YES, I Have had trouble with reliable raceing and posting of said racing events.  I have been taking steps to rectify this problem.  I do strongly wish to be apart of this hobby community.  Most of what I am doing to take full responsibility for the completion of races revolves around preparing tracks to be 1 person operational.  I have been far too reliant on my brother who doesn't like doing the filming.  He is trying to push that we keep all of this private and selfishly away from the general public.  I don't want to do most of this if all we are is 45 plus year old men playing with children's toys.  So, I am doing everything I can think of to bring it too an adult level.  Problem is, he is only 12 to 17 years old in his mind.  (Infant brain injury during birthing.  Enough said.)  My biggest problem with doing the filming alone is that the tracks are so long and fast that it is difficult to manually load & launch & follow to film the card by myself.  It has taken some time to gather the materials together to build a start box that I can move around Snow Leopard Mountain Range, (there are multiple start points) and be operational from a distance.  Second big hurdle to over come is multiple cameras mounted all over the place, combined with a computer capable of collecting all the data and producing and edited video.  For the time being I am going live on Facebook as often as possible to show reliabilty and versatility of all the possible racing your cars can do.  Along with new and evolving safety systems being implemented to protect your cars from real damage.  (I torture test my cars so your cars won't.)  With that being said.....

There are several race tracks. Every track has seasonal racing. Every track can race different scale sizes. We can race in different weather conditions from summer hot and dry to winter snow and ice to rainy and even muddy or dry sand.
The invitation here is to mail in a team of cars to race all the tracks and some made for specific tracks and it's speciality.

I struggle with timing out while one finger typing on my phone, so I'll have to come back several times to fill this out correctly and still be able to save.

Well...update is very late...I haven't been able to do the build journals for all of the tracks.  My life is so chaotic.  It really does feel like the harder I try ... the old phone was forgotten on the roof of the truck and fell off...need I say more.  Heeps of data lost. I'm not sure if I can recover the Mico SD card that has 128 gig.  The new phone does not take extra data card!! This is a huge setback.  I have no way of saving the data. The phone sales guy says that data cards have been pushed out 2 or three years ago, and saving to the "cloud" is what is expected.  So that means I have to pay for a subscription  to let somebody else look after my photos and videos.  Thereby loosing control over my stuff and spend more money I don't have.  I feel like I am caught between a rock and a hard place.  I don't know what to do.  ...
