I really enjoyed the day, as did my friend (was his first RCrace) loved the two sided tracks electric/nitro awesome layouts too, no blind spots. I'm curious to wonder why the rules weren't enforced though!? meaning the stop and goes... I too was victimized several times my the Bmain truggy. I was going threw the back section and was hit 6 or 7 times on that lap and fell back to last Even a racer drove the wrong way on the straight and hit him. The 10min main didn't give me enough time the claw my way through the pack! I know we are there to have fun but why have rules if they are not enforced? I managed to finish 3rd after the bumps.

I have a couple question about the points...
How are to points awarded?
Does everyone who finishes get points or only the podium finishers? and
Where can we see our points when issued?

you know what? there is no question having more than one announcer would help but there are still drivers that race so far out of control, and yesterday's buggy A Main proved it, they are barely staying out of their own way. To ask them to get out of the racing line and let a faster car through and get clear, is not in their ablility to comprehend.

there is a huge difference between going fast and being a fast racer.

For the past couple years I have been so wrapped up in kids and work that it has seemed the only race I have made is my own! So it was really nice to get out and do some racing.

Many have joked that I marketed my self a position to getting a Losi drive rather than using my driving ability like the rest of the team. So I was super stocked to have made the A MAIN in both classes I entered.

Mat your wife, is a great cook, helps you run the races and lets you play with RC toys so what ever you do don't screw it up, you are a lucky guy!

Thanks to the whole family for running a great day of racing!

Well said mate! Well said!!!

The reason the "top guys" are "top guys" is due largely in part to their ability to drive BUT also due to their ability to remain consistent, and not get marshaled.

Watch theeeeeese guys drive, and you'll see a level of respect (to other drivers) that you just don't see in other levels. They understand that they may as well let the faster guy go, and follow a bit behind waiting like a prowling cat, for the guy to crack under the pressure of being followed.

"Great" drivers (and we all know who they are) are the masters of picking and choosing their spots. You don't always have to go for the pass. Sometimes IT comes to you!

i watched Bob Flegel move out of Dave Henry's way in the truggy A main yesterday WELL BEFORE Dave was even close to him. R E S P E C T!!! Point here is simple... When Bob has a better day than Dave one day, now Dave will do the same, and so on...and so on...and so on...

Enough said, and to all the "top guys" out there...sure you agree?

agreed, being able to go fast on your own and in traffic are two very different things, bob is one of a group who are able to keep a clear head on their shoulders during finals and keep aware of who is around them, it is way more fun to race with racers that know who to race hard and clean and who to let go, remember guys race others the way you would like to be raced

Forsure a few guys ran out of talent early in the buggy main it happens but grabing more throttle to try and make up for it just would work. And hope they figure it out sooner or later. But its early in the season and the racing will get clean as the week go on , it happen the same was as last year , all is good , Dave , George and myself had a great battle for most the race and i would like to thank them for racing me clean , since that was the same way I was racing. With a lap and a half to go, we were all within 2 sec of eachother and racing eachother clean and it was a BLAST . Thanks again and looking forward to another clean race with you 2 next weekend.

Ps George you might be a little to clean , some guys seen to take advantage of your clean driving,but then again its always nice to be know as a good sportsman and not a HACK

thanks guys, this was probally one of the funnest races I've run and probally one of my favorite track layouts ever, it wasn't too difficult, but you could easily over drive it and really slow your self down, having taken the year off I really had no expectations for my self and was just having fun, I just wish I could have run more than a couple laps in the buggy B before getting broken, I think I could have given you guys a run,

rc pro race

Hey Matt thanks I had a great race with you Dave a Ben, clean racing as always between us. Other than the last 5min of the race it was okay for me, but the last five oh boy!. As for the clean racing I like to be treated the same but it doesn't happen all the time. See everybody at FTR. Loved the track Matt and the racing was great.

Thanks George s

I had a great time I really liked the layout. The MT a-main was a battle to the wire trying to shake off Jeff Heinmiller is like trying to get rid of that toilet paper stuck to your shoe. It ain't happening. Nice win Jeff!!! For a few the buggy a-main was a good example of ambition getting ahead of adhesion. Nuff said. Thank you Devries family for giving the RCPRO series a healthy start. Cheers.!!!
