  • 50 Lap Race on the Attleboro Speedway

    Amateurs, including the race marshals. I use SmartRace for race control.
    I cut the red-flag waiting periods out.
    We're running speed 6/10, which scales out to ~230mph.
    A good lap time is under 5.4sec.
    I'm running the orange McLaren 720s, the only car that doesn't leave the track.

      Right on. My name is Bill I’m out in Framingham. I own a four-lane routed track with braid. We have about 8 to 12 guys that come over and race once or twice a month on Thursdays.We also race up at model Ville on Thursdays as well both Ho and 1/32. If you don’t know about model Ville hobby in Ashland mass look it up. We’re always looking for new guys or girls who wanna race. Great bunch of guys. Non-cigarette smokers and no Boozing while we race. Real laid-back crowd. If interested let me know.

        It's great to hear Modelville Hobbies is still going, I was afraid they might not survive the pandemic. Great place, I used to stop in there every time I was in the Boston area for college meetings and buy a car and/or a bunch of parts. I live in Maine and haven't been out of the state in a year and a half.

        Modelville Hobbies is one of two commercial raceways left in the 6-state New England area. The other is Bristol 1010 Raceway in CT. Modelville, today, is located in what was my old neighborhood from 1969-71.

      That race looks a lot like having family members race on my track. Odds of having more than one person who can stay on the track for more than one lap are extremely poor.

        Rex - you've gotta wire those controllers up with some electrodes. It'd fix that issue in less than an hour I'd bet.

      Very nice.

      are you running magnets? Both or just one?

      what is the track planning software you show in the YouTube remarks?

      thanks,

      Bruce
