I wish I could paint my cars like that. Wow! (The reason I don't is because my driving can be compared to rugby.)

Has anyone used the Super Hard inserts yet? Thoughts?

Battery is probably fine. Get a better motor

Im curious to know what the ruling was for this past TCS Regional? Any 21.5? Timing allowed @ motor? If so, how much?

If timing adjustment is limited to whats on the can, then I believe the NOVAK will be down on power from what the locals say.

any RAOR approved 21.5 and you you can use motor timing.

Novak's are very fast when advanced well past the timing mark. Under TCS rules, not a good motor.

Everyone needs whatever Jamie Hanson had in his mini at Jackson. It was a rocket ship...

Check out the lap times from the Jackson TCS race. I ran an R1 at 30 degrees timing and I believe Jamie was running a thunder power (not sure about timing). The average 15 laps were within a tenth of each other. Can't go wrong with either. I was told I could have run more timing in the R1 as the motor can take the heat. My motor came off at 137.

as a side note
I want to congratulate Carls sons, Mike and Andrew on a fine outing this past weekend
With a little more practice they will be a force to be watched on the track!
