Hey Neil,

Everybody was on their best behavior. Also, have you checked out the Endurance Race Video? I posted a thread with a link to it but I'll post again here:

I'll check it out when I get home from work. Speaking of which, shouldn't you be working right now?

Default Practice & Entries

I heard from a reliable source that the track will be closed to the invitational drivers until Thursday. They are even going as far as to video tape the area to "catch" violators. I'm not sure if applies to open drivers or not.

I also heard that next year they are considering accepting entries for a specific period of time and then at the cut-off date drawing entries. This will ensure that everyone has a fair chance of getting in. Also I heard that each manufacture will be allotted a certain amount of entries for guaranteed drivers.

Sounds like they might have had a problem in the past.

Hello guys....I wanted to let everyone know well in advance that the new dish wheel will not be ready in time for the Reedy Race.

The race will use the current CS27GLR's that are available with your LHS or online stores. If you already have CS27GLR's in your box, then your already set for practice

We wanted to make sure that the racers had ample time to practice with the actual tire/wheel combo being used at the Reedy Race since practice is very limited at the race itself.

Looking forward to seeing everyone next month!

I've been running the take-off spec tires with no issues, why are people so eager to make the change? I kind of like it because it's different from all the other "dish" wheels around.

I have not actually run the car yet with these spec tires, but one obvious thing I noticed though when I slapped on brand new tires on my car yesterday was... 3 out of 4 wheels wobbled! I was surprised to see inconsistency on these premounted tires, but for the price these are being sold at, I guess, it's good enough. I'm sure the dish wheels could have addressed this issue... maybe next year?!? I'll be testing these at Tamiya tomorrow and see if the uneven wheels play a big role in the cars performance... hopefully unnoticable... =)

Sorry guys, back to the topic about Reedy. Can someone please confirm that the track will be close before the Reedy race or not. This rumor has to stop if it is not true. This is a previledge Tamiya owners have and has nothing to do with the Reedy race at all. The better solution for you guys is to run Tamiya cars too! :-)
I don't think running on the track weeks before the race will have an advantage at all to Tamiya drivers. Check out who won last Reedy there. I don't see David Jun as first place? It's all 'bout a lot of factors like being Barry B.

The first 2 days of the event is practice day. But you should be able to run at the track every Saturday 10 to 4 if you have a Tamiya Car
