dcshoes- It's a great place to get started with a lot of friendly people, who have experience and also several new comers. Your SC10 will fit right in to the Slash Class. One of our regular drivers runs an SC10 with the Slashes. I hope to see you Sat.

tcase - I'm sorry you can't make it. This will be the last parking lot race. Currently, we are considering running some indoor carpet races. They would be 1/18 and 1/16 scale. But, it has to be discussed and approved by the Church Council. So, there is nothing for sure. If we do have some indoor races, I'll post the information here.

How about a Tamiya mini class on carpet? They are small enough. FYI I just got my M05 pro, probably will start buildig it next week. :banana:

Tristar Racing - I'm glad you got it and I'm anxious to hear how you like it. If the carpet racing comes off, I think Tamiya Minis might work. We'll have to see if the Church Council approves.

Checkout the this thread tomorrow before you leave. If it's raining a lot. I'll post the cancellation there. We usually set up the track about 7:00 AM. So, if we are going to cancel it early, it should be before 7:00 AM.

Sounds great. I have stock HPI blitz but I am running a non roar approved lipo. The lack of restrictions makes it great so everyone can just run what they have and have fun

I will be there!:banana:

At today’s race we had a small turnout but a great time. There was a mixture of young an old drivers. The level of driving was quite good. The Slash classes dominated in number and in action. We want to thank Wayne from Champaign, IL., for including us in his weekend trip to the Chicago area. Gene made his first race with us and ran consistently well. Our young stars included Michael, Robbie, Will and Ethan. They did very well. And to our iron man, Scott, congratulations. He ran every class. The Slash Main was exceptionally close for the top spot.

It had not rained early so Gloria and I went to Winfield and with John Rebel's help the track was set up about 8:50 AM. About 9:10 the rains came. We waited for a while then with John's help we took down the track. John really saved us a lot of work. He stayed and worked in the rain helping us. John did a great job!

OUR NEXT RACE IS JUNE 19! We hope to see more people there. Again, thanks to John who went above and beyond.
