hi guys

Me and a friend from our local club in the UK are seriously thinking of making the long trip over the Atlantic to come and take part in the fun.

Is there anything we need to consider or think of regarding the transpotation of equipment.

were both looking at running in the stock class as thats what were used to here at home. Will you be running handout motors like last year or is it any stock motor goes?

Any help and advice would be appericated

Hello. Not sure I can help about the traveling. We do have an awesome hobby shop that is setup all week, that has everything you can need... so you can pack light. (traction compound, paint, motor spray, etc you can get here). We do have handouts for stock and 19 turn racing. Really hope you guys can make it over.

Mike

cool sounds good.

What sort of tyres do you guys normally run? foams or rubber? Ive not got much experience with foams but had a lot of succes with carpet dragons over here! I was thinking of coming over with maybe only 1 set then buying what runs well!

sonds like the shop is well stocked! Do they carry all the normal spares like wishbones and hubs for Corally and tamiya as that is what myself and my friend run!

looking forwards to racing with you guys

The rubber classes will be handout tires and the foam class is open. Foam tires will be either Jaco or Parma

Default Airport ?

How far is the Orlando airport from the hotel? Does the hotel run a shuttle there? If not any cab recommendations?

If I remember correctly last year it seems that the airport is about 20 mins from the hotel. We had someone pick us up on incoming, but we did use a Taxi for the trip from the Hotel to the Airport on Mon. It ran us about $40 I think.

Try calling the Hotel and see if they can set-up a shuttle or if they will recommend a taxi company.

Looks like shuttle vans are about 20 bucks to the hotel. Here is a good link:

Hotel does not offer it. They do have free shuttles to all the theme parks but that's it.

hey Brewer 96, I travelled from the UK to Florida last year to race at a state race event, alls I did was put all the RC stuff in a small suit case and use towells as protection. Just take the essential stuff as the US guys are really friendly and happy to help out. Explain what all the electronic stuff is when you get to check in (I got asked by the security manager) but if you take a flyer for the event and a couple of magazines to show the stuff in your case is the same as in the magazines, it will help no end! I had no probs at either end of the flight, you should go, I had a great time over there. Cheers, Chris.
