2006-7 Racing @ RCH Raceway, S.Glens Falls, NY

Starting a new thread for this season.

The New carpet is all installled. Reassembly of the walls and cleanup will be done this evening, so we'll be ready to run on Saturday 9/16.

I have just spoken with a representative from CRC(the supplier of the carpet) and was told that Paragon Ground Effects is fine to use on the new carpet as is Traction Action, and Corally's Jack the Gripper.
They also informed us that the orange scented compounds from Racers Choice are VERY BAD for the carpet so they will not be used here. Fortunately it looks like the Racer's Choice compounds are no longer available.

The final decision on the 19T motor rule is to run the Komodo Dragon motors only.

Lots of guys were at the dirt race at Mike's so we just had a few trucks and a few spec stock. Sounds like most of the regulars will start showing up next week.
Track seems smooth with good bite. A couple of 19T guys that practiced Sat. afternoon were getting lots of rear bite with their old setups so were looking for a little more front bite to get them to turn.

Looks like Ken & I are going to give the SK's a try Saturday night. If anyone else has one ready to go bring them on, the more the better. :thumbsup:

I was just wondering what the rules and regulations were for spec?...What makes it a spec class? What battery/motor combination do we have to run? From what i have heard its just going to be 4 cell stock. I am real interested in getting back into pan but dont have the funds due to my 1:1 car. So this may be the best route. If not i will run trucks.
