Well just to give a update on the tracks proggress this year...We have a very fast Bolink Legends class!! Alot of new entry level people getting involved!! I'm trying to make this a friendly track for the entry level person.I must say it is just that the people up at the Strand are helpful and easy to get along with so anybody wanted to get the youngsters involved don't hesitate!!

See Ya at the Track!!!

4 cell stock is hurting right now...We have a great legend class evolving now...as far as 4 Cell stock the general consensus is no one wants to spend the money on expensive tires at this point..reason I say this is I notice higher then normal tire wear at my Track....but we are currently thinking about a bush class this is not all been worked out yet...I'm actually pretty excited about this and want to get it up and runnin for a number of reasons....

#1 Cost <Spec tires Spec Motors with any Brush and 4 Cell Spec Packs>

#2 Chassis <This will open the door for class development> Woods,10L's,SK Modified ect...pancar based platforms!!!

#3 New People!!! <This will be a excellent class for a entry level person> Pancar can be pretty intimidating to the new person...I know I was and this will give the new person an arena to compete in and not be intimidated !!

#4 Cost again!!!! I would much rather do my learning on a old 10L and beat the snot out of it then say a KSG or whatever...and then find out I don't even like it???? that would suck!!! Money down the crapper!!!

#5 Tunability This I believe would be the next step up from the Legend Class
for the person that learned on a legend and wants to expand out in tunability..

You guys are the racers out there and the ones who bring new people into the Hobby... So any and all comments regarding this will be considered and possibly implemented...

you can email me at [email protected] with any comments questions ect..thx again

Track is up and running....the points will start next week....this is not your ordinary track guys ...I believe this is one of the best chassis tracks on the NE....Motor and battery is not gonna be the ticket here...if you think you are a chassis Racer then you gotta give this track a far shot....If there was a group of Pancar guys that would give this track two weekends in a row the groove would be run in and I believe the competition would be outstanding....anyone can put a hot motor and pack in there car if they have enough cash........BUT lets see if the setups are out there!!!! I do not speak as a experienced racer with setups...because quite frankly I suck!! but!!! I know if I learn chassis now I will be a contender when it comes time!!! So here it is a chassis track that puts racers on a level playin field!! Come and See for your self...It was said Build it and they will come well...NO MORE EXCUSES LETS SEE THE HOUSE PACKED TO THE GILL...those are the Problems as a race director that I want to have....Until next week Be safe and Happy!!!
