I still haven't heard from Scott re payment. It's been more than 2 weeks.

What?
No truth to that. We are already 10+ deep on the waiting list in all three TC classes.

You have paid and are not on the list? Or what? I'd try Scotty at his email address (see sign up site) for info.

I registered but it didn't give me the balance or payment method. So I didn't get to make payment. Paypal wasn't available. Sent 2 emails to Scott which were Mar 8 and 12. Haven't heard back. Some said here that he was out of country and would reply when he comes back. But again that was a while ago.

Default Got Grip

This past weekend Tamiya Track race event was a success in the grip department (my car hurt a bit because I strayed from my usual setup in anticipation of lower grip) after two weeks of intermittent rain leading up to and ending about 1 day (if I'm not mistaken) before first practice.. No spray on the track and granted it wasn't perfect, some good laptimes were thrown down considering. Took a while to Rubber in, but it wasn't a huge problem.

Yeah it was ok but the sweeper had a single line though. If you went 2 cars wide through there then the guy on the outside was sliding off with the marbles. I think track spray double widens the lines.

Just observing from the outside, I think 3 years ago it was when everyone thought the racing was good the track was sprayed and the tires were soft. The last couple years with no spray and a non soft batch of tires not as much.

I'm personally just hoping it's a little better than the last time I was there at the Roar nats

Just spray it and we don't have to worry about it!

Totally agree with Mike whom I had a fantastic battle in one of the sedan mains with this last weekend at the Tamiya track. There was "the line" and if you strayed out of it, car was very loose. And from 2017 to this year, the track has been run on a lot so the track is more polished meaning less traction. Personally I do hope they spray and spray the entire width of the track for better traction and allow for more side by side racing opportunities.

If they spray, definitely the whole width. When I spray at Cal (same asphalt as Tamiya I hear), I spray the full width. Not just to widen the lanes, but keep the offline driving from tracking the dirt back onto the sprayed line.

Been going to Reedy at Tamiya since 2002, loved when they sprayed it with cut syrup or whatever the mix was. Standing at the gates waiting to get in the morning smelled like Ihop, now i'm hungry for some pancakes.

I was thinking about going to the Reedy Race this year, then I heard a rumor that there will be over 30 "Zonies" there. It will be just way too rowdy for me!
