Flashlight car sounds like a demeaning term which is meant to be sarcastic and cause people to want to fight. Outside perspective. Nitro racing is not dead but turnouts have been way lower than electric. They at both super fun and usually e buggy turnouts on nitro days are pretty low. Last year during the NorCal/delta series there was e buggy and 4x4 sc races so just have electric pit for each other and nitro guys pit for nitro. That way you race and turn marshal the equal amount of time.

Flashlight is an electric car, I think. It took me a second to figure that one out, too. A flashlight takes batteries, an electric SCT or buggy takes batteries... lol

Okay, let me ask them again...

1. Why do the nitro guys get 30 minute mains?

2. Do they have to stop and refuel during the race?

3. How much are nitro entry fees?

The two kinds of cars can exist, just like SCT and buggies do. With that said, it doesn't seem fair that we pay the same amount for entry fees (if that's true), yet I race less and corner marshal more. It doesn't make sense, that's why I was asking questions. To get to the truth. I don't race there on Saturday's, so I won't have an opportunity to speak with any of the nitro guys, otherwise I would.

1. There was no attack in my post merely a huge thank you to norcal for the awesome track. If you took it personal then it's just that.

2. I did not see a question.

3. The push is defiantly coming from the electric side. I have several electric cars and I like them. I do agree cohesion is necessary. If you would like to know more about nitro come talk to me or any of the nitro guys as we all are easy to talk to and will go out of our way to further the hobby. So lets work together.

lol... What do you think I'm trying to accomplish?

I know nothing about the nitro class and don't know anybody that races in that class. That's why I'm asking questions. If you want to help the nitro class, answer the questions and stop attacking people. I have raced electric SCT for a year and promised myself that I would never get a buggy. Sure enough, I drove one last week and bought one this week. Convert people to nitro, don't push them away.

Sometimes what you are trying to accomplish and what you actually accomplish do not line up. And pointing the finger in the opposite direction is worthless.

I'm not trying to create or increase any tension between the electric and nitro guys, but comments like that do. I simply asked a few questions. Based on what little I currently know about the nitro class, the math doesn't add up, so I just wanted to clarify a few things, not kill the class. Think about it, if you pay $20 to race and I pay $20 to race, then why should you get to race more than me?

Chuck, chris sounds like you need a nitro car. A big thanks to all at NorCal for providing and maintaining a facility that gives us a place to race. Is very simple without the racer support the track dies, increasing the tension between the classes can only further drgrade the hobby and eventually leave us in an empty field. Again thanks.

Why do the nitro guys get 30 minute mains? Don't they have to stop and add fuel at least once during the race to make this happen? It's like an electric car switching batteries in the middle so they can continue to race. Are the nitro guys paying more entry fees? Sorry for all of the questions. I'm relatively new to this and I've always wondered these things. And I agree with Chris, I don't think it's fair to have to corner marshal for even one 30 minute main, let alone two.

The track was pretty good today, but we did have to water every 2-3 heats. Eric, Jon, Lance, Huse, Hemmingway and a few others pitched in and it was fine.

I was told that the track WILL be resurfaced and sugared SOON.

BTW: Marshalling TWO 30 minute 1/8 mains was, to put it nicely, less than desirable . I hope that if nitro is going to be run with electric in the future that the electric guys will get equal run time ie triple 10 minute A mains. It only seems fair to me.

All the track needs is to be resurfaced, put a little sugar in it, and ran dry. Keeping a teack wet and consistant is very hard for 1:10 racing outdoor. It doesn't even need a lot, and will help the track from breaking up.

lol, I miss this so much. It's only April. Ive only known him a short time, but lol at thinking KJ won't have the track tip-top.

I'm going to try and get out soon...miss it so much. Work got crazy and then I just bought a house this past month, so time and funds are short, but soon soon.

I've been wanting to get down there and bug KJ for some track tips but didn't even realize he was in short supply and working on the stadium. I have 2000 sq. ft on the side of my house crying to me to have a practice track built on it, but now I'm just going to steal Biners tips below. :-). Maybe I'll make a thread on the new site forum with the dimensions and bug for some layout help. I have the space cleared of weeds but haven't figured out if I need to till it or looked into getting some dirt to build up the layout.

Anyway, rambling....hope to be out soon to say hi and get dirty soon.

I agree ABR. Have the 1/10 scale race indoors and the 1/8 scale outdoors until things can be sorted out

OR

Tell Kevin that his other job of being a contractor for the new stadium is not as important and come and build us a track!

OR

Arm wrestling tournament to see who will have to help Lance and Jon

OR

Find other things to do until then- I need some landscaping and painting some at my house, my team room cleaned, my weightrrom painted, some storage racks built LOL

Folks are going to complain (see folks on the Delta threads) but I am sure if we showed up to help when we can, it would be easier to accommodate us. Sorry 20 bucks dont help as much as you think. I would hate to see this track go away and some of us have nothing to do (That would suck !!!)

Lets work together to help Kevin and the crew out!!
