Default Shootout

Lets get a poll started.

I am thinking of an 1/8th scale Shootout.

How many are interested?

What up Roy that sounds good too, but if they want to get this track up and going again the track needs to get preped up very good for the first big race like that so when everyone comes out they have no complaints and they need all scales as in 1/10 and 1/8 so they get a big turnout and everyone sees that they are making changes. Then after the first big race they can break it up and have a 1/8 shoot out or whatever they want to do. Just my 2 cents

Don't forget that this track is also raced by 1/5th scalers, touring, f1, and bikes too.

Well, I figure that running 1/8th scale first would be a good start. Get the track back on the RC map. Am sure the local boys at SV will get together to prep the track for the big race. Running only 1/8th scale will showcase the track, in my opinion.

Some people have mentioned that the track is too big for 1/10th. In order to run 1/10th scale, the track needs to be modified. It would be tough to run both at the same time.

Besides, I am just trying to see if there are people interested.

First thing that needs to be done is shorten the straight away, if not it will be hard to convince the sedan racers and even 1/8 racers

with the right gearing, the 1/8th scalers will not have any problems. It is a lot of fun seeing the full power of the .21 engine.


regarding 1/10th scalers, we recognize the size of the track does not suit the car. The track do need to be modified in order for the 1/10th scale to enjoy the track.

With the new turns on the left straight the momentum coming into the back straight is different. There is a difference with the straight now that the turns were added on the left. Cars (1/10 or 1/8) would be shifting just at the turn into the straight. But now (without touching the cars shifting point) 2nd gear would kick in towards the middle of the straight. Would this help with the "shorten the straight away" issue?

We could shorthen the track by basicly bypassing the left side. I think that is the easiest way. That way the 1/5 scalers and people that like the long straight could run too.

Check the pic..

Just shorten the Straightaway there are more sedan racers than 1/8 racers

Or put a big ass ramp on the straight-a-way that will shoot your car to the off-road track and enjoy on-road and off-road racing at the same time.

I actually like the sweepwer at the end of the straight too, I think a better idea might be to make the sweepr before the end of the straight a chicane, that way we are not WOT allready, the cars would have to accelerate from a slower speed.

I also think the first big race should be 1/8ths and TCs, we need to get a volume of people, so that more of them will want to keep coming.

Hey Guys

I used to race KZ a few years ago when there was about 20 of us local guys there every weekend...it had the same problems it has now but we all dealt with it and we always had a great time...what happened is so many people became so "professional" that a track like KZ became out of the question...the other major problem that happened is that somebody at the track started to turn away people's idea to improve the track and that completely turned away people...i was already told to shut up once so im not going to get involved again BUT i will be there to support the track....let us know when there is a race and ill be there...

See u there Arno....its about time u got a sedan!

Leo

MAXY's Shootout sounds real GOOD.. Let's do this guys... Let's make the reg. fee cheap too so everybody can afford it.. And instead of a trophy, maybe maxy can just donate cool plaques. I'm sure by doing this, not only racers in LA area and Inland Empire but the valley and Ventura County as well..good promotion for the Fuel too..Freelance...I mean perfecto!!!

And tell Richard make sure that Ana Nicole look alike is there with her food truck ..
