its unrelated, but i've been scheming and dreaming of just TRYING this type of thing, JUST ONCE to see how it would go.

How about an open track, 10 drivers on the stand max., marshalling duties to follow your run... you have 3 minutes to get your absolute fastest lap down. Of course, there has to be some warmup procedure figured out to get motors to temp, otherwise it would be a bugger to get a tune going. You would almost have to have a warmup area, like an oval or something.
Sessions would be shorter by far, so having three or maybe even four of these rounds in one day might be doable.. or maybe even more at a small venue.
Is there any scoring software that can support such a venture? Maybe we can convince someone to give it a try.

the rc scoring pro software that i think all events are being run with have this built in, the organiser only needs to know how to set it up, pretty easy and i am sure the glorcs guys will help as needed, maybe put toogether a quick set up guide for the event organisers regarding timing and scoring

yes please.
i also just started a thread with some tuning tips in the hopes to get open discussions going to help anyone interested in reading it.
I would also love to see driving technique discussed. I know very little about it, but with anything, technique is ALWAYS the difference between average and above average, no matter how well you drive without that knowledge.

Although 'newbies' are more prone to bumpin' each other, sooooome of us are already well on our way to driving in better mains, and just because the track owner/organizer doesn't know us, he shouldn't just assume we can't drive competitively...and cleanly.

As an example, I'm certain that if I 'lucked out' and got a solid qualifying field, I would place better by the re-sort. I KNOW that if I was racing with Parent, Endler, Henry, Flegel, Devries, etc, I would NOT be interfering with their run. I respect the better driver, and would gladly announce my intentions to let them through.

There will be MUCH arguments over this topic, but I have to take the position of 'newbie who can drive' on this topic.

Regardless...I LOVE RACING!!!

There is a expert bump and run driver on here. He's so good you apologise for getting in his way. LOL!

If everyone raced like they would like to be raced. That would help. Unless you like being punted all around the track.
