It has been a dream of mine to get my son out on the track. Well...after holding him at bay for a couple of years, he is finally going to get a crack at Hangar 30 racing. We will see if 6yo is too young, or if he has the patience to get around the track without tearing himself up.

He's rocking a TBO3 that we built together this past couple of weeks. We finally finished this afternoon. He picked the colors and we stickered it up together. He likes stickers.

If I seem especially frantic tomorrow, please don't hold it against me

I love a brand new car build.

Looks great. Almost matches the tomato.

Just wait till it cools off, I bet the "fall off" will be back. I am looking forward to getting back on the rug. I am also looking forward to re-entering the TC World (lets see how smooth that goes! ).

For those that remember, Behzad, Broderick, and Vern are rumored to pay us a visit tomorrow. I am sure they will be trolling for a potential racing outlet. So if you see these guys trying to talk nimh and brushed motors, don't laugh right at them, wait till they walk away.

Small world, but last years WWU Formula SAe team leader is Behzad's nephew! I was pretty shocked to learn that through Tyler haha.

With a D3, try a sliver past the second hash mark. Roll out at 85mm. Season to taste.

Thank you to everyone who came out to race the Indian Summer Indoor. 40 entries on the day, with many exciting battles on the track. From Novice to 1/12th scale, the Seattle RC Racers threw down today.

In Novice, my own son Stuart was joined by Mary and Sam, and all three showed that kids can have a blast racing carpet onroad. There were a couple of proud dads in the hangar today, and some very happy young racers.

Stock touring continues to be a pillar of our race program. After all the discussion this summer about whether to change up the class, it is clear we arrived at the best conclusion: leave it alone! Bodine is back in the electric sedan game, and he brought his best veteran's game to the rug, slotting second on the grid and then taking home the win in the main.

World GT wants to take off, I am sure of it. The cars are sooo stuck, the speed is great, and they just look like the business going around the track. We will stick with the class until it builds momentum. Bodine made a demonstration of the car's potential, and it was certainly convincing from my perspective.

Scale Spec...what to say? Probably our most essential class for nurturing new talent and giving veterans a lower stress way to play. The concourse prize still goes to Bill with his GT40. Erik did his best to take the fight to Mike, but Mike held strong and took home the win.

And then there's 1/12th scale. I'm still buzzing from the intensity of the day. So many guys are ramping up their speed and taking it to fantastic new levels. Travis, Pete, and Brian blew right through the track record and are now sitting at the 39 lap mark. Peeler nearly pulled off the unthinkable, missing 40 laps by less than a second. Where will it stop? I don't know. But these guys are bringing the heat.

A note about the results: something went awry while setting up the second round. What looks like only two rounds of qualifying was really three.

Thanks again to all who came out. Wrench on those cars, and we'll see you again on the 28th.

Wow, I wish I could have seen the 12th scale race, that looked like a good one. 20 days till my first race and Arts, so that will be a few more entries for stock touring. The battling of Cody and Art will continue

Judging by the amount of applause at the action, I think more than just the Dad's in the audience were enjoying the show.

(End of first lap, down the straight, as Erik's reeling me in with better top-end)
Me: "This is going to be a long 6 minutes."
Erik: "What do you mean?"

(At the end of the next lap, Erik passes me on the outside of the sweeper, and then I hound him through the infield, staying on his tail down the straight with a good exit from the last turn)
Erik: "You're right, this is going to be a long 6 minutes."
