Yes we do plan on bringing it to the new location, the 5' exhaust fan does wonders and the city is leaving us alone..

Boy do I like to hear that. A palce to race gas truck all winter. Will you be racing gas truck on the weekends at the new location?
Maybe I need to get an electric vehicle as well to make my day complete.

Default electric/nitro offroad

I only hope they are raced on separate days. I can't stand nitro indoors.

Amdrew - Check out the heading, its all about dirt here. I like it that way no issues with rubber/foam/racers.

Ben I agree gas needs to be separate from the electric racing. We will run them together from time to time, like the upcoming BBQ race at the end of the month. But we will give fair notice so that all are aware.

So can I assume that gas racing will, since you have to keep it seperate, be run on a weeknight only at the new location? Or could it be that you will run gas on Sat evening? Now that I would go for. I could be there every Sat night unless there is too much snow. Remember, I am speaking only of the new location. I know you have onroad on sat night at the current location.

Anything is possible at this point Gary, we will see once the new place is locked in stone what we can do.

Yeah, I'm looking forward to the BBQ race to see how bad the air gets. I stopped in on a Thursday to pick up some parts a while back and I personally thought it was pretty bad. Maybe that was before the fan was going

Ben, I have not seen you in on a Thursday since I brought the fan up. Believe me it helps a ton. The only time if bothers me is if when starting a motor I get some exhaust near the eyes. If the air get foul from to many running at one time, they will be asked to stop running until the air clears.
