    Anyone know how to get a hold of Frank? I sent him an email today but could use a phone #. Please PM me if you have.

    Good fun and my 1/32 driving/building is still crap, maybe too many concussions. Looking forward to all the racing next week... Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday?, Sat and Sunday. Good thing i don't have a job...

        Hi Guys,

        ok, here we go. We decided to run the races first and then settle the Slot Outlaws callouts. So we had Slot it Group C's and Open Modifieds as the standard Friday night classes.

        Group C

        Dave - 183 6'
        Robert - 178 44'
        Glen - 176 46'
        Mike - 174 45'
        Gabriel - 170 18'
        Sal - 154 77'
        Harald - 132 45'

        Fast Laps

        Dave - 6.149 (P)
        Robert - 6.439 (G)
        Glen - 6.247 (G)
        Mike - 6.583 (B)
        Gabriel - 6.603 (R)
        Sal - 7.002 (G)
        Harald - 7.296 (P)

        Open Modifieds

        Glen - 188 22'
        Dave - 184 10'
        Mike - 181 58'
        Robert - 178 6'
        Gabriel - 170 41'

        Harald - 138 76'

        Fast Laps

        Glen - 6.133 (G)
        Dave - 6.146 (P)
        Mike - 6.293 (G)
        Robert - 6.364 (R)
        Gabriel - 6.575 (G)
        Sal - 6.761 (G)
        Harald - 7.167 (P)

        Well done Gents! It was nice to have Robert back out again. 2nd place in the Group C race after so much time away is a fantastic result.

        We also had a first time racer out last night. Harald did just fine in the races and gained some valuable track time in the process. Come on back out anytime Harald!!

        Another fun filled night of racing and laughs. Slot car racing is too much fun! See you all tomorrow for the 24th scale sprint program.

        Anyone up for 917's/512's? My 917 is freshly rebuilt!!!

          Hey

          Hey Guys,
          !/32 scale racing........., Thinking of joining you guys on Friday, what is the popular choice of tires????? And most common motor used in the modified?

            Silicones usually work best. And the track doesn't need a lot of motor. For the most part inline set ups with less than 25,000 rpm handle best. If you look at the times from the races you'll see that the Group C cars times aren't a whole lot off the Open class.

                  Ben - 6.245 (R)
                  Steve - 6.250 (R)
                  Dave - 6.117 (B)
                  Ravi - 6.324 (G)
                  GC - 6.353 (B)
                  Mike H - 6.596 (R)
                  Bill D - 6.502 (B)

                  Chad - 7.540 (R)
                  Gabriel - 6.451 (G) (DQ Changed Cars)

                  Well done guys. Look at the fast laps for the top 5 cars.......it was anyones race. We had a First time racer Chad out last night. He started to figure out the track and had a lot of fun in the process.

                  Ben is also another notable result. 2nd place!!! Well done Benny!

                  Now onto the Mod Race. We ran Slot Outlaws in between the races and it took a while so we lost a few racers for the mod race. 8 lines up to run for the Win in a shortened heat race.

                  Open Modifieds

                  Steve - 95 60'
                  GC - 92 71'
                  Mike H - 89 42'
                  Dave - 88 77'
                  John B - 88 32'
                  Ravi - 86 74'
                  Bill D - 86 72'
                  Gabriel - 83 72'

                  Fast Laps

                  Steve - 6.949 (G)
                  GC - 6.292 (P)
                  Mike H - 6.402 (G)
                  Dave - 6.413 (B)
                  John B - 6.475 (G)
                  Ravi - 6.573 (P)
                  Bill D - 6.353 (G)
                  Gabriel - 6.775 (G)

                  Steve was back out in Full Force last night. A Win in the Mod race brought him right back up to speed!

                  Gabriel finished last but did so with his Carrera Nationals car......basically a Stock Carrera Aston Martin. He also laid down a 6.775 on Green!!! That is a FAST Lap for a Stock Carrera Car. This is your benchmark Gentleman.

                  Good Fun and Thanks to everyone that came out.

                    Here is how 32nd scale Race Night turned out.........

