Two more TQ's yesterday. Won Mod. Lined up in 17.5 on the pole. One of the other driver's decided to take another lap before lining up and my rear arm paid for it. He felt worse about it than I did. New car coming in a couple of weeks and asphalt season begins. Can't wait to see what this thing does outside.

Big congratulations to Vince Jackson. Vince is getting his first national title in electric instead of nitro where he is a terror.

Vince is a very gifted racer. The question is when is he going to start getting ready for the 1/10 Nitro World in Porter, TX this summer?

Vince is also awesome on rubber on asphalt. In the video, Vince is driving the orange XRAY 009. He might be a tad slower with his TOP car when Jackson RC starts the season on April 24th.

Also I included a custom fan mount I made up for the car. Maybe it will give someone a idea if they wanted to mount a fan. Keeps the weight low, and is adjustable if I change motor position due to gearing. Enjoy!
