Yeah...it was pretty close overall. Only mistakes made it possible for lapping as all the cars were really close. Hopefully next race I won't have blurry contacts

Looking forward to racing my car tomorrow, been a long two weeks. I will be ordering the new car very soon as Vegas gets closer. I hope to see a few more BMI guys at the IIC besides Burt and I.

I ran the Speed 8 HD the last 2 years. The AMR was the most predominate body out there last year.

Of course it will depend on the track size but I've been running 36/37 pinion, 76 spur, and 44mm tires on a low grip med carpet track Tekin on 212.

yeah you definately will be running baby tires for the high grip and stiffening things up suspension wise.

Thanks Chris, I needed a starting point before I melted any of my motors. I will be testing on a track that is bigger than the IIC, but ultimately the IIC is what I'm testing for.

Np its a safe starting point, our track is slightly smaller than the IIC and I usually have motor temps in the low hundreds. What we have found here is that I can run more rollout but due to higher motor temps and hotter tires the lap times have a greater falloff at the end of the run. As allways your mileage may vary.
