Thanks for the video link, Keith!

I have the video and audio OK, but I'm unable to chat.... must be a firewall thing here at work(?). Is chat working for others?

Technical difficulties. Wireless transmitter went south.
Cheater will be installing a new transmitter within the next few minutes.

Stay tuned.

Pretty heavy pixelation; the resolution was better earlier. I'm not being critical, just giving feedback. Wait. You said Cheater was doing this to us? I AM being critical! :lol:

Keith,

All I will say is that I am very happy with the fact we can actually watch slot car racing from other areas.

Personally I think any thing that can be done to show others what we do is beneficial to the hobby.

You've had a very frustrating day today and I want to thank you for all your efforts for doing what you are doing.

It is appreciated!

I agree 100%. Being able to watch slot car races from the far-flung corners of the country is just SO cool!

Thanks Marty.

We've had technical problems today, but Cheater came to the rescue.

We're going to try switching to the PC laptop in order to get a better video for the Retro Pro race (coming up after the Coupe "A" Main).

The camera needs to be tilted down so we can see more than just the roof tiles.
