Breaking in problems

Hi Guys. I wanted to go to the tracks, I am having a problem breaking in my engines in our neighborhood(noise). Anybody knew if the tracks have a space for this kind of activity?

I would just do it in my front yard....or at the local park, or school parking lot after hours. The track doesn't really have a place for it, and you can't just run there, you have to pay practice fees and follow track procedures with radio freq clip controls, etc.

Break-in is easily done at home, before you come to the track.

There's lots of guys in the Naperville, Aurora, Plainfield, Bolingbrook area that could assist you, if you need it.

Ok Dave. Got you. I'll probably do it slowly until I broke in all my engines. Do we have a group here in our area? nice to go to the tracks with friends and someone with experience and familiar with the tracks.

frequency conflict killed my car but i must show restraint

dear LHR,

first i would like to apologize to all your customers, their family and friends and whom ever else was offended by my language on this sunday. the way i was shouting is really not in my nature and i regret acting out in such a way in your place of business. i always pride myself in being polite and very considerate of others around me and thats why i feel the need to let you guys know that i do not condone the way i was yelling and using choice words.

the issue,

my name is quay. guys may not know me by name but they know me as maybe the the black guy who always shows up to races and events with always a yellow and black painted onroad bodies for the past 3 years at tinley, dekalb, midwest series and now LHR. i have always been respectful of other drivers on and off the track. i know the rules and pretty much try to follow them.

well today, i missed the first qualifier for onroad of which i was registered to use ch. 75 which was clearly printed for racers to see. i even took it a step further by making sure i even had the clip from off the board with me.

during the second qualifier, i fired up my car and immediately left the pits only to have my car start going crazy and smacking into the boards. the damage:

broken fronts knuckles left and right
broken steering tie rod
broken dog bone
broken steering assembly
cracked front tire

i attempted to get some understanding from the individual who jacked my signal (Ira) only to be made to feel it was my fault and a "its the tracks fault" because they he wasnt using the channel he registered to use or even announce his alternate channels. after walking away from this guy i grew more upset because he did not and would not admit to me he was wrong and apologize. and thats when i lost for 20+ minutes. i was not asking for money, spare parts or some first place standing, i just wanted the guy to be a man and not only own up to the issue he caused but show some sort of compassion or remorse. he broke the cardinal rule in our hobby.

i know spektrum cures these issues and i know accidents happen...i get that. all i wanted was an apology man. shoot at the very least they could have banned him from the rest of the race day to even the score.

just my long rant,
Quay
C-main regular

Thought I'd bring Leisure Hours back to the top.

This track hosts several large events every year:

Byron's On Road
RC Pro Series, electric and nitro, indoor and out.

CHeck it out if in the area of Joliet, IL - due west from the Joliet Speedway, and just across the street from the Xtreme Challenge Park paintball fields.

The photo is old...the on-road track is painted and sealed very nicely.
