Fun day for sure.It made up for the offroad being down for the count yesterday.No worries,we will be back in Business this coming weekend! Joseph Yau.....You are my Hero! Great run in quals and the main.You held me,Martin,Mini,Gowens,Ling and your Homies off in the main and won in style.You deserve it my friend.Fun to be back on the track today.Been awhile.should be a fun season.

RCGT was very cool to watch.Yeah the tires work good.Yes the 17.5 are fast enough to keep this class interesting.But we have made a decision to end up running the D spec X patterns only at Norcal.Other venues will have to make this call.I think for the sake of making the class economical in the sense of taking tires into consideration,and what we have observed from the 8 guys running today,making the D compound  the only tire allowed is a good thing.The D compounds work just fine at Norcal.They will wear better too.Another thing we have observed and that was brought up was the use of the new generation of speed controls.I think the use of the Tekin RS/RS pro and the LRP SPX in this class is not a great way to start here.Most everyone has an older generation LRP,NOVAK,etc lying around. So please take this into consideration when building up your RCGT cars.Did I already mention,these cars look way too cool dicing!

Last it was nice to see people hang out and practice after racing and really having fun.Great turnout for the opener.Hey the WGT cars were even hooked up!What can you say.Thanks to Kevin and Eric for the layout.SICK! See you all in 2!

It was good to see all the sedan guys today! Many guys I haven't seen in 4 months! The new layout feels like a roller coaster. Jelich went koo koo for carousels. The S turn in front of the drivers stand is the best section I have driven in awhile. On-road guys should be very thankful for the nice tracks we have access to in our area. Sedan racing is going to be strong in 09 some come on out and have some fun. Mod sedan is the "let's seperate the elite from the men" class. I forgot how quick and precise you have to wheel in Mod WOWSurprised  Defiently started getting my rythm back in the main. Kev, I will try to give you a better run next time out and start pushing you harder for your preperation.....

Kevin & Crew- You guys did an AWESOME job!!! Got my asphalt blood running again. The design was very nice & the bender boards were very car friendly. Can't wait to run again!!! If this does not bring the REEDY Race or the KO RACE or the TAMIYA race out at NORCAL...they are out of their minds!!! Had lots of fun today.

Bill, we will make sure to spray a little wider next times in the areas you mentioned.

Well it looks like onroad is alive and well in The Bay Area. We had a great turnout and great response to the new track. Wait till the green infield gets done and we recess the timing loop. Then it will be perfect.

Track records have been logged and put on the board. Next race lets see if they fall.

Also the onroad track is now open everyday for electric and Nitro practice.

Bill, we will make sure to spray a little wider next times in the areas you mentioned.

Kevin's bender board track barriers are the best yet.  I hit a few times with no damage; except to my ego... 

Lots of racers showed today; so, we are off to a nice start.  Would have appreciated the lanes being sprayed a little wider...for my lines...

On-road layout is fast and flowing.  The track looks great.  You guys did a great job. John's car was traction rolling in front of the driver's stand.  Wish I could be there Sunday.

Like Kevin says below...Tonight is the Daylight Savings Time change; so, don't forget to advance your clocks.  Or, you will be an hour late tomorrow.

Got in a few laps on the new asphalt track setup.  It is very friendly with its new bender boards.  Kewl!

No worries Art.You should have tried it after we sprayed.I guarantee you have never experienced anything like it with that much bite.

Guys,the track flows,its car friendly,lots of places to pass,its unlike other layouts run we have run before.Bring your big gears.You will need them in the Spec classes.My car was 3 teeth undergeared in comparison to what I have gear in the past.RCGT tires are dialed.Gary's car with the D compound is dialed.Weather will be dialed.Track should be good to go tomorrow.See you all in the morning and make sure to set your clocks forward!!!!!!!!!!!

Onroad Asphault track is done, sprayed and ready for tomorrow. I know you all will be impressed with the looks. Come out and have fun. The track has not one square edge and flows really well. Very car friendly and fast.
