Thanks Gary, I found the rules on the NASTE site. I recall in the early days of NASTE, they had a class using using $2 cylindrical  motors from Radio Shack. They were slightly smaller than RC motors.

Bill; Yes the NASTE site has grown. A lot is going on in the slot car world here in the Northwest and NASTE captures most of it.

After today's race, I will report the event here ASAP. This will be the first race in quite awhile. Looking forward to it big time!

We had 14 racers show up yesterday ( 3-6-'21 ). I have a picture or two to post but I guess they are too big to post on this site. Too bad, I was looking forward to sharing with you all.

Ok, I found pictures of some of the cars that was in the race of 3-6-'21 that I think is small enough to put on this page.These are the Early Modified class.

Northwest True Scale Racers have a race this Saturday ( March 27, '21 ) at Springwater Raceway. Classes are TA2 for points and NASCAR as a back up race using Flexi chassis and Lexan bodies. I will give a report here soon after.

I got an email from Cheater that I need to give racer's last names or get deleted. I feel there is no need to give last names, it also might not be OK with the racers (I never checked ). I did not know about this rule. So with that I will not be making any more reports.

 

Sorry to say: goodbye...

Sorry to hear that, Howie. Shoot, I don't know the last names of half of the guys that I've raced with for years. It was several years before I learned Gearloose's real name.

PS: Cheater did delete my race report for not providing last names of the racers.

No, I actually only hid them from view. They're still there. Do you need copies?

Just add last names... Not nicknames... We don't know who Bubba is.

 

JMHO.

I think racer last names are appropriate. I do not understand why JB is against it. Perhaps it just does not seem friendly to him?
