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...

Tim

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'
Sal - 153 38'
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!!!

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.

Hi Guys,

What a Great turnout last night! We had 12 racers out! Here is how it all went down.

Slot it Group C

Glen - 186 72'
Ben - 182 24'
Steve - 180 70'
Dave - 179 77'
Ravi - 179 73'
GC - 177 71'
Mike H - 170 42'
Bill D - 170 12'
Frank - 144 74'
Ryan - 139 8'
Chad - 113 1'
Gabriel - 163 72' (DQ Changed Cars)

Fast Laps

Glen - 6.201 (R)
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)
Frank - 7.012 (B)
Ryan - 6.949 (G)
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.

Hi Guys,

I'm a little behind in the Race Reports. I should have posted last Sundays 24th Scale Report but this will go up first.........hopefully I have some time to post the 24th Report later today.

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'
Mike H - 172 57'
GC - 172 32'
Tony - 171 71'
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)
Tony - 6.732 (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.........

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'

Bill D - 178 72'

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 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.
