East Coast 1/18th Scale Championship!

Whats up race fans! We have something new for you. Pottbelly’s RC in Pittsgrove New Jersey is proud to present the East Coast 1/18th Scale Championships. October 28,29,30. We plan on putting your 1/18th scale trucks and sedans to the test on our indoor off-road and indoor carpet track. You heard right Pottbelly’s R/C raceway houses both an indoor carpet track and an indoor dirt/clay race track. Its time to put these trucks on the dirt and test their metal on a ninety by forty foot race track with all the bumps and jumps you’d expect to find on a off road race track. Let’s not forget all you on road micro fans, we will be gathering the fastest 1/18th scale sedans together for a competition on the carpet as well. The East Coast 1/18th scale Championships sponsor’s will include Trinity, Castle Creations, Tekin, One18th.com, UnitedRC, Nomadio and many more yet to be announced. Below is an attachment that has the rules, facility layout and a few other details. The Race Guide is attached here for you to check out what is coming. The daily format will be released shortly but it’s a planned 3 day event Friday practice, Saturday practice and qualifying Sunday finals and some activities in between. These things aren’t written in stone but if you have any questions please feel free to email me at the address indicated on the attachment.

Attention all 1:18th Fans....

I just got a e-mail from Competition R/C. They are the US distributor for GQ Racing Products. GQ has a new line of 1:18 foam tires. For Every Entry recieved before October 15 They will give each driver who enters a micro class a free set of tires. 1 set per driver not micro entry. .Paid registration must be in by October 15th. You can check out the GQ products at http://www.comtetition-rc.com/GQ.htm They have a lot of cool stuff there.

Also more good news Nomadio makers of the Bad boy of Bad Boys DSM radios is putting up a new Nomadio Sensor Radio System to be given away. You can check that out at http://www.nomadio.net

I'm trying to get some confirmation on Entry hadnouts for the offroad now. As soon as I hear back I will post it online.

Also we have decided that if we get 20 Early Registrations for the Half 8 and Mini Monster Classes we will enter them as full classes not exhibition. Rules won't change they will remain run what you brung classes

Ok Race Fans here's the scoop on what's been going on.

First I have to say BIG THANKS before the race even starts to Castle Creations, Trinity and Kyosho for the Primary support, not just in materials but sending out top notch pro racers to race with us and share their knowledge and maybe make new connections. Also most of our other sponsors will also be in the house. Tekin, URC, One18th.

I have not heard if Nomadio will be there but we are getting the Sensor system. One nice high tech radio system. Associated is also taking care of us for the race, Last I recently was told there's chance they might come now. There was a conflict but maybe it'll change. How awesome would that be? Team Associated and Team Trinity IB Spyder vs 18T head to head in the DIRT where they belong....

Latest Big News Team Kyosho came on board to Support the event. So with their support we've added a class to half 8 and they are now full classes in the event. There is the open class which is as it was stated nothing has changed there. We've added a spec class which will be (Stock Electronics, 8 2/3A cell bat pack max, Kyosho XSpeed Motor, Any Oil Shocks) so if you are interested in Spec Half 8 there's a new version of the registration form on our website www.pottbellysrc.com with the new classes.

I heard some rumors on the threads about Mag coverage of the race. We have been guaranteed one of 2 Magazines will be there. I'm hoping for both. They both came in from different directions at the same time. So I'm going to make sure all is cool between them before I give names but they both said they would. So we WILL have coverage. Just ironing out the details.

Friday Night we're having an Open Buffet Party at the track during evening practice. It'll run from about 6 or 7 till we wrap up Friday night so you can bench race with the guys or practice till you pass out.... LOL....

OCTOBER 15th one week from tomorrow is the cut off for the free tires from GQ Racing. We finally completed testing them and have what we feel is a good combination that GQ will provide for Micro Racers registered before the 15th.

October 25th is the cut off for Early Registration. Right now the Open Half 8 and Pro Mod Micro classes are the largest. Both starting to fill B Mains. Pro Mod 4wd truck has almost filed the A. Surprisingly we've had No 2wd truck entries to date. And the one sportsman class entry switched up to PRO. So surprisingly we have no Sportsman class entries in any vehicles. Mostly Pro Mod Entries and Half 8. We do have a couple open 4wd truck and open micro entries. This does not count a number of entries I'm told are in the mail. And does not include all the sponsors’ entries. I should have those soon. Once I get all the sponsors listed I will post a detailed list.

One cool thing about registrations so far is we're really no longer the East Coast Championships. The west coast came on board and now with the Canadian entries coming I believe it bumps is to intercontinental have to check that...now all we need is one or 2 from Europe, and Asia we could call it the WORLDS...


There’s more to come I will keep everyone posted. Our Sponsors are a lot of fun to work with and have some cool fun ideas for stuff.
