Well Ididn'tget to race last friday night- brought everything to the track except the car.I realized that about two miles from the track. I did however pickup one of the new Jags (GT) and took it home to work on it. Got to the track yesterday evening(monday) and tried it out. Jason was there and showed me a different idea with the magnets and now the car is faster.It's still got some work but it's 95% done. See ya'll at the track.

Just to let everybody know, we are in the planning stages of doing and enduro race. 4 hours will be the first.

Now here are some of the ideas we have had:
1. Everybody will qualify. (Now as for the car and so on this has TBD.)
Does everybody run thier car or does the shop supply the car? Please before any
Comments read this: The shop will supply the 4 or 5 cars for the teams racing. We
are looking at the types and availabilty of the cars now. But the cars must have
headlights and tail lights. So the shop is looking, ok?

2. The control for this race will what is provided by the shop. Meaning no DF or any
other. (case closed).

3 After all qualifing is done the top 4 qualifiers we be the team "captains". Now here
in lies a problem do we let the captains pick their next 2 drivers or does the shop
assign them? Meaning team 1 would get drivers 5 and 9? Your thoughts on this?

4 Car assignment after all qualifing is done, the team captain picks their car from a
blind draw. The reason being, the shop is providing the cars and such. After the
cars are chosen, the teams will then chose their spare motors from 2 more additional
blind draws? After all cars and motors are chosen, the team will have about 1 hour
to set up and practice with the cars of their chosing. Does this sound fair enough
everybody?

5 Only work to be done on the cars is during green flag racing, NO EXCEPTIONS. (if
there are 5 teams. Team number 5 or who ever is sitting out the car will be
impounded. NO EXCEPTIONS.

6 Drivers will race on each lane for 20 minutes during 4 hours. Should there be a
minimum or maximum time for the drivers? Do you let your best driver race most of
most of the race?

Any thoughts you have share them, I would like to make this a positive thing, ok?

Henry

Let me suggest the Scaley Aston Martin DBR9, Scaley 911 GT3R, Scaley Nissan Skyline… all of those would make good choices. The Aston Martin probably being the most durable of the group. If the shop’s supplying the cars, they should all be identical, so the shop might think of having Speedy take identical cars and paint them in different liveries.

This sounds great. It keeps everybody even.

Just make sure that each team has at least of the new drivers, so that the beginning drivers have a chance. You might trying placing the fastest with the slowest (except this might cause sandbagging), or you can base it on the average of the Friday night race results (which would probably be the better idea).

The only thing I would change on this would be to give them a little more time, so that they can learn to work together. Possibly an hour and a half to two hours.

Perfect!

No driver should be allowed to race more than half, and all drivers should get at least 20 minutes on the track.

Hopefully this race will get a good turnout, and bring in some of the drivers that haven’t been showing up.

Those look like the rules you were discussing with us a couple of months ago. Just a couple of quick notes to add in...

-If you go with the Scaley 911's, remember to make sure they're all the same chassis. Last I recall, the shop had both types of chassis in stock. I also remember a lot of people saw them as being an ideal car, though I like the Aston Martin more because it's less likely to break and a lot more forgiving, which makes it ideal for the wide range of experience levels.

-Ohmage for the rented controllers should probably be 25, like the Boggy Creek race.

-Will you also be supplying the equipment to work on the cars? Basically, oil, grease, com drops, etc.? Not sure if any particular brand gives an advantage or not.

-How will qualifying be handled? Will there be a qualifying car, or set of cars? If so, preferably it'd be at least two cars, similar to the race cars. I say at least two because the tires and motor could wind down with too much running straight, so having extras will allow people to use a relatively fresh car. There's still the chance someone will get the car when it's "hot", but that simulates an actual racer hitting the track while it's in ideal conditions and getting a boost.

-How will you determine how many teams to make? And then, how do you do the rotation? Each team should have equal track time - four hours. So do you keep rotating until every team has had twelve 20-minute runs on the track (three per lane)? In other words... is it a 4-hour event, or four hours *per team*?

I think it could be interesting to see how teams handle the race. Some races have preferred lanes. Joey had yellow lane. Wendell has orange lane. Marty's got blue lane. So, for example, if I were on a team with Wendell and Marty, I'd let Wendell do the orange lane runs, and Marty head out for the blue lane runs - specialist racers just like sports teams have specialists (road racer specialists, coverage linebackers, etc.).

Adding some missing pieces to the convo...

Hank80 said:
I was glad to see the positive feedback!

Personal, I dont think there is an advantage. We just want everybody to use what the shop is going to provide. We think by doing it this way it will bring the a level field concerning the controllers. BUT...
In a future enduro, we might allow them. But that might be in the future. On the other hand we might just stay with this format.

As for the cars, we are looking at maybe a SCX type of lemans or Scaley cars. I think the Porsche 911 had 2 different chassis pans. One with 2 screws and one with 4 screws.

We just want to try and control everything that takes place concerning cars, motors, and handles.

More or less like a full counter part! But like I said this is still in the early planning stages.

Any more ideas, from you or your Dad, please send them along.

The two Porsches were actually 2 and 3 screws, which is kind of annoying, as it meant older bodies (like the model kit and the Yankees Porsche) aren't able to be put on the newer chassis. Worse, you can't use the same setup... been there, tried that, nearly cried with the result.

I think it might be best to do a full control, really. It means no one can say there's an advantage, perceived or real.

Any more ideas, I'm sure we'll send them along, as always.
