Sarcasm "REALLY" For 3 months the lap record has been 49 laps and Saturday Kevin Jelich never having driven the car before went out and did 50 laps! it was very impressive to watch. Later in the main Tim Copp won driving his damper tube X-Ray with the Rebel in second. We found out later that the battery in the Rebel had not been recharged between rounds. As I said it was the first West Coast appearance of the Rebel, next up will be a run in Modified!

so what you are saying is that Tim sucks and can only win when other racers only run half charged packs? lol

The factory assures us that they are on the verge of shipping out Rebel kit and parts order. The above mentioned car is one of the two advanced copies sent to us for testing. A few more will be available to team drivers for the Snowbirds, but those will be arriving at about the same time as the regular shipment

Well, the pack was half-charged but as we all know tim is half-baked so it all evens out

Actually, this layout has been up for a few months and Tim is only the second person to turn 50 laps, and he set the track record

Don't want to hijack this thread but what was Kevin running for horsepower in the awesome new Rebel? First edition Team Powers 17.5!!!! And what was Tim running to set the new track record? Yeah! That's right, the Team Powers new Plutonium 17.5!!

I'm not above a shameless plug.

No comment.

I just got a phone call from Top USA to stop hijacking their thread.
