Default R/C Tech LIVE from the 2004 ROAR Carpet Nationals @ The Gate in Cleveland, OH

Hi all,

For the remainder of the week I'll be bringing everybody live coverage of the 2004 ROAR Carpet Nationals from Cleveland, Ohio. As always there will be a full set of race pages, in addition to some new stuff that I'm going to try, including a semi-live webcam. I'll have more details on that as the week progresses.

BIG thanks to Xtreme R/C magazine, to Hurricane Motorsports, and to Team br00d and Avid R/C for helping me out with this event. Make sure to pick up a copy of XRC each month to read my crazy articles...

The track opens tomorrow at 7 AM and practice begins an hour later; visit www.clevelandcarpetracing.com for up-to-date entry lists and other information for this year's race. Everything looks great at the track and it's an insanely technical layout. Should be a great week.

Schedule:

Wednesday: Practice
Thursday: Practice
Friday: 2 Rounds
Saturday: 2 Rounds, Lower Mains
Sunday: Triple A Mains

The race uses qualifying points to seed the mains, just like last year.

More info to come. As always, enjoy the coverage from R/C Tech!

Shane, what time is qualifying starting on Friday? I need to get my drive time down to be there in time. I thought there was some practice on Friday along with 2 heats. Also, hows the wireless internet setup working?

There is no qualifying tommorow, it is open practice and Friday should be controlled practice followed by 2 rounds of qualifying.
