Race Wednesday July 13th
« on: July 10, 2016, 10:05:36 PM »
We had our very first full race evening last week.  Three qualifiers and racing was done by 9:30pm.  New track record was set of 21.5 seconds. Then Chris Gruver broke the record again at Friday's practice... 21.4.  Who's going to beat that?

Who's in for Wednesday?

Buggies for me however I'm going to get my 4wd SC ready since there was a lot of interest after seeing John's slash with sounds doing laps between heats. It does sound fast.  :D bring out those SC's!

PS.  If you can't make it Wednesday, we have our first weekend race this Sunday July 17th.  Hope you can make it  http://www.rcottawa.com/forum/index.php?topic=19505.0

Good choice Joel.

Last week I was away on Vacation and came back to a really dry track.   The issue with being dry is that the track crumbles.   >:(  We had a jump that broke apart, it caused some people to crash on that double during the main.   :-[
I fixed that issue and touched up a couple other spots on Thursday and it held together for practice on Friday.   :)

I've been keeping the track watered at night.  Going to tarp some sections after watering tonight.  Should be good after I water tomorrow when I get home from work.

Also I have been working on improving the lighting on the track by adding a couple more.   I've also moved some extension cords to other circuits and learned quickly that I have all kinds of different Amperage fuse breakers at my house.  Fun.   Ideally I should get an electrician in to add a new outlet to my pool shed so that we no longer have to run super long extension cords.

I'm going to try to be home for 4pm to water, track should be ready for 5pm practice.

Hey Shawn, check the wattage of your lights. You should be able to run 6 X 250 watt lights off one 15 amp "empty" circuit, or 3 X 500 watt lights. Check the bulb themselves not just the sticker on the light, just in case they were changed.
We installed 2 new 20 amp circuits in the shop and are running 4 X 500 watt lights off each circuit with no problem. That's what our on staff (my dad)  electrician did...lol!!
