good vids, been watching them from the UK, qeustion though,

ive seen a few indoor capret tracks from the states and they all seem to have in common one thing, the track width is so narrow yet you have quite a large overall space,

how come you guys dont make the track slightly larger ?

Great vids and dont get me wrong I would race on those tracks in a second if i were there. Are they open all week ?

Are there model shops incorporated into these indoor facilities ? something we lack in the UK are model shops with indoor testing tracks.

The lanes are like 6 feet wide at that track. The outside of the carpet is used for oval racing if you wondered why they aren't using the extra bit. There is a board at turn two that transforms the track from oval to road course.

At one point the carpet was being completely used (before oval racing experienced a boom in popularity). Some of the drivers thought it was way too long that way though from what I heard.

You can spy on people there with the webcam too. www.mikeshobbyshop.com

WINNER BOB NILSEN! I'd make it flash but I don't know how.

For another RC Techer sighting anyone care to guess who the marshall to the right was/is? Can someone get the guy a chair?

cough*britracer*cough

p.s. Any marshall sitting in a chair is really doing a disservice to their fellow racer. I totally hate it people who sit in a chair. That's just half assed marshalling.

p.p.s. THE WINNER IS STILL BOB!!!

We will make sure to keep the camera lanes free next time.. or look for a shorter marshall on the camera side!

Keep up the neat camera work. I am planning to get out my video camera and try to replicate what you've done. I know mine is MiniDV but I dunno if it has the fancy lens you referred to in another post. I may be in touch for some hints!

That was a good race considering the pink car was being driven by a guy that has never driven the car.

Hey James, can you put the first video you did today on your website. I dont care if it is edited.....I just want to see where I could shave off some more time at.

Again, nice video... now I think I'll come out to T&T to race next time.

I'm not sure if you're looking for feedback, but in my opinion the music could be mixed down a bit.
