​ The dungeon's first race of 2017 is January 7th. the track opens at 8am and the first race starts at 10 am. SHARP!

The first race is the Dungeon's own JK Indy car, Retro Hawk or Falcon-7 long shafts and hand out body, which this year is an open wheel Bentlee GTP, Yes there is such a body.

The second race, starting at 12:30 is the Retro flexi, long shaft hawk or falcon.

Our last race, GTP any stamped steel chassis, any non wing body, any sealed can throwaway motor. most racers use the Hawk-7

 

​ If you are coming for the first time, Pm me for some help with setup and directions.

 

​ Slot car parts available .

​ If you haven't raced in a long while, and can't even remember where you left your slot cars, Don't worry, here at the Dungeon  we have loner cars and controllers , and the best part is when you enter a race, some one else will put your car back on the track for you.

Looks like snow, ice, rain, below freezing temps and high winds could be a factor traveling to this race......

Please be careful and remember bridges ice before roads :wave:

I suggest we not freak out prematurely - let's wait until tomorrow and check the forecasts again.

Sometimes they over predict, other times under predict, and sometimes they are dead on the money correct.

 

Sounds like tire compound choices, eh Red ? :)

 Montgomery and south looks good, but Dallas and Miss Shirley may have trouble with the roads.

I don't have a lot of tire choices so I'm going to say more like trying to help someone with their gear ratio is when they don't know the tire size. :laugh2: Who else is coming?

:laugh2:  Red, sometimes I think you and I are the only people on the planet who get that.

 

I just checked the WX - I'm out. Lots of rain all day today here until midnight, then freezing temps with 18 MPH north winds about the time I'd be underway.

Perfect recipe for ice crashes. I could deslot before I even get to the end of the block :laugh2:

I heard last night that the storm was coming from Colorado. And that it might ice up the area from Atlanta to Birmingham. We got blue skies in NH today, but about a foot of snow on the ground. :good:
