Default Test and Tune

Twelve racers came out for the test and tune for the NSR GT series which looks like another sucessful formula for our group. The PSSRA is truely enjoying a renaissance with new racers who generously brought snacks and a great attitude last night. Cars were opened and tuning tips shared getting the cars set up for the races to come.

We were glad to welcome two new faces, Kevin and Cody who while new to our Wednesday night program are veteran Puget Sound racers. Also we are happy to announce another new track into our rotation with Hazard readying his track for its debut event.

Once the cars were sorted we ran a mini enduro that got off to a rocky start with a software glitch that required a restart after the 1st heat. That left a one hour mini enduro which was run mostly in the dark with AJK's lighted Racer Ferrari 250LMs.

620 Laps- Scott, Shawn, Andrew
615 Laps- Victor, Hazard, Oops
566 Laps- Professor, Bob, Fester
565 Laps- Kevin, Cody, AJK


Hope to see you at Shawn's.

I thought it was more fun to come to your house and drink your beer while you are at work.

NSR GTs 6/13/2012

We raced at Shawn’s last night with 14 racers. As usual the Sweeney’s were great hosts and showed us a good time. I had too much fun and am not really feeling inspired to post a detailed report. Let it be said the mood of the group was great and the ball busting even better. The beer was cold and the Yagar in the freezer. Good snacks and we even managed to race a little. Victor got the Ferrari for finishing third and was thrilled. We ran the IROC as the second event to allow those who wanted to leave early the opportunity to do so. I’ll post the results only because I found the right level of intoxication to finish third in the IROC . See you all next week at Red Devil.

Default Round 2 NSR GT-Red Devil Raceway

I'm sure that Fester will share his version of the race but I know we had 16 racers, I sat out to run the scoring computer. It was nice to welcome yet another new racer to the PSSRA roster, Jay Mac. From the looks of things he is as serious about racing 1/32 scale cars as he is with the 1/24 commercial cars.

Welcome Jay Mac!

Default Wednesday NSR GT series 6-20-12

Wednesday PSSRA racing at Red Devil

Sorry I haven’t been keeping up on my reporting duties, but I have a slot car track to build. I have been having a great time working on the new track and will start routing today. I am going to get on line and find some scenery items I need to have on hand. I also need to get some wiring supplies ordered. I still don’t have the answer to how to set up individual track control so we can do fuel stops, but I will figure it out.

Wednesday at Red Devil sucked. Well it sucked for me I finished dead last. How can anyone so dedicated to a hobby be so bad at it? The only week I feel I was doing well I was almost fell in the ditch in front of my house when the professor dropped me off after the race (beer is the answer). Actually the evening was filled with lots of great people (about 20 counting all that were in attendance) and some super racing. There were a few people missing that were out enjoying the summer, so I don’t know what we will do when the regular season commences this fall. Oh well, to suffer from to much success is a problem we can work. Several have said they would sit an evening out and help with marshaling and scoring if that becomes necessary. I don’t care, I am having to much fun to let the details bother me. If I skipped a couple of weeks racing maybe, I could catch up on my reporting and photos.

Well I am just going to post the results and get out to the shop and get back to work on my track. I was so stiff and sore this morning I couldn’t clip my fingernails. But we will work through the pain. That is what a real man does. Some of the guys are coming over this weekend to help and it should be fun. You all are invited to come help out or just stop bye to check it out. The Professor and Derek will be here Sunday and a couple of others will be here on Saturday.


According to my computer the file they downloaded on my thumb drive is invalid. So I can not post the actual results from the race. I will give the finishing order in a simple quick format. I was just going to give the top three but I could have given the top 14 and still not had to have listed me.


Tony Gave out a car to 5th place and the Ferrari went to third and Red Devil gave out a shirt to like 6th. I don't really know, I got confused, but thanks to all of your for the prizes and congratulations to whoever won!



Thanks to the Professor for taking over the computer duties so Mr. Norman could race with us. Yea, someone else to beat me.


Oh I forgot to tell all of you. I had a race at my house yesterday and I won!
