I wouldn't mind running 2s 17.5 boosted, sounds fun.

Here are our 2 BMI's that we run at freedom park

I'm not sure why they picked 10.5/1c @ Camarillo (I believe their rules are "OPEN") - but they guys chose that setup - so that's what we run when we join them.

I run OVAL, and I'm a 2c guy - but I've enjoyed the 10.5/1c speeds on the road course - and the setups w/ timing are pretty dang quick on this fairly tight track.

If it was a big open track (like the old RANCH, or REVELATION then 2c / 10.5 for SURE!)

Camarillo gets between 105 and 118 entries on their bi-monthly club races, and NO WGT cars that I've seen. (I don't think the SPEC WGT tires on the narrow chassis cars would do well here personally)

...hey Mike, what were you guys running in 1/12th? 13.5/1c open?

Nice looking shells!!

Extra side wings will give you a better handling/ more stable car.

Do you have a chassis pics from those bmi's?

Hey Joe,

Yes we were running 13.5 1s open speedo. Are you and Brian coming down this weekend?

2WD Thank you, I do the paint work for my son and I. I do not have any pics of the chassis but I could this evening. Thanks for the tip I will add the side (spill plates) on before our race this weekend.

As for that race in Barcelona, in that week we have the worlds over here at Heemstede.
We have scheduled a race on 3th June, not in AMSA track but S. OLIVA a little village very near to the beach in "Costa Daurada" only 5 minutes away from Calafell and there are a lot of campings in this area.



We are planning more races for all this summer long.

For a ROAR Nationals or something I think if WGT and Pro10 were both part of the program you could get a solid number of entrants for both classes as well as 12th and TC

We've been having upward of 10 cars - as many as 13 (and we ALL RUN TOGETHER in the Main)

Couple 10L's - a HPI RoadStar 235mm, but mostly CRC GenX's w/ the 235 width kit and wide BMI cars.

(They do open timing ESC's w/ 10.5, although I SUCK so I stayed w/ no timing until I get better)
Where can I get 10L and Road Star parts?

For the front end, any three bolt front end currently available will work.

For the rear, some t-plates from other cars will work and some won't. Also check the rear axle hub lengths to see if it will work as most 1/10th parts are for 200mm.

Nice track
Should be a challenge to find the right rollout on that one.
This because of the tight corners and long straight

regards Roy
