The 2003 series finale will be at Pottbellys RC near Vineland NJ on Nov 8th starting at noon. Smooth black ozite track with wide lanes. A warm-up race was run this past weekend with nothing but good reports about the track and how the cars hooked up. :thumbsup:
Just wondering when will the ORL Clash Race be held and what will be the format this year??? During the "off-season" for the ORL?
I went to there tune up race this past weekend and was impressed with the track condition and facility for that matter. The carpet had good bite and the bumps that were there last year have been repaired making for a smooth surface. I and a few others have vowed to stop Fie's dominance at the last race of the series. We are all licking are chops after a good day of practice and racing. I wont see Arnie as Arnie, I'll see him as Fie Club Sandwich with a pickle and chips. Or maybe a Fie Hoagie and diet coke. lol I hope you enjoyed great adventure last weekend but it wont compare to the screams you'll cry at Potbellies in two weeks. :jest:
Hey give me a call when you get a chance. I need your help for the race in two weeks,,,, just kidding I actually want to talk to you about laying down that white slipper stuff in the corners like they used a the birds. I dont know what it is or where to get it etc. Thanks and I dont got to bed till 11.
The 2003 ORL Season Finale is this Saturday at Pottbelly's Raceway in Pittsgrove, NJ. Series awards will be given out and the annual Great Race Prize Give-A-Way will be happen'n.

The ORL series now has an "official" scale. This will be the only scale used for weighing cars at all the ORL races. I'll have it at the SureShot 500 at Thunder Road on Saturday.
Speaking of weight. The ORL minimum weight has been increased. This is to stay consistent with the other racing organizations, including ROAR.
1/10 scale - 40oz. w/foams, 42oz. w/caps
1/12 scale - 31oz. w/foam, 33oz. w/caps
The new series motors will be available at the end of the month. Probably the first place you will be able to get them will be at Thunder Road on the 31st (the truck race).The Sportsman Stock motors are $25. They do not have brushes & springs. (most don't use the stock ones anyway) The Super Outlaw 19t motors are $45 or $30 for just the armature. If buying just the arm, you may use your own can. Must be stand up brushes and no quad magnets. The can & endbell must be from same manufacture. The motors will then be available from the ORL web site along with several of the participating tracks.
The Pro Stock class uses any ROAR approved stock motor. Note: the new quad magnet stock motors are NOT ROAR approved so they are not allowed to be used for ORL races.
2004 Schedules and class rules will be available at the SureShot 500 race at Thunder Road on Saturday and we'll be available to answer any questions you may have concerning the 2004 season.
