Default RACER 220 WHERE ARE YOU?!

My son is going to do some hillclimbs. Got some questions about track screws and tunnel protectors. Do you not install screws in the paddles where they would hit the protector or is the protector sacrificial/just in case you bottom out. Installed a lot of studs but never cut down a track and installed screws. Protectors are 1"x1" aluminum. Any help is appreciated.

back when the world cooled and we raced.. we did not put screws where the track may come into contact with the tunnel protectors... we found when you bottomed out it pulled the screws and trashed stuff... We did add as many screws as possible as allowed by rules... and scratch lines did not seem to be as important... but we still tried to avoid duplicating scratch lines. Good luck!

Sorry, been living under a rock lately haha

I'm with Plumnuts, I typically try not to put screws down the same line the protectors run down the tunnel. In fact, I have actually left a 'tab' of sorts by not cutting the lug all the way across so it hits the tunnel protector at the same height as the screws. Giving it the extra 1/4" of room has helped keep the tunnel virtually unmarked vs cutting the lug straight across. I'll try to get a pic so you can make sense of what I just describe.

I need to get the tapatalk app or whatever goes on the phone. Ever since I changed jobs my life on the forums has been depleted. Gladly help with anything I can though.

Thanks for the input guys. I'm lagging behind also, LOL. The track is cut, and everything else is ready to go. Leaving Sunday 3-15 for a week + of practice and testing. Union Pass, then to Alpine and Jackson Wed. before the Hillclimb. Gonna get our feet wet in the amateur class this year and see where it goes. Hoping to qualify and get to run the hill Friday. Look for Team Storm Racing, 383, we'll take all the help we can get!

FUNCTION IS BEAUTY!

Hey!! Craziest thing ever coming across this archived thread haha...

Turns out you guys figured out the game pretty dang good. It's been fun watching all the new racers on the circuit. I wish I was involved like I used to be but it has been fun to still get around and help here and there. Good luck this season......if it ever starts lol!!!!

Thanks. It has been a successful venture. Kids having shoulder surgery soon, so not running this season. Looking forward to coming back next season.
