I'm tyring to figure out a way to make this one. I am hooked after IIC but that was easy for logistics since I could drive. Do most people just shove as much as they can into a suitcase and hope it's under 50 lbs? Also, how do you go about getting your lipos to the destination. I'll be driving to IIC again next year and likely the Denver race but would like to add this one to my list since I heard a lot of good comments in Vegas.

SouthWest Airlines, 2 bags fly free. Also, you can use a carry-on to spread the load. I believe SouthWest recently had a 40% off "sale" but that may have ended ?

You should have no problem with lipos in your lipo sack in your check baggage. If you try to bring them with you in your carry on, TSA may get a little freaky. I suggest weighing your bags at home on your bath scale or what ever, aim for 47lbs. I check all my gear and cars plus clothing in my totes. I put my tx in the carry on. Put your all your fluids in check baggage in a zip lock to contain high altitude oozing! If you can, true up your tires prior to leaving and you can possibly leave that thing at home. Mark has a house truer you can use in a pinch, but Mark's been a busy guy and that truer needs some TLC. Guys are super helpful at this race. It could quite possibly be the biggest most laid back fun intense race you will go to. That and Mario wont be there.

Stay dialed my friends.

bodine, you better hope that weather does not keep us from racing in pomona, because if we end up not going, i am flying up there just to snap your bodine-o-meter, kick mark's ass in f1, and drink the local corner store out of bud light. and dont think it wont happen. cause it might. not likely, but it might.

Mario I pray for rain in So Cal...... getting the F1 all fluffed up for ya..I just got watches ordered for all classes should be a bit better quality than last year Working on shirts right now. and will get the entry form up today, but online signup's are up and working....

Also calling the Best Western in Battle Ground today to see if they will cut us a break again in the past if you mention TZ they have offered a better rate then the crazy $110 some people have told me they are charging its a flipping small town not sure what they are thinking, here are a couple other options that are about 10 to 15 min from track.

Motel 6 Woodland WA 360-225-6548
Lewis River Inn: Woodland WA 800-543-4334

Does the $50.00 entry fee apply to the spec class as well? Just curious, because of the handout motor/esc rule, if it was going to affect the price. Either way, sounds like an awesome idea!

Hey Jesse Sorry still trying yo get the on-line signup's all sorted out.. the entry for ALL TC Classes is $60.00 but comes with one set of tires. The handout Speedo and motor for the Spec TC Class is a no charge item provided by Novak for the race, if you elect to keep them I beilive they will be $89.00 from Novak, but we will get Charlie to confirm.

Clete news flash you will be racing... wouldn't be the same without you
