    RE: USRA Giant Scale Racing 2013

    Hey Marty,

    I dug my Sundowner out of the shed today and will be test flying it tomorrow. Poor thing hasn't flown in at least 4 years. I was surprised it was still in one of my transmitters. If it flies OK I may be flying it at one of your events this year. Probably needs an engine upgrade though.

    Blessings, Terry

    RE: USRA Giant Scale Racing 2013

    Terry,
    as far as I know there should be a 3 Sundowners at Rabbit. And the bonus is, if you want you can choose to enter it in the new Sportsman Class. The key will be getting it up to speeds of 140- 150 MPH to hit the 2:00 break out.
    Im thinking a YS170 would do the trick!

    RE: USRA Giant Scale Racing 2013

    Maybe you guys should think about losing the prop restriction on the Mark/Moki 2.1. I know there was reason for that in the beginning, but now that the YS 1.70 is dominating the field, that prop restriction doesn't really make sense.

    I agree 100%. My vote is and always has been to do that exact change for the Moki.

    RE: USRA Giant Scale Racing 2013

    This weekend is the first leg of the Giant Scale Pylon Air races in Arizona. The town of Flagstaff, Az is host to the USRA racers. Tech day is thursday with practice as well. Racing starts on Fri around 9:00 AM. Sat is same schedule. A hopeful one round dash on Sunday and then the always spectacular Trophy races as well.
    Classes being run are Unlimited, F! Pro, F1 GT, 50cc Warbird, Sportsman and Sundowner. This event promises to start the 2013 season off with a bang as the Unlimiteds have steadily grown lighter and faster than ever. The new Sportsman class is seeing a lot of interest and should be a full class to enjoy. For more info go to the USRA website at www.usrainfo.org.

    The next race will be in Oct 25-27 at Rabbit Dry Lake Bed near Victorville, Ca.

    RE: USRA Giant Scale Racing 2013

    Well we made it through the Summer Nationals and speeds were incredible. Thanks to Chuck and his crew for the efforts for that race.
    I am busy getting ready for the Oct 25-27 race at Rabbit.
    A couple ideas I will be implementing for this years race.

    There will be a dinner on Sat night at the field catered by the food vendor. Tickets are $10, and purchased at registration time.

    If you enter one of the USRA classes (Unl, F1, or SD) and then enter in the Sportsman or Warbird class, that second entry will be half price- $25.

    I will also be selecting a random round/heat of the sportsman class as a "Money" heat. This means for this heat only the first plave winner will receive a cash prize as they walk off the line. (Can not break out) The amount will be determined by the entries.

    I hope to see old biplanes in this class.

    Also I will plan on running the warbird and sundowner classes seperate from the sportsman if the entries are there.

    There is a plan to have an announcer giving a play by play report of all classes: " and there goes Marty Flood around Dave Smith for the lead, its the final turn and Marty Flood wins it, oh and this just in, it is a new world record time of 1:12" Something like that any way.
    Looking forward to seeing all of you for this season finale.

    I have heard rumors that there are around 5 "experimental class" planes coming for this race. These were the rockets in their day and cant wait to see them.

    Dave,
    Yes everything is set , many racers have their eyes set on a new world record, and the championship points race is the tightest I have ever seen in Unlimited and F1 Pro. This will be exciting. Wish you were racing but it will be good to see you any way.

    I have gotten reports that teams have already been out to Rabbit getting final testing and tuning duties completed. The Unlimited class is shaping up to be a "wild ride".
    The Sportsman Class is also racking up entries.

    Friday will be quite a day to soo who is at the top going into Saturdays rounds. If the top pilots can make it safely through Sundays Trophy races will be spectacular.
    Racing scheduled to start each day at 9:00 AM (Fri - Sun).

    Weather is scheduled to be near perfect all weekend.

    Hey Craig,
    I bet there will be at least 3 heats if not more of Sportsman. There have only been 1/2 who have preregistered so the numbers wont be accurate at this time. If I'm not mistaken I have you for Unl, F1GT and Sportsman?
