Just got back from Bradley a few Mojitos ago. Drive home was a drag, with snow/;ice etc... but the track is great! Carpet was layed down and is in perfect shape. Really came out nice. Chad has room for as many racers as we can get to show up. He is trying to come up with a schedule, when to run what, etc. Right now looks like Fri night on-road, Sat. night Off-road, an Sunday oval. Please post your preference to help determine the best schedule for the most racers.. We ran some practice races today to make sure all was working right... Track is 50' X 36' using I-lap scoring hardware and Alycat software. Track is on the second floor, elevator available. No shortage of food nearby, with lots of Motels too. I only ran the Vendetta today, and there was NO sign of carpet fuzz build up. Keep checking here for more details...

Racing is officialy underway at C&R!! Great time yesterday in Bradley. We had 2 heats of 1/18 Short Course and one heat of open class 1/18 buggy/truck.
Shop owner Chad, pulled of the #1 qual spot for SC, and Ron T. got the pole for open buggy.
Axle got the bump from the B-Main to the A.... Newcomer to R/C racing, Alex (not to be confused with Axle) Takes the win in the A-Main!!
Ron got the win in open buggy, with Jake and Anthony 2nd and 3rd respectively. Jake and Anthony still trying to get up to speed after a long lay-off, not having raced since the closure of Duneland Hobbies & Raceway..

Several others stopped by to get a glimpse of the action and contemplate what classes they might want to participate in. Axle picked up a new BRP 1/18 pan car and had it out for a shake-down run. He really looked good on his 2nd run.

I'd like to come out and check out your new track. Sounds great. This weekend I'm booked though........we are having our last 1/18th race for this indoor season at Toledo. I'm an OnRoad and Oval guy. From what Ron (RATfactor) told me, sounds like a great facility. Looking forward coming out sometime with my 1/18 rides!! ........ BRP pancar, BRP Oval, M18Pro, 18R w/foam. I'll coordinate with Ron for a trip out to your track sometime soon. Good luck with your new track.

4 PM Sat. ? COOL! I know that will be much better for those that have a ways to drive and/or in a different time zone (like much of IN.).
