Hello everyone,

In the event that it rains on Sunday we will run the race the following Sunday. Be noted; we will not be able to provide power for the rescheduled event.

How will you determine the race will be postponed and when will the racers be informed? Thanks.

We will look at the weather on a daily basis. If the forecast is 90% chance by Saturday morning we will email everyone Saturday late morning of the postponement. If it's only a 20% chance of rain we will be try and hold the race and play it by ear.
We will decide by Wednesday morning if we are going to cancel the expensive generator I rent to supply power to the entire track. We will notify everyone who has registered online about the power situation by Wednesday late morning. If we cancel the power please be prepared to supply your own. Most of you have some kind of portable genie. The track volunteers do have one that 50 of you can tap into with no problem. Between the two we should have plenty of power for all.
Tables and chairs will be available regardless of the rain situation.

I'll be praying to the RC gods for rain-free racing on Sunday. It's a long way to travel (Seattle) for a rainout, we have enough of those here.

Default FF-03 with SPEC-R gear diff

Does anyone here have a good starting point for the diff lube to use in the FF-03 with a Spec-R gear diff. My son's car is equipped with such, but I don't know what the oil viscosity is. The problem is that in 180 turns, the car breaks traction super easy. I think the diff is too heavy and not allowing adequate diff action. Any advice is appreciated, especially good advice that has produced good results and better lap times.

Thanks gents,

EB R

Hello everyone,

Everyone that has pre-registered will be getting an email about this weekend, but I will also post information here.
We have cancelled the $2,000 dollar generator rental due to the possibility of rain. If you have a portable generator please bring it. We also have a club generator that can power most people if you don't have a buddy willing to share power. I have a Honda to run the races and PA, so we are covered there. Tables and chairs will be on site despite the threat of rain.
As of this morning the entries look like this:
89 Racers
138 Entries
GT-1: 18
GT-2: 23
GT-3: 16
FWD: 9
Mini: 26
Mini PRO: 15
GT Novice Spec: 9
F-1: 19
1/12 GT: 3
