Hey everyone, I kept forgetting to post this here until now. The other day the DCRL added the 2015 Time Trials mail-in track passes for sale on their eBay page. They are running the event on the Northshore Hills Road course, the East Ridge street rally course, and the 1/4 mile dragstrip. Here is a link to the DCRL's eBay page:

http://www.ebay.com/usr/diecast_racer_x?_trksid=p2060778.m1438.l2754

More info can be found on the track pass listings as to what classes are being ran and what the rules / restrictions are.

Good luck everyone!

Yup, I have a car or two ready for launch.  Thanks for the link. East Ridge here I come...

I was going to ask what track to race on...East Ridge then?

I paid for the 1/4 mile drag strip, hope its the right track as I don't want curves...

yes, East Ridge.  the 1/4 mile drag is new this year...has my interest.

 

link to all tracks at www.dcraction.com

 edit, the 1/4 mile drag is not listed there, but videos exist https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T18AwuEXyko

 

 

I'm in! East Ridge and 1/4 mile! 

Should be fun!

I was wondering what cars to build for this and then I came across this 1993 5-pack...

Hmmmm?

got a "quarter mile drag strip" track pass in the mail today... keep me posted as to where and when...

Traction-Event
you can send cars anytime throughout the year, but he keeps them til 2016.

hmmm... note the hole size for the timing sensors on the drag race video...

Traction-Event
what ya gettin at?
KandORacing
Smitty, maybe it's just me being me but I have to ask the same thing as TE, what do you mean?

Just picked up 2 East Ridge passes...final tuning then shipping them out...

72_Chevy_C10
I have my cars planned out...I might get them build this week...one East Ridge and one Drag track

the johnnies had to send their Wizzard back to the manufacturer... wrong car winning... they said the holes should be 1/16"... I will down size mine next series with another track section...

 my comment was because his appear to be 3/8" square or bigger...

FOTF
Don't make them too small, or the time won't register at all...that proved a bigger problem.

just bought another "track pass" from DCRL... there are a few left, ..... go rld racers go !

model40fan
both mine are 1/4 mile drags...

Sent my East Ridge challengers in earlier this week...now...we wait.

model40fan
when do we send the cars ?... no date on the passes...
Traction-Event
I have his address at home, send you a PM tonight
KandORacing
Can't wait to see them run, Chris. My Car I was telling you about in PM needs some tweaking. Rear axle spins beautifully
KandORacing
But the front axle's wheels spin terribly. Going to have to do some more tuning. It's fast than I thought it would be

Broke down and bought [2] DCRX track passes for the 1/4 mile...

   106.5 Hot Rod Lincoln and 102.4 Miss Vicky... note the Sloppy Jalopies and the Lady Luck stickers on Link's roof... Vicky has one on her bustle... tough to beat a car with Lady Luck by it's side ;

thanks for the entry help TE...

model40fan
any other RLD racers entering the 1/4 mile drags ?
72_Chevy_C10
I'm in, Smitty...getting a '55 ready this weekend
model40fan
can't wait, darn race isn't till 2016, said he has 3 of each class "passes" left as of 3-12-15.
KandORacing
Smitty, you can send your cars in any time this year. It IS for 2015, they just don't declare a winner until the end of the fantasy league
KandORacing
season, which is usually in about November
model40fan
thanks...

Here's one car, nearing completion...sitting at 75 grams...

http://i1074.photobucket.com/albums/w407/critterwerks/Mobile%20Uploads/20150317_184509_zpsmbvksccy.j...

It still needs a new paint job...or; at least to take the tampos off!

KandORacing
Nice! 300C Chassis? :)
72_Chevy_C10
Yup! It seems pretty quick
model40fan
if the sloppies were to lose it would be to familiar tail lights !

http://i1074.photobucket.com/albums/w407/critterwerks/Mobile%20Uploads/20150318_123733_zps3cedzzao.j...

What color do you think?

I'm thinking matte black...for a change...:)

Traction-Event
leave it just like that...I'm serious. let the performance do the talking...not the paint job!
72_Chevy_C10
Hmmm, maybe :)
model40fan
you have been called worse than a lousy stripper !
KandORacing
Bellinam Orange!

