What a weekend!!! Flight was delayed on Thursday night and didn't get to hotel until 12:30am. Charged up 3 packs that night (2 shorted out in my battery case that night ) Showed up first thing in the morning on Friday and had about 5 packs of practice. The bite was nutty and I think everyone ended up softening up their car. I just wasn't able to get everything quite right. The car felt and looked good, but I just couldn't get down to where the big boys were.

Call it lack of practice, knowledge, driving, or according to Mr. Seaball - pure lack of talent - either way, I walked away happy. I ended up in the C in 10.5 and the B in 13.5 and I was surrounded by great company in both mains.

I gotta give props to all the Schuie Team - 3 out of the 8 on the team put there Mi3's in A-mains!!!! I can't wait until next year. I loved running brushless!!! Tons of fun!!!

I know Marker was running the SP 13.5/GTB combo in foam and I chose not to run the SP stuff just bc of unfamiliarity

I ran the SP 13.5 in foam and it had some rip. I haven't checked yet but Billy Easton's car had SP stickers on it at the race. I know for sure I'll be ordering more SP motors. Hopefully over the next weekends some of us will be doing more testing and will have more feedback for ya.

Nope, must have missed it. Glad you like them and all the others are cut out. I am going to try to finish them the next few weeks. Hopefully you can put the car up on the podium at DHI!!! Good luck!
