I think we have a chance to build something really good for RC in Grand Rapids, so lets all work together on it.
Exactly what I've been talking about to everybody willing (and unwilling) to listen...

I hope we can all rally around this new opportunity and make it a great place for everyone to race.

So when do you think we can be up and running? I REALLY can't wait for some tight stock touring action. Heck with the size and normal track layout 19turn ,mod and 12 scale 19turn sounds all to good!!!! Lets get it on!!!

19t/mod touring is gonna rock on this size track
We should see if we could make it the same layout as Cleveland was last year. That would be even sweeter.

Exactly how big is this place, anyway? The way people are talking, must be a good size.
It looks to be in the neighborhood of 60'-70' X 90'-100' in the main area.

Roy,
I looked at the 415msx sheet and it very well could be a msx.The car is at kieths until this weekend.If it is a msx,why do I have a 415MS manual?I'll have to look at the car when I get it back.I owe him some money so my car is hostage until then.

I talked to Kevin Jackson(the guy I got the cars from)and he said that the one I have is definetly a 415MS and not the MSX.He would know considering he's the one who bought them new.Just thought I'd pass that to you.

The racers that have been supporting us are the same racers that will be supporting you. Only makes things better for everyone to work together.

I guarantee I will be making Jason watch the store on occasion and join in the racing as I can.

Great location in the mall, nice space. Should give the chance to actively bring new blood into the hobby.

Thanks John,
I believe making things better for everyone is a great goal.
I'd come and race with my dirt friends as well instead of just hanging out except, I haven't a buggy yet.
