get you friends out ASAP so you and them can start on your journey to the front of the pack. Plus racing "wheel to wheel" is way more fun then from "corner to corner".

I highly suggest that you try to hitcha ride to the races south of you in Red Deer and Calgary to help build some experience and to meet other drivers. And definately enter in the Edmonton round of the Offroad Champs. It will give you a good view of where you stand amongst the rest(and to see if you really want to travel to the other two). And don't be discouraged by the other drivers, many of them have been racing for a long time and have the experience to finish where they finish ( and don't worry about the "freak of nature" first year ones, they usually beat everyone eventually).

I hope to see you at the Calgary round even if you just some out to watch. Just ask someone and I'm sure they'll point you in the right direction. And if not, look for a phsyco Pepsi drinker, and I'll be nearby...lol

Default a note to everyone

If you are typing a long post, select all of it and copy it via Ctrl C and paste it to new post if the original doesn't work. It will save you typing it out again

so again

select the whole reply with your mouse (or using the keyboard)

Crtl c (to copy it)

Then once you are back into the forum, paste it a new reply.Making the second post only takes about 10secs. And it will post it as with the shorter.

hope to save you all a little hair pulling.

Exclamation I did login

Hey Brent

I did log in, its the first thing I do when I come to the site. It seems to kick me off if I write a long post, it really is annoying.

I think that it must boot you out if you are idle for more than a few minutes even though you're typing a post.

Giuseppe....if Calvin asks for a "psycho pepsi drinker" in Calgary, he'll probably get introduced to Paul !!!

And what "gum" do we use for racing indoors ? (My vote is for "spearmint")

Default just a few words

Ren... I meant Paul. and that I would be pitting nearby, not that I was the "phsyco Pepsi drinker" I 'm not allowed the stuff anymore (April)


Calin Ng

Sound like you won't be far off the eaders at the rate you're going. Keep it up and get into offroad, its really fun and it give you a few different ideas that can be useful on the pavement. ( and vice versa) Alberta drivers seem to really split apart from the different surfaces, some only race onroad and some only race offroad. This allow them to "specialize" in their choosen season. The only problem with this is there isn't much dirt available come winter.

Hey Guys,, Just letting everyone know that One Stop Hobbies will be putting on a two day Carpet race June 21,22. It will be in Chilliwack at a car show. The car show is one of the biggest around here. There will be bleachers put up for spectators. I know it's summer and out door season but this way the weather won't get in the way. The entry form should be out soon. I'n not to sure on all the details yet, but just wanted to give everyone a heads up since it is coming up soon.

Dave
