Yeah... pretty much just want to be sure we are all running close to the same motors. (no helicopter armatures) My issue with the Xray Stock motor is the lack of availability... seems to be getting tougher to find them as time goes on.

The Orion 180s seem to be a good option, readily available too:

Or just go to the regular HPI 180 motor... I'm fine with the Stock Xray, I've got 1 or 2 that pull great amperage, but I'm just trying to look out for the not-so-regular 18th scaler.

Either way you guys choose to go, I'm cool with it... just happy to be racing !

Smile Track Dims

Berm -

Overall the track will be roughly 30x25 feet but track width (in between barriers) will be about 40" wide in the narrow sections and up to 60" wide in the high speed areas and most straights.

Thumbs up

Looks like we will have a 1/18th scale category. Plenty of interest from the local crew.

F1 is still unknown - no pre-registers yet.

Going to the 301 1/10th race and will hopefully plug our race more there.

Spectators will be welcome and will be eligible for premium raffle prizes with purhcase of tickets. Pre-registered drivers will get a a RC raffle prize ticket for each car entry and a single premium raffle prize ticket. Race day entries get only RC raffle prize tickets unless they buy additiaonl raffle tickets for premium prizes (e.g. autographed items and RTR kits).

Things are shaping up and looking good.

Hope to see you all there. Don't forget to pre-register to get your t-shirt and premium raffle prize ticket.

Salud!

Exclamation PRIZES, PRIZES, PRIZES

Drivers,

We just received a practical treasure chest of prizes from Kyosho for the ALS Charity Race and I realized that I had not posted the full list.

We haven’t received many pre-registrants and wanted to make sure you all knew what was on the list to give away. Probably the best list of items that I have seen in a long time for an event like this. Here is what we are looking at so far to give away:

General Prizes:
- Kyosho MiniZ Edwards RTR
- Kyosho MiniZ Harvick RTR
- Kyosho MiniZ Audi DTM Red Bull RTR
- Kyosho MiniZ Audi DTM Sports Team RTR
- Kyosho MiniZ MR-02 Chassis kits (2)
- Kyosho MiniZ workstands (2)
- Kyosho Promo Kits (t-shirts, MiniZ work-stands, key chains, etc)
- GRP/Gandini Promo Kits (pit towels, key chains, lanyards, etc)
- RC Car Action Books
- RC Car Action Promo Kit (hat, pit towel…)
- RCP Wide-L Track Kit
- AutoArt Promo Kits

Premium Prizes:
- Kyosho Mini Inferno Half8 09 Type 2 Nitro RTR
- Kyosho Mini Inferno Half8 Type 2 EC RTR (2)
- Cal Ripken Jr. Autographed Jersey
- Helios Castroneves Autographed Helmet
- Mario Andretti Autographed Helmet
- Sam Hornish Jr. Autographed Helmet
- Framed Kisten print of N. Piquet and R. Moreno F1 finish (Autographed by Kisten, Piquet, & Moreno).


Every registrant will get one raffle ticket for the general items and CoreSpeedway Transponders for each car registered.

MOTIVATION TO PRE-REGISTER:
Pre-registrants will get one raffle ticket for the general items and one raffle ticket for the premium items, a t-shirt

To increase your odds Premium Prize raffle tickets are available for purchase for $5 each and can be purchased by spectators.

More prizes still set to come in so the list will only keep growing.

Keep the rubber side down,
NCRC

Thumbs up Preliminary Track Layout for ALS Race

Here you go drivers. Attached is the prelminary layout for next month's charity race.

This is a basic representation and we can already tell you that some sections will have sweepers rather than 90deg turns depicted. We will also be adding the bump outs for certain side rails where appropriate.

Any questions please get in touch.

The entries are now pouring in and it looks like we will have a great race.

When it comes to local hobby shops carrying MiniZs you will have some slim pickings. The only one that I know of that will have any type of selection for this car is C Whitts down in Clinton (http://www.cwhits.com/). Its a drive but you won't find MiniZ stuff anywhere else but maybe Mimi's in Gaithersburg.
