Default 555

Kinda boring here on rctech.

BUT!!!, I just wanted to get on here and say the actual racing at 555 has been a LOT OF FUN! I am very appreciative of the work that Matt and Sean have done. Let's keep making this place better and more fun!

We are planning to have a few races a year, maybe every 6 weeks, besides special events. The "club" consists of only a few people. We have purchased a timing system and our own PA. All track work is done by myself and no one is authorized to do any track work on their own. Anyone is welcome to practice there anytime they like, but please leave your shovels at home. I will be at the track the week of the race all week long getting it ready if anyone would like to help. There will be a layout change in the near future but I would expect it to be very similar to what we have now. Triple Nickel is dedicated to 1/8 scale racing so our tracks will be geared toward 1/8th scale....with larger jumps and rougher terrain. We are not interested in entertaining 10th scale racing nor will we be building any "10th scale friendly" layouts although 10th scale is welcome to come and run on the track if they like. If it is too aggressive for anyone I would suggest trying FZRC, SS, Beachline, OCRC, Daytona, Shiverville, Coral Springs, B&B, Lake Park or Deans which are geared more toward 10th scale. We will also be closing in the announcers booth soon as well as adding some more RV outlets and hopefully some more lighting. Hope that answers all your questions.

I didn't ask about the club because I wanted to stage a hostile takeover on behalf of 10th scale drivers. I am primarily an 8th scale driver myself.

I feel you should know why I posted the question in the first place. I recently did a show were I was given some leftover materiel consisting of 9-4X8 sheets of T-11 plywood, 12 sheets of 3/4" 4X8 marine pt plywood and 25 or so 2x4x8 pt. I am happy to say that Habitat for Humanity was very happy to take it off my hands. Surprisingly enough, they did so with out giving me a outline on what their goal is. They simply said "thank you very much". Maybe I should of been a little clearer on why I was asking the question but I thought it was a simple question and I didn't think I had to approach it like I was going in front of some kind or corporate exam board.
