I taked things seriously to have fun...but never wanted to get too upset over little things that goes wrong...or someone get taking out....there's too many races to come...

The best fun part of this hobby is to help new racers get better and faster..

Did I get DQ last wed in the Stock Spec?

Tracy, if you were faster then the leader, then there should not have been a call, the leader should have enough sence to let you go and let you get your lap back and go on about holding onto first and fending off second. You can call it stress relief or just for fun or whatever but its still a race.

Maybell has it right.

Respect is better then victory. I respect what Tracy did.

There was one right call to make, Kody and Tracy made it! In no form of racing does a lapper come back up on the leader at the end of the race to battle for his lap back. Youve gone a lap down for a reason and yes you may be faster for a few laps after you've clung on to the lead pack your a lap down with 1 minute to go and reality is your not makin up that time sit back finish the race and get um next time. Look at your times and try to have a cleaner first part of your race and you'll be in that lead pack with the race nearing end. Job well done Tracy/Kody


Garrett-Great inspirational words!

On this layout (no sweeper), the cars are not "Traction Rolling". So I'd start around 54mm or so.........

Maybe later on, you might get "Slapped", or even "Mastered" !

Maybell has it right.
Maybell desribed "his" strategy in this situation, which is his "choice". He is opting not to race with a with a back marker, and preserve his gains. Sound strategy...if he does not move over, I have 2 choices, wait patiently for a clear opurtunity to pass (he crashes out on his own) or race him for a pass.
Are you saying that it is "race on" with the leader regardless of how far back I am? ;That I could potentially just badger the leader without even wanting to pass, just to race him for a while? Or have a RD see what's going on, and make a call for the benefit of the race between 1st and 2nd.

And I didn't call it anything really, just going over a race scenario that may not be discussed that often. More than just fun though, I actually call it a straight shot of Adrenalin whenever I get done with 12th scale main!

Hey Franko,

I was updating the past three races' results on the website and posted your record from the 11th, 23/6:10, instead of the last race, 24/6:10. I don't know why. Purely my mistake. Thanks for catching it
