I appreciate the honest response. Unfortunately, I can't race on Sundays, sell my stuff for now, but look forward to racing again in the future though!

if you PM Tempest2000 the track owner he should be able to answer all your questions. he works 2 other jobs and really is not in a position to be on the phone. otherwise I can answer most questions even though I'm just the track announcer and web dude

Default Electric Truck Set up

Hey guys just wanted to say thanks for the great race in DEC. Team Reject traveled a couple of miles to get there but we had a blast. We are looking forward to coming back in Jan. I would like to thank everyone that helped me get my B4 set-up. It had been since 1994 since i ran 2 wheel drive off-road. I have alot to catch up on. My brother drives a T4 and I was wondering if anyone could help me with the set-up on it?

Again Thanks for running such a great track we will make the 320 mile round trip again. It was one of the best races i have ever been to.

Jim Bell

Default Thunder RC Nashville, TN Indoor Winter Blast CASH PAYOUT Feb. 23rd

Last time we had a big race like this in december we had over 100
entries come out and take home some money...

I'll be adding more details as I get them ironed out. In addition I
will add $1 per entry in each class to the winners cash payout. so if
you have 25 8th buggies the winner will get an extra $25 for the win
on top of the regular payout.

We will also be changing the main order like some of you have
suggested run the d's all nitro classes, c's all nitro classes, b's
all nitro classes, then a's of each nitro class. Electric will still
be run first that part won't change.

we will try and get an air horn for the start of the mains so there is
less confusion and we'll use it at 5 min intervals so you guys can
know approx. what time you are into the race.

We will be having a friday night warm up race just like last time for
those that want it. $10 entry 2 heats and a main. we got done at
midnight or so last time.

here are some details below that we have so far.

Open at 7am
Racing at 11am
entries close at 10am
3 heats and mains 1st
entry
$30 Nitro classes 50% payback
$25 Electric classes 40% payback
$20 Sportsman 25% payback

Pay out to top 5 each class
1st 40%
2nd 25%
3rd 15%
4th 12%
5th 8%

(Nitro classes)
8th Buggy
Truggy
10th Gas Truck
CRT .5

(Electric classes)
Open 2wd Truck
19 2wd Buggy (10.5 brushless or 19 brushed)
Mod 4wd Buggy

http://thunder.rc50.com

I would just like to remind all the nitro people that we lock 6 in the 8th classes and 8 in the 10th classes and bump 2. this is nitro only no bumps in electric. we ARE running IFMAR STARTS in the QUALIFING which means that you are on your own clock so when the buzzer goes off you don't all go at once. you go one at a time. first round in the 12345 order that is on the heat sheet then in a 54321 order, and for the third round as you qualified in the heat resort. YOU the driver need to know YOUR position that you are in and only go out in ORDER. don't screw up someone elses race. Also don't crowd the line on the qualifing start it might cause you to miss a lap and I'm not putting it back.

QUICK NOTE saturday we open at 8am start at 11am**

as for electric 8th scale... the race was posted as nitro 8th so I have to stick with what we posted.

The problem is regardless of whether its faster or not if an electric 8th placed in the money all the nitro guys would throw a fit b/c thats not what the race info said.

me personally I want to build one myself for racing this summer I hate nitro LOL

but a money race is not the time to change the rules... I don't want to get hanged...

sorry

Michael
