Now that you guys have misters in and are running more through the summer is there a new go to tire or what are guys running up there for tires? A few suggestions on what are popular will help steer me in the right direction and help others that will attend this race.

Thanks.

I have been having really good luck with M4 Suburbs lately, but really any tire similar to that will work just fine, SS Rattlers, Bar Codes etc. I will be doing some testing later this month after the TNS Race. Since we will be "revamping" the layout and repacking the racing surface I want to see how it will work with the same tires we have been using. Stay tuned..

You will be fine with the Panther Rattlers in SS with the orange inserts and the Panther fronts as well. Carlo has turned some of the fastest lap times that we have seen using the rattler rears.

Hey Guys

I am passing on this link to a lot of people who ask about tire options. Although I do believe the "preferred" tire may change as the track changes and the weather gets cooler. So I want to keep the tire conversation "live" and active as we get closer to the event. Not only for our racers who are coming out of town but also our store so we know what your using and having success with.

Thank you all who take the time to test tires and give your thoughts and feedback. Your the best!

Yeah misters are pretty awesome about keeping traction more consistant.

I will bring up my SS suite of tires then. I had good luck with golds (Panther not JC) last time I was up there so I will bring up some of those as well.

Thanks for all the replys guys! Can't wait to get up there again!

Hey guys

We have Fall Classic post cards at the shop. For anyone who has a good place to hang them, race track to give them out etc. Just ask the crew for your own stack.

Also, can someone post in those forums I linked above? We want to get those threads active again to increase our exposure.

We have a few who signed up on rcsignup already and 35 "going" on our Facebook event. That's good momentum for being so early. Please consider doing the same, there is no cost if you choose not to pay on rcsignup.

Thank you all!

Check it out guys. We are running the newest version of RCScoringPro and their new beta TrackSideTV software.

Many of you have see what it looks like in the pits, live racing data, upcoming race info, heat sheets etc. Now they have added practice times. See pic attached.

Oh and this is the second flat screen we are installing in our back pit room. So everyone will be able to see it that's pitting inside our building. We are still working on the best method to inform racers outside pitted on our closed front street.

Can't wait to see you all here!

Even when I flip the photo upside down in my phone it still shows upside down. Please help!

Fixed it by bringing the image into my computer and re-posted.

Hello All!

Check out some updated info:

2 new fun features have been added to the 2014 Exeter Hobbies Fall Classic.

A Concourse D'Elegance will be held prior to the first heats. Bring out your best lids and show them off. There will be 3 non racing judges to select the best of the best and a trophy will be given to top honors.

During the break before the mains we will have an r/c centipede race. The vehicles used will be the Exeter Hobbies rental Traxxas Slashes. 2 Slashes will be zip tied together, the rear Slash will have only motor power and the front Slash will only be able to steer. The last team standing wins. Cost is $20 per team ($10 per person), winner taking half the purse!

The track will be available for practice all day Friday for $10 and with your paid practice you are able to save your pit spot for Saturday. Racers remember to bring a table, canopy and extension cord if needed for over flow pit space which will be outside on our closed down street.

We are less than a month away! Facebook event has over 55 people "going" with 16 "maybes", and for a facebook "event" that is GREAT! I am hearing from racers as far as Nevada and Arizona are making the plans to come here. Several hobby shops on the west coast have been handing out our flyers and post cards with great interest in a central California event. Lets make history!

See you all soon!

Also

I noticed my links in the previous post to the other forums were broken. If any of you would like to help and say hello to racers in other areas who may be attending our event or maybe mention how much fun you had at other events, please post in either of these forums.

Some updates.

We are officially changing our track layout for the 2014 Fall Classic. We are doing a very deep till of our clay, something we have never done with large equipment before. This should ensure a great sticky surface for our upcoming event and a layout that will be challenging for all in attendance. Track is closed Oct. 13th-18th.

Also, we have just started to receive our goodies from our sponsors for this years race. If you attended the last fall classic you know we like to GIVE AWAY a lot of stuff! I will update you as more of this start to come in.

Pics of the Associated and RPM box of goodies!

Great news! UPDATE!

Confirmation on Ryan Dunford, Casper and Mathew Pages from TLR for our Fall Classic!

AmainHobbies, Rainman Hobby and several other tracks have been handing out flyers and we are hearing some great feedback including racers as far as NV and AZ. This is history in the making for central California indoor r/c racing!

Spread the word, prep your cars and lets have some fun!

Here is a pano of our new layout for our Fall Classic. The major tilling helped a lot with the conditions, clay is sticky and staying together. Check out the joker lane, which lane will you take?

Tire report coming later today.
