Hey Ritchie,

The spec motor wars are in full fury right now, with the top companies playing a not-nice game of "catch me if you can." In the fastest cars I see a lot of R1 Wurks, Team Scream, and of course, the ultimate usual suspect, Trinity. And wouldn't you know, those are also the top of the discard pile at races with active tech. To be fair, they're not the only ones getting popped, but to be real, they lead the way.

I'm not sure if that answers your question in the way you're hoping, but those are the fast motors. Buying off the shelf, probably you'll be okay. Or to put it another way, so long as you're running a ROAR-approved motor, you'll be okay. We don't have the equipment to test stator IR with a credible degree of accuracy. You could be running a ROAR-approved motor that doesn't meet the ROAR spec, and we won't know.

FWIW, I'm running a Motiv in Stock TC this summer.

3000 sq. ft. of sod is being delivered on Wednesday. We need to roll it out.

Skip the gym and come to the track for a Seattle RC Racers crossfit session! We'll hit the glutes, low back, shoulders, and legs.
Drove by a little bit ago and its all there and ready.. Thanks for all the hard work...

As I wait for the first SeaTac race of the year, I feel like a ten-year-old kid waiting to see what's in my Christmas stocking. Saturday can't come soon enough.

Default 2018 Season Opener

Things can change in a hurry around here, we all know that, but the forecast for Saturday is looking good! I think we're going to kick off this season with a fantastic event.

Over the past weeks, both behind the scenes and at the track, we've been working to prepare for this Saturday. The results show, and I think you will all enjoy the improvements we've made.

Schedule
9-10:45 am Practice
11 am Drivers Meeting
Q1
Lunch
Q1 and Q2
Single Mains

Classes
Modified Touring
Modified 1/12th
17.5 Stock Touring
21.5 Scale Spec
21.5 F1
Euro Truck
Novice

Race Fees
$20/$10; $35 Family

Stock and Mod TC are open rubber tire. That said, we will have Team Powers 36 tires for sale. $20 per set until they're gone. One set per racer, per class, per day. They're a good tire, durable for a full day in Mod.

Let's have some fun!

You have captured my internal feelings perfectly. Sadly my external feelings (Wife, Kids, and Job AKA "Racing Sponsor") have a conflicting view of the world. My summer program has started out as expected as racing weekends will be a wash for May. But on the positive note, I'm going to be doing some mid spring testing this month during the week hoping to test-out my new 1/12 scale ride.

Default 2018 Season Opener

A satisfying start to our 2018 season! We worked hard for it this year, and I hope, think, the results showed in the improved grounds, the excellent consistent traction despite the cool day, and no more encroaching trees.

Turnout was encouraging, with 48 entries.

Huge thanks to the guys who helped shape things up. And thanks to the racers for showing up and making it all worthwhile. We have a good thing going.

I'm pretty tired. Here is the link to RCScoringPro results: http://www.rcscoringpro.com/events/5684/

Default Track prepped Saturday

The onroad track will be prepped for practice tomorrow ( Saturday the 12th ) by noon. This isnít a scheduled event, just an FYI that grip should be good this weekend unless it gets dusty.
