Then another storm rolls in! At least we got some great racing in!
Will you be at IIC again this year?

Now you talking! don't deny anyone that wants to race.All the old Tamya's and it's clones are still fast and can run Even if they want to run a 540 class just to run cheap. They can always move up later.

We had our first UF1 houston trial run this past saturday!
Well good news bad news! Good new is that the belt drive worked much better and i was able to beat my best time from 23 flat to 22.6! bad new is that its still not fast enough! I ended up annihilating the track record from 22.5 to 21.6 with my 2010 Mantisworx Fq01(some of you may remember that chassis!). There is some talk of a mod class starting soon so im just going to start playing with a mod setup for the FGX since squeezing power wont be a problem. Are there rear foams out there?
THIS IS ONE OF THE COOLEST VIDS THAT I HAVE SEEN IN A WHILE MADE BY IPEARL!! YA GOTTA WATCH THIS AND CHECK OUT MY SAVE AT 1:55!!

Chris Jones and i had our typical battle throughout the day, we tend to go back and forth every two weeks! This day i was on my game! I know he is in the garage preparing for this thursday! I may re release the FQ, its REALLY good right now, superb balance and very agile. F1 is HUGE in Htown right now, twice a week every week!

Since Marcus posted the scoring sheet. If anyone is interested, here's the detailed race breakdown for the UF1 Houston Trial series race.
