I would like to take this time to invite everyone to join us at Great Lakes ISRA.  We have NO ARGUING about motors, no stickers or seals.  :good:

We have simple rules & have been stable for 10 years.  We run 4 classes.  Usually run the first Saturday of the month.

 

JRL is our 1/24 open wheel class.  Most people run H&R chassis ($50 kit) there are a few Mack's & one FX.

We run single mag c can motors with Contender or Super Wasp arms.  Most run Red Fox, JK or Outtasight body's

 

Open 12 is open 1/24 chassis and Horkey is the chassis of choice.  There are also a lot of the $75 GT12 chassis being run.

Body is a LMP and we have a body list with a few choices.  Motor is a single mag C can X12.

 

1/24 ES is straight up ISRA rules.  Open chassis & motor.  Many running 2012 Horkey chassis or Macks.

 

B Production is our last class.  Stamped chassis, GT1 body's and motors are single mag C can Contender or Super Wasp.

 

Our simple rules are posted here. http://slotblog.net/...schedule-rules/

Also we have no clearance rule.  Simply nothing hanging below the chassis.

 

It's a great group of competitive guys to run with.  We run both Chicagoland & Mid America flat tracks one race a month.

 

So if you are tired of the arguing, drama, lottery ticket, sealed motor handcuffs & :dash2: about what type of break in procedure, magic snake oil, double zapped magnet motors will make your sealed motor .005 faster than the next guy when you are running on a micro blip track, why not give flat track racing a try.  You actually use the controller instead of the clicker box.  It took me 3 years (I'm a slow learner :crazy: ) before I thought I needed more motor.  There is a lot of great used equipment available to get you started and we do have a place for FK motors in JRL & B Prod. to help get you started.

 

I hope to see some new faces there that want the challenge of driving and racing.  Put stability and affordable FUN back into your :to_become_senile:  program instead of headaches.

 

Next race Chicagoland Feb 3 doors open at 7:30 see you there! :victory:

That's all right, Rob.

I know it kills you I'm nice to everyone but you.

On a different note, if you and your make-believe friends go to Uncle Bubs, you have to try the Fried Mac n' Cheese Balls. I had them yesterday and they were awesome.

Greg you & Big Ron have a great track.  I only wish I lived closer.  Anyone in the Pittsburg area should check it out.  Track was redone & close to flawless.  Fun layout & you won't find two nicer guys than Greg & Ron.

Rob, your 2nd paragraph in the 1st post was referring to the series when you mentioned stable for 10 years, right?

The Midwest Flat Track Series continues the FUN starting the season Nov 3, 2018. The ISRA classes and Enduros have a separate timeframe as well.
