September race schedule

Last night, Mike, Lee and I took a few hours and got our timing system working. We can run rock-solid on our system with large RFID tags mounted to the bottom of the cars. So far, it has counted every lap. Mike has these tags now -so we can race now- and we are ordering some as well. On Mike's CORE loop, these tags can be run INSIDE the car, so we have talked about using his system as well. Either way, we're up an running.

That said, I would like to throw out a few dates for September racing:

Saturday 9/11/10 @ 9:00 am.

Tuesday 9/21/10 @ 6:30~ish.

The big tags are the standard(business card size) tags used by CORE and flipside. They have the largest area of antennae built in and therfore are pretty near bullet proof. With the kyosho ribbon the tags must be attached to the bottom of the chassis. Tedious but workable. With the CORE loop you can mount the tag inside the body. Still tedious but easier as the tags don't like being bent out of their normal flat shape.

We can get up and running with either system but I am still looking for a cost effective solution to the issue.

I have been checking out the new Losi Rally cars and SCTs and they are quite cool! I told Mark he should set up an extra class for these in addition to the Mini Zs on Saturday the 12th. If you have one... bring 'em out. We could throw down some quick obstacles, stuff under the RCP for jumps, etc...
I will pick one up this week.

See you Saturday for onroad and offroad!

Also, looking at my calendar, Saturday is the 11th, not the 12th. Mark, can you confirm dates, want to make sure I block out the times in the family calendar!

Fixed, my mistake! Thanks.

Just want to get it on the board... Mini Z and Losi SCT/Rally racing this Saturday, 9-11!
A somber day of course but we are lucky in this country that we can still have a little fun.

Went by and gave the track a clean-up. Ran my Losi around, they will be fun to race! Too bad you can't come out Nitro! Look forward to seeing everyone else.

Thanks to Brent and Mark for a bit of fun today. While we didn't get many regular Z racers we sparked a lot of interest in the customers who came in for choppers or Traxxas trucks. HT sold at least 1 Mini Z and I don't know how many Losi Rally cars and SCTs. The Losi's were fun to run and I look forward to our next race. We really only did demo runs this weekend. We added some jumps and banks to the track as well as throwing the dots that come with the cars on the track. I think these Losi's will prove popular here.
My own truck was a lot of fun to drive. I replaced the AM board with an 02 board and used the 7.4v Lipo. I rebuilt the shocks with Losi 90w F and 70w R and used some slightly stiffer springs all around. Just need to work on freeing up the drive train.

The Z's drove better after all the track cleaning. Mike M kindly loaned the shop an old, original Core system to use instead of the Kyosho/Core and it worked very well, even in the Losi's!

Hope to see you Tuesday the 21st.
