Been awhile so several things to discuss. First up we have, hopefully, our big monthly massive turnout F1 race coming up next weekend. No on road racing at all this weekend because of the Annual Big Foot off road shindig Mikes does every year. So hopefully that, and the fact that we asked what would be a good weekend for the massive turnout F1 race, will help us have a, well, turnout.
We have Monday practice plus another layout change tomorrow night, looking forward to hitting the carpet again. Me, Robert, Scott, Zach and hopefully some others will help put the track together and lay down some rubber for a groove. We will also continue testing out the Pardus tires tomorrow. I have a set, as does Zach, plus Robert has been borrowing one of those sets to test while I have been away from the track. He digs them, and I do. I had problems at first with too much grip, traction rolling and all that. But after looking things over, the issue was the outer diameter of the Pardus vs the Pits were about 2mm more. So a quick ride height change and, Bazinga!, back in action. Scott will unveil the new 3Racing F113, and hopefully let us take it for a spin. Also there should be a couple of Tamiya F104 Pro V2's there as well, oddly enough I have not seen one in person yet. So we should have a full gauntlet of F1 chassis: Exotek F1R, Exotek F1 Ultra, Tamiya V2, Kyosho Plazmas and now a 3racing F113. Plus I am sure Robert will have one of his original F103 carpet rockets on hand. Tom even has a Top F1 Rebel that he hasnt brought out yet, but he won't be there tomorrow. Man what a great time to be in F1 RC.
More stuff. In June we are having the 1st annual Ultimate Vintage Transam Championship at Mikes. Originally planned for just VTA, seeing how VTA guys are kinda weird like the F1 guys, they brought us together for the weekend. Randy Novak has already lined up some BIG TIME sponsors and the rumor mill has even mentioned a few more. Rules are USVTA for the VTA and our Mikes House rules for F1. Meaning F1 chassis up to 205mm RUBBER F1 tires, 2 cell and 21,5 or slower. Simple, just like us. We will be running a 10 minute hot lap qulaifier and 3 10 minute mains with 2 pits each for points. Should be cool. Hell, it will be cool. Here is the LINK to the race. Some big time Sponsors and already a few Big Time drivas have committed to the show. Looking way forward to this, stay tuned for more.
