That's a very nice track you guys have there! Good idea of only sealing the track line also, saved a lot of money probably.

Eric03, it was half the cost of sealing the entire parking lot.

It's dry in Hamilton as of 6:25am. A little overcast but it should be a great day for racing.

Wish I could be there. Pretty sure that I can not convince the wifey that Hamilton, Ont. is on the way to ILL from Ohio.

Good Luck.

Ted, we are hoping to see you make the trip up to Hamilton, Ontario at some point this year. Your traction mixture worked awesome today! I had the power on in places where I wouldn't have dared before sealer and Toledo traction goo!

WOW! Amazing Traction with 50% less Tire Wear. Thanks to FOSSIL and Ted for the advice.

New Track Lap Record by Lou Vanderway's Mugen. In fact three drivers broke into the 19s to better the Track Record.

I'll post the current Best Laps by Driver list soon.

Great Day of Racing. Don't listen to the weatherman.

Watch for the debut of Scott Smither's DELTA XP4 next Saturday. Scott is a former Cleveland US Indoor Champs 12th Scale Stock Champion.

Looks like you guys did your homework on track prep, It really makes me want to get back into 8th scale.

Lou sets a new fastest lap at 19.479. The old lap record was 20.162. Thats a big difference with the new sealed surface and the lap times are bound to drop a bit more through the season.

Nice run Lou.

I should have been there guy's, but with three kids and mother's day weekend it would have been a tough trip to make for me. the forecast had a 60% chance of rain so I held off on the 3 hr. drive. Figures the show went off without a hitch.

John K. and I should be there this coming weekend.

Can't wait!!

Captian, we have 2 multi day events this year, the Canadian Nationals on July 1-2 and the Can-Am Challenge on August 19-20. It'd be great to see you join in on the racing action!

Corey, You and John missed an excellent day of racing. The new sealer and traction compound have made a huge improvement. I plan to get our forum back online in the next few weeks. Hope to see you this coming weekend. What about Ray A.?
