Drew, Roar rules last time I was there and I think that will be the case this year.

How come nobody posts on forums any more?

Compared to what used to be, one month before the race, there's hardly anything posted here, and even less on SGRID.
Not much on facebook, and nothing really on Google+.

Speaking for just me, I post some on 2wd here but there's not enough hours in the day anymore.

By the way Mike, I'll be setting up a little mini museum this year, some of my stuff. Delta P4, P2, Super Eagle, Super J, a Thorpe (got some parts finally), an MRP GP180, some old show bodies, engines..pretty much the works. You take way better pics than I do....

Lot's of room to set up your own EZ-Up in row 2 behind the permanent pit shelters and at the ends of the track where the motor homes and trailer dwellers will be parked.

1. Do they check your age before allowing someone to sign up?
2. Can I force Ted Hammer into the Masters class for the midwest series?

Pit space, if you don't want a longer walk, isn't a bad idea, and Toledo has excellent pit areas. On the flip side, there's a huge spot between the pit areas good for an ez-up, plus space on the ends. Me, I'm coming with a camper so I get to walk a little more, plus I'm setting up a big ez-up for a display of vintage and antiques rc and I wouldn't want to crowd people. Last year there was more than enough space for everyone and all there stuff, so I think you'll like it....

Default Hey

Stupid question time. There may be a better place to ask it but I don't know where I'd get a better answer than here.

This is my first year running 4wd stuff and there's a lot I'm picking up along the way but a few things I don't quite get yet.

Ted made mention at the end of the last run that my setup was all wrong, so I went in search of Mugen and Serpent cheat sheets...a little homework. While I get most of it, several of the sheets I looked at talked about having a 1.5 toe out on the front. Either I no longer understand plain english with little pictures to go along with, or I'm reading it right, in which case I have no idea how that would work. I'm already taking it on faith that a few things I don't quite get must work or everyone wouldn't be doing it, but this one really has me confused...so if anyone has a moment to explain it to me, I'd sure appreciate it.