                    Slot it Group C

                    Glen - 184 73'
                    Dave - 179 61'
                    Steve - 179 46'
                    Bill D - 173 28'

                    Tim - 167 50'
                    Lewis - 136 71'

                    Fast Laps

                    Glen - 6.106 (G)
                    Dave - 6.193 (P)
                    Steve - 6.288 (G)
                    Bill D - 6.314 (G)
                    Mike H - 6.554 (B)
                    GC - 6.399 (P)
                    Tony - 6.525 (P)
                    Tim - 6.408 (G)
                    Lewis - 7.003 (G)

                    Glen bagged the Win. He set a killer fast lap as well!

                    Dave beat out Steve.........well done Dave!

                    Steve was on the podium and keenly focused on "The List".

                    Now onto Open Mods........

                    Open Modifieds

                    Glen - 182 4'
                    Steve - 182 30'
                    Bill D - 177 32'
                    Mike H - 176 34'
                    GC - 176 33'
                    Tim - 169 33'
                    Tony - 169 20'
                    Dave - 160 12'
                    Lewis - 145 31'

                    Fast Laps

                    Glen - 6.312 (G)
                    Steve - 6.137 (G)
                    Bill D - 6.272 (R)
                    Mike H - 6.364 (G)
                    GC - 6.239 (G)

                    Tim - 6.698 (B)
                    Dave - 6.848 (R)
                    Lewis - 6.787 (G)

                    Looks like the Stock Class cars are faster than Open Mods!!! You guys all need slower motors!

                    Tim ran his Carrera Nats car and hit a 6.698 with it!!! This is our new benchmark. Looks like T&T racing will be a contender!

                    The 24th Scale Report should be up later today.........

                      Hi Guys,

                      A nice relaxed evening of 32nd scale racing was on the agenda. Fun was had by all. We even had a first time racer out, Roger did just fine. Here are the results.......

                      Slot it Group C

                      Dave - 184 75'
                      Ravi - 184 63'
                      Steve - 184 57'
                      Bill D - 179 10'
                      GC - 179 33'
                      Robert - 178 67'
                      Sal - 155 35'
                      Roger - 151 31'

                      Fast Laps

                      Dave - 6.100 (G)
                      Ravi - 6.211 (R)
                      Steve - 6.096 (G)
                      Bill D - 6.217 (R)
                      GC - 6.375 (G)
                      Robert - 6.352 (W)
                      Sal - 6.730 (R)
                      Roger - 7.119 (P)

                      Dave got the WIN!!! Ravi was second and they both bested Steve! A great run by all 3 podium finishers.

                      Even the 4th to 6th place spots were within 40' of each other.

                      Very close competitive racing, nicely done guys.

                      Now onto Open Mods.

                      Open Modifieds

                      Steve - 189 13'
                      Dave - 186 71'
                      GC - 183 42'
                      Bill D - 178 72'
                      Robert - 173 5'
                      Ravi - 155 1'
                      Roger - 153 76'
                      Sal - 148 11'

                      Fast Laps

                      Steve - 6.075 (B)
                      Dave - 6.100 (B)
                      GC - 6.084 (G)
                      Bill D - 6.230 (R)
                      Robert - 6.344 (P)
                      Ravi - 7.180 (R)
                      Roger - 6.819 (B)
                      Sal - 6.398 (W)

                      Steve redeemed himself a little with a convincing Win.

                      Dave was firmly in second with GC about a few laps back in 3rd.

                      Roger beat out Sal who claimed the basement for this race.

                      Good Fun Guys. Thanks to everyone that comes out on Friday Nights to race. The 32nd Scale Race program is going strong and I expect it to stay that way until the end of April.

                      See you guys all today for the big cars and Don't Forget, The Carrera Canadian Nationals are next weekend, Saturday March 26th. Don't miss what will be our Biggest Slot Car Race of the Season!!!!

                              Hi Guys,

                              The first race night of the season is this coming Friday night.....Sept 30.

                              Come one, Come all, Bring your 1/32nd Scale cars........it will be 2 races of Open Modifieds so everyone can blow the dust off a couple cars.

                              Racing starts at 7:30pm, The Store Opens at 2pm. Normal business hours for the Winter Season start Friday afternoon.

                              I can't wait to get some slot car racing in, I hope to see everyone out.

                                Hi Guy,

                                I have landed a Slot it order with ALL the new stuff on it.......... Slot it/Policar F40 anyone?



                                and a pic from last weekend........We finished 2nd overall and got a Race 2 Win. It was an excellent race season with bitter sweet tones as it will be a LONG time before we go out again.



                                I hope to see everyone out on Friday night.
