Default Later summer and fall on road racing!

Unfortunately the construction on the adjacent field has affected the new asphalt. It even looks different. But on-road racing continues, including a new class designed to encourage new racers: MOD TT02

MOD TTO2 is basically Tamiya TT02 class rules with gearing changes allowed so the cars go!
This class has lots of different skill levels running tough cars and is challenging to the new drivers and experienced ones who have to carefully thread through the pack. On last week's short road layout, lapped traffic was a constant issue. And with the open gearing, the TT02 cars can also run in the 21.5 class. That gives lots of use of your car, lots of races, and in this time of inflation good value with low entry fees (2 for $15)
There's also a local hobby shop (IamRC) nearby giving support if your rugged TT02 needs some parts.
See the face book "Radio Controlled Racers of Northern Virginia" page for more info
There are even a few videos of the slipping and sliding posted.

Update on the parking lot: The reconstruction project on the adjacent field is completed and the fenced-off construction storage area covering part of the track area has been dismantled. Only two huge waste collection dumpsters remain and hopefully they will disappear shortly. We should be able to set up the huge tracks the bigger eight-scale cars love soon.

Hey guys, the parking lot is empty and the rain washed away a lot of the construction dirt. We set up the biggest track in a long time this week and ran TT02 mod, VTA, 21.5 sedan, truck, SST, and eighth scale classes.

Come on out for the rest of the season, see the F-book page for more info.

I'll be attending my first event this Sunday as a newbie in the “Truck” class, which I heard is pretty much anything goes class. I was thinking of driving my Vorteks for this class.

Had fun today as my first event (ever) - I was in the Red Bull Slash 4x4 in the Truck class with the exploded rear tire. Was really happy with my times today as a first timer (20.850 fastest in A Main). Learned a lot today and enjoyed meeting everyone that I had the pleasure of meeting today. Sorry I had to leave early, but I had another RC meet I had to attend, but was running late since I was marshalling.

Looking forward to next weekend and hopefully the weather will be warmer!
