Great fun out there today guys! So good to see new (some new/old?) faces at the track. 10 touring cars, 6 WGT cars, and 5 F1 cars was an awesome turn out! So good to see the classes growing again.

Please keep in mind guys...as the classes grow a bit more people are going to bump and collide a bit more. Tempers will rise a bit from time to time. But lets try and remember no one is doing it deliberately and everyone is trying the best they can to drive well. But not everyone is at the same skill level. So if you feel the heat rising...take a breath and relax...remember this is for FUN! And if someone does say something...remember it is said in the heat of the moment and don't take it personally. As long as everyone remembers those we should avoid any major incidents.

was good fun today trying to chase someone that just keeps creating distance. Was really good to hear tips from Herbert. As for 1/12 turnout what are we going to do about that Burt? At this point the class is dead...

Yeah I don't know...Jonathan Bernath is supposed to be back racing next race. I thought Nick was supposed to be back this race but I guess he wasn't able to make it. Danny's got a couple 1/12th scales now and Frank and Jon H. and Wesley...the cars are out there just no one bringing them

I know. I'm so bummed with 1/12 recently. I've actually online window shopped But don't have the budget for a wgt. As of now 1/12 is the fastest class to be in.

And again a class dies off because another class has been put in place. Do I need to sell my 1/12 for a 10r5.1�� well see after I use all my tires at iic.

WGT isn't killing off 1/12th scale...the only people who went from 1/12th to WGT is Roy and myself. Roy's car is being rebuilt for IIC or he would be running both classes as well. If anything I'm glad WGT is there to pick up the slack. I really hope 1/12th comes back though...as much as I enjoy WGT...I enjoy 1/12th more.

Thanks IG and all the guys for all your hard work. It was great fun and great frustrations. Please be patient with this newbie. Trying hard to hone my "stay out of the way" skills. Already fixed a few things that got broke.

ShutDs...the gear insert for the Kimbrough gear replaces the bearing. Maybe your mod is better because you retain the bearing but hard to center. Not sure if the bearing on the gear is that critical. Gotta try and see if there's a difference.

Goots do not go to WGT....My 1/12th will be out as soon as I get back from IIC. Now that we are getting 2 heats of TC there is more time to run 2 classes. I hope this trend continues. Anyway WGT is for people who can't drive 1/12th.

P.S. Yesterday was a blast! Thanks to Burt, Danny & the rest of the gang that setup the track. The A main in TC was great. Thanks Mr. Herbert for coming out and spending the day with us.

Peace Out!

Goots, what ya vaping in that E Cig?

As for 12th, I think it should be back after IIC. I know I will. As for WGT, you want to run Frank's old car? You'll just need tirres and electronics. I'll be running trhe 10R5 after IIC also.

And as Burt said, I'm rebuilding for IIC or else I would've ran 12th yesterday. May even run the 12l and shelf the OP12 for awhile.
