I believe the wing racing series is going there November 20th. Contact Jeff Cox to make sure.

The GRRR series was there in August.

The Flexi series dropped Greg Walkers track from the schedule a few years back. I'll add to my post that I was informed Greg wanted out of the series.


Test, test, test and go test some more.

Success is never owned but rented and rent is due everyday.

I was told the owner didn't want flexi because lack of front tires, but he's holding a wing race,wings don't have front tires either am I missing something?

Lol. Yes!

There is a lot of history going way back.

I personally don't want to poke that bear again.

It's just how it is.

Hope to see you at the wing car race November 20th.

Oh, c'mon.  It's kinda fun to watch.   :D  :bomb:  :o

 

Gotta love that guy!!  He's definitely the most complete supporter of slot car racing that I know.  Whether it's HO, 1/32, or 1/24 ... he supports it!  And has done so for a long, long time.

Apples & Oranges to compare Flexi fronts and Wing fronts.

 

 

Wing car chassis don't have front "ears" that drag the track like modern flexi chassis have.  Plus ... most wing car chassis have quite a bit of clearance in the front even though the body and/or diaplane are on (or just off of) the track surface.
