Hey gang, with only 2 races left on the Wed Night program at H30, lets go up like a lipo fire! Super fun short track racing! Set up at 5p. Lights out by 10:30p. That leaves you plenty of time to go snuggle with the honey or go to the Broiler. And don't forget that 2nd entry is only $5! Be like Swadener and race everything!

contacts have been good to me for club racing - cheap enough to cut down, and to give up when chunked

32 or 30f and 30r have been great!

Default *New* Hirosaka Mod Motors for Sale

Hi all!

I will be bringing by three, new-in-package motors to sell tonight at the Community Center. Just wanted to give everyone a heads-up in case there is interest at the race.

I have three NIP Hirosaka brand motors; a 5.5T, a 6.5T, and a 7.5T. They were part of a lot that I purchased on eBay, but I can't use them. I heard they might be useful for off-road racing.

I'm asking $30 each, or offer. I'll be pitting in the bleachers tonight; stop by and say hi!

Peace,
Sam

Default 11Mar2017 CC Results

The penultimate round of the 2016-2017 Magnuson CC season was a sterling effort. We were 59 entries strong, we introduced two new racers to the club, we set the track up in 29 minutes, and we tore it down in less than that. And the racing rose to a high level, with competitive qualifying and main action in all classes. This is the product of collective effort, a dialed in system, and a passion to race. Let's never take what we have for granted!

Scale Spec remains this club's best offering to the racing cosmos. A quick reiteration of what it's about is perhaps in order. It is a racing class for all skill levels. The modest power spec means it is accessible to racers of improving and proven abilities alike. At its best, it is low speed, high skill racing. By no means is anyone expected to “move up” or “make way.” It is a class where racers can find a long term, permanent home. For those on a budget of time, money, or both, who want to race hard without burning through tires and drive train components, Scale Spec is the class! It is also one of the two classes tihat maintains a scale aspect. No aero blobs or doorstops in Scale Spec. We like to see cool, lifelike cars.

Hector Garcia is enjoying his Seattle Scale Spec experience. As the Portland racing scene looks to develop their indoor onroad program, I hope they consider Scale Spec as a foundation class on which to build their program. Perhaps Hector or Ryan Brownlee can lead the charge to establish and support the effort, as they are two proven wheels who have shown well up here and can speak for it in person.

This season in Stock 1/12th has been a rebuilding year, with a reliable crew that is adding numbers steadily. It has also been a year beset by the latest iteration of the Stock motor wars. For those with access to the Team Scream or Motiv power plants, it has been one class. For those looking in from the outside, it has been another. As the French protested for years (and were eventually validated, by the way) that Le Tour was a contest at two speeds, doped and clean, so too are Stock racers forced to acquire at considerable cost and uncertain wait the latest gear if they have any expectation of being on the lead lap. Unfortunately, the best motors are hard to get right now. To get a Team Scream, you have to pay $150 and then wait for some number of weeks, with no assurance as to its delivery date. The Motiv is less expensive, $100, but the wait is no less. Frustrating. But, Stock racers are not to be denied, whether in 1/12th or Touring, 17.5 remains America's class. Brian, me, and Ron Lui were running Motivs last night. They make good power, and we were 1-2-3.

Our Novices showed again, with two new recruits, Kai and Von, making their debuts at the Community Center. I will call out here that our Novice program continues to be an effective onramp for new racers, as evidenced by a racer no longer in Novice: Joshua D. Joshua graduated from Novice earlier in the season, after starting with us last summer at Seatac. He finished in the top three last night in Scale Spec. That's fantastic. I hope these Novices can take encouragement from him and many others who came before, who started slow, gained knowledge and basic track skills, and then took their game to Scale Spec.

Modified Touring, Formula 1, Stock Touring, and Modified 1/12th all ran hard and fast. Trav won Mod TC. Russ won Formula 1. Donny won Stock TC. And Brian won Mod 1/12th. No one should be surprised by those outcomes. Those are the guys with tremendous experience and skills on the bench and track. Go visit them in their pit, watch how the work, and marvel at how they drive. You can learn a lot.

Final results are attached. Extended results can be found at RC Scoring Pro under our track. Check out the cool features and geek out. Two weeks to the ECC and the Hangar. We will have points cups for the season.

There were several track records Sat night. Great work by all!

The Mason's are boxing up and heading back to their newly remodeled home. I think it's been nearly a year, at least 9m, since framing hammers and Sawzalls removed the roof of their single story house to make room for an "upstairs". Pretty exciting time. And while we appreciate the dedication Todd brings to the program, we can afford to cut him some slack until he gets tucked back into his old address.

With just one more Wed Night Worlds at the infamous Hangar 30 left to attend on Mar 22nd....and just one last cherry on our sundae, a small little thing called ECC on Mar 25th... lets go out with a bang before the rug gets rolled for the summer.
