We demand pictures Tom ;)

Pucho, that cars gonna look sweet on the track. The new clear coat that he uses is great as well. Thats one of my favorite color combos. it was a toss up between yellow/blue or green/purple when I had my race colors made. I chose the yellow/blue to go with my avatar, and primarily because my favorite color is green, and those make up green. It is also very easy to see on the track.

Al,

Let's do this to some of the tiles:

"Chicane of death", "Roland's corner", etc........

Given that the layouts change frequently, I dont think its a good idea to paint names of corners or sections on the track. An Action RC logo, may not be a bad idea, if something were to be painted.

If we paint a small grid, with very little paint, instead of the larger checker patter that RCP has standard, it would mean more grip where the starting grid is... with less hopping over the grid pattern.

When the grid is near the front of the track, its easy to lose track of where the other cars are on the track when trying to look ahead when negotiating traffic. Especially if the grid is in an accelerating section where the cars break traction and dont drive completely straight. At the PN World Championship, they had small markers where the grid positions were, and I felt that there was much more consistant traction down the straight away. I try to stay off the checker patterns as much as I can for that reason.

Scott and I both picked up our mini z on the first day. Al, never told us about driving straight, being courteous and seeing traffic. In Nascar, isnt rubbing racing. So whats the difference at Al's

I would like to wish a Merry Christmas to my other family at Action..

Last nite, was great racing. While I hate a slow technical track, there was a lot of places to catch up.. See Al, I bumped up so please go from Mr. Sandbagger to Mr. Hacker. I had the Cs locked up but pushed my driving limits to get bumped to the very bottom of the Bs.. Congrats to Greg, for winning the Cs...if I see the points thing the right way

Al - You looked so funny :mad: when I told u that I blocked/hacked you so that Danny, DKR racer, get some spacing on the track. In no way was it intentional. ;) I love this team racing idea, it brings even more drama to our unique style of racing. Tom is right, the team sections with its unique colors and racing motiffs do jazz up the place.. What is EMU Racing, Payne Racing and your team going to do to keep pace?

Danny - I really looked at the paint job and that is a thing of beauty.

Rob - Great paint job on Austin's car, good color combo (DKR Colors of course). We should see if this team racing lasts for a while, could you paint a fleet of team cars all with the same scheme.

DKR - What can I say.. Last series B & C champs all bumped up to the next higher class.

MERRY CHRISTMAS From Team Golddust

Last night was a lot of fun, and I was really happy with my car. I think I really could have held off Danny a few more laps for the win - even though he was coming up on me pretty quickly at the end. This Hackstreet Boy got outsourced by the Indian Mosler! Just kidding - ;) - it was a great race, and I take blame for my laps that allowed Danny to catch me. I had trouble getting by Paul a few times, but he couldn't be more courteous. I just needed to choose better moments to pass, and needed to stay a little tighter in the hairpins to complete some of my attrempted passes. Overall, I was very impressed with my car, and I thought I wheeled it pretty well. Thank you Sai and Roland for all of your hard work on the videos!

For Sundays' enduro, I will make some changes to the layout. I will also throw it out there that if the majority of people that show up on Sunday would rather run something like Gift Card Racing, I'll consider it. Honestly, I'd rather run the enduro because it's different and we don't get to do it as often - and it's a lot of fun.

In case I don't get to say it, Merry Christmas everyone!

I believe with all my hart that we are the force to be reckoned with. Its going to take more then a coat of paint and a flashy banner to win.

He's too busy shoveling the lot...

ActionRC
2010.12.27, 05:48 PM
Forget the lot - I was shoveling my house ALL DAY from 9-4:30, and that was just shovel-width paths plus the driveway. I am hurtin'! My job was closed today, but I am not sure about tomorrow.

Obviously the track will be closed tonight, and I think I will close tomorrow for open practice. We'll pick up again on Wednesday with points racing. By then hopefully the lot will be clear, but I have to find a way to get it done. I don't know anyone with a plow, and this is too much for a shovel or normal snow-blower. Maybe the landlord will do it - I think he ran a plow through a few times last year, but we'll see. I'll send an email shortly.

The enduro was fun - we had the klids on their own team and they did really well and won it. My car was OK but not great all day. I'll post the results shortly.

Happy b'da y Rob!

