There's basically A track 10 miles north of here. Pretty small though but not bad at all.

Asphalt? Bending corners? What are we lookin at for an hour drive for decent TC racing.. even add good offroad racing places.. CP would be my crown jewel if it lives up to the hype... *I am obsessed with Nitro Touring*

I went out tonight for a bit of track time with the 5.5R and oh my gosh this motor is wicked!!
Settings for #4 was @ Level III and #9 @ 7.5-degrees.
This SP GT really shows it spunk with these MOD motors. Can you say smooth? 3-five minute bouts and the motor only reached 130-degrees. I'm sure I could easily anticipate an extra 8 or so degrees running against comp. Well within reason.
I'll try some Mags all around next time and get the lap counter to not count some laps

Adam, where my 4.5R!!!!

The second time he did it, the parts all shrunk and were ruined beyond repair. The kit was essentially destroyed, and even though he paid for all new parts, the car is still in pieces yet to be raced.

I wouldn't recommend sending your expensive kits down there. There is a company in New York though, that does a LOT of R/C kits. Eric Anderson (EA Motorsports) referred me for next time, but I'll have to find their info. I didn't use them because I don't think they can do hot pink.
