Here are the 2 options so far for this year 08-09 season. Give some feedback or suggest a change. Really pumped about this season coming up. There may be a change in equipment this year.

Rob, Blake made an ST out of one of his XRAY chassis. Ill try to get pics.

Rob, Morris, Chris. Any of you think about racing ST this year? That would be a fun time. Open wheeled chaos

i like the first track lay out, and i like the other! I'm torn..First is faster and more flowing but second looks like more skill required to get it just right...BUILD THEM BOTH!!

Amb is a done deal. I made the decison to switch. As more and more racers already have personals, it seemed like a good idea. As of now there are NO house transponders. I am working on getting some, but start to get your own Personal transponders.

I hope that this is a decison everyone will like. I am planning on having a few PT's for loan by the race season.

Good Idea? or Bad?

aaron,
thats great about the pt system...and you are aware that they costly a little.if you are going to have pt for people to use i would just charge a little fee.i think that would be fair enouph.i like either track...fast or technical wont matter.will be ordering the new tc prolly next week.

No they will not. I am putting them in with the deal to sell the system. I call you about it Blake.

AMB is kind of what everyone else uses so I thought it was good to make the switch now. I know it will cost some extra money to you guys, having to but new PT, but it will be worth it. Plus with free racing how can you complain.

Matt, I know they cost more money but Ill just have to keep better track of who has em, and if not returned then charge a fee. But with the PT's you can track exactly what number they have. As with the old ones I couldn't track as accurately. Either way I am excited to make this move.

aaron,
i would still charge the amount you charged last year for the use of the transponder for a race night.
in awhile they will pay for themselves..and yes its great that racing is free...but remember that you do spend lute to get supplies for the track.

you still going to race on the monday night thing...or will the weekend come along..heck even like a friday night would be nice....lol

altoona id racing saterday for carpet this year.

Yeah I can be open to a Friday night schedule. As of now it will be a Monday night. I want to talk with everyone and see if a change is something they are for. But Monday's seem to work well for everyone.

I would like to do more weekend events this year.
