  • Teching done by Chris

    AL,
    I believe that Your Teamate, Chris did tech and he Failed Ron on two different "C" cars before he allowed one of his cars in.

      • Thanks

        Thanks (as always) to those that do the work, so we can enjoy racing at Ace Hobby.

        Computer work (race set up, and results print out).
        Writing & posting the race results.
        Teching the cars. (It is hard to be able to look over all of the classes, trying to ensure that we are all within the specifications.) Remember: "Don't "shoot the messenger".)

        Of course, thanks to Ron, for supplying the track.
        [Where records are being set almost weekly! Good driving / building, racers!]

              • News to when RAA cars are coming.

                Earlier this year, I sent "Redlynr", the guy who is running the RAA Proxy races this year, a private Email inquiring if he had some sort of schedule that he wanted to reveal to us uneducated masses or toward that effect and he replyed that the schedule was basically by the seat of his pants and by how often he was in contact with any of the people running the tracks, and he asked if we at Ace had any preference as to when when would like to host. I replyed that Yellow Dog Raceway at Ace Hobbies would be happy to host it at any time but that we would request that he try to notify us two or three weeks prior the shipping the cars to Ace Hobbies, so that all the racers who wanted to be here could make the necessary arrangements. Yesterday I recieved an Email from "Redlynr" saying that it looked like that Ace Hobbies would be shipped the cars after the NEXT race which would be Race #4 for the RAA, Ace Hobbies would be Race #5. He mentioned that Nick of Supertires would be interested in the cars as well of all the racers. He had mentioned that he had already gotten information from Dan as to where to send the cars to. He said there is no real rush to try to complete the racind quickly as they who series is ahead of the schedule due to a couple of the tracks dropping because of other problems. Thats about all I know.

                  • Lucky Number 13

                    It is always nice to look back, once in a while, and see how things have progressed over the years.

                    This summer marks an anniversary.
                    Thirteen years ago (summer of 2002) Nick Laratonda started work on the 1/32 scale size, of what later would be called, “Super Tires”. Prior to that (spring of 1995), Nick had begun manufacturing H.O. scale tires.

                    In 2002, Ace Hobby was a major test center for the development of 1/32 Super Tires, and continues to be, currently.
                    Then, beginning in 2003, Ace Hobby (Ron), became the first place to sell 1/32 [silicon] Super Tires.

                    Years later, this cycle repeated, for Nick’s development of 1/32 urethane tires. Yellow Dog [urethane] Super Tires were named after Ace’s primary test driver, Dan (Yellow Dog) O’Grady.

                    Many slot car racers world wide are faster, through the use of the tires that were trademarked in 2007, and known internationally as, Super Tires. Ace had a role in that.

                    Ace Hobby would like to thank Nick for his support, sponsorship of race events, raffles, etc., over all these years. Many Ace Hobby slot car drivers, of all ages, have been the recipient of prizes donated by Super Tires.

                    Happy Anniversary!

                      • Race report for Friday August 2, 2015

                        I wasn't in attendance for this last Friday's race, but it didn't get reported because none of the other Ace Hobbies reporters were not in attendance themselves and I'm the only one who came today Monday August 4. The results were written on the scoring sheet, so here it goes. there was a new record set for the LMP Class, I'm not sure of the other classes.


                        First race as usual was Group C cars
                        was Russ with 75.55 laps

                          • Reminder on long standing rules

                            As verbally discussed in driver's meetings at Ace Hobby, on 8/7 & 8/10/15...


                            A reminder on long standing rules (in chronological order as in the original rules on Page #1 & #2, of this thread).


                            1. "Rear. Any wheel & silicon tire sold at Ace Hobby." Ace sells Super Tires, and Slot-It S1's & S2"s. This is mostly to protect the track. Non-silicon tires wear, and leave much more debris behind. Also, to ensure that all drivers have equal access to tires. Years ago, before this rule, there were a few drivers that had tires that were no longer available (original Ortmann tires); and no one else could run competitively with them.


                            2. "Front. Any wheel & tire sold at Ace Hobby. May not be glued, painted, etc., to reduce traction. All tires may be trued, and or glued." Stock front tires are fine, they come with the cars sold at Ace Hobby. Ace sells: Zero Grip's (Super Tire, & Slot-It), Yellow Dog's, silicon, and replacement stock rubber tires; suitable for front tire use. Front tires made of plastic, deldrin, nylon, or similar substances, are not appropriate.


                            3. "All bodies must ... have at least 3 racing numbers. Sponsor decals would be nice, too."
                            Scale model racing is what 1/32 scale slot cars are all about. Real life race cars are required to have racing numbers, so are our scale model race cars. A newly built, or purchased car, will be allowed one race without 3 racing numbers.


                            4. "Wings must be present when tech'ed." Again, scale model racing. Real cars have wings.
                            It would be nice if the wing resembled the stock height and configuration.


                            5. "All cars passing tech. will be placed in the pit box and may not be removed before the rotation begins."


                            6. "Every attempt will be made to keep this class, and all classes, competitive, so that close racing continues (which seems to make it fun for most drivers)."

                            Tom


                            “You can please some of the people all of the time, you can please all of the people some of the time, but you can’t please all of the people all of the time”.”
