Wow, It looks like everyone found this thread at once...

Some of you guys are down near Lycoming county where are the others from?

We are thinking on having a repeated five week trophy series is that something you guys would drive up for?

What days and night(during the week) work best for you guys?

I have the heat on and waiting patiently to get the track ready...clay basically sucks almost always(moving it, laying it, tilling it, rolling it) except for when your driving on it and maintenance.

We pretty much all know eachother and or race with eachother on a regular basis.
im looking forward to racing there.
i'd be open to pretty much any weeknight other then fri night, as myself and alot of other locals go down and race at Richfield raceway.
alot of guys race at bumps and jumps on sundays.
as you can see, traveling for most of us regular rc guys isnt much of an issue. im excites that you guys are so close (closest indoor offroad to me).
look forward to meeting and racing at your facility soon!

Hey guys sorry for the couple days without posting anything. I just completed the 2011 tri-state tough mudder, if you dont know what it is youtube it...i hope you will understand the few days off. I left the track last night at midnight. I had my inlaws painting walls and pit stands while i was tilling. I have pics of both i will post as soon as i get out of my second job this am.

I know what you mean by going crazy, my ft sc10 has been sitting on my kitchen table all ready for the new ball diff to be broke in. I have a scte nib with all the fixings waiting to be put together... atleast my 2wd buggy got some love while laying this thing out.

Unknown on opening date, clay drying is slow even with a 225,000 btu heater going...i only have a small portion left to be tilled rolled, and wet. The front straight is almost dry, prolly three days away from putting in my amb loop. Woohoo.

We are close.

I-Zuk,

Im glad to hear that. We are just looking to get a good bunch of regular guys/gals to attend either weekend or weeknight race events. The more people the bigger the classes and better the competition.

Our goal is to have our surface consistant so guys can dial their set-ups in and not have to worry about dirt to wood or in consistant transitions. This mixture is a pain in the a@# but i think it will be worth it. I hate running on tracks that have huge holes week after week and never get fixed.

I hope we see you and your crew when we get up and going.

Yeah the track is coming along real nice, if the clay wasn't soaking wet when they loaded it in the tri-axle then it would be done by now. Dekar058 is killing himself everyday and night trying to get it finished. Again any questions just ask away and hope to see you all soon!
