Just a heads up.

I also understand young Mr. Whiteside has his Battery Giant powered car just a Flyyyyynnnnn.


Should be some freaky fast fun qualifiers!!!!

Later,
Huh? Darrald....what are you smoking...

Bill will be at a race in CO so he will not be there....plus I dont think he handed out 2 laps to everyone...he did hand them their arse at the last race but it wasnt that shameful.

Rich has a 416 now so there isnt any reason for failure anymore.

RJ has been a force in the USGT class all winter nothing should change....

It should be a heck of a Nationals on the 14th!!!

It was bigger then VTA up here in our area in the Midwest All-Star Carpet series....more repete racers then VTA this season too. So its going strong up here in this area.

Here is our final points standings you can see what the turn out was like for the two classes over 5 race and 2 states.

I think it would be great if USGT/RCGT or whatever held to HPI Xpatterns on cool rims. The reality is most places are running some type of spoked premount.


The Solaris Mediums are carpet worked really well and probably a bit faster than the XPattern in any compound.

There will be some good USGT racing this weekend at the final round of the Hurricane All Star Series at "The Track".

+1 on HPI X-Patterns... most popular choice here locally are the 4495, belted, stock inserts. Many rim choices, tires last forever. Track here runs Lemans style, VTA and "RCGT/USGT" together.. everyone running 25.5 motors. Pretty cool to watch!

Tell Rich he cannot sit in the "reserved" section anymore since he has a Tamiya. Now he has to sit somewhere between the Thai Tamiya Clan or the Stegan Hobbies sponsored guys!

LOL

USGT gonna be ugly in two week!

If I can figure out how to put a wing on this Spice Starion I will rock it!

This race sounds like its going to be a great one. With the close racing in the Hurricane series and down at the Southern nats everybody should be in the run for the title. Now I'm going to have to work on my car and make sure i actually make the A this year.

C'mon RJ working on the car is overrated. I don't even know what weight oil is in my car. I'd say I'm going to win, but I like to leave before the Mains anyway LOL

I do apologize for the lateness of this as well as the not having the spec tires sooner. This is and should not be any reflection on anyone other than myself for not having them sooner.

We will have a "special" run-in/practice time for USGT on the spec tires for those coming in on Saturday, time TBD. Set of 4 pre-mounts will be under $20.

and i have no clue on what kind of gearing is in my car, i don't think its ever been changed. But I've got some big changes i'm going to do on my car for this race to make sure i can make it to the front of the pack.
