No New Posts Handicap racing

Establishing a racing handicap for each racer. This handicap would be used only for a race designated as a handicap race.
For example, we could designate the 80's NASCAR class as a handicap race only.
The podium would be for the three highest lap totals using their handicap.

Welcome to Shoutbox. Post your viewpoints here, but keep your posts civil.
bob krigbaum: Well if I had read this before 7PM on Sunday........ Jul 27, 2014 17:57:24 GMT -8
mkalelaw: Anyone up for some practice laps tomorrow afternoon at BP? Jul 26, 2014 19:10:27 GMT -8
bob krigbaum: Craig, what I was thinking was to use some .063 piano wire and attach it to your motor bracket or axle tube. Bond the wire to the plastic struts and solder to your brass, kind of like a jalopy bumper. Haven't tried it yet though. Jul 25, 2014 21:49:57 GMT -8
craigg: Some of the Grp C cars have the wing mounted on the tranny, anyone have a cunning plan to do this on a slot car? Jul 25, 2014 15:51:54 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: I posted a new thread above to discuss the possible race day schedule change. For those who race hardbodies at BPR, let's discuss this topic (above) to find out what's best. Jul 21, 2014 21:37:34 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: 3rd race of the day will be NASCARs which will start around 2:30 pm. If we have two NASCAR mains again, we should finish around 4:30 pm or so. I will post a new thread to discuss this potential revised race day schedule. Jul 21, 2014 21:13:03 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: Revised schedule may be: first race will be the "mixed" race (any hardbody class) starts at NOON sharp. Second race will be the combined race. Final race(s) will be NASCARs. If we start at noon and keep a tight schedule, the 3rd race of the day Jul 21, 2014 21:11:06 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: The larger turnout Sunday resulted in two NASCAR main races. This extended the race day somewhat and the last race finished around 6:20 pm. In order to finish earlier we are thinking of rearranging the race day schedule. Here's what we're thinking of: Jul 21, 2014 21:09:01 GMT -8
bob krigbaum: It pops great wheelies too, even with the 50 year old original rubber. I don't remember those things being that hard to drive back in the 60's, we ran them on a track with a giant bank and no glue! Jul 21, 2014 13:31:55 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: Bob had me take some laps with his Manta Ray. It's quite a challenge to drive a Manta Ray with a large 36D and lightweight chassis with hard rubber tires. It's easy to do 360's though. Jul 21, 2014 12:35:51 GMT -8
Michael Kale: Bob had an amazing race with 252 laps. Sorry I was not there to see it. Then I looked at the picture and saw him holding a Manta Ray and said no way that Manta Ray did that. Bob is always raising the bar. Nice Porsche. Jul 21, 2014 12:09:44 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: Bob Krigbaum set a new total lap record for hardbodies, 252 laps with his Porsche 962. That's one fast 962 and Bob drove an excellent race. Jul 21, 2014 11:53:35 GMT -8
bob krigbaum: Mr. Law went faster than ever today as well. Jul 20, 2014 20:44:36 GMT -8
mkalelaw: More good racing today. Great turnout. Jul 20, 2014 19:51:01 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: Join in the fun this Sunday, July 20th at BPR. We have loaner cars for those who are interested in racing hardbodies. Jul 18, 2014 8:29:42 GMT -8
timneja: Well I'm building another GTP style hard body car with the NEWMAN Tamiya 956 Porsche I picked up last Sunday. I'll post some pics tomorrow of the build when it's done! Jul 17, 2014 16:35:25 GMT -8
mkalelaw: Working on my cars for Sunday. Can't rely on Keith's building skills. Looking forward to it. Jul 14, 2014 18:33:59 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: A reminder that the kit collector's show is this Sunday, July 13th. The show opens at 9 am (until 3 pm). It's a great opportunity to find a lot of model kits at reasonable prices. Jul 10, 2014 9:46:57 GMT -8
Tim: Nah Keith---you ARE getting faster!!! Enjoy your new year!!! Jul 7, 2014 19:11:27 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: Thanks guys! I must be losing my mind since I think I go faster as I get older. Oh, just dreaming! Jul 6, 2014 20:15:58 GMT -8 *
