I have two Wide L tracks and the CORE speedway laptiming system. If anyone is interested in competing in the www.howfastareyou.com points series or if you just want to run Mini-z's just contact me thru this thread or the forum email.

Hey thanks! Yeah it's been a rough start for me here as far as Mini-z's go. I just barely got the timing system at the end of may so I can compete now but finding a place to setup the track in doors has been tough.

I think I'm going to use the break room at work. Only problem there is if you're not military or have a pass to get on base you can't just drive on.

I'm also looking to buy a house and hopefully with a two car garage so I can at least setup there for the 3 of us now. I only have a 1 car here in the rental and the rain has kept us from running the June event.

Hopefully one of the 600+ guests on the forum is from this area and wouldn't mind coming out to race.

We are located at
100 Scott ave.
Wichita Falls, TX
76306

It was pretty cool. We had the timing system setup and the track in an oval. I'm waiting for my wide inside turns and a couple nascar kits. I'm wanting to start a NASCAR series locally.

For tracks we are using two wide L's. The dimenions are 24'x9'.

how was racing?

No show's. Well we were only there from 1pm to 4pm. There is a local here that showed up at 4:15 :( I felt bad. We left only 15 minutes before. I plan on setting up a car just for him so when he gets there he has no choice but to stay and race ;) :p

I did quite well on the November track though. I managed to pul 87 laps with errors. That would have been a top 10 finish on HFAY. I know I still have it. I just need some A-main racers.

Sheila has invited a couple of her co-workers husbands. They seem interested. I'm going to have to get a couple more stock cars.

I don't think the Nascar thing is going to take off.

you think it will do better with typical cars? keep in mind it took years to get dc gtg to a constant of 3 or more. ;)

Only reason I think I'd have more interest is because the cars are easier to run out the box. And with the track setup for HFAY I can pitch that. The NASCAR seems like it would be more appealing but I think that is going to have to be a seperate event kind of thing.

Basically get'em interested with the racers then run the NASCAR oval with the racers, then move to the NASCAR cars. Kind of like how most are with F1 and racers.

I guess I shouldn't have stopped and got a drink. :cool:

I am looking forward to getting in there and seeing what it all about for myself. Hopefully this weekend.

Yeah funny how that works huh? My wife was freezing! I kicked on the heat but I don't think it's working. I'll give Roby a call and find out what the deal is.

I just remembered today that I have to work this Saturday all day. Maybe we can run on Saturday evening or on Sunday after noon?

Plan on having a car setup for you so you don't have to sit and watch. ;)

But if you want in the evening it should be fine or just another time. Can't wait to run with you guys.

Really? Cool man congrats and good luck!

I get off from work at 4PM on Saturday. Either day is fine. I can head over on Saturday after I get off from work and we'll just see you when you get there.

I'll shoot you an email again before we leave. Give me a ring on Saturday. Should be some good racing. Looking forward to meeting you.

I have a couple cars. One is an MR-02 RM NSX and it's HFAY spec ready. The other car I have is a Motul 350Z with a 94mm MM motor mount. It would be considered open class. The FET's are upgraded to a 1x1 4562.

I also have three NASCARS. We'd have to change the track to the oval. Right now it's setup as the HFAY November (http://hfay.tinyrc.com/Portals/0/files/OLPS-S4-Race-10_printing.jpg)

We can setup for HFAY December (http://hfay.tinyrc.com/Portals/0/files/OLPS-S4-Race-12_printing.jpg) and give it a go. In reality all we need is 3 people to compete in the series.

Well Saturday was pretty good. Thanks for coming out Brett.

Guys I think he's hooked! We ran the November HFAY track and the CORE timing system. He quickly showed improvment only after a few races. It looks like we'll be in the HFAY 2008 season.
