Hey Motojon,

Great to hear from U and please apologize to ur Grandad for me...I lost his phone# and when he called, I did not have the number to call him back.

Send me a PM with that info and I will be glad to talk with him. We are racing at the Artesia Transit Center in L.A. We have to submit the 2008 schedule to the city and if approved, we will race the 2nd weekend of the month beginning in Febuary.

We have some other special events in the works that will have us running twice in some months and there will be more to come on that, but, the RCX race is about done and we will have a flyer/entry form out before thee end of the month, here is the rough scan of thee site:

Motojon - I haven't raced in about 4yrs and I'm about to get back into it. I race 1/8 on-road and my friends have been talking to me on & off for a while to start back racing. I hope to get started by racing at the GLARCRC monthly race in Feb 2008 and plan on making the RCX (RC Expo) in April 2008.


Glen - Do you have a sign-up sheet for the RCX (R/C Expo) race at the Pomona Fairgrounds in April yet? If so, can you post it here. Is the club racing on the 2nd weekend in Feb. at the transit center? Trying to get me car ready for my first real race in 4 yrs.

Let me know. Thx

In the past couple years I have seen news reports of like 10 new 2wd car manufacturers in Europe. Seems there is some traction for a lower cost 2wd class over there. Too bad it won't happen in the US 'cause everybody moved away from 2wd here because they were "too hard to drive" compared to 4wd. Personally if it ever caught on here, I'd get one.

To combat "thread drift"... I'm plannung on attending this RCX race How is the pavement Glenn? Is it sealed or an unsealed cheese grater? What will you be using for track sauce, the Serpent stuff so 1/5 scalers and 1/8 scalers work well together?

RCX Update - Contracts have been finalized and we will distribute the flyer next week. Here are some of the essentials of the event

1). The entry fee is 40.00 Classes are: 1/10 nitro 200mm, 1/8 nitro, 1/5

2). There will be an entry deadline and absolutely NO late entries will be accepted.

3). Drivers are limited to 1 entry, because this event is limited to 120 cars max. (40 cars per class) no dual or triple entries allowed. In the event a class does not fill up, we will allow open signups until the max number of cars is reached. If there is a waiting list/class, they will be given signup priority by number on the list.

4). All participants MUST have current R.O.A.R. membership, no exceptions.

5). Participants will recieve a racer package by mail that will contain entry pass(es) to the race as well as to the RCX show and all event instructions.

This may become an annual race...hope we all have fun!!
