There were a couple of lads running 1/10th electric on sunday, Althought the track has nothing to do with me i imagine that you would be ok to run. I'm sure someone will say ye or nay before thursday.

on a thursday night i dont see why not, other than you may get battered about a bit by some of the 1/8 cars

but obviously not on race days

Yes mate, they don't mind what you run at these practice days/evenings. I ran the 410r Durango on step pins and holeshots - it was awesome and on par with the 8th buggies for pace with a 6.5

I'd like to race electric there sometime. Not sure if they'll cater for that or not but it's well suited to 10th scales

jimmy's car was quite impresssive down the straight, well fast.

no problem with 10th running with 8th on the practice days.

would there be enough interest to run a "quiet" electric evening ??

also here's the latest practice day video, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xQ-SK5Opv_I

went down the other night just to have a look at the track it looks amazing looks a very tidy track would not mind trying my 1/10 electric buggy on it. Yes i think that there would be intrest for runnning a quiet electiric pratice or something like that.Iif weather ok next thursday going to pop down with my gear and give it a run. do you have to park in the Go car park or can you park in the field where the track is.

jimmy

for the evening practice's follow the hedge to the right which is the delivery road to the rear of the shop and through the overflow car park to get to the track.

:woot: track will now be open all thursday eve's through august :woot:

also short notice but due to a change of plans,anyone wants to come this sunday i will be there around 11 - 5.
i presume most of you racer boys will be at the national so if anyone who is not too confident to get on a track for the first time wants to come down, it may be one of our quieter days.
oh, and for a change we may run reverse to normal direction, had a go today and really enjoyed it.

I am reliably informed that this MMRX Wakefield track is NOT open on Sundays for the rest of August. I have seen a sign on the site and it says that the track will open ONLY on Thursday evenings from 5pm to 8pm. Must be holiday time!
It says to watch the web for September opening. If I see anything I'll post it here.

Well even though the track is mega miles away it looks ace!!!!!!!!!!! Thinking of coming up to the October 24th meeting as to be honest i really can't see why this track wouldn't have a national in 2011. My question is though, if you are still having practice evenings on a Thursday (the last one before that meeting would be 21st) would it at all be possible to pay to use the track on the Friday or the Saturday as well :bored: . Would like to try and possibly stay up there for a few days as it's a mega drive :o Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated.

chalky

Might be a nasty rumour, but I hear that Thursdays practice nights are a no-go now? Noise issues?

the entrance to the field is very boggy at the moment with all the rain we have had so we are letting it recover.

last sunday we were paintballing and this sunday is the last round of super moto at cadwell park which andy races in.

so dont panic:)

I will hopefully have an 8th electric buggy ready in the next 3 weeks. If i turn up on a Sunday meeting am i ok to race with the nitro guys or do you prefer to run electric only heats if enough turn up? It's my first time at 8th scale and I assume meetings follow a similar format to 10th, except for heat duration. Is this about right?

Richard Lowe
10-11-2010, 07:32 PM
The last time I was there electric's could run with the nitro's, the only issue was making 20 minutes if you could get to the A final. Qualifiers are 5 minutes + a bit of warmup time before, it's only the finals that are longer :)

Timee80
10-11-2010, 07:43 PM
That's what i was hoping to hear. It's unlikely ill need 20 minutes run time then. Especially as I've never even tried an 8th buggy. How long are the other finals?

footey
10-11-2010, 07:50 PM
10 mins i think poss 15 for b final

last time A main was 30mins, B final 15mins and C 10mins so even electric would need a pitstop for the A. i recon i could just about do 20mins on 1 pack without any warm up laps.
