Theoretically, one blinky and one open boosted.

However, I am very glad not to know what you are talking about.

no, its a roar race, you have to be a us resident, or something like that. for me it was the part of the country it was in.

The great Barry Baker was chatting on Live RC and said something about the best paved nationals were on parking lot tracks where no one would have an advantage... how sweet would it be to drop down a track right in downtown Seattle or Bellevue, some yuppie place and have a national or even bigger event..

Hey Hey, no fair !!! You've got a head start due to inside information.
I say ALL members of the rules committee gets a stop and go penalty the first race of the season. Yep, and I think Wes gets a full lap deduction for liking pan cars a little too much but mostly because he was the first to prematurely blabber the rules on Facebook!

Default Club Meeting

The start of the indoor season is less than a month away. It's time for a club meeting.

Wednesday, August 29
7pm
Upper Conference Room
Hangar 30
Magnuson Park


This conference room is through the front door of the Hangar 30 building (the one with the Parks & Rec awning to the right of the main hangar on the south side) and up the stairs.

I'm away from my computer right now, but some of the main agenda items include:

Asset and Treasurer Report.
Comp Committee Report.
Review of Community Center Race Program.
Emerald City Classic report.
Discussion of offroad race program at SeaTac for next season.
Updates and discussion of onroad tracks in the SeaTac and Seattle parks.

There are other items, but those are some of the major items on which I'd like to spend some time. These meetings are important for the club, so please try to be there if you are able.

I'm not going to make the club meeting this week due to conflicting vacation plans, but I spent all weekend getting my Stock TC ride cleaned-up and upgraded. I added the RSD6 chassis conversion which is super sweet - the steering is a big improvement over the AE setup. I figured I could use all the help I could get, so the more handling upgrades the better.

I also went for a special paint scheme for good luck, channeling the spirit of a certain Tame Racing Driver. I also let my wife help with the decals after she'd had a few drinks...her contribution is on the back of the wing.

Next up is my upgraded Scale Spec entry for the season....can't wait to hit the track on the 15th!

Someone- wee need some Hangar 30/SRCR swag

Everyone- Bremerton RC Raceway is having there first official Sunday race on Sept 9th.. ( 9am open practice, racing at 12:30).. Super smooth surface with great traction is begging for some pan car action.. They will have 17.5 TC and VTA along with, I am hoping, H30 Rules- Stock 1/12 and WGT. Supposed to be a great track and super smooth...

See you guys at the meeting.. I am sure Todd is having too much fun all alone at the Paved Nats to post exact meeting details.. man sucks only recognizing a handful of names at a national event..

AE's biggest fan,
Kyle
