Default Sorry mom! ;)

It's official! Round #4 of the JBRL "N" Series has been moved from
R.P.S. to Thunder Alley. The date will remain the same (July 15) but
the race has been moved to Thunder Alley in Beaumont, CA. Please make
note of this change and we apologize for any inconvenience. R.P.S.
couldn't get things ready in time but they will be back to host a
round in 2008! Hope to see you all at Thunder Alley on July 15th!

I know this is a "G" word series announcment but we are trying to make sure we get the word out as much as possible!

Thanks!

No problem Casper. RPS is running a little behind, but I talked to Nick, and he said Tacoma Chris got things worked out, and they're back on track.

I haven't been able to watch very much of the 1/8th scale

Roar Nats, but I checked in this morning on LiveRc, and

Banzai electric driver Chris Puller was TQ for round #5 !!!!!!

I don't know how the mains are looking, if anyone wants to

post things, it's ok with me! Even though it's "g" !!

We have Puller, Curtis May, and Felles there!

Good luck guys!!!!!!!

Judi

Downtown, saw you on the LiveRc, anyone from San Diego there?

I'm not sure why it says TQ for round 5. There was no Round 5 of qualifying...

I think it was a glitch and rather Chris won the Odd 1/256 race and bumped to 1/128...

I know Felles was in the Odd 1/64 race, but I don't know if he bumped up to 1/32.

Killer89: I haven't a clue what you just said!

You must remember, I know NOTHING about the "g" racing.

Can you explain that bumping?? The "odd" thing??

Thanks,

Judi

Scott isn't here, so I can't ask him!!

Basically, instead of A,B,C, etc mains, they ran a format where the top 10 qualify for the Final automatically. Then they would have 4 more bump up.

Each race consisted of 14 drivers, 12 qualifying, 2 bump ups.

The "mains" were set up such that there were 2 semifinals, or 1/2 mains. These consisted of the drivers who qualified 11-34, plus the 2 bump ups per main (or half). Thus, because there were 2 semifinals, odd and even, there were also 2 quarterfinals (1/4), odd and even. It goes on and on in this order: final, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 1/16, 1/32, 1/64, 1/128, 1/256, etc... 2 of each (odd and even), except for the final. If you were one of the 2 bump ups, you would bump into the same half of the next highest level. example: you won 1/256 odd, you bump to 1/128 odd.

This allows people who don't qualify well but are good drivers to bump up quickly. For example, at the nats, it went all the way down to 1/1024. If Drake hadn't qualified all weekend and needed to bump to the final, he would only have to bump 10 times. Whereas in a normal style, he would have to bump 20 times... This was a BIG race

Great try Eric but mom is still confused about qual points!

Mom-- Lets save this one for another day. The gas qualifying and mains is WAY worse then any of the stuff we do for electric so lets just leave it at that!

Good idea.

Breaking News. Tomorrow I'm going to have a new computer built. They're going to build it with XP instead of Vista. From what I understand, Vista uses a lot of memory, plus I think I can load my software on XP without any problems.

Having worked with Vista and Windows XP... Get Windows XP if you want it to work and want it to be useful, get Vista if you want it too look "pritty" but actually achieve nothing and for most applications not to work.

Casper even made me a "cheat" sheet with the qual

points explained on it. I'm supposed to take it to every race.

Still don't get it, so I make Casper

and Scott explain it to me at EVERY race!!

Now the computer. This is a really sad day!

Scott says he's taking this computer out back and shoot

it with a 12 gauge! I still run Microsoft '98, I have my

original all numbers email address, 10 years about, and I still have

Compuserve 4.0, and this Hal is so old it doesn't have a

connection for DSL. The computer guy says the hard-drive is

getting ready to go because of some nasty note "Hal" keeps

sending me on a black screen. BUT, I always manage to "revive"

Hal!!!!!!!!!

So, in the next few days, I'll have a new computer.

Bitter pill to swallow!!!!!

Well congrats on the new computer. I know you will like it in time. You can make XP "look" like 98. Ask who ever you have building the computer to set it up that way so it is not too much of a shock all at once!

Hey Judi,

How are you guys doing? Wow, a new computer. Sounds like you are moving into the new century. I used to have compuserv a long time ago.

Work has been keeping me so busy I haven't even had time to keep up with all my RC friends. Right now I am writing this email from Jining China. Yep, I'm half way around the world. Darn job. The way I have it figured by the end of the year, I'll be in China twice and Germany twice. It's a good thing that I don't mind the travel too much. But, I gotta say that the German food is better than the Chinese food.

You guys take care and try and enjoy the new computer.

Gary B.
