Default Who would be the best person to call a FAIR race at the REEDY RACE...

Nobody in the R/C industry....How about Chad Reed, Dale Jr, somebody with racing in mind......That knows about being taken out...

Has the Reedy race been called unfairly in the past?

I'll call any obscene hacking I see in any race I announce. I know Scotty calls a fair show too.

Last year Scotty had an assitant to help watch the action and they did an exellent job. The Tamiya track is huge and I dont think its possible to see all of whats going on, even standing by the impound tent I couldn't see everthing all at once.
Cant wait for this years race.

the JUN/HODGE video was on www.rcvideos.net but for some reason that site doesn't work. and I don't think it's there anymore. But, that vidoe was freakin amazing! Hodge had like half a lap lead then must have blown a wind or something, cuz JUN came out of freakin no where and passed him on the last lap. They did technically get together, the pass JUN made was a very edgy, could've been cleaner pass....but no harm no foul, Hodge didn't loose any time on the pass.

I hope someone's got that video somewhere, I'd love to see it again!

Racing is racing.. if you want an umpire to call fouls, play a sport that invloves them.. If you open the dorr the slightest bit, its open for anyone to pass.. Its done in nascar, and every other form of racing..


Having someone in nascar call an rc race is silly. Scotty is an amazing anouncer.. He is chosen for a reason.. every race track should be blessed with an anouncer as good as he is..

im not talking about who is calling the race...the offical to call for stop and go..go to the box...things like that, somebody that knows what they are looking at and unbiased person...somebody that you will respect and has the final say....the todd/jun incident wasnt what i was talking about...you need to watch all the invites rounds...there is alot of tamiya bias...you make the call...............................

If it makes any difference, Scotty is a sponsored Associated driver, NOT Tamiya. But Drescher won with a TC4?! HMMM! JK!
Scotty is one of the best !!
