Hey Garrett, I think Todd just called you a mouth brooder.

Default Site Stats

Going through the website and thought I'd share some data.

Our top ten click-throughs over the past year.

1. Media files (results, homepage vid, etc.): 1,435
2. schmidtsrcraceway: 407
3. area52rc: 356
4. norarcoval: 340
5. tacomarc: 300
6. fasttraxnw: 268
7. galaxyhobby: 266
8. fourseasonsracing: 248
9. bremertonrc: 170
10. roarracing: 151

Not only is the site a resource for the club, but it would seem the public is finding our Local Tracks tab a big help as well.

I think Phil discovered another torture method when he asked to run a few laps with my F1 car during warmups for the Main and managed to center punch the round plastic piece in front of the drivers stand and send the car cartwheeling end over end.

The car was fine, however my shorts were a bit streaked after the experience. Phil, let me know when I can borrow your Scale Spec car for a few laps, preferably before the Main.

Those aren't skid marks, those are winning streaks!

That entry list isn't much to go by... Most are heading down. Should be decent and I would recommend you heading south too!

Default Xray T3'12 Chassis Swap!

Hi guys,

Just wanted to share my latest project; I thought you might find it interesting. A while ago, I purchased the T3MX chassis by Smokem Racing:

http://www.smokem-racing.com/T3MX.html

I was intrigued by the shape, plus it's about as thin as the T4 chassis (the T4 is 2.2mm, Smokem is 2.25mm).

Anyway, the installation is going well. We'll see how it performs at the next race!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful day!

Peace,
Sam

Check out pictures here (and feel free to add me as a Facebook friend):

Better watch out on the next F1 main, Massa might go all "Romain Grosjean" all over you in the first corner...

I'd love for the Seattle RC Racers to host Regional's. Getting the time in the gym is a problem. Its being worked on possibly though.