I see the quarter-mile pass has three days left on it; is that how long I have to get one?

model40fan
no it means it has 3 days left before it turns into a pumpkin !
KandORacing
LOL
KandORacing
In other words, the listing ends then. They will still re-list though.
FOTF
Oh! I thought that might be it! Meaning Smitty's answer. K&O's makes no sense. Thanks!

I decided  to go black metali...

http://i1074.photobucket.com/albums/w407/critterwerks/Mobile%20Uploads/20150319_184032_zpscvh9fa45.j...

model40fan

model40fan

Traction-Event

http://i1074.photobucket.com/albums/w407/critterwerks/Mobile%20Uploads/20150319_200902_zpsfboul0k0.j...

She's right under 80 grams...have to use my big rollback to haul her around!

I think she might be my East Ridge car...now, I need a 1/4 mile car! A '57 Chevy, do you think?

model40fan
sure you wanna know what the sloppies think ?
72_Chevy_C10
Although, I could build a Hot Rod Ford, too...right, Smitty? :)
model40fan
the way god n' henry intended it !

my northshore hills track pass needs a car ..... hmmmmm .... stumbled onto a Chrysler 300 FTE donar base... gonna check some body wheelbases...

KandORacing
Northshore Hills doesn't run modified cars...
model40fan
thanks k n o
KandORacing
See ya on East Ridge!
model40fan
is east ridge a drag strip ? ... if not, you WON'T see me there !
KandORacing
Yes it is a dragstrip....
model40fan
after watching TE's videos i think east ridge is a road course

With dcrx's permition I sent the extra No.Shore Hills track pass to long time RLD member Gspeedr... speedr runs some fast stockers and loves the open track rumble... go speedr go ! 

Traction-Event
Go Smitty & Gspeedr

My cars made their runs… times are set… Who’s next?

model40fan
smooth passes TE... post n' toast, post your time n' toast those that don't catch you...
Traction-Event
Track racord for East Ridge is 15.1sec...just missed it...again.

I have a  Charcoal Briquette '55 that is ready to go! I just need to get another one built.

model40fan
which course[s] are you racing on ?
72_Chevy_C10
East Ridge and the Quarter Mile

mailed out [2] 1/4 mile drag cars today...

Traction-Event
More passes on EPay, need to look into those Drag passes...

TE, did dcrx send you that video ?

Traction-Event
No sir, I subscribed on YouTube....when I see your cars run I'll send you the links
model40fan
you're a good man charlie brown !

got a dcrx email, except for his crew, my 2 cars are the first to race on the quarter mile drag track... times and youtube videos to come... go sloppies go !

72_Chevy_C10
Cool! Go Smitty!
Traction-Event
I'll keep an eye out...
model40fan
gave me the option of two single lane runs or dual lane, took the latter.

I was trying to build an Aeroflash for the modified S-Class on East Ridge... the rear wheels spun great but the front ones were crap after I installed them. On to a Probe F/C... all 4 wheels spun bad, the project got set aside. Now on a Ferrari F40 for modified production, hoping this doesn't turn into yet another dud. 

 Sloppy trials are in the books...Hot Rod Link'n [1.947]   put a spankin' on Miss Vicky [2.001]...

 DCRX 1/4 mile Time to beat is 1.947 seconds..

notice ;  Link's sporting 5 spoke rears ;


KandORacing
Last year they never time trials on the dragstrip, you are the first mail-in for that track ever!
model40fan
well that lets the wind from my sails...
KandORacing
Still damn fast
Traction-Event
fill those sails...fast times indeed, track record to boot. atta boy! way to show em how it's done on RLD!!!
Traction-Event
to add, this is kick @ss. awesome job Smitty...

Da runs!


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9pDV8uhR7Ao



anybody else send in a racer for the 1/4 mile drags...?

KandORacing
Not yet but planning on it for later in the year.
Any other racers sending in cars... year is ticking away...
72_Chevy_C10
I have one sitting on my desk...I just haven't gotten around to sending it in!

Will be doing ours real soon! 

My car is out there, being run this weekend! I'm running the same '55 Chevy on East Ridge and in the Quarter mile...I'll share the videos when he posts them!

KandORacing
I thought racers weren't allowed to do that?
72_Chevy_C10
Idk? I had only built the one car and I sent it in with the two passes.

