NYE race 2012

Post  Jessechop on Fri Oct 26, 2012 9:30 am

There has allready been alot of talk about the NYE race for this year. So far I have:

Egg race
Lights out - oval and offroad. NOT FULL OFF ROAD!! Razz
Reverse race
Cone race
1/2 oval
100 lap pan car open. As long as it is a solid rear axle pan car it is in

Other than that throw ideas out there.

One question is do we do it on the 30th or the 31st

How about a teeter totter event? What is that you say?
you take a 24" board wide enough for a RC car to fit on you put a small piece of pipe under the center of the board. Then you drive your car /truck onto the board and try to balance it.

It has been brought forth a idea to run a vintage off road.

Vinatge off road- must be 20 years old or older.
must be as close to stock as possible- i.e. no aftermarket chassis, no
updated shocks, etc.
Must run a vintage type tire, no fuzzies, bar codes, etc.
NO BRUSHLESS
Mechanical speed control +1 lap
Period correct esc, i.e. Novak 410-M5, Futaba MC210CB, etc +1/2 lap
Period correct radio +1 lap
Period correct stick radio +2 laps
Nicad +2 laps
Nimh +1 lap

Oldest car starts up front and drops back from there. Judge (me) reserves the right to add or subtract laps based on cool factor, and vintage factor. Vintage team wear from the 80's will gain points. ETC.

As you can tell this is about fun. If you are too caught up in it to not have fun, stay home!

A little bird told me that Jesse has bought or was paid to take a Traxxas truck that he found while digging arround in the depth of the Mad Scientist's labratory. It is reported that he proudly displayed his find and a picture was taken as evidance. Jesse has always been known to try to accomplish the impossible. Even he admitts that he may have bit off more than he can chew. Winning a vintage off road with that truck with out bending the rules might be a tall order.

Tim O. has thrown his hat in the ring and we all know that Tim owns the larges Associate Electric vintage Rc collection that anyone has seen in these parts. People are asking what am I going to do? I seem to have some compeditive old Tamiyas and Kyoshos in my arsenal. I have an old Frog that is just like the first RC car that Ray Vogle owned which I might sponsor him for the race.

Everyone needs to dig deep and find your first off road vehicle that you raced and join us for the bragging right to having the most original and best vintage RC car raced New Year's Eve fun run.

On the vintage racing, there seems to be a fair amount of intrest. If enough people show we car run a Buggy class, Pro Truck and or Monster Truck class. if it is old, bring it! We will find a place for it

Also, there is a sheet on the wall above my pit. If you have a idea for a race, food, entertainment, penquin clubbing or otherwise write it down on that paper! No promises, but if it is on there it has a better chance of happening. A full schedule will be available before the next race

I would think having the race on Sunday the 30th would be better. There may be some people have to work Monday. Have we decided on start time for NYE race? If we race the 31st the timing may have to be adjusted.
