Dang, I don't think I am going to be able to make this one - though I would love to go!

Anyone else planning to make it?



By The Way - for the sealed-can (brushed) classes it sounds like a bring-your-own motor?
- No Handout?
- And no designated 'turns' ??
- So could you bring a 12-turn sealed can motor?!?

Some of the usual suspect are in discussions.

I would assume they mean a kit Tamiya silver can. Though it is left open for interpretation. :lol:

Looking forward to this event. I’ll be running a Tamiya SuperAstute in Oldschool and a VQS in Tamiya Plastic.

Practice will be free all day on Friday the 12th, but only if you are pre-registered for the race by the 5th. When we stopped there on the way down to the NC vintage race , it was $25. So if you're definitely going, save yourself some money and get in before the deadline.

Little typo in the rules, I think 4wd is actually 13.5 motor, not 17.5

I think I remember someone question that before, but I forgot to update it here.

The event went well overall for attendance and the entries. The track surface is sealed and the course was very tricky. When you pushed too hard you ended up with some pretty good crashes and I know a lot of guys were frustrated. The local fast guys were fun to watch and knew how to drive that layout.

I'll try and pull some images from Facebook to put up here later tonight. Lots of cool cars, a few very hard to find things in concourse. I ended up not even taking pictures working and wrenching on lots of different things.
