In case any of you want to read the old thread, it's still at it's orginal location. However, you won't be able to post anything there as it's closed. I removed everything here so we could start fresh. I think the other topics can still be copied back to this thread if you want them shown. Just let me know.

As far as I know this weekend will be a track "test session". No fee to run, basically an organized practice. From what I'm told you can come and test car setups and run in some races. Again- no entry fee, but donations to the club will be accepted if you want to give one. I plan on being there sunday to dial in the suspension on my TC3 and test out the FWD conversion...

I made it over here<g>. Sorry about not making it this weekend. I really wanted to get down there and at least check out the track. My son, David, was there to represent the team and told me I would enjoy racing at your establishment.He said it was huge. Lots of pit room easy access to the drivers stand and all. John, he told me it was a really nice set up.
Nitrorod, glad you had a good time. I'll make sure I look you up in the near future down there.
I've one question, well maybe 2...My wife also drives. She's got a schumaker pro99 with a touring truck "silverado" body on it. Is that going to prevent here from running with the other TC3's and such? Also we both run the "V rage" rubber tires. Is there a class separation between rubber and foam?

Okay, keep em on the road.

wizzoOhO.....

Glad to hear David liked what he saw! Yes, we run both foam and rubber classes and the truck body will be just fine.

So, what does everybody think of the money raffle? We thought it would be great since everybody has a chance to win cash without the pressure of having to win a race to reap the rewards! Not only that, but it's yours to spend anywhere you'd like


And remember.... the more that play, means the more we'll pay!

Okay, here's the latest from today's meeting down at city hall. Attending the meeting was the city managers assistant, the manager of the zoning department, the manager of the planning committee, the manager of the inspection department, four lawyers, the buildings actual owner, the present leasers, myself, my wife, Fred and several others. The problem basically stems from the fact that we as a club of RC racers don't have a definition as to what we do in the city's charter, and their not sure how to classify us. There are many different types of use permits issued and there isn't one to define what we do.

So.... in a nutshell, it's still going to take a little more time for us to get that little piece of paper in our hands so that we as a club can be legal and within the limits of the law. This could possibly happen as early as late this week. We'll know much more after tomorrow. Many, many things are in the works, and lots of gears have gone into motion, so.. don't give up, We won't!!

Ty-Rod....

Glad to see you made it here... finally!! And about the only thing I can say about all of this bureaucratic red tape is that it'll all be worth it in the long run. Don't you agree???

Knapster.... Your so right! That's what the main problem is at this point. We don't have a classification to describe RC racing, unless we accept what somebody "downtown" decides or thinks what we should be in their mind. At this point in time, we very well may be changing at least one city charter, and Setting a new precedence is what we're in the process of achieving!
