Additions...

We are also installing a ceiling fan to blow the heat down from the ceiling and hanging a monitor in front of our drivers area for lap and position updates.
our track isnt open to the public just about 6 or 7 of us (5 regular) yet it is nicer than ( or at least as nice as) most organised tracks.

We also have an outdoor track with a drivers stand 7' high with lights for night running. We run short course 4x4's (Losi Assoc, and Slash) in the summer.
heres a pic.



this from our drivers stand at nite. Wile E Coyote came in and watched a 6 lap race then was leaving but when we started the next race he came right back and watched from about 10' off the track...

Race Ready!!!



Our new layout for the season opener next Wed

panoramic shot
Track all done just need to hang monitor from the ceiling for the scoring and put up a ceil;ing fan to pump the heat down from the roof.

BRP car all tuned for the season just waiting on some foams for the MRS4

This layout looks like it may be a bit on the open side but we change it up every 6 weeks or so , the next will prob be a bit tighter.
we added about 10 feet to the track and optimised the seating location for better visability.
cant wait.

1/18 Mamba upgrades soon

I'm pretty sure most of you use a spec motor but FYI all the castle 1/18 products seem to be discontinued.....
I'm trying to find one for our newest racer Frank.
I called Castle and they are being replaced with 4 pole motors

New Bodies


Thanks to Mikedw for the paint.
The new trucks are sporting a woodgrain rear deck this year it kinda matches the workbench!!.
Pics of all to follow next race day as all the boys (and girls) get them mounted up for a photo op before we beat them to death...
We are 2 nites into the new race season and the new carpet is already starting to show the "line" as a slightly darker shadow. late start this week resulted in only about 400 laps being run.
