Yeah, the dust was real bad. Got the car running really good until the dirt got on the track. That was real tough. Those winds were sick. I couldnt believe that the tent blew over.lol You looked real good out there bro. Congrats on the win. Dont get discouraged, the track usually isnt that slippery. Normally our cars would have been glued. I went from 13.5 lap times in the 1st 2 heats to not being able to sniff a 14. The track was really bad towards the end of the day from the sand blowing onto it.

I went to the blue center spring also and the car was dialed. I ran pink rears w/ lilac fronts and went with the 5 degree reactive caster blocks but other than that we seem to be running the same thing.

Had first race with copperhead today, and it was weapon! Bit of set up change made it very fast. I got TQ and fastest lap of the day which is pretty sure lap record for 12th scale at my home track, about 1 sec faster than my previous personal best. Iím very happy with new car. Thanks Jason & BMI for great car!
Now all I need is few spare parts, my friend ordered more than week ago but some reason still yet to come. I hope they come before next race which is big race so I can push car harder with out fear of not having any spares.

My car gets faster every time I run it. Getting comfortable with it, and tweeking the setup here and there. I am enjoying running 12th again, and the car has been just a joy to build and drive. IMHO, best car from Jason and BMI to date.
