We allow them and if there is a small turnout we usually run them with the truck class.

Are you coming back out?

Quals are still 5 minutes.Mains are 7 minutes for 1/8.I am considering 10 minute mains though.

Try to remember,we average about 11-13 heats on a Saturday for offroad.Not heats with 5 guys mind you.Stacked heats.We stack them to become more efficient instead of running 22 heats like some places down in Socal do to make it look like there are more people then there really is.If we put all heats and mains at 6 minutes,we extend the day out 40 minutes.Thats taking into considerations alot of things.Its a tough call for me because I know people want that extra minute,but it is what it is.I will try and extend the time in the near future but that will require help from the racers and everyone working to keep a time line.

For Onroad, its been 6 minutes for 13.5 class.Mod is still 5 minutes. We have reduced offroad to 5 minutes in order to shave time on the program in offroad,but will consider changing this soon.

I also am considering the newer and less experience guys.6 minutes is an eternity for even the expert guys.This is something I will take up in the drivers meeting next time we race both onroad and offroad.

hmmm....6 mins for mod on-road is hard on batteries.  Not sure if 4600 cells can last that long for those who run 5 cell.

Ron,

With the exception of MOD, the on-road guys have been running 6 minutes for all quals and mains since the asphalt track reopened. Not too sure about the off-road situation, but I imagine it would be the same since everyone gets like half an hour of run time with their lipos anyway.

 

99% of the time, smooth equals fast.

John, do you guys plan on changing the electric heats and mains (on and off-road) to 6 minutes?  Just curious since ROAR made the change in their rule book for 2009.

Awesome racing yesterday guys.  Great battles in all classes, and good to see turnouts in nitro and RCGT growing.  After the mains EH and the rockys took some test laps with a few TC's, so I wouldn't be surprised if you see them running sedan pretty soon.

And thank you Jeff Hastings for loaning me a decent battery

Thanks for all that came out today. Lots of entries and lots of fun.

Sorry for the computer issues in the mains. The race results couldnt be posted for two mains. This will be corrected by next race. unfortunately some mains couldnt be posted.

The 13.5 A main looked like the A main at a Nationals. That was the most exciting racing ive seen. The track is producing some great side by side racing.

Lex, Thanks for announcing. Your great to have around and thanks for helping out the other racers. See you on the track soon.

Kevin Woods great race to the front and win. You played it smart.

Woods, Martin, Arluck, Vik, Juan and Hicks awesome battle for the first four minutes.

Hats off to Hicks for dealing with his bad luck.

We had 10 gas signups as well and congrats to Alan on the win after 15 minutes. Can you post your setup?

RCGT is super even and looking is a great class for spec racing and side by side racing. George was coming for you Arluck.
