You guys are great. 4 of us with all our gear in a rented minivan. Tables and chairs are out of the question. If you have some for us , it would be a wonderful thing. I'm excited to see Utah in my rear view mirror.

Tables and chairs are definitely going to be needed by myself as well as my traveling partner, Brad.

Got it guys: already snaged stuff from the carpet track should have tables and chairs for around 45 to 50 out of town racers, already have coverd tarps up for 30 to 40 and setting up another big one this week. LOCALS bring your extra EZ ups if possible will help for the bright NW Sun we are sure to have this weekend...

Default 10th scale sedan tires

Can any of the locals let us out of towners know what foam tires to pack for 10th scale sedan? Has the tire selection changed since you've sealed the track?

This is sort of a hard question to answer. I have only had one practice day on the track with the new surface and tire wear is way down. I ran 37 fronts and 40 rears for roughly 6-8 tanks and had plenty of tire left. Left rear lost 1.5mm, left front lost 2mm, right rear lost .75mm, right front lost .25mm.

In the past I ran 45 lr, 42 rr, 40 lf, and 37 rf in a 30 minute main and saw a lot of wear but still made it no problem. Dave Ehrlich ran 45 rears and 35 fronts last year.

I think with the new surface I will plan on running 37 fronts and 40 rears in qualifying and 37 lf 35 rf and 42 lr and 40 rr in the main depending how long the main ends up being.


Mark, What 1/10th scale tires did you bring in for the race?

Also possibly looking for a PT, shock oil, and mainly XRAY Offset Spurs (64P) and Pinions (64).

Thanks!

OK: So the format for the race weekend is being adjusted just a bit as we see the qty of entries, and we have a lot of folks traveling from out of town so we want to maximize the track time...

Rocket Round Quals (3) Rounds

TC 5 min
IGT 5 min
10th Scale 5 min
8th Scale open 8 min

top (8) straight into the A with (2) bump up in the Lowers

Mains:

Tripple A Mains for Electric 5 min

Lower Mains 20 min (2) Bumps

A Main 30 min. IGT/10th Scale Gas

A Main 45 min. 8th Scale

Awards Top 3 in A-Main

Depending on Time if available we would like to increase the A mains for Sedan and IGT to 45 min

Track is all painted up and looks just awesome
How about making 1/8 gt qualifying the same time as 1/8 open?

I want to wager on Drew, Ralph and Mike in the go carts.... a five lap no holds barred scrap around TZR.

Plus I can't wait for the down and quiet diner Sat night hosted by the St Cyr's.

I think that I heard there is going to be some racing too.

Oh, found some shots of my hot laps. Never laughed so hard in my life.

Morning Guys: we will have Xray TC parts Spurs etc, at the track, and will bring all we have at the shop, we are out of PT's right now, but I'm sure we will have a couple extras........

we have 35, 38,40,42 front and 38,40,42 rears for 10th gas cars.

32,35,38 fronts, and 32,35,38 rear 8th scales

amazing how with just a couple things to do at the track you can still spend 12 hours at the track cleaning up... will be doing the same today, with the first batch of out ot town guys rolling in late this evening....


Weather is going to be great after tomorrow, and it is game on guys
