Tebo is running rear, Hara is running mid, and it looks like it.

Word is the track is pretty loose right now. But Hara did do pretty well in the first round of qualifying. It'll be interesting to see how he ends up. And I'm sure he wouldn't run the mid if it didn't work best.

Tebos car is planted.
Tebo and Ryan's car looked the best of the group... Hara's the worst. (at least just the couple practice laps we got to see.) Obvious rear traction issues with the MM. You can tell by the tiny stepup doulbe in the back right corner before going onto the straight. There is almost no run-up, so getting on the throttle hard from a near-dead stop will be more difficult for the MM cars to clear. Hara was fighting the two laps we got to see... Tebo was cruise control.

(although, even the RM cars, if they take the corner too tight, were just barely clearing it.). the track looks new and loose. I bet traction will come way up.

Tebo's carr does look locked in. Dustin Evan's looks like a serious handful!

Hara's car didn't perform that bad for the 2 laps that was shown. he cleared the double going into the straight with ease the first time. the second one he cut the corner shorter than anyone else and couldn't generate enough speed....

should be interesting to see how the traction level comes up and how the cars perform. the losi cars had allot of push! (other than Dustin's)

but man... that track flows soooo nice!!!

Not surprising, there are TONS of heats... Doubt he has evans, cav, or tebo in his heat. How does hara usually do in 1/10th 2wd? I never see his name really there... He's a MONSTER in 8th and in TC onroad.
