I have a battery similar to Boyle's. Mine is 3 years old and still going strong. I got mine at batteries plus. Definitely worth the investment if you like to race outdoors.
Yeah Mike, that's where I purchased mine as well. Mine is the Werker 35J battery. They have stopped making the Werker line of batteries. It was replaced by the Duracell version. It's the exact same battery with a Duracell sticker on it. And of course it's $7 more than the Werker...cause ya know...those labels cost money...SMH

I'm shooting for July 9 for a first race, Matt. We're waiting on some materials which are taking forever and a day.

Plus, too much day job type work and not enough race track work!

But, I'm holding on as hard as I can to that July 9 date. I'm not slipping the schedule just yet.

Any word on what the spec tires will be for the asphalt track? Thinking of running stock TC and/or the GT class.

Will the track be all done by father's day? Just curious cause I might have a chance to get up there that sunday and run some laps but if the track is not complete I can also wait untill it is all done and save the gas money.

I'm hoping like heck to get the corners done by Father's Day. I feel comfortable at this time blaming Jake for this delay.

J/K. Sort of.

J/K. It's all good.

Mostly.

Fill dirt continues to arrive for the perimeter, and we are getting close to putting in the permanent drivers stand platform.

The infield paint is on hand and waiting for the apexes to go down. After that, perimeter pipe and selective safety pipe in the infield. After that, it's race central stuff, but that has less to do with anyone else.

That track runs sooo good. Jake and I were down there last night and traction was relatively good for no soda pop. Really looking forward to opening that puppy up. Great job to everyone that played a part in this. Do I smell a national level event in our future? Great location for it.

Question: When putting a rear belt on your car, do the teeth on the belt face the diff or the sky?

Default IROCC Speed Weekend 2016

Don't mean to throw a monkey wrench into things, but our friends Blake, Craig, Daryl and their crew have the IROCC Speed Weekend 2016 July 9-10.

Just an FYI, as I understand how hard the scheduling gets with all the groups running.

Glad to hear your track is coming along, I'll have to give it a run

Summer Speed Weekend in Victoria is a good race. I've gone three times. It's been on the 4th of July weekend the past couple years, so I missed them. I'd like to get back, for sure.

But you're right, John, between TZGP, 4th of July weekend, IROCC, and TCS, that leaves little room at the peak of summer for our program. I'm sure you feel the same bind with RRR.

in the world of outdoor on-road racing, specifically at Seatac Raceway, is there a preference between the tread or slick D compound tires for scale spec??

The best tires for Scale Spec indoor or Outdoor are the Gravity racing USGT tires. They are faster and last longer than the HPI tires. If you do use the HPI tires... either Vintage treaded D compound tires or the X patterns are preferred over the HPI slicks... the slicks dont work well.

Racers are getting almost a full season on one set of the USGT tires on carpet and they hook up and hold up very well on asphalt.