Work is closed again today, so I'll do more shoveling at home, and maybe some sledding. Actually don't feel any pain today, but slept really well! I'll drive by the track later and see what's going on. I live a block up from Marty and I was able to get out of my block yesterday after I dug from the driveway to the street, but the park entrance is on my corner so I think that's why they do my block. I'm not sure if my block was plowed or if it was just pressed down, but it was probably plowed once if we were able to drive on it yesterday morning.

I'll tell everyone my "getting home from the track" story in person tomorrow. Me, Justin, and Dominick had quite an adventure! :D

Happy Birthday Rob. That video is crazy. The version i saw had music behind it to drown out the cursing, it was much better without it. That 2nd picture looks like a movie scene. Al - you would know if they didnt plow. I dug out my driveway to the street so now when i look out my driveway is clean but it runs into a 2 foot high wall of snow which would probably be up to your window on the civic:D

SaiTam
2010.12.28, 09:46 PM
Jeff, I think that's a 410-HPC. It's more than enough for silver can. However, I have a lot more ESCs for you to choose from. I just need to be able to get back to Queens and get them.

Those sanitation operators obviously don't drive RC cars.

ActionRC

Ok, everyone - so I went to the track this afternoon and dug out a 4' high drift, and got all of the gates and doors open. There is parking to the right of the door and the driveway going towards the back, as well as the side going toward Little Mikey's - plenty of spots for the normal Wednesday crew, so come on down! See everyone tomorrow! :D

Marty - I got to Pathmark yesterday. One cashier all day, and three bank tellers! They owe that cashier Employee of the Month honors!

I don't think I have any Tekin ESC, I'll check again.

When I used to live in Weehawken NJ right across the river; the town would spread salt even before the storm started; streets were plowed cleanly and they had workers dig out a path for pedestrians on each street crossing. NJ had more snow this time and I didn't hear any complaints about snow removal.

Great racing last night! Jason and Ant were dead-even, and Austin would have been right there if it weren't for his pit crew! :p Raj and Paul had a close race too, as did Scott and Marty. It was great to have Crop back again as well. My car has much more steering since I reset the radio, and I actually like it. It'll be really good when I put new rubber on the rear and a faster motor than the Speedy 05 I am running. Plently of MZW38-20 rears on the way for Saturday!

From what I saw they can regulate the power for each individual car. EMU might want to let Shafiq handle this one! As I put him in Dominics class. LOL:D

How wide are the lanes and are there enough passing zones?

I would like to say 3 cars wide. I am going to upload a video of my race winning pass!

I use to race at V17 alot. They black flagged me for drifting too much! I'm down for Jan 22nd though!

Not likely here they dont give that much slide. They run slicks and only break a little. Not paying attention will cause the car to push hard!

Great racing last night! Jason and Ant were dead-even, and Austin would have been right there if it weren't for his pit crew! :p Raj and Paul had a close race too, as did Scott and Marty. It was great to have Crop back again as well. My car has much more steering since I reset the radio, and I actually like it. It'll be really good when I put new rubber on the rear and a faster motor than the Speedy 05 I am running. Plently of MZW38-20 rears on the way for Saturday!

Al ill take a ferrari 599xx red,yellow,and a white body when they come out in jan

Not once not twice but three free orders! The other man... Well he wants a fresh start! He wants a new beginning! He wants to no longer be known as Sammy "Stugottz". If this lad wins he will never be called this at action again.
The race.... All wheel drive shootout... A five minute race. Two drivers one goal! To win!

Austin I hope your ok kiddo. Now for the rant. Just this past Thursday I put a new SP chassis on my car $25 ok figured I get a couple of weeks of use 2 qualifiers at Action couldn't even finish the 2 qualifier I was in cause the car was tweaked from all the HACKING make the main change of body and adjustments run the best I could get home take the body off to clean the car before putting them away the whole front end is cracked another $25 now being spent. Now I don't wanna hear about me hitting the boards a lot cause I have always hit the boards and never had this much damage. I have driven with big sammy for the past 2 years at various tracks and even he noticed we made more contact last night then we have in the past 2 years. I dunno I think driving is more then just going thru your competition you should learn about curteous behavior to the faster driver.

Adam your right I could've flew by you last night but I would've messed up your line leading that's why I didn't fly by you.

