We talked about Fridays too Freddy,but traffic sucks bad on 84 on Fridays especially.That's why we thought about the Sunday thing.This is all just feeling things out and trying to get racers during the summer.I know I won't be able to race as many Sat. in the summer by I could do Sun. mornings.

Hey appreciate the update on the LIR thread about the Anniversary race! I know my car has 4 racers in it for Saturday! Can't speak for anyone else but I think about the same amount of people from RCE are coming from LIR. Sounds like it's going to be pretty big, I'm excited!

Maybe one of you guys can post a short vid running some laps on the new layout so we can see?!

Not to take this conversation away on possible Sunday racing but as far as Wednesday night racing, have we looked at starting a liitle earlier, like around 6pm and try to gey out by 9 or 9:30.

Booooo. Dirty Mini Guinea can't make Saturdays or earlier then 6-6:30 on Wednesdays.
Just my 2 cents.

Is the shop going to be open tomorrow night? Might have to make new layout nights into indoor micro funfly, no? I gotz a newly rebuilt SR that needs a little tuning..........without any wind.
I also heard there are a few fellas with MSRs who might need a little practice..........

Second that. Part of the reason as to why I don't show up on Wednesdays anymore is because it ended too late. Wednesdays are school nights, so that explains that.

Ok, so I opened up a thread on the Racing Forums, so far there's only one reply and its mine....

My wife distributed fliers at RCE for the upcoming trophy race, all of us answered questions regarding tires, track layout, and fees.....there's a lot of interest in racing at RCHR, we just gotta make sure to keep our threads up in the front page of the racing forums, people will get interested and they'll come and race with us....

Trust me, it works, we just need for the local RCHR racers to help promote the events, get on here and hype the races up.

I don't know about you guys, but I enjoy racing with the fast guys from our region, even if it means placing last in the B-main....the fast guys will only show up if its big enough of a turnout....

There are way to many people that don't get out of work until 4-5 o'clock.I think if you try to start earlier you may even lose racers.I know that even working for myself that I would not be able to race as much.I am just way to busy to stop at 2 to get stuff ready and to start racing at 4.This is just my opinion.Tom,I don't have any spare axles.Sorry I did not get back to you yesterday.
