Anyone coming to WCRC on Sunday 02/17 that might have a Reedy 21.5 FT to lend to me? Going to the Omaha TCS on Thursday and am one motor short, Reedy hasn't and won't get them to WCRC in time before I leave Thursday. Don't want to drive 7 hours+ to Omaha and not be able to run. Hate this only one motor rule when adequate supply is not guaranteed!
Any wheeler drivers care to share recommendations for front tires? Getting into 13.5 stock (starting with a B44.3 with converted 12mm hexes)
Super addicted to carpet offroad thanks to WCRC for all the help so far! Alan if you are out there, appreciate the guidance (and the pinion gear!) you've given to date...
Do you guys have any off road trophy races or special races coming up other then the point series?
Enduro Race Update I spoke with Eric this afternoon. Right now we're looking at Saturday March 16th. We'll figure out registration shortly but we will want registration as a team. GREAT NEWS - Tamiya USA is all about this race and is coming on board as a sponsor! We're working on the cost of the kit. Tamiya is also looking to see if they can replace some of the bodies in the kits so we can have multiple car types. We love Tamiya!
OK Peeps, we've been kicking around an idea for a couple weeks with Eric. What is the interest level in a team build enduro? Teams of 4 build a TT-02R (the one with adjustable links) in the morning and race it for 4 hours in the afternoon. Have to get the kits from Eric, we'll hand out bodies 1 week before - NO TC PAINT SCHEMES HAS TO BE A RACE CAR. You don't have to use all the stickers but put a little effort in it We run the motor and speedo from the kit as is, no screwing with the motor... Put in a servo, receiver and transponder and hammer down. Absolutely stock-out-of-the-box no hop up parts. we'll make sure we have some spares for commonly broken parts. who's interested? we'd like to get 10 - 12 cars. I'm thinking 1 lap qualifier for each teammate, lowest total time starts on pole.
Is there any word on the carpet all stars races yet?
Hey Guys, can you post up some pictures of the drivers stand. I am curious about the wheelchair portion. I was told you guys had it accessible and wanted to see it. I may come out to one of your bigger races sometime soon and wanted to know if it may be feasible. Thanks in advance, and it was great racing with you guys over the weekend. See you guys at MHIC next April or maybe the Hudy race in January.
Do MRT transponders work at WCRC? If not, what transponders can I use?
Who is racing stadium truck tonight?
