Hey, that's great!
As long as you can keep the racers playing along with the theme. But my concern there is that people are generally lazy or figure that if they're paying to race it's not there job. I've seen it happen before, and it's my guess it won't be the last time.


But either way all I was commenting on was the idea of a multi-purpose carpet track that would not only keep it out of the direct competition of the dirt boys at OCRC as well as offering a wide variety formats that could attract all sorts of drivers and racers as well as being rather low maintenance in comparison.
"doing things intentionally to hurt your profit margin doesn't seem too wise"

With that kind of mentality I'm confident your new venture will be a HUGE sucess

I do what needs to be done in order to maintain a business as fickle as the R/C industry, business' that focus on the bottom line 1st end up in 2nd!

1. Clean facilities attract organized-minded people.

2. Organized people tend to make more money than disorganized people.

3. Clean facilities that attract people that make good money will make more money than if they attracted broke people.

I should have said:
Just as an observation: The peoples' jobs that OCRC has attracted:
1. Biomechanical Engineer (me) - RC18
2. Electrical Engineer - BJ4 and B44
3. Mechanical Engineer - XX4

Counting yourself as someone you've met is kind of unfair lol

But I'd think you'd know that already, or maybe that since you've noted to others your problem with barely breaking even that you'd soon catch on.
i honestly dont see how this would lead to unhappy employees seeing that when myslef and the other 2 that work here were hired we were told what we were to do. it was like RB one day was like "oh now you have to mop everynight." We all take pride in keeping this place clean.
