Hey Gang, just a quick word regarding the Nationals Run schedule...

The way it's working, unless someone signs up for a class, the class isn't being slotted into the Day-to-Day Run Schedule.

Bottom line is that the faster you get signed up, the sooner they'll have the run schedule worked out, so please go sign up if you are attending.

Then we'll all get a peak at what days will host what events. :)

There is a calendar on the website that has what is being run on each day? Are we to assume that this calendar is NOT accurate? Please clarify this because if I am going to attend I need to know what is being run on each day. Thanks.

So who on the board is going to come out for the Nat's" Got any new boats that will be debuting?

Darin Jordan

I haven't officially signed up yet. Been trying to figure out what boats I'll actually have available for the event, but at this point, it's looking like these for sure:


N2-Offshore

P-LTD OPC Tunnel
P-LTD Mono
P-LTD Offshore

P-OPC Tunnel
P-Mono
P-Cat
P-Offshore

Q-Cat
Q-Mono
Q-Offshore

T-Cat
T-Mono
T-Offshore


Some of these depend on where they are slotted in the week. That's my biggest hold-up in finalizing signup is that I need to make some decisions based on where in the week things fall.

And yes.. Need to see full schedule to see if can race all

Agreed... Need to see if I can even get the time off work during the week.

WERE I a fly on the wall, capable of providing advice that might be considered.... I'd have recommended two very reasonable things:


1) CHOOSE and OFFER a specific list of classes that you are planning on supporting. The rules don't require that ALL classes be offered. Pick those most likely to be run.
2) Put together a full race schedule based at #1
3) IF there are enough requests for some class you may have left OFF the schedule, add it. Most likely it would take the place of a scheduled class that didn't fill up.

[/INDENT]

Yep, that's the right way.

I would strongly strongly suggest they produce an accurate schedule for this event. For instance, if the first day has no classes for a particular racer that frees up and entire day of travel. Same thing at the end of the race. Or pick a day to site see.

That said, unfortunately I will not be making the trip out there myself. It was our intent to make this a family vacation and spend some time in the area. My wife has a new gig and can't get the time off.

Seattle is truly a beautiful place to visit. So much to do besides toy boats.

JimClark
05-18-2016, 01:30 PM
I am hoping to race but it all depends on family medical issues if I can race and if I can get my my two boats done so I can get some experience turning right. I may have to just take pictures and maybe run my 1/10th scale.

JimClark
05-19-2016, 07:16 PM
Well I am registered for one class with possibility of two more classes.

Guys got a update. There is going to be 3 or more hulls for the raffle and tons of other goodies.

macace123
05-21-2016, 11:02 PM
Also we may be lowering the min of boats in a heat from 5 to 4 the class's. But dont let that detour you from singing up in the class you want to run. cause if you sing up now we can get more class's on the site. if you dont see it dont mean we will not run it now. more updates to the site in this week.

155 Boats / 28 Racers

OK Racers it is time to get signed up and push
this boat and racer count even higher !!!

I visited the Puget sound Club back in 2007 at my first FE Nationals.
It is a beautiful part of the country....a must see in your bucket list.
They have a great club and terriffic bunch of guys. They definetely
welcomed me and treated me 1st class and like one of their own.
This should be a very special event....sign up now at:

I know I should be trying to convince people to come to my race instead but Ken is right. Seattle is beautiful and there's a ton of things to see while your there if your so inclined.

A few things from my last trip there:
Space Needle
Pike Street Market
International Fountain
Take a road trip to Paradise loop on Mt. Rainier
OMG.....the food! Eat some muscles!

Things I wanted to do:
Airplane museum
Hydroplane Museum
Boeing tour

I signed up on Friday... Not sure I'll actually be ready to RACE all the classes I signed up for, but it's all been bought and paid for, so we'll see... I know a couple probably won't make the event anyhow. May add, may take away. We'll see as the time draws closer. The classes that I'm absolutely prepped for are highlighted in green... :spy:



P-LIMITED OPC
P-CAT
P-MONO
Q-MONO
P-OPC
Q-CAT
P-OFFSHORE
Q-OFFSHORE


I also have pretty much ready to race, if I decided I wanted to, the following that I COULD enter:


P-LTD HYDRO
P-LTD MONO
P-LTD OFFSHORE
P-LTD CAT
N2-OFFSHORE
N2-MONO

AND, I could run my Q-Mono or Q-Cat in the T-Classes as well...

Back to building...

Darin, throw your P limited in P offshore. You'll only be off the pace by a 1/4 to a 1/2 a lap. With drivers being the loose canons that we are you could easily place that way.

If I get it finished up in time, I actually have a pretty nice mono I'll be running in P-OFFSHORE.

Or I can run my Twin Cat...

Darin Jordan
06-06-2016, 02:34 PM
Or.... I could really screw with people, or the rules, and run my OPC Tunnel in Offshore... I think I've found enough precedent... ;)

Ray, I can make my 1527/1d run for 4 minutes but its a bugger to finish with.

I never looked at the totals for 15 but at the 14 Nat's there was little difference.

Honestly, that's just more power than one needs. Someone is compensating... ;)

A solid setup on a 1415 1Y could easily do 4-Min at WOT, which would give you PLENTY of speed and you wouldn't kill your packs. We've found, in a P-HYDRO, for example, that the 1415 1Y Castle/Neu only used a couple of hundred more mAh than a P-LTD setup. Just more efficient.

I'm having one of those Buass moments where I don't want anyone to read my stuff, think my setup is for them, and burn their boat to the water line.

That setup is stupid. It's what I had in my box of gear at that moment to run. Got it done with 11% in the tank on 10k. Absolutely a nightmare to finish with. With some careful throttle work it was possible......sometimes. Okay maybe 2 out of 3 heats.

I've said before that I make up for my lack of driving prowess with obscene quantities of speed. So yes, compensating for something. It's oddly satisfying to hear people gasp on the drivers stand when you go by them at one g'jillion miles per hour. Of course they later go by me when I'm floating upside down on the 5th lap.

Well CRAP... Heard that someone pulled out of the Nats last night, taking 6 entries with him.

The anticipated Zelos 36 Twin vs. MTR X2 will just have to wait, I guess. Q-Cat has been canceled due to only two entries left...
