Default A chance to support r/c racing

I have been spending some time trying to think out side of the box in order to improve my racetrack. I have become a fan of crowd source financing over the past year which takes the old saying "if I had a dollar from everyone I....”.

So I am putting that to the test in an experiment on something that I have never saw done before in r/c racing. Usually the first guy through the door gets shot, but maybe this time it will be different?

Angela and I are looking forward to the 2013/2014 racing season at Red Mosquito raceway. I have some projects that I would like to get done at the track. Take a look at my indiegogo crowd source-financing project. If you can like, share, and donate that would be awesome!

Thank you!
Monti

Done. The place looked great for Nationals, and it's amazing how you were able to recycle most of what was already there. I can only imagine how awesome it would look without the wood paneling
Although, I thought the bump added character. I was probably going too slow.

Just wanted to share what has been going on with our Indiegogo campaign. We have raised enough money to fix the floor and today that happened! Thank you so much for everyone's support. Now with only 11 days to go let's get to our goal so we can finish the rest of our wish list!

Do you have a rough breakdown of oval versus on-road donations?

I am pretty sure turning right AND left requires a higher IQ and probably has a correlation to higher socioeconomic status - therefore increased ability to donate.

On-road can not lose to oval.

In other words.... DONATION CONTEST

I don't know what the % breakdown is in dollars, but the on-road guys need to step it up.

Skip starbucks tomorrow and give the $5 to RMR so we can race this year.
