Last week was the first 30 lap runs. Rui 30 5:14(Bad last lap) and Dennis 30 5:10 Both in the 3rd round. This week was the first 31 lap run Goat. Enough arguing over the slow class.

Back to the topic at hand. The Top car.

How's the grip at Horsham compared to, say, Vegas?

I would say at the end of the night last night it was 90 percent as high if not right there. Traction seems a little bit different because of the different circumstances, The carpet isn't glued down and its on smooth concrete. At the end of the night my shoes stuck to the groove and some people put on non jaco rubbers and were flipping of the track.

Cool, sounds like a fun place to race. I've been watching the videos.

I feel in love with the Photon all over again this weekend in Memphis! It was their 2nd annual "Fall Brawl" and the last big show of the year.

17.5 TC = TQ + WIN

13.5 TC = 2ND (Melvin from Nexus Racing got the win) way to go Melvin

VTA = TQ + WIN

This car is a beast on Asphalt!

No just everything rubber spec and no problems with to much grip and rolling over.

I never ran the stock rubber chassis. I built my car with the 2.0 lipo rubber chassis and have had no issues with traction. If anything I usually end up with too much traction and have been accused of running a car with 5-way omni-flex.

I can do that. This was an asphalt race though so I dont know how many people will find them handy coming into rug season.
