Can't speak for CA but we typically do not out here, no need track is prep'ed with soda/sugar.

I have a question though, we don't really have anything formalized for rules here. I was wondering what your take is on holes cut in the body for cooling (windshield or whatever)

I've got the new pmt's, we'll see how it goes. I've got to put an engine in my Mazda 3, it's on the hook ready to drop in, so I "should" be done by Saturday, but that car has to be running by this weekend.

Glad to hear you're coming out. Finally get to put a face to the name shake your hand and race with you. Good stuff.

If you need a place to ship your R/C stuff, you already have my address from past orders. I'll bring it to the track for you.

I would tell my SoCal peeps to order stuff prior to you coming out, but you already have free shipping.

If you are going to run in Corona, it's really not necessary. They've got great traction there but a little sauce now and then isn't bad.

I usually just wipe my tires clean after every run with Simple Green. Gets the dust off and leaves them a little tackle. I use that on my Sweeps with the PMTs not necessary......the PMTs are liked glued to the track already.

Before there was Mazda, there was this 1969 Alfa Romeo 1750 GTaM.



Take the time to watch the video round Nurburing.. Pretty sick for a 1969 1.8 litre 4 pot

+ YouTube Video

Google this address... 806 N. Main St Cibolo TX and zoom in on satellite view and you will see how many RX7's we have, all of our race cars, old school rotary's, and prototypes are in the building though. Last time I counted there were almost 100 RX7's, and I just bought two more last week. LOL

We have everything from a 17,000 mile 69 R100 (barn find), RX2's, RX3's, RX4's, RX5's (Cosmo's) RH and LH drive, 1st gen RX7's RH and LH drive, including a 79 prototype and a 79 preproduction that was used for journalist testing, as well as 2nd and 3rd gen RX7's and an RX8. My daily driver is a 91 Turbo II.

Damn, you guys got me talking about RX's on a RC car site again....
