Sorry guys, I'm running behind as usual. I spoke with Mark over the weekend, They have the keys and should be able to access the area today. I'm planning on going over Saturday getting the track set up.

What I need to know is who's coming over to help and what track are you bringing. What's a good time. I'd like to be there when they open. Can anyone bring a good vacuum or shop vac. Please try to let me know by tomorrow evening so I can talk with the guys at Hobby town and verify everything.

I'll have a few track layouts for opinions at High Speed tomorrow.

Wade

I spoke to Mark last night and they are still working with the landlord, he has been out of town. He still thinks they are OK for the weekend, hopefully they can confirm today. I will be there as early as we can get in, I have a super sucker shop vac.

Hey guys, we have a small road block to deal with.

We just got in the space, and found damage that the landlord was unaware of.

A pipe above the bathroom leaked a bunch of water over the bathroom and the back 1/3 of the space is soaking wet. The carpet should be okay, but the bathrooms are unsafe; ceiling caved in, drywall sagging, and the light fixtures have fallen down. We didn't get a key before the power company came to turn the power on, and since the breakers weren't off they refused to turn the power on. So, that is being rescheduled for next week as well. The landlord should have the water cleaned up and we should be able to get in there to setup the track early next week.

I know this sucks, but we're doing the best we can.

Mark you guys are doing a fine job. You can't help circumstances beyond your control. You will be fortunate if you get access next week at all especially if there is sheetrock and ceiling damage. If it isn't too bad maybe a lower rent can be negotiated. That might be a possibility anyway just for the inconvenience. Worth a try.

Just stopped by HT and the doors are open! The guys have set up a Road Rail 10th scale track and have been running around. We will have to work with the 10th scale guys to get some room for a decent size track but that should be no problem, they know as well as we that one scale alone isn't gonna pay the rent. We should be able to pull up some of the Road Rail for MiniZ race days. We would need to have a smaller track or shove it right into the corner for general practice days, they want be able to have both tracks running continuously. We also need to figure out how to share the timing system but I think connecting two bridges, one for each track, to one computer shouldn't be a problem for practice days. On race days one or the other gets the timing system outright. We will have to work with the HT management and the big scale guys to get it all sorted out. We need to start looking at scheduling a CC 2011 event soon!

The RCP track is going in this Saturday with the first club race scheduled for the 26th. Those of you in the area please come on out and support 1/28th scale on-road racing!

Has anyone tried running a mini-z on the carpet? If not someone give it a shot tomorrow. The traction was good for the 1/10 scale I ran on it, so the smaller lighter cars should be good.

If that would work, we have a giant size track

I'll be racing in Rock Hill tomorrow, and I normally try to do Easley on Saturdays. I'll try to swap my days and get by there now and then too.

What didn't you try your Mini-Z on the carpet?

I've never run on carpet, but lots of people around the world do. As I understand it, not any ole carpet will do

The carpet fibers alone will be detrimental to Mini Z performance,not to mention the surface would be about like a fine sandy washboard as far as handling and traction.

There is a lot of low pile carpet that would work just fine for Z racing. Whats at High Speed is better than carpet as far as traction. The carpet at HT is to fuzzy, but I'll let you know after tomorrow.
