    On the tracks its more like 55mph open parking lots sure higher speeds but tracks are limited on size by ROAR / IFMAR rules.

    Round 4 NATC Series May 20, 2007
    SV Speedway Sun Valley California
    Temp cool 64 in the morning by “Main” time was 70 degrees

    With my Molzer Mowery Racing RS5 Nomadio inside, WOW WHAT A DAY!
    www.molzermoweryracing.com

    Getting my son into R/C racing so why not go 1:5 scale?
    Here is Nathan and his out of the box Ford GT (JHC-888.com)
    Its no RS5 or FG Molzer Mowery Racing but for the task at hand you bet, its cheap enough to let him learn large scale.

    Car worked shockingly well for out of the Box $550 RTR 1:5 scale
    http://www.tqrcracing.com promo code NATC
    Nathan and "His" Nomadio did well but he decided that he was not yet up to a 30 main, so he settled with his quals.
    Set up was normal, but here is a shock the STOCK KIT TIRES were the ticket!!!

    Race Report:
    I spent my time getting Nathan ready / being pit dad even though our heats were back to back, I went out and qualified 4th for my main. That RS5 is a JOY to drive (insert thanks to Molzer Mowery racing and Modelcargo hand shake here). In the main the "pack" was all bunched up like a big wad of 1:5 scales going three wide in the turns, double wide down the back straight and crazy stuff like that. So I decided to hang back for the first few minutes and let them punt each other for giggles. Sure enough by the half way mark I was in #2 where I put a lap or two on the others in the field and tried to keep #1 from slapping a lap on me. My MOLZER MOWERY RACING RS5 http://www.molzermoweryracing.com was a HOOT to drive on the freshly re-surfaced SV track. GRP "B" up front and "A" out back 3 degrees of rear camber and she was good to go, go, go. I was happy to share a few parts with a “NEW” 1:5 scale Racer in the series, nice to see that the RS5s are starting to show up more and more at the races out here. I bumped up to the “BIG” show but had to wave off Mimi my 14 year old was receiving her silver award from the Girl Scouts so Nathan and I packed up after having a GREAT time at SV racing our 1:5 scale cars.

    Side Bar:
    Alan Trump was having a “BAD” day all sorts of really weird stuff just kept happening to him perplexed, he was driving and the car went into failsafe but it was weird on the bench the NOMADIO REACT radio worked perfect but start the motor and NO radio. So we swapped out the receiver as we were doing that I noticed the LED was not blinking sure enough it was his battery pack NOT THE RADIO! What is really cool about this is the Nomadio receiver cap had enough power to failsafe this 1:5 scale car, other systems and a “bad pack” would have resulted in a run away> Nomadio saved a bad day from becoming a really bad costly day!

    Here are some shots I took at the track enjoy.

    So sorry to the rest of the people I “thought” I took photos of they did not save on the camera.
    The 1:5 scale So Cal R/C Riders had great team shirts and I am peeved they did not save on the camera.

    Smooth Sailing,
