Wow! Only 43 days until the Championships! Big guns coming from all up and down the East coast. Right now there appears to be some dominance by one of the new chassis mfg. Nitro looks to be gaining strength and the touring cars are going to be plentiful.

Should be a great event. Get those registrations in asap!

22 Days Until U.S. Concrete Oval Race

More and more racers are now testing and preparing for the big weekend. Practice nights as well as Saturday night racing is seeing bigger and bigger crowds.

We're pressure washing the track tomorrow morning and will be racing Saturday night on a smooth (less abrasive) track.

Just received sets of Touring Car Caps from John and the TC guys will be testing with those tomorrow. They're getting some nice times already.

Absolutely! The purpose of the Friday night is to give that additiopnal track time with competitors on the track. Of course we're also gonna run a "lights-out" race for anyone who's willing and able to try that.
It is Halloween Night after all...gonna be great with the glow sticks on the cars.

Yea...from what I understand so far Team Trinity may be the only group not represented.....but maybe they'll even show.

Hey Musicwiz.....
Have couple of questions. You mentioned the touring car cap tires.... What is a good compound to start with for the mills pond oval ?? I'm going to attempt to run a nitro TC3. And where are the guys getting the tires locally ??
Also what touring bodies are working there ??
I've been out of town for about 3 1/2 years and at that time nobody seemed to be running the oval.... I thought it was a great track and want to give it a shot with the nitro touring car and if I can get it set up I like to try the championship race.........Any help would be greatly appreciated... Thanks, ZXBOY

Zxboy: The compounds that are working best on the Touring Cars are Greens on the left side and Silvers on the right. The racers wanted to run NASCAR bodies so that is preferable (Grand Prix and Dodge Intrepid(HD) work best). Since the body change was made only a few weeks ago, if racers have "only" TC bodies, that will be ok.

We will have the BSR Touring caps on hand for sale at the event. They retail for about 110.00 per set (4) but we're selling them for $64.00/set.

Hope you'll make it down for the race. Track is open now on Monday and Wednesday nights for practice and Saturday is race day.

(There were still a few of us running the oval back then but it had dwindled.....we're getting it back)

Thanks for the info. I'm stuck on second shift this week but I'll try and make practice next week. Could you bring a set of tires on a practice night ?? or is there a retail store location that you have where I can get them ??? Are the guys running wings on those NASCAR bodies ??
I think it's great that the touring oval thing is getting popular. Where I just moved from up north would have a couple of outdoor ovals a year that had a nitro touring class, but it never really caught on :confused: Anyhoo I'm pumped up to give this a try. Thanks, ZXBOY

Zxboy:
I won't have more touring tires until the weekend before the race. You can order them online directly from BSR yourself (bsr-racing.com) Or you might try rc4less to see if they have them. Sorry I don't have more but sold what I had.

On The pan cars we all run body mounted wings. I believe Russ Smith was running his car the other night with nothing but a spoiler. I'll double check that on Saturday night to be sure.

Will be great having you race with us.

Roy: Glad to hear you got some tires on the way.
I have another batch on the way also. I think you'll be happy with the way they hookup.

Good luck! We're glad you're gonna run with us!

Hotel Room Block Released October 15

Kevin:

They held the room block until the 15th (two weeks beyond their normal 1 month in advance of event release date.) 3 rooms were booked on the 15th at the better rate.

Am trying to get them to recognize the original rate even for late bookings. I will know at the end of next week what the rate will be when the manager returns from out-of-town meetings.

Will keep everyone apprised! Doing everything I can to assure the best costs for racers. Not getting much help from the racers!

Don't forget that their current room rate is better than almost anything I have paid at any national r/c racing event that I have attended in the past 5 years. I believe the current rate is the best rate available at the Ramada in Orlando for the Snowbirds.