Here's my first run...on the Drap Strip...

ttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1KU1lcs_Ac8

Smitty is still sitting pretty there!

Traction-Event
clean runs!, I think Smitty had 28g on ya...
72_Chevy_C10
Yeah, I should have had lead in the front seat as well as the back! :)

Well, my '55 didn't like the East Ridge very much....

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TlhtpAdVjsA

Traction-Event
You never know until you send em in to combat. car seemed to slow down each run?... odd for FTE's?
Traction-Event
solid runs... beats looking at it on the workbench... sent in for validation.
72_Chevy_C10
I'm guessing an axle might have come loose on that first run...it shouldn't have slowed like that....oh well, still fun to watch!
KandORacing
Might have just not handled the bumps & jumps as well by coincidence on those runs.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ioJWp_Vsx68

Not #1 but still fun to watch!

CrzyTrkrDude
Fun indeed! But man, what a violent course!! lol those slots really do a number on the cars speed. Yikes!
Traction-Event
Not too shabby Keith. On the podium!!!
fordman
good show ol boy...

any news on these races ?

72_Chevy_C10
The last I knew, you were still in the lead on the quarter mile (I'm in 2nd)
fordman
go hot rod link'n go !

This one makes the CUL8R's runs feel much better. Hahaha

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uoKfXsJUxgk

CrzyTrkrDude
I highly recommend watching the video immediately following the AEROLINE run also. HILAREOUS!! OMG!!
CrzyTrkrDude
The Aerolime did pretty good!
Traction-Event
Great casting choice! Good job getting your cars sent in!

Congrats!!! Trophy time boys! Smitty, K&O, and C-10 all  bringing home hardware! RLD representing!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SBDLFoSlCFM


KandORacing
Congratulations Smitty! Great build as always.
72_Chevy_C10
Congrats Smitty!
72_Chevy_C10
And Congrats, Keith!

More hardware going out... RLD again at the top of the heap!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PfeyZrNzXy4

wow... the RLD boys will be working the postman delivering those awards.... bet the DCR track regulars hate to see us stage !

Congrats K&O and Traction Event! I hope more RLD regulars send their cars in next year!

My '55 took two 2nd's...I need to step up a little next year! 

Not to minimize any victories, but in the categories RLD members are winning we seem to be the only/majority of the entrants.  Is there a category of races at these tracks with lots of entrants?

KandORacing
I was going to say.. RLD guys are really the only ones that send stuff in haha

@Mo, I too would like to see more participation, part of why I post results here. But for some the entry fee is steep, and you only get 3-4 runs depending on the track you choose. You get full video coverage, and some sweet hardware if you win. 

I like the DCR tracks, and follow them on Youtube for weekly fantasy racing. I always wondered how my builds would perform on the tracks I see online. Now I know. Going head to head with other like minded racers... very cool. Smitty, C-10, K&O, all very competent builders. 

There are 4 tracks and 6, or 7 car classes... plenty of options to enter. Join the fun. 

Yeah, I agree with TE...I'd love to see more racers. But the best way to get more racers is to race...the more people that compete, the more will want to compete! 

This past year was the first year he ran drags and it was just me and Smitty. So, let's get more guys involved! The entry fee is a little steep, but the trophies are pretty cool...and so are the videos.

I'll be sending more in next year...hopefully, one that will get around corners a little better!

fred loves trophies... he will get a charge out of getting the trophy and the car that won it...

go dcrx and fred go !

East Ridge definitely seems to be the most challenging, I've got a thirst for victory next year ;)

got the 1" thick, glass, illuminated DCRL trophy and my cars in todays mail... i'll send a pic to c10... but if kno gets his first, his pic will show us off...  

Traction-Event
Yeah buddy! Top of the heap!

Smitty's trophy...

http://i1074.photobucket.com/albums/w407/critterwerks/trophy%201%20001-1_zpsea3k2sx2.jpg

fordman
yeh, baby... go fred go !

the DCRL track is black, next year i will paint my entry a light color...

Hey guys, DCR is hosting a 4th of July race on the same Drag strip that Smitty picked up the above hardware. 

Rules are in the details, production based cars, modifications ok, but check the rules...  see ya trackside!
