... unless I'm missing it, how about a proxy race forum?

That's, OK, Mike, throw me under the bus here in Gerneral... LOL!

That's a good idea, actually.

Where should it go, I mean, under what category?

I don't know... I kind of like already having the Proxy races in "Thingies", "Scratchbuilding", etc.  But... I guess we can spread it out.


Or... start a Proxy Racing section and put links to the already started threads in each of the appropriate sections?

Heck, J, I'll just move the threads into a Proxy forum, when I make one.

OK, guys, I've been thinking about this for several days and I think the best location for a Proxy Racing forum is as a subforum under Scratchbuilding. Most of the time, Proxy races are held for scratchbuilt car, or partially scratchbuilt cars, which is why that seems the best location to me.

 

Anyone violently oppoosed to locating it there?

Well it's done and I moved all the threads involving proxy racing to the new subforum. If I missed threads that need to be moved, please let me know.

Decided to split the Proxy subforum in two, as encouraged by Gator Bob. 

 

So now there is a 1/24 Proxy Racing subforum under 1/24 Model Racing and a 1/32 Proxy Racing subforum under 1/32 Model Racing.

 

I'll be moving the threads that previously existed in the one Proxy Racing subforum to the appropriate new subforums during the day today. If I move a thread to the wrong subforum, jump in and let me know please!
