Just to confirm the obvious James--GT12 and Euro will be on the Flat Track---all others to be run on the King?  Sounds like a lot of FUN!!

James-

Can we have the flat track slots cleaned and vacuumed? I recall a euro race some years ago where there were multiple motor (magnet) failures due to pins and other metal being picked up from the slot and destroying the motor. I plan on running both GT12 and E24, but will not run good euro motors on a bad track. FUN!!!!!


So much DRAMA for such small cars....

Yes Tim fri night races are on flat track and Saturday's are on king. They do race euros on kings in Europe and are doing 2.0 lap times with them lol.
Mike I'll talk to Debbie and see what they're willing to do.

Would be nice to use the PS 4002FK for this race. Use it as a warm-up for the Nats at Frank's. Will be quite a few of us going. It only 14 bucks for the motor and you could get Pro Slot to get us hand-out motors for the race. Would be nice.

It's NOT a USRA race!  We run ISRA rules in Euro---GT 12 will also allow Cahoza setups that USRA has banned.  Group F as it was started at BPR has always run the Retro Hawk and MOST of those racers have a load of those motors!! NO ONE runs the 4002 at BPR---and the Retro Hawk is used in lot's of class's including SCRRA.  Why force the majority to buy new motors for one race?  Doesn't make economic sense! I know Jason has plenty of Retro Hawks too-- :)

It is a USRA Race when we run on the King and that is what this is all about and still the B/S over 14 bucks and would be less if it's a Handout. Quit Talking about ISRA  rules when we are talking about a King race Thanks You

P.S I went to the Track last weekend a Talked to 6 of 10 the Regulars that race the class and they were all for it

As you KNOW Jason---it's never about buying ONE motor!! Anyone that want's to compete will need to buy 2-3 minimum--so now their buying $40 worth of motors that are only good for one race?  Gee--sounds like a great idea!! Yeah-- a complete new motor program for one class--what fun! :)  Besides, the race organizer has already announced running the Retro Hawk!

See you still not getting the point we had 13 race last year I think of those I would say 9 may go to the Nat's and those people will need Practice motors and with handouts it would be 3 motors 30 bucks and thing still could be changed if people will speak up at the CPC just talk to James

Tim, 2017 Nats are in California this year so I guess 9 racers is do-able.

Tim has a closed mind...he lives in the world of BPR...LOL

and he doesn't even run the class. I had originally planed on running F since I'm coming out to Long Beach that weekend, but because of the motor/rules choice, my fleet of F cars will be staying home

Tim when you do Hand out at the Races the Motors to the Racer are always cheaper R/H so

should be 10$ at the CPC just like these would be  and with this the Track will so buck because we all will have to buy them to race 

 

Jason

 

Last Time the  Nats were at Franks we had over 20  for the Scale it's close to home so we will go a great time will be had
