    Coverage of the Chicago 24

    Well we have a wireless! I'm not certain about a live broadcast but I'll have photos and video from the race as time permits.

    Practice is now.

    Format for 24 Hour Races

    I would be very interested in hearing about the latest 24 hour Race and how exactly it was run.

    Was this a 24 Hour race in the true sense of the words, the cars ran for 24 hours continual running.
    Was there a dark segment like a real 24 hour race.
    Was the 24 hours a 24 hours of the clock or was time stopped for track or other issues.

    I find 24 hour racing, and Endurance racing in general a fun form of Slot car racing. I personally think in a 24 hour race the clock should continue to run and the only stoppage should be for track or Scoring problems, but like real Endurance racing the time should continue.
    Curious to see how this latest 24 hour record was set.


    Also what type of tires were used and if rubber tires how many?

    How many and which motors were used.

    I am still waiting to get the Slot.it motors back from the Chicago 24 Hour to test wear on them and to see what problems occurred to those that were changed.

    Congratulations on a New 24 Hour Record, very interested to hear more especially if it replicated a real 24 Hour race with darkness and a continual clock.

    Hey Dickie, A little skin would have been a credit compared to the little apron you had on in Slotboy #3!

    I thought he DID ask. Nobody in the back row is wearing any pants.

    Jeff, your 1/24 roots are showing! *grin*
    Hey, 1/24th scale racers don't need no stinkin' lights! We just hold the trigger down and watch the lap counter.

    That's exactly it, John. Once the driver finds the corner, he drives a safe speed instead of trying to adjust for every little thing that the car is doing.

    Every time we've turned off the lights with drivers who had trouble with my track, they suddenly stopped wrecking.

    We race in the dark all the time at the old club, I did pretty well believe it or not.

    Hey Dave, next time just close your eyes to simulate night racing. And be sure to stand on your stool.
    Let us know the results.
