Actually I'm going F-1 Tamiya racing and 1/12 racing with a new Carpet Knife!! I'm planning on racing at WCRC--I talked to Bob Novak-- and he's said that the asphalt track at WCRC is AWSOME!! Good bite--indoors--nice place to race.
I'm trying to get my 1/12 scale car together to bring with my F-1's on Saturday. There's a large race Saturday with F-1's-- I just got my new Novak Havok 1c with 13.5 motor in the mail. Now If I can get my tires--rear axle and differential stuff in time--I can put my 1/12 together. But THAT'S THE PLAN STAN!!! I think it will help my 1/5 scale driving too--I've been racing 1/5 on road with FG cars--BIG FUN!!!
Anyway--after laying off of racing cars since "94" --I'm back in a BIG way!!!
Looking forward to swapping paint with some old friends--Jay Kimbrough has the new gear sets I need--and I talked to Tony Neisinger--he's gonna come play too!! All you old 1/12 scale guys---blow the dust off and come out and play!!!
Tim
PS--I did send a note out to Frank Calandra that I was using his car--trying to see if he can help with basic setups etc.--but he hasn't gotten back to me. Are they still active in racing? I saw the website--but website's don't mean much.

The entire CRC crew was at the Indoor Champs in Cleveland last week, so that's probably why they didn't respond. They were racing Wednesday - Sunday!

If you're in SoCal and wanting to run 12th, my first suggestion would be to check out OCRC. I visited this summer and there were 8-15 racers on a weekday race night. Sean Cochran and Mike McMahon were really helpful as well as Moose. It's indoor carpet in Huntington Beach.

sadly, OCRC shut down its carpet track and increased it's offroad track size.
