MudFish, you mean we need to run some 12th scale Nascar Oval right? There has to be people out there that have 1/12th scale cars sitting around with no purpose. Slap a Nascar body on it and watch it soar. Very fast and very fun

Yeah, Sunday was fun Mudfish. It took some time for the track to come in, with the sun not braking through until the middle of the mains. Maybe there is a build up of soda on the track, maybe it needs to be wash off and start fresh. Anyway, there was some good racing even with the light turn out.

There was a lot of crashes in some of the races possibly due to the track, I myself had problems with the Bomber's tires hooking up. Hopefully it will be better next race. That will give use something to talk about at the meeting.

Well, see you at the meeting, or at the next race. Have fun and keep racing.


Gordon.

Ok, I have run the SK car with rubber tired up at P1 hobbies. The truck times are around ten seconds, and the SK car with Blake at the wheel ran two tenths faster per lap. Consistent nine eights and nine nines, with a little rubbing of the left rear tire on the chassis. A small fix, no problem. If SK class is popular now, it will be even better with rubber tires.

I am running three classes on Sunday, I have my Bomber, my Mini, and my USGT. The featured race is the two drivers and one car I believe, are their teams already formed or will this happen the day of the race?

Hope to see a good turn out for this race, I don't know if this race Novice race for free or not, but you can check the ground pounders Web site. So, get ready for some fun the temp looks to be mid eighties, so dress appropriately and bring your canopies for shade. 

See you on Sunday. 


Gordon.

OK, a week from this Sunday is the Ground Pounders race. I have a SK car that I am going to run in practice with rubber tires so that you who have SK cars can see the difference in the tires. 

I am going to run the Bomber class, as well as the Mini class, and also the USGT class. Matt, if you want to run your car that weekend, I will announce some of the races for the club.

See you on race day.



Gordon.
