I think RacerB is right....it's Doug's track, and everyone is kind of waiting for Doug to tell them what he wants, and where. So, if someone (Doug ?) was to say what he'd like to see, then Giuseppe and his helpers would probably be able to get something accomplished.

In terms of what I'd like to see....a "table top" for sure, perhaps on the short straight in front of the drivers' stand ? But please don't put a jump down at the "fast" end of the straight ! We'd see cars leaping right off the enmd of the track !!

I understand Chris Macievich won't be racing this weekend, so if anyone has a friend that'd like to try a day's racing, I have a Traxxas Rustler (the blue and green one) available as a loaner. I can supply a couple of batteries with it, too, but someone else will have to help with charging them. (I might even be able to loan a charger - I just won't be able to do the charging).

Let me know...

Great Enthusiasm !!!!! Don't be afraid to do something on the track! It needs work and Doug has told Jason to go ahead and do things as he sees fit. A table for sure......Doug and I had mentioned this before. Please keep the straight away straight. The jumps out there already need more dirt added and this is something simple that can be done.

Come on people, this is your track! This is your hobby! Let's make it as GREAT as it can be. I like Giuseppe's enthusiasm, now let's get some more people in the club involved and get some work done out there. I am really wanting to have a great track so that we can get people out to race......especially from out of town for our "Fall Classic" Race. It's not going to be just one or two people doing all the work anymore.

Thanks,

Default What I was thinking

he guys

Just wanted to through a couple of ideas out there for you all to consider

A banked corner is a must, just ask Ken how useful they can be. I was thinking to put a mild banking on the end of the straight, the outer support is already there. possibly the far corner (left of the driver's stand near the other gate). Nothing to high or steep, just something to get the cars a little slanted as they come out of a corner.

Table top... the short straight seems to be the most logical but fairly close to the end, or in the S-bend after the Doubles making the track a little more technical. ??

But my main priority is to fix whats already there and to get the race surface nice and flat, and ROLLED !

See ya Saturday, I'll be a little more specific as to time closer to the end of the week. I plan to be there at about mid day (12-1pm)

Brent do you want some light metal shelves for one of the shacks.

shelves are 12"X36" and the unit is about 6' tall with 5 or 6 shelves in the unit. I'm cleaning up my garage and they're really not being used and could use a home.

re the Green and blue Rustler....we may be able to get a second one sorted out in time for Sunday, so let me know if anyone is interested in "having a go". I'll have to hunt for more batteries, though.

Merv has no truck at the moment, its boxed up waiting for another buyer. He renewed his bid and gave the guy the finger, there were credit card problems.

so maybe he'll be interested in trying it, maybe he'll buy it from you LOL

Talk to you tomorrow


Tell Ken congrats for me for passing his test.

Hey Greg....thanks for the offer on the shelves but I think that most of the stuff we have left in our lock-up is the big stuff (rakes, shovels, pipe etc.). Maybe someone else in the club might be interested though.

Thanks again,

Gravel is being delivered tomorrow and I will be out there .....probably shortly after 11:00 am to show them where we want it dumped.....I was thinking right between the two sets of doubles....slow things down a little.

See you all Sunday.....lets see a BIG turnout O.K.?

Giuseppe....Yes, I'd be willing to loan a Rustler to Merv, as long as he understands that it's a RUSTLER and not a Matt Francis XXX-T. I think you know where I'm coming from.....Talk to him and let me know if he's going to run.

Default Fall Classic

Just wondering when the Fall Classic is this year and will you be running off-road or on-road? Racing in Victoria is still happening every Sunday, averageing 13 electric and 7 nitro touring cars. So if anybody is coming to the Island, be sure to bring your R/C gear.

Brent

Please email me if you're trying to get a hold of me. I will difinately check my email and I can't miss one from you.

dajracer

The Fall Classic will be held Sept. 19-21. We are mainly looking at offroad, but if enough support, as in entries, comes in for onraod then we'll run it. But we won't turn anyone away, enough of us have enough cars that we could give you someone to race against. But try to praud those guys from the coast, last time we really pushed for the onroad side and only 3 or 4 showed up when they were the ones hoping and praying to drive on our pavement track.

Later
