we need to chat with Mike K. he has hosted the last couple.

i'm hoping we can. i'd like to get as many of us together to discuss plans for 2011. most of us just aren't on the forum to do so.

I think we may have enough giro z transponders to go around. I've got one spare and so does Gary and I'm thinking of picking up a few more. So far aside from user error the sysem has been flawless. I also have a bunch of the plugs I can loan out too.

Lets try and start a drivers list so we know how many will be coming. Also post if you have a transponder or not so I can get an idea of how many to get.

Awesome. Will you be able to loan one out?

I have 2 and 4.

more than willing to loan it out. maybe we pool the transponders for use, much like we used to have to do back in the amb-it days with house transponders.

VAzRACER

Yep, that what I was thinking. The more loaners the better though, we wont have to worry about who has what.

I'm gonna try and bring a printer so we can print the results and be able to post the heats with your transponder #. It will help avoid confusion.

I have the #9 transponder. I can think of 10 total transponders if Bill comes.

This is the list as far as I have heard

I can probably make this, but not 100%. Don't have a gyroZ transponder though...

Maya and I will be there. I will do my best to get 2 transponders before then.

If you guys need laptop, core (with transponders) or printer let me know I have all 3 that can be used for the event.

Try to talk to Gary so you get transponders that none of us have already. I think they only have 25 numbers available.

The original DC GTG Giro-Z transponder list is a sticky. http://mini-zracer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=32999

Bill and I are coming.
Bill has transponder #7
I have transponder #16

Barring unforeseen circumstances (been way too many of those lately), I should be able to make it. I've got transponder #12.

I also have a core lap counter if needed. And a lap top but no printer.

Joe plans to go. We both have core transponders but not giroz. I will try to get one by the race. I can bring the core loop we use to run HFAY if needed

I do not see the need for you guys to go out and buy one @ $40 a pop if we will have 10 transponder at the race. I am fine with letting people use mine.

Matt, will we be fine if we have 10 transponders there on race day?

I think so, we would be fine with half that. I just need to figure out how to share the transponder #'s on zround. Maybe we can try it ou this weekend just to make sure.

Davey G should be able to tell you how they use the house transponders.

Hi everyone, just wanted to ask everyone to please bring a towel to pit on. The last time a few tables where left very dirty and it took me a lot of scrubbing to get them clean. Looking forward to the race. See everyone on Sat. Thanks MK

I just want to thank everyone for coming yesterday. I also wanted to thank Matt and Mike Gee for running the races. My day did not start off well with the issue I was having with my stock car. It never did get fixed so I put a stock motor in my mod car and ran it in both classes. The mains were a lot of fun. I think in the stock main Matt and I ran 25 lap within half a second of each other after my body came off. I ended up loosing two laps to get that fixed. Gary Jr has to be so happy with his car and how he qualified. He had the fastest hot lap out of everyone in the stock class. I think we had four mains that had a battle going all the way to the last lap. Two of them changed leaders on the last lap. I hope everyone had a great time, I know that I did. Congrats to Matt on his two wins in stock and mod. I won F1 but Bill had a faster car and had some problems in the main. I can see that Seth and Joe will be two other great racers to battle with after some more track time on some larger tracks. I hope everyone has a great holiday and I will see you all at the track next year. MK