TY everyone for your thoughts with Austin.....He's fine! I think his ego is hurt more the anything!!! Thank God for that!

Tough subject Pucho! I don't think there is a driver who has not felt this frustration before. As people come and go in this hobby,as well as get better there is always a period where the new driver seems to drive through the competition instead. Me being one of these people I know how hard it is to grasp the concept of controlled driving and passing. Hell I still make bad decisions....as Al pointed out to me last night! When I see a driver doing this I now will confront the driver about it or mention it before the race. Sought of like ...plant a seed and watch it grow. I can confirm that some times I dont even know I'm doing it. I believe at this point in my RC adventure my goal has changed from being fast to being in complete control of my car.

Also a big concept racers forget is even though we start qualifiers in a race format it means nothing! Qualifiers are to make laps and get the best time for placement in the mains. Sometimes I believe people forget that. Which causes them to push hard for no reason. That is why there are 3 qualifiers.

PadrinoNY
2011.01.02, 03:41 PM
I truly believe that what can prevent the more aggressive drivers from running through the car is the start of the qualifiers. Now I am in no position nor am I am demeaning Al's way of running his track but maybe we should try a staggered start just so that everyone can understand that the qualifiers are for running there best lap and time and not to worry what position they came in. Anyway just my 2 ccents BTW fun race night.

Roland & Sai thanks for your tips and coaching to help me be a better driver.
Sammy sorry about the hits last night.

Ugh - Stu, I mean, Sam, beat me fair and square. I knew my car was not the easiest to drive, which would help us be a little more even, but I never thought it would actually be that close. He gets around the track pretty well with his AWD, I have to admit. I honestly did not let him win, and look how close that race was. I had a good time, and hope to have another chance against him soon. It's hard to give up or stop using a long-standing nickname - imagine if we had to call Crop by his real name? Most of you don't even know it! :D Stugotz is such a great nickname! (Thanks for posting the funny pic, Stu!)

I hear ya, Pucho. It stinks when you look forward to a good race to get taken out in the first lap - especially when you had the lead. ;) Thankfully, the Mini-Z is a tough car, and they generally run a long time without problem. Every once in a while you'll get that bad hit, and it stinks when it happens.

As far as staggered vs. normal starts, the staggered start is the more accurate way to qualify. It is a truer measure of what you are actually capable of, and in a big event, where there is alot on the line, like for pro drivers, I agree 100%. However, for a Friday night local club race, there's one problem with staggered starts - they are BORING! Normal starts at least give us four exciting races instead of one. Again, imagine if you had 3 hum-drum qualifiers where you're just making laps, and then you make the main and get taken out in the first lap - then you didn't even have one fun race. That's why I like normal starts for Action RC. Plus, if you race someone 3 times before the main, you know what might happen from experience on the first lap, and you can plan for it for the main without an unexpected surprise. (Sounds like this might have been your situation, if I am reading between the lines correctly.)

Mario??? I don't look like Mario! Johnathan Knight from New Kids on the Block - maybe. Tony Stewart? Maybe. Fred Savage when we were 14? Absolutely. But Mario? What!?

Points will be updated shortly. Started yesterday, but ran out of time. Fun practice last night - and nice turnout. I LOVE the new layout!!! See everyone tomorrow!

practice since most drivers say my cars run nice.. Just have to work on maintaining attention to my car and to cut the infield better.. I think I start to worry too much in the qualifiers and racer..Or a new radio.

Sammy deserves the respect. He won fair and square. I agree with him that he has out grown the name.

How about Sammy "The Bull" Gottz. When you mess with the bull you get the horns!!!!!!

My brother does... although, I/we dont play GT5 much. I prefer Forza III... I thought about getting my own PS3 just to play GT5... but its still up in the air. If my bro chips in, so he can have a quiet PS3 to watch movies, I still may do it. (My bro is my room-mate, so we would have 2x PS3 and 2x Xbox 360 in the house/studio for multiplayer use).

Like me, you have plenty of time in your schedule according to the wifey.
PS3 online is free, XBOX u have to buy membership. I have both but play online with XBOX. I use te PS3 as a blue ray player and for some limited games. My opinion is XBOX but a lot of guys on the track use PS3.

