Also don't forget to bring out the 10 th scales. The racers found a pretty successful short cut that cuts the track almost in half. I was seeing low to mid 30s for lap times

I was out practicing on the 1/10 scale shortcut, it makes the track quite manageable for even 2wheel drive buggys. It would be a blast if it were watered.

it probably got watered last night! At some point it's better to sweep instead of watering. Getting all of that loose dirt swept off makes for a good surface at that track from what our past has showed us. I have a feeling there will be a lot of people out there tomorrow.

7 days away... It's been too long since our last race. We'll have a 1/8 and 1/10th scale circuit for all future races.

I am also looking forward to Saturday! This cooler weather is so much nicer for racing. I know the track will be good as I have heard different people planning on going out to do some work. Actually right now, it looks pretty good. I know Rick has been talking to a lot of people that have been running out there so hopefully they will come race. I am dying to see that track with a big field of racers. Hope you can make it.

I was just wondering why we have not seen any results posted for any of the races, it mught help draw some more folks out. Knowing that you have people showing up for each race makes more people want to be involved.

They are still figuring out the new system. I think I got them squared away. Plus do you race to race or see your name on rctech?
