Wow! Yummylicious, I think instead of a trophy or plaque (not the one between your teeth) how about a gallon of Maxy's fuel that has a number 1st, 2nd, and 3rd on it to save some dough.

What I meant to say on my last post is to put a chicane at the beggining of the sttraight, make the last turn before the straight a chicane.

Yeah lets go racing !!!!

Leo,
Seems like Richard is a different person nowadays. i hear what you saying though, however let's give it another try. your support, idea and insight is very much appreciated. please make no mistake none of the locals has approach Richard about this. i have heard about those days with Marvin in regards to changes, from what i understand is that Marvin felt that he is being run-out of his facility. We will not not make that mistake. Richard is in charge no if's and or but. all we want is to see everyone have a good time and enjoy this hobby. please do not stay silent. your voice counts.

The attachment is a pic of the track with the new turn Richard and Keita added last Friday (see orange lines). I can't remember exactly where the turns were put, the perception from the driver's stand is different from a bird's eye view of the track. But the turns come in just at the end of the left straight. There will be more new turns to come.

Just a thought...it's pretty cool running the track counterclockwise as well.

As far as sponsorship, I can get my site www.frequency-rc.com to throw in some stuff for say a raffle or something. We don't make any dough on FRC, but I'm sure Mike, Jun, and I can pony up some dough to get some FRC hats, stickers, or shirts done up (still working on gettting FRC Wear John). I'm also pretty sure I can get our other forum, bannedrc, to show some love and donate a couple of shirts. I can also see if I can get a buddy of mine to paint up a 1/8th body and 200mm TC body for raffle or 1st/2nd place prize.

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.
There ARE people interested in running there. just way toooo big even for 1/8 scale. we ran the 1/8 when we went there, and the motor was almost tapped out even with the kink before the straight. You can't really appreciate the speed of the 1/8 because the cars are just too far away from the stand.

My 2 cents...I can understand that with 1/10th scale (night or day) there is some difficulty to see. But running the 1/8's at SV (which I run almost every weekend, got the tan lines to prove it) is not much of a problem. I don't know, maybe it's me running there so often, but I don't have a problem seeing the cars.

Bocal,
Did you try different gearing? if you use to run at revealation, those gearing will tap out way before you get to the straightaway. 1/8 scale is not that small from the driver stand. well it is different track, is it not the point. something different. it's the "challenge" to make it work?. there use to be lot's of drivers run around this track with no problem. personnally, i could not appreciate the power of this monsters from the drivers point of view ( i could not get enough speed and power) if i want to appreciate the enormous power i stop and just watch this pro's run around. i run my cars but i am also a BIG FAN of a GOOD DRIVER. it is the balance of Swaueger(driver)and power and speed of a fine tuned car. that is what i love about this hobby. there are many of you out there. i just use Mike Swauger as an example(sorry Mike) as a matter of fact some of the locals here are up and coming. they are getting better and better (Roy,Kelvin,Jae, and the latest addition Keitha with his brand new MRX-4R/Ninja motor).
Bocal try something different, you might like it.........

He used to be really fast until age got the better of him, you know, his eye sight is not what it used to be;hence the issue with depth of field

the straight away lenght is long but the problem is the cars get
such a good run coming into the straight that you will top out
a 1/8th by half track. I had to slow down before the straight
so that i wouldn't have to let go half way down the track.

The best suggestion ive heard is to put a chicane before the straight.
Everything else you can get used to.

Nice track and nice locals from what I remember.
