Hey Raman, YES!!! Me, Steve D and Omar will be there for sure. I'm trying to get Eric to show up with his Losi conversion as well. Bring that badass Tamiya on Sunday and lets have some fun.

UF1 will be running. Can't wait to finally run with those guys. We're running, GT8E, F1, Mod and Pro Stock (boosted 17.5) Come on out.

I've owned a GT since 2007 and have tried GRP, Ipanema, Sweep and PMT. The tyre I keep going back to are the PMT. These cars are heavy, much like 1/5 scales.. And there are 2 brands that run on those cars, GRP and PMT and I think there is a good reason for it. The rubber they use is much like 1:1 tyres. They take a while to warm up and afterwards get sticky and remain consistent throughout the race.

LOL you never know. I'll never forget my sophomore year in high school. Kid next to me was stoned out of his mind taking the midterm. His face was resting on the table fillin in the multiple choice. On Monday the teacher announced the highest grade was a 94. It was his LOL.

I started to laugh hysterically.. Everyone starred at me as of I was insane lol.

Picked me up a Viper lid. The realism of the cars is what drew me to GT's. Now I get to try out my new airbrush!
