Hi Blake,

Couple of quick questions.. Does the track have a tire truer setup?  And, the batteries you sell are they 4mm or 5mm plugs?


Is there area to setup a table, or are there lots already setup?   Its been a while, feel like a complete novice again.  Should be interesting.

Cheers,
Shawn.

Lots of tables, Shawn. Blake has both types of batteries. There is usually at least one truer there.

Hey Shawn,

Good to hear from you!  The track/club doesn't have a truer, but you can borrow mine, and I've never seen Craig turn anyone down either.

I have both types of batteries in stock.

There are tables already setup.

Hopefully see ya there!

Fun racing last night!  Congrats to Doug for strong performances all around and taking the 12th Scale win.  NickK had the fast lap, but Doug drove a near flawless run for the victory.

Good racing last night - lots of closely contended heats and mains!  Also, very clean racing all around which is nice to see.

This Saturday, Apr 29, is currently the last indoor race on the schedule.  I'd like to have a driver's meeting to discuss the start of outdoor racing and the future of Matrix.

See ya there tomorrow,
Blake
