I wonder if rain gutter piping would be any less expensive. Kinda resembles that plastic one piece at a time stuff?

I just thought it was neat on the way it clipped together. And the nices curves. PVC still works good.

I liked the attachement, corners and they are working on Speed Dots, Flappers, and something else I forgot!!

RRR - drainpipe does not have the bends, joints ...... however, it could point a car towards the rain barrel if you know what I mean!

I think we should do motocross starts for all the races. I could fabricate the starting equipment if needed.

Grenade-I truly believe the pipe thing is the way to go, especially making our own bends. You missed it I was TQ for a few minutes today And then "Atomic" Eric Burkett took it and never looked back

Rev-I've got some ideas and relatively simple. Like cinder blocks tied to a servo and transmitter driven Honestly If you've not seen the one at RatRaceway you need to check it out

i think you guys are all nuts. with a bigger track, we will be able to spread everyone out enough on the straight that shotgun starts will not be a problem. if the straight is 100 feet long, and there are 10 cars, that leaves like 9 feet between cars.

math complements of grenade.

I'm not really sure. I just copied and pasted it from another discussion.

mike - i think they were talking 4 cell, 19t sedan. no lipo, no bl. not really my cup of tea, but hey....there is an a$$ for every seat.

i really feel that we need to keep the classes at a minimum. and in my opinion, this will just further divide the feild.

The masters class is for old farts like Grenade.

The pipe stuff from CRC looks cool but it's mighty steep.

Later, Lee
