Best F1 Tires for our track?
Mike pointed you to the tire answer, also, you can ask more F1-specific questions here: http://www.rctech.net/forum/electric...-whatever.html

I'm actually in the process of finishing up my first F1 car as well, and all the guys here have been super helpful in giving me a crash course in these things. The F1 turnout on Saturdays is really good, so bring your car and you can get plenty of help. If you show up at our next Saturday race, look for a guy with a yellow F1 and a blue Scale Spec, that would be me

Default New H30 Track!

The new Hangar 30 track is built! Thank these guys for their hard work tonight and over the past few weeks.



We've been beavering away pre-fabricating parts, and tonight we got in and got 'r done. Alex's drivers stand/pipe cart/carpet cart is genius. His best work yet, and that's saying something!



The layout is a Bodine/Knudtson special, and it is supershithotdialed straight out of the box.

I have YouTube vids processing right now. I'll post in a few minutes.

We're racing tomorrow night!

Do you have a "before" picture of your driver stand/carpet holder .
As we see it here once the layout is down. What does it look like before that?

Mike, the drivers stand was fab'ed from raw material. The building is decommissioned hangar that just went through extensive seismic, lighting, heat and some structural. This place is popular in the parks dept!

I have to say, I have never been involved with a club that has taken the initiative to build a second track, prefab all the parts off site, assemble at the location.... and make it happen. I felt like we were on a pro-level contractor team hired to put on "the big race". That said, this did not just pop up overnite! What you see is months of planning and preparation. And it showed!

Doors open at 5p. Don't screw around, you will want to get some track time.

Same drill: come grab a table and chairs, pit mat required, have some fun, $10/class. Lets see how we do on our opener!

Brian

I think Hanulec was asking for a pic of the stuff when it's in storage mode.

Autobots, transform!
