Though I don't know if thats like after the race is done it creates said page. Probably would need somesort of javascript or php to be realtime. Let me email the owner...


Sorry to leave early but I have to work this AM.
RC scoring pro uses SQL for the primary database handling, and is integrated to work with LiveRC. I would think the easiest thing to do would be to create some form of LAN liverc feed that only those within the network can see.

If it helps snooping around on liverc may give you some idea how it works, I'm pretty sure liverc is written in java.

Hit up Brandon Rhode, he wrote liverc and knows the most on how to make it work with rc scoring pro.

Default New Track!

That was a long day...

What was originally envisioned as a layout change and general maintenance day became something much bigger, and ultimately more significant. It's hard enough to bring the time, tools, and materials all together at once, but when you throw in the talent and energy on display yesterday, you just have to let it rip. Some key people really got the bit between the teeth and decided that now was the moment to make it happen.

So, huge thanks to all the guys who showed up and helped us re-engineer the Hangar 30 track. We managed to make fundamental improvements to the track's construction, which will have a positive impact on how it stands up to a race night. All while maintaining the virtues of fast setup and teardown. We really stepped up the quality of our operation with yesterday's effort. Thank you!

Our first race of 2011 is next week, Wednesday the 12th. Until then, here are some pics of the work day and the finished product.

In the sprit of the on field sports reporter...

So what does this change mean for you and the hanger 30 club.

So how do you feel about the second half of the up coming season.

When you changed the track did you do it for all the little tracks

Default Old Track

Todd,

Let me know what day you would like to get the old track out of there.
If you want all the round pipe gone, I could get it with or without you having to be there.

Default new layout

Kudos to all involved. The new layout looks great. Going to be itchy for a whole week and a half now, waiting for the 12th to get here.

Don't forget there is a race up in Mt. Vernon this Saturday.

Thanks to all who showed up and put the work in. Sorry I could not make it, but the 50th birthday party for my wife went well, so I should have enough brownie points collected to allow me to run one more race night. Now to figure out what it will take for the following race...

-Alex

Reminds me of a Scene from the Movie Animal House.......Where Flounder is counseled over the damage to his older brothers Lincoln........He's handed a Sixpack and advised to "Drink Heavilly"!

Funny thing is the paper layout had a section on the south end ( Top of Todd's pic) with a doted corner. We were pushing late into the evening and had to finish it sooner then later. We would have had to take and extra hour or more making two 45deg couplers to follow the paper layout to the T. So instead an extra 90deg peace made for a easy finish to a LONG day. In the end the car will make the same arc. Set up is a few steps faster but I thought we needed dots in there for sure. Todd was 100 and 10 percent for the change... In fact I think he was the one who thought of the easy end to the late nigh!

Still might consider making two 45deg couplers to add a nice little doted section... Maybe not for the first race night but the first Saturday on the new track... Or not

Does anybody have a 1/10 touring car setup board lying around they would be willing to part with for a fair price? Wondering because I think my use of an flat-ish plastic concession table as my true surface isn't doing me too many favors.
