    Evolution Hobbies 2013 outdoor offroad race season starts this Sunday April 28th!!

    Post by Evolution Hobbies on Thu Apr 04, 2013 3:28 pm

    My official opening day to the 2013 race season will be Sunday April 28th ,racing starts at 10am!!!weather permitting

    If i can get in 1 or 2 "preseason" races before the 28th ,i will do it.Work on the track will start soon.Snow is ALL gone but still very damp.Trying to get track ready by Saturday the 20th and maybe a race the next day Sunday the 21st.
    I will post here to let you know if we will be running early.

    So get your stuff ready its time to race!!
    No race fee increase,same prices as last season.
    Also racers should own there own AMB/MYLAPS transponders. "Clone" transponders like PTX/MTX brands will no longer work here .I have updated to the new RC4 firmware in my decoder and clone transponders will not work correctly with the new update.

    I went over and looked at it today. It was actually in much better shape than I thought it would be. Only a couple wet spots and it was really just surface puddles not deep mud. Heath was running some laps with his daughters SC10.

    We did get one preseason race in last Sunday ,great turnout for that 44 entries.

    Again please have your transponder(s) written at the time of registration.NO clone transponders.

    sean, was thinking the only thing that would make for a better& safer time would be removing or covering with clay,"to eliminate such drastic change in pitch,of the 2 wooden tables on the back stretch, the transitions are to steep and i have watched all types of vehicles having issues handling the change in pitch from clay to wood of the face of these jumps. any other thoughts, or opinions on this one?

    They will be covered soon with astro turf or similar carpet to help with traction .Thats should solve that issue Luke .I still have some CRC carpet from when we had our indoor carpet track.thats considered indoor/outdoor carpet.I may use that but i have to see if i have enough to cover the jump.

    :cheers:Another awesome opening day Sean! Hopefully I can come out a lot more this season to race. Once I get a bigger tank on my Ten-Sct, maybe I'll be able to finish a heat!! BTW, I still owe you for 3rd class. Have to settle up next time. Weather gods look to be on our side again this Sunday! Thanks Doug.