Both systems are great But Adam if you already have a Blu Ray player at home don't get the PS3 unless you like exclusive titles like GT5. The Xbox is a great online playing system but yes you pay to be on it thats what makes it far more superior to the PS3. The PS3 is the better home entertainment system though.

Xbox is easier to code the games than the PS3 is. This makes the titles a little more polished with less work. GT5 is a huge letdown for me, it looks like its 3-5 years outdated, and it just came out. The videos and replays make it look amazing, but actual in game, Im let down.

Online performance, Xbox is a little superior. But most new titles have adopted the hopper system for their multiplatform games, so you really get the same interface for the PS3 and Xbox for most of the big games (Call of Duty being one of the lines). In general I prefer the Xbox controller to the PS3. Primarily for the trigger feel and usage. PS3 triggers feel like buttons, not analog triggers. For driving/racing, I really like Forza, but lack of a good midrange wheel makes it difficult to get setup for cheap. The Fanatec Porsche Turbo-S wheel was made in very limited quantities, and is the only other real option besides the M$ wheel, which isnt good, but can be modified a little to make it better (bearing instead of bushing).

I have my Xbox hooked up to a 23" computer monitor 1080p HDMI. The feel is close to playing a PC, with an Xbox controller. I want KB/mouse, but that will come in time.

I swore that I wasn't gonna have to many opinons for the start of the new year. But.......Eugen struck a nerve. Xbox cant even come close to PS3 in any aspect. The graphics on xbox are primative. If you put two tv's side by side there is no comparison....PS3 will crush xbox. Xbox is a system that was made for rpg games and no other. PS3 and EA have revolutionized the industry for sports since the early 90's. And compare contollers.....PS3 - small,pettite and managable. XBOX - bulky,akward and delays. Not to mention you have to pay for online at xbox and you dont for ps3. I am a hard core gamer , I play COD Black ops and MW2 on both systems. With an average KDR of 8:1. In this gamers opionion xbox not even close!! I bought GT2 for my son jason and he was disappointed with it as well. In conclusion for all Point and shoot and sports game PS3 gets my vote!
I am always online

I have on thing to say about the Xbox 360 RRD=Red Ring of Death. I had three of them, I still have one but to play it I have to put three fans in front of it so it dosen't die but after 20 mins it freezes anyways. Now they came out with a new slimmer version but you can't change the hard drive so you have to spend $300 for the 160gb one. I still have my PS3 for two years with no problems. Ps I love GT5 I think it's better than Forza 3.

As excited as I was for GT5, I think I like Forza on the XBox better so far. I have to play around with GT5 a little more though, since we just got it for Christmas. I actually like the XBox controller better. I never play online, and only play racing games. The only non-computer competition I have is Justin, and he beats me most of the time now. My opinion is the most meaningless on this topic. Hey, wait, that seems to be true in MOST topics on this thread! :rolleyes:

Adam: i need something else to do when i am not ... laundry, taking care of kids
Al: Sound slike you need a second wife or a maid more than you need a gaming system! ;)

Sai - The first track (the wood one) was originally painted black because roads are black. I hated it, and it darkened the room. I then painted it grey and it looked beautiful - especially with green "grass". The cars were easy to see, and the room was bright. I agree - RCP should be grey!

Scott - I Like your new title. If you're mayor, what am I?

Stu - I like Studitti! (Pronounced Stoo-ditti.) How about BotzGotz? (Italians know "botz"!)

I have to say I agree with Scott, PS3 is better than XBOX. Forget about quality of systems theres no comparison (RROD). Graphics are better on the PS3, you just need the right equipment. As far as value per dollar the PS3 can not be beat. Emu is correct in saying that the XBOX is easier to code for but that in itself is its downfall because all the devs use existing computer engines to run their games, so you end up with a pluffer of games that are basically lesser quality PC games that all play the same with different skins (graphics), nothing new just prettier. Once developers hit this wall they eventually learn how to program for the PS3 and the results can not be equalled, it was the same for the PS2 and all previous iterations. Yes I'm one of those people that blame devs (being lazy) for crap games not the consoles. I can't say much about GT5 as I haven't started playing it yet but from past versions of the game I have found out that you have to invest time into it before you really get all the game has to offer. My biggest beef with console gaming in general is this crap they call DLC and game updates ala "fixes", to me this just lets devs release incomplete and bug ridden games that the public pays full price for and when you complain about they issue a "fix" that breaks other things or makes it worse. How about you make a complete game that is programmed correctly and optimised for each system respectively and stop complaining about how hard it is. Whats really missing for the gamer is cross platform gaming, that would be the defining factor because there would be no more I can only play this game online with XBOX or PS3.

