Speaking of "the Hoff"...did you know they may be bringing back the Knight Rider series? The Trans Am is gonna be replaced by the Mustang, the running red lights are gone and Michael Knight's son is gonna be driving. "The Hoff" will be doing a cameo. No word yet if the grease monkey is gonna be a well-endowed babe (pre Bonnie) or if Knight's boss is gonna be a female ala Bond 007 2K.

Last I heard, Kate Beckinsdale is gonna voice the new KITT...I wish. That babe is HOT! POOF!

Trivia...anyone still remember what the acronym K.I.T.T. stood for? Anyone?

RANT WARNING!!!

Guys...I'm really worried about the decline in track attendance in general and Silvercan in particular. If we wanna keep guys like JPRacing and Speedzone open..or better yet open up more tracks..we need MORE racers.

Question is "how"?

One problem I see is the gap between a "true" noob, a semi-noob (me) and a group like Team Silvertuned. Let's face it...anyone who's gonna run TC for the 1st time using a stock, out of box kit or RTR even in SC is gonna have a hard time being "competitive".

AND C'MON...no matter how much we assure a noob that it's all for the sake of "fun"...it's no "fun" when you're getting lapped by everyone else.

On a psychological level...a noob walks into JP hyped up and ready to race with his (another problem there) spankin new kit...he spots me or kiriz or porshaa or shrewd AND our full blown race kit decked out with tire warmers and a motor cooler on a setup station. A) he's gonna be impressed and b) once he learns we're in his class, he's gonna start thinking less than happy thoughts. Somethin along the lines of "what the hell have I gotten myself into?"

Oh...and if we're talking about a dad with his kid in tow...the thought process maybe more like..."how much is this gonna cost?" And don't get me started with the spouse/girlfriend angle.

On a financial level here's the scenario...guy with stock TA05 sees an MS and starts thinking of how he's gonna upgrade. And if he can't coz of other priorities, what do you think he's gonna do? a) rob a bank b) break up with his GF or c) look for a "cheaper" hobby.

This is not a problem of those that have the inclination for the hobby or the money to spend or do not face the realities of a family, but this is not the case of the majority.

What then can we do?

The only thing I can think of is to redefine the SC class...have 2 levels in one race.

SC1 will be confined to BOX-STOCK, BASE model, limited upgrade tub chassis cars and NiMh/NiCad batts only...no carbon/carbon reinforced/alum parts and no LiPo.

Only the ff upgrades will be allowed: bushing to ball-bearing, gearing, dampers, stabs, tires, body. No other upgrades/hop ups allowed...ie changing a diff to spool or one-way, gear diff to ball diff, upgrading to TT01D plastic parts etc.

ESC will be limited to brushed with 23T max capacity.

SC2 will allow ALL upgrades, variants, full blown "race-kits" and LiPos.

Both will run SIMULTANEOUSLY so that it doesn't add to the organizer's workload.

Each class will have a top 3.

That way a noob running a box stock TA05 setup has a realistic chance to see the podium. He can now concentrate on his race instead of the guy lapping him running a TA05MS. The race will have a lot more cars.

More importantly, it allows the noob to concentrate on driving techniques instead of worrying about what to buy next and where to get the money from. It redirects the cycle of expense from upgrading to completing a base setup (tools, chargers, batts etc)...and it maximizes the investment of a box kit.

This may not be "the" solution or I could be coming at it from a wrong angle...what I do know is this. The survival of the hobby is in our hands and if we do not act...noone is gonna do it for us. When the tracks close there will be no races. If there are no races then there will be no reason to buy kits or parts. If noone buys kits/parts you can say goodbye to LHS.

However, this only addresses the concern of those that show up at the track...what about those that are buying a kit for the first time and don't know about JP or Speedzone...that's a rant for another day. My fingers are tired.

neil has a point....but what if we make the SC for only the box stock tt-01?
so that noobs will have a fair game with us(SC class racers)...and also this will help for those noobs to practice their driving skills..

hmm... ewan ko, ako walang problema knowing my age, I'm 31 and my birthday is on May 13 pero I was watching Knight Rider when I had my first Tamiya Hornet

Hirap naman ng tanong mo Lalo yata mahahati ang racers nyan sa dami classes. I prefer the current set-up of club races, general/silver can, 23T and mod. Normal lang yan ganyan wave, minsan marami, minsan konti. Pag may nagbukas pa ng bagong race track, lalo pa mahahati ang racers coz they would prefer to run on the nearby track Hintayin mo mag tag-ulan, balik tayo sa dati when we started the club races For sure, I'll be racing kasi di pwede lumipad
