Back to RC of course .....
ROAR has definitely made great strides in recent years. You could see the event level workings starting to form up at the 2009 carpet nats, and it appears that they have continued to improve. That's great news for the hobby/sport.

And yeah, I'm from Ohio. Nobody outside of Cleveland cares about Lebron at all, and even most there couldn't care less. The only real professional sporting events in Ohio happen at Mid-Ohio Sportscar Course. True sports involve only how big ones' balls are, not how well a bunch of dudes can handle them.

25-0 now ! But to be fair sports is about health to me, both mental(closer to Rc) and physical (Basketball/entertainment).... I enjoy watching the Ifmar worlds as much as the NBA championship games... I see lots of people in Rc that would benefit greatly from some physical activity ..... I practice both .....

Yes I agree.

Speaking for myself...I think it's important to have racers organize a race like this.Especially racers that have been to other big races.
They know how important toilet paper is.lol

I had a question for the track builders, what type of wood was used to make the large arc defining the sweeper at the end of the straight? It stood up very well over the weekend but seems to be more flexible than plywood of that thickness would be. Was it some type of MDF?

The edge boards were PVC but this center curve was made up of two pieces of wood screwed together. I don't think square sold PVC stock would be flexible enough to make the curve happen:

It was some kind of plastic from what I was told. Something they found at Home Depot.

Its vinyl. I think LF told me it is used for detail and trim on house exteriors.

The guys did a superb job of building the nats track. Not only did it look super clean with those nice smooth curves, it held up really well. Everything stayed in place and hardly had to be touched throughout the event. Honestly, one of the best I've ever run on