I love my PS3 (on my 1080P 52" what else...Sony) but cant bash the Xbox because i have no experience with it but just got my son one for Christmas. I mostly like adventure games and shooters. I think it's funny how MOST (not all) Xbox guys totally bash the PS. They get so heated and dramatic (like Yankee fans). Assassins Creed, Metal Gear and Drakes Fortune are good series'. I've never seen a game look as good as Assassins Creed. The picture is unbelievable. I dont play online a lot but lately have been racing online w/ need for speed, it's a lot of fun. Scott, next time i get on i'll add your name. It will be from Fifty7.

Tom, architecturally speaking, the Xbox is a better core. It may only be a 3-core instead of 9-core like the PS3. Each of the three cores in the Xbox is fully capable core of handling heavy load, where the sub cores in the PS3 are only capable of handling small tasks delegated by the main core. On paper the PS3 core looks better, but in the real world, I feel that it is inferior. If I am biased towards anything, it will be PC. Otherwise, I feel that the Xbox and the PS3 have their strengths and weaknesses. I just wish they could all play together in the same yard (online).

The fact of the matter is that all cross platform games are essentially the same nowadays. There is very little difference besides making compatability adjustments to the system it will be on. Most cross platform games are inferior to what they would be if the developers designed them for the best platform, PC, and left the others out. The fact of the matter is that the PC gaming market is probably in the 10% range, if that. While PC continues development, consoles prevent it as the hardware is updated every 5-10 years.

In general developers have to dumb down the graphics of the PC games when they cross platform. I dont care too much for graphics, I care more for gameplay than feel, but I feel that most cross platform games dont focus enough on that either. They just want the game to look good, and make their money.

Without PC development, Xbox and PS3 games would take longer to come out, and wouldnt look or play as well. In general, PC gamers are more of a community, and contribute a lot more into the gaming community than console gamers, who are usually solely end users; consumers.

As far as screen size, the size of my pixels are much finer, and easy to the eye upclose. The screen refresh rate is also much higher. My brother has a 46" Panasonic LED TV, and my image quality is far superior to his when we play the same games. He has to put 'game mode' on to reduce the latency, otherwise there is a 1/2 second lag between input and output on the screen. I love my screen size, and since I use headphones, I dont disturb anyone.

I'm not arguing about which machine has better specs because that can go back and forth for ages, each machine does what it does but in very different ways (compared to a gaming pc they're both crap). Now the difference lies in the fact that the XBOX is programmed very similar to the PC (Microsoft, Duh), that may be good to get games and apps out quickly but its the same stuff and it gets stale very quickly. PS3 on the other hand is totally different to program therefore requires learning, thats why first gen games in all honesty suck. You are also correct in that a game will always be better on the platform it was designed for. The fact is as time goes by we are going to see a seperation as to what the PS3 can do compared to the XBOX once the devs remove their heads from their arses and comitt themselves to learning the PS3, don't get me wrong a lot of this is Sony's fault because its a known fact that their SDK's are crap and aren't to keen on training third party devs to program for their machine, go figure. This is all just my opinion but for me I have yet to play a game on the 360 that doesn't feel like a regular XBOX game, keep in mind I rarely play XBOX. Something else to consider is what has occured in the PS3 scene, who knows what this could do to the PS3, PSP2 and even the PS4 if there is one??

What I meant about quality and having the right equipment is you may not like Sony for being more expensive and proprietary but the fact is I have everything Sony and anyone who has seen and heard my systems all agree that it is leaps and bounds over their setups (including XBOX fanboys) regardless of money spent. Sony's equipment is designed to work with Sony's equipment and in my opinion does it better than any other manufacturer out there (yes I've tried different systems). I've seriously had friends tell me they had a better experience watching on my stuff than IMAX with THQ.

There are no Mega Teams though, there may be more than three people under one umbrella name but they are seperate A, B, C teams. In fact it can be viewed as a detrement because we're all fighting for the higher points. DMS ROCKS BABY.
