RACEDAY Wednesday June 29th, 6:30pm
« on: June 23, 2016, 07:42:08 PM »
Who's in for racing on real dirt?  Ya, the carpet was fun but it's time to play outside! 

I'm in for 2wd and maybe 4wd, depending on Mr. Postman.

FYI
Sugar was added to the track last night.  Let's see if that gives us more traction  :D

Wednesday's forecast is looking good

Two hours later update:
Wow. I ran Dirt Webs this afternoon... amazing traction now.

Bring out the Barcodes and Electrons!!!    ;D   8)

In for 4wd buggy and e-buggy.

...and if you're coming out racing, bring a yard brush!  A swept track is a fast track!

Due to the rain last night.  Practice for today is cancelled.  Also the Practice schedule has been updated to Friday's only starting July 8th.


The Weather Forecast for this Wednesday has a 60% chance of thunder showers and a bit of rain over night Tuesday.

If it rains and or will be too wet, the race might be rescheduled to Thursday! (I have chatted with Kirk of the West End racing and he is ok with it too  :) )

It's race day.

Didn't get hit with much rain last night. Just enough to get rid of any dryness.

I walked the track just now,  we will have ideal conditions tonight!

Practice starts at 4pm.

Who's in?

No rain in forecast.  It showed 20% pop 0mm of rain. 23 degrees sunny feels like 26.

Conditions are perfect.  Traction is it's best ever. 40 lbs of sugar was spread at noon. It's dry now and ready at 4pm for practice

Was a nice evening, the weather cooperated - not a single drop of rain all day.

A couple more racers came to join in this week.  Nice to see Limlaw and Kennedy bring there 4wd's so we could run the class this week.

Wasn't a clean start since we are AMB noobs and it took us some time to figure it out but we got the qualifiers done.   We also had a electrical breaker go out when my wife turned on the TV in the house.  LOL   Lesson learned to not use that plug.  Issue resolved.  Lights worked perfectly after this change, but a couple more lights should be added for better visibility in the middle of the track.

Traction seemed better then last week. The track seems to have a good base now.  But we don't think the sugar had enough time to bake on the track.
Sweeping before a race made a huge difference on traction and what tire can be used.

We had some racers leave when we wanted to start the mains therefore we didn't have enough for marshals therefore we called it for practice time.

TQ's and podium finish after qualifying:

4wd buggy:
1st Joe Limlaw
2nd Shawn Fraser
3rd Noah Connell

2wd buggy:
1st Daragh Slowey
2nd Richard Tardiff
3rd Pascal Burelle

E-buggy
1st Noah Connell
2nd Shawn Fraser
3rd Chris Gruver


That was fun... lets do it again next week.   ;)   :D

Was all in the 22's.   I don't think your record of 21.7 with Chris's Super Lite has been broken yet.

I couldn't get the Result Analyser working because the IP was wrong.  Every time I tried to open ipconfig.exe it would close right away... I will have to talk to Matt Stacey.
