I think it would be fun to have a 500 lap enduro race with pit stops and battery changes. It would be even better with 12 cars in the field. This would make one heck of a trophy race. :)

You can get 13 cars with the Iwaver crystals, but the cheapest way to go is the 12 channel Radio Shack Xmods crystals

well you could go all out and get some mid 26 mhz CB radio xtals too and run an additional 6-12 cars! But this wont work with a KoProp lap counting system, as it only reads ch 1-12.

500 laps isn't that big of a deal. As a matter of fact, we ran a 2.5 hour Enduro here in Staten Island, on a very large track.

The winners, Mark & Al, finished with 732 laps.

Though, that was team. Our individual one hasn't come up yet.

Must be hard, though. I mean, after an hour or so, my feet were numb. Could race all 500 at once.

Which is why having teams is good for such a long enduro.

kinda old idea. We ran 3-hour enduro race. Results on www.hksrc.com. Look for 3 hour race for results. First place was 1229 laps.

We ran 10 hours one day, 9.5 hours the next day, and 5 hours the third day on my track. I'm pretty sure we ran more than 500 laps. :D One needs a lot of batteries to race here. ;)

TT Raceway is having another Enduro, right now it will be teams of 2 or 3 and a 2 hour race time. We will do it this way so everyone can have a chance to compete since only 6 cars can be ran and scored at one time. Keep an eye out for more info from the club, should take place by the end of the month. Come on down! :cool:

The thing is that my track is a little closer and easier for me to get to than me going to Tom Thumbs Raceway.

Hey, I'm game for a 500 lapper, but what about a Smash to Pass race. Before you can pass you have at tap the car in front of you. As we know, the CP Cup Cars are very tough and can handle a litte tap or two or three.

Just my 2 cents. :D
