J, we race twice per month, and sometimes we add an add'l practice/setup day on a Sunday or "off" Friday. How far of a trip would it be for you guys? Cool! :) :cool:

Guys, Bobby is moving, so he won't be able to race w/ us for the foreseeable future :( - does anyone have a couple of box fans to stick in the doorways like last time, as Bobby will need to take all of his stuff? Thanks! :)

I'll be there around 7PM, I will have some wrenching to do with the new dampening system. I would appreciate any help setting the thing up, I don't even understand how it works :D.

Also if anybody has a used MR-02 chassis with 3010 fets for sale let me know.

Short! We were wondering where you (and Swider) got to?! Don't forget there are 0 drops this season! ;) :) What about if we did our standard 2 Friday night races, and added a 3rd each month on a Sunday for people who couldn't make or stay for all of one (or both) of the Friday races? Actually, I've started a new thread here on the topic of next month's dates, please add feedback there:

I meant there was a total of 40 mins of qualifing and 32 mins of mains and it took us 8 hours to run it we could build practice and run it in 1/2 that time.

I showed up at 7 and left around 2:30AM. I drove the sh@t out of the car on the idle time which was great and I had fun and learned a lot about driving the thing but I think it was just too much waiting time. Here is how my Friday went down (probably the same for most of you): I woke up 6AM worked 9 hours sat in the car driving around 2hours and raced for 7hours. That is 18 hours and the last 8 minutes of that 18 hours was the main :eek: I may be a wuss but I can't handle that anymore.
Personally Sundays are not good for me. Friday nights are excellent but I will be out by midnight no matter what...

yieks, sounds like more stringent race management is needed :p spoon usually keeps us in dc on a good schedule. if we run long, it's still about a 6 hour day.

We need to make sure first and foremost that people arrive on time or descent hour. Second, come prepared. If you arrive late then no a single charged battery....that does not help getting the program going forward. Need to know ahead of time if you are going to make it or not that day, sign you up in the computer early and start the program early. I also cannot be staying up that late. I am a mess the next two days after.

My goal will be to be done racing by 11:30pm, and anybody that wants to practice after that...have fun. If the DOJO opens at 7:00pm, we should have enough time to practice, setup, tune, charge batteries, qualify and run the main by no later than 11:30 PM. Fridays work for me the best as long as that Sunday I have no other events (i.e. races in other series).

I propose the following schedule:
Open Practice 7:00PM - 9:15PM
Qualifiers: 9:30PM - 10:30PM
Fix cars and charge batteries :10:30PM -11:00PM
Mains: Start at 11:00PM sharp
