It was great to see Sean on the rug once again. Too bad the electrical gremlin came with him. Mod 12th is a blast at the Hanger, there's always next time. Great to see some new faces in 12th as well, welcome Dave. I didn't draw your heat, but I got to marshal it and it looks like you are well on your way. Bill's ride looked pretty sharp in R1 till that freaky little spin out occurred. I looked at his car briefly after the run and noticed his tires were peeling. Always keep a close look at your tires. Make sure the edges are glued every run!

Whether guys knew it or not was a make or break evening for my MS3L car. I have one little issue that has kept it from going into production. The part I tested was either going to show promise or remain the same. If it remained, I was going to discontinue the car. Well, it showed promise. So the carrot is dangled in front me a little longer. It's a heavy day at the drawing board. We'll see if I can get near production parts ready for the TZ2 in Nov.

Hey Brian, thanks for the advice last night. I'll be working on setup before the next race.

Alex had told me to glue the tires too, as the fronts went before the rears....I used a little flat-tip screwdriver to apply the glue, but don't think I used enough before R2.

Staying off the pipe should help with my tire issues as well.

Default Race Results

The full dish of race results, quals and mains, is up on the club's website.

http://seattlercracers.com/race-results/

From now on, I will post the five A Mains as soon as possible on the thread, usually the night of, and then I'll follow up with the complete results on the club's site within a day or two.

Enjoy.

Next race on the 28th!

Looked at the genX last night real quick. After the XL upgrade I've got at least 4-5mm of rear pod droop. The shock is too long...I used the wrong ball cup on the top end.

Definitely gonna run thru it and hopefully be dialed for the 28th!

Izzy, Aaron and I had a great time Wednesday. Thanks again for the loaner, Todd. (I hope I didn't trash your new body too bad!)

I am curious, though--why didn't the novice main run first so we could get the brats, I mean the next generation, out the door as early as possible?

If anyone has pictures from this past Wed night H-30 race they'd like to donate, please PM me to get my email addy. I'd like to put a few up on the club's Facebook page.

Sorry, I left the camera in Troy's truck, and forgot about it.

It was good to see all the familiar faces. I guess I might have to buck up the unemployment funds to race again.

The committee chose to have any B Mains run first so that bumps could be managed in time for the end of the rotations. Novice & 1/18th scale was to be the 1st up after any lowers.

Wow, it was only 19 months since your last post. Heck I couldn't even remember your username. Good visiting with you on Wednesday.

Questions?? Are there specs for 1/18th scale?

I was a spectator on Wednesday, but now I have the d$%n racing itch again. There must be something in the wintergreen aroma... I spent a couple seasons racing 10th scale electric on-road in the 80s with SARCAR.

I thought I'd get back into things slowly and it looked like 1/18th scale could use some more racers. Or is the 1/18th scale division likely to go away from lack of racers?

What are the specs for 1/18th scale? I'm leaning toward an XRay M18 Pro, but I'm lost in the mire of motor and battery choices. I'm familiar with Novak and Tekin from 20+ years ago, so was leaning toward a Novak brushless setup with Li-Po, but don't want to plunk down money for something that doesn't fit the specs.

Help?

Thanks,
- David

Ohhhh! That makes sense. I'm still working on my mastery of the obvious.
