Nice, Just let me know which weekend you are planning on going for practice...
You'll also be surprised how many places there are to eat now that the surrounding area is fully developed....

Yo Brother Robbie,

How's it going? I'm actually thinking about doing some SoCal racing this
season. Nice weather there! I spent too much time at the hot races last
season.

I did not see anything mentioned on the flyer or a posting on this thread
in regards to Friday Open Practice. Will there be any? If so, I'll look in
to some Airline tickets.....

See ya!

T-Dawg

What days do they club race on? I can make it up there on Fridays easily if there is any kind of turnout to get the grip up.

First week of every month.

If you want to test, the track is open Tuesday thru Sunday, e-mail the track owner James Reese he prepares the track every weekend race or not.

The electric cars look really good, I was surprised when I saw how fast and hooked up they were.

Sounds good, I'll have a nitro sedan coming today as well, so I'll give that a shot along with the electric class. Is there a pro/sportsman class for nitro sedan or just all mixed in?

What are the best bodies out there for nitro sedan, and what shore tires are most commonly used?

Dodge Stratus 200mm

Tire shores used are 40's and 42's

Sedan class is currently all mix, I would like to separate the class in the future if and when the turn out is larger.

Sounds good, I'll order some 40's and 42's to test and get a body out to my painter asap. Been looking for a good excuse to run some nitro sedan for a while, and this race will be perfect since I can race elec. too.

Just got back from practice yesterday. The tire wear is getting back to normal since the layout change. I ran for approx 20min and had less than 1.5 millimeter tire wear for 1/8th....

The electric mod cars were hooked up so hopefully there will be a good turn out for the electric class....
