I have some ideas I am working on for the other side of the building and in time I want to do somthing different like FEAR racing or Oval/FEAR mixed. on the cement.

Wow I didn't know your were I charge of the track I personally don't care if somone wanted to run their slash as long as it was clean but that's just me I'm not in charge if I gets people interested in the club its a good thing
Sorry I am just looking out for the Carpet because it cost $$$ and as a long time Carpet racer I have seen what buggys/trucks can do to the surface.

I can see how dirt and/ or newbie "parking lot racers may not pay any attention to loose screws on the bottom of the chassis ( and why should they ) , or other things things atop the car that would easily cut carpet. That plus the knobby tires... and dirt that inevitably would end up on the track due to a quick run on the concrete hanger floor. The purpose built on road cars with their limited clearance and fine pitch gears are enough of a deterrent that that won't happen often by the onroad guys. Nobody wants to play traffic cop night in and night out... so I can understand why we should avoid running dual purpose cars on the carpet.

I do like the idea of the other side of the hanger being used for concrete oval racing for dual purpose RC cars ... It makes a lot of sense for everyone and it'll increase club membership going forward.

We've obviously got a lot of startup expenses and need to ensure the enormous work put forth by Todd doesn't go to waste because we don't have an eye on keeping this ship afloat.

***** but lets stay focused this week and get "all hands on deck" this Wednesday for carpet setup and on-road-racing. ****

anyway.... thats my two cents ... and sorry for the long post

FYI...get food before racing.

There's a Pagliacci for pizza on the way, a 7-11 across the street, and myriad awesome restaurants/vendors in the U-dist and University Place shopping area.

I say this in the interest of not having to hear you guys bitch when I show up with a delicious Pagliacci pie. Otherwise, I'm wiping pizza grease on your sorex's.

I vote we use the other side of the hangar to set up a steel cage for salvador and magnet top... Maybe throw a few badgers in there for good measure.

Great to see that GT3/Trans-Am are invited to come play. I hope to see a bunch of Trans-Am cars tomorrow night!

Yes the cars that run on the Oval/Figure 8 would not be allowed to run on the carpet just for the reason of dirt/dust/rocks ,but it gives use to the extra space on the south side. I have nothing planed yet and I will just run 17.5 4wd on the Carpet. I am still working on a set of rules for the Oval (can't be to fast because of the dusty track). The Figure 8 class will be any 4wd chassis with 4 cell (No LiPo) 17.5/Stock motors only (This is for safety reasons).
I will do some testing and see what works on the other side before I make any decisions on using the south side.

'Badgers? We don't need no stinkin' badgers ! (sic)

Steel cage + magnet top... it seems like an unfair advantage but probably the only way Sal would have a chance. Still, I'll do it for the club if needed

See ya'll tomorrow.
