Right on..... would be great to see you again. You don't have to go far to say hi to my dad, he is floating around on this message board also. I will mention it to him though.

Always good to talk about RaceTech Motorsports........

Well, I've just got done catching up with the workload left for me while I was here playing. So here is my time to speak.
Thanks to all who came to play, hope you had fun.
Thanks to all of the manufacturers that gave door prizes, and special thanx to Spektrum, for the DX3R I won, it is great.
Thanks to Bob Stormer for the pit towels and the tee-shirt. and yes I am one sexy billboard.
Thanks to the entire Indoor Champs Staff, (we know who we are) I felt things ran smoother this year, than in years past. And I know we will improve for the future.

And to all those that joined us, if any suggestions, please post them here.

I think you're car must have been leaking something and oiled up the corner. I think I saw a fender, an axle and most of a quart of battery fluid in that corner...I'm not entirely unconvinced that Frank Calandra was sitting there and just "wacked" my car with a shovel...

Also, I ran out of gas. I, I had a flat tire. I didn't have enough money for cab fare. My tux didn't come back from the cleaners. An old friend came in from out of town. Someone stole my car. There was an earthquake. A terrible flood. Locusts. IT WASN'T MY FAULT, I SWEAR TO GOD.

And props to Frank for getting a shovel through the airport.

Our pleasure.


That's hard to believe though, as I stole 4 myself. Nah, just kiddin;.

Perhaps we should do it again next year? I think to few people wanted to trash the towel as intended and used it as a pit mat or souvenir.

I've got a few other ideas that might help the racers A LOT. I'd like to somehow address the things I see that irritate me or cause others to have a to do a lot of extra work.

I'd like to see a charge table with 10 chargers on it for the guys that are staging. It's a pain in the arse to pack all that stuff down there if you end up back to back or need a good peak. That would help me relax a bit. Likely a LOT of others too.

Also, packing and traveling with a tire truer is a HUGE pain in the butt. Perhaps that tire truing room could be setup with say 6 matching truers in it all guys would have to know is something like bring your favorite arbor with an 8mm bore.

I believe something like that would be a good fit for a company like Stormer Hobbies.

Even if there is just a power supply for both the tire true area and stageing .....it would be nice . Thanx for the towel Bob.

+1 on the staging chargers. That used to be a staple at the US Indoors. As the batteries got better, folks drifted away from it, but it was apparent this year that a peak at the line was still a good thing. Maybe if you chain them down some slime ball won't steal them either....

Just have to pack them up each night, prolly take 3-5 minutes. I think the other reason people got away from it was "what do you do with $3000 worth of used electronics?? That's a legit issue.

I think we can make this happen if Mr Bill and the crew are cool with it. We have time to start thinking about it, and planning.
