Not sure if we are doing the BTE or not yet but if it fits and if you guys want to do it, we'll give it another shot! We are already running 70turns anyways so there's really no transistion, just a new layout.

Seemed like everyone could make it for the 30th so it should be a good repeat of the fun we just had! Also, check the Tune-night (14th of Dec.) thread if you need more track time to get your tune on.

Just wanted to let you guys know that we will be participating in the HFAY BTE9 on the 30th. I've already got the layout down so if you want to get some practice in, the track will be open on the 14th in the afternoon/evening. I'm going to take that Friday off so there is less chance of having to wait in my driveway for me to show. ;)

we should have a DTM class for the fun of it. I was watching some racing this weekend of the DTM!!!!

Then we all have to buy the DTM Autoscales. Let's stick with the any body theme.

Although, I have been thinking about a skinny street car class, that would probably work for us. Stock motors too.

We're always looking for racers, this Friday is a tune up day, some of the guys will be here around 11am, some may show up in the evening. I'll shoot you a PM with the information.

I know Larry and Dave will be here at 11am on Friday, when are the rest of you guys planning to show? (Justin, Quinny, Joey, Greg) I may have to give you all the boot around 9pm. :D

Quick question, what classes do you run out there, any motor restrictions etc...

Gotta check the schedule, but might be able to make it this time

Mike,
We're running the HFAY BTE on that Sunday...70 turn stock, 70 turn F1, and maybe the open motor class if we have time. Ed usually opens the door at 10am. I'm sure he'll chime in soon...lol.

We will be running HFAY Racer and F1 Stock, 70turns only. I will probably open up early that Sunday, more around 9am. We usually don't get to the heats until around 1 or 2pm.

It's going to be a full house. For those that know of the alternate parking area, please be advised that it would be greatly appreciated if you could use it (up on Hill Rd, across the back yard).

@@ can't wait XD... np I'll park up on the hill

hey ed, hows the snow on the roads going towards your house. hopefully we can get everyone as promised tomorrow...and hope everyone drives safe.

hilldebrandt
2012.12.29, 04:36 PM
I'll be there tomorrow but I'm wondering how the alternate parking is with the snow...see y'all between 9 and 10...

imxlr8ed
2012.12.29, 04:48 PM
Alternate parking... Yeah, either way you go is cool with me, if I have to be a valet, that's fine. I just need you all to park tightly, If we do that we shouldn't have a problem.

Quinn... When it comes to driving safe, you're the only one I'm worried about. ;)

New Holland is just wet, Hill Rd is plowed, my driveway will be cleaned. Well, at least the steep part.

Im not worried...my saab is a beast in the snow!! Ive tried today!

What time you opening...10?

imxlr8ed
2012.12.29, 10:42 PM
For you Larry... 12noon, for everyone else... 9am! :p

All I gotta do is vacuum and move a piece of furniture out of there and I'm ready to go.

Driveway report:
Had to cut the driveway maintenance short this evening (forgotten dinner plans) so there's the typical two tire path up the hill, the rest is now ice. Unless the 30lbs of salt I just threw down has anything to say about it! Should be ok by morning.

Good day of getting the new guys up and running and running some HFAY big track races. See you guys next month.:)

I learned that there was a conspiracy launched against the starting procedure for the F1 Main? Good one guys... I thought it was pure chance that everyone left on "2", the restart was better though.

Great fun, great racing, the pizza dissappeared all too quickly!

Results will be up soon. I'm very impressed with our new racers, for only a few hours of wheel time total they did real well!

Thanks again guys for making these events fun, looking towards the 20th of January for the next raceday!

Results are up on HFAY:

And I thought we were way off-pace! Very glad the setup on my 599 woke up for this race, we had a good, clean A-main and it shows.

Larry... your results are to be expected. :p

Quinny... just amazing what you can do with an old AM board and a mish-mash of old hop-ups! :cool:

Dave... great job for being out of it for so long, now stop bumping walls! ;)

Greg... more racey, less tuney! :rolleyes:

Joey... well, at least you didn't come in las... oops. Oh well, you've only been driving these for 4 or 5 hours! :o

Michelle... awesome job! :D

Thanks again everyone! I'm gonna put up our next event thread tonight sometime. Still shooting for the 20th of January if everyone is cool with that.

Pissed I couldn't come, working on clearing anything for the weekend of the 20th but I'm sure work will screw me again some how, and don't worry about being last that's only cause I wasn't there

Rip-off! I'll stick with the original! Those tracks don't fit down there anyways.

2013.01.05, 12:55 PM
I understand, but I wish there would be an HFAY series with BTE type tracks every month...

Without the ISRL rules imposed....lol

wow, really is a blatant rip off :mad: very frustrating for those of us that have invest a lot of time and effort into the HFAY brand. another way to look at it would to be flattered that HFAY has done well for so long that it's been copied. bound to happen though, surprised really it took this long. fill the void HAY has not yet filled with the 3 and or 4 wide l point series.
