Hey John G, Ron, and Chris C. Thanks for letting me try out your touring cars yesterday. I forgot how fun on-road can be. I'll brush off my TC5 and give it another try OR maybe get one of those HB Cyclones and sell my near new TC5.

What is the minimum number of entries per class on a Friday night to make a race?

I would wait for the new RP-30's. They might be good and might help alot. Its hard for you guys to throw a race and there aren't many tires that work well. Regardless of glueing up tires. We have to glue up off road tires too.....off road entries are not down.

may be some of our bay area politicians can get us some of those Ear Marks to Fund RC racing in the bay area. We could say how rc racing could lower crime in Oakland,promote Family, and create jobs. Who knows stranger things have Happened......bridge to no where. LOL

I know Ej, its unfortunate it is what it is. The Economy,gas prices,and GEORGE FREAKIN BUSH can be blamed for low turnouts everywhere.Can't wait for at least 4 more years of the same bullcrap.Bring on McCain! LOL!

racenut, not saying to go back to thursdays nights...just saying it worked better for me, but I'm only one racer.  Plus I can't make every thursday night anyway.

There is no doubting on road is down, it is what it is.  Norcal has to do what it needs to do to keep the doors open, and everyone can respect that.

Wow...7-8 racers....That sucks....Bill, i think it's time to go OFF ROAD.....The onroad track would make a great 1/8 scale off-road track.....hint , hint....

 

Everything is bigger in Texas!...except RC racing...  :(

Tires,scheduling,racer apathy,offroad,etc.whatever it is, this situation is not unique nor is it new.

With the dismal amount of racers we had last Saturday for onroad, what else can the turnout be attributed to?If Norcal went back to Thursdays would more people start showing up again?We'll lets see.I think the last Onroad Tthursday Night we had around 13 entries.I give up.

I would have loved to been out there Bill, but Friday nights just don't work for me. 

Thursdays worked much better for my schedule...but I'm just one racer.

Alot of it has to do with the days you are racing and tire availability. Like I have mentioned before, I would race On-Road on one of the weekend days and Off-Road on the other. Not sure who would run the races....thats not something I can help with given my schedule. This is just my suggestion...don't shoot me.

 

As for the tires, I am not a scientist....so I won't even attempt to get my Mr. Wizard on.

Off-Road tires are easier and cheaper to procure. Combine that with California weather and car durability and its a no brainer for the time being.

I sure hope the newest batch of RP-30s are at least comparable otherwise On-Road may be history for awhile.

I think they like racing in parking lots Bill.Maybe they should do what they did to Revelation and fill the the onroad track with dirt and have a place for offroad both day and night.Sounds like a plan.

The track and weather were absolutely purrrrrrrrfect tonight.  

Probably ran my fastest practice laps ever...Just ask Lex. 

And only 7-8 racers showed which meant no racing. 

What's up on-road racers??? 

 

Who will be the next Matt Francis, Nick Martinez, Javier Arroyo...?
