I believe Mike was running a REV 6. He was wearing a SpeedMerchant T-shirt on the drivers stand and there was a shot of his 12 scale in the pits

Received my car Thursday and got it built up for the weekend. Few quick laps Friday night to check trims and any quirks. Saturday race day, the car was VERY easy to drive but lap times were off the fast guys by about 2-3 tenths. I haven't driven 1/12 in two years, so I spent the day just trying to feel out the car. Back at the track today for some more laps and adjustments and managed to knock off .5 seconds per lap. Fast laps were equal to track record and the car was still extremely easy to drive. I can't wait to see what this thing really has to offer. So far, so good.

Thanks for the advise guys. Much appreciated.

That's strange...Maybe because mike is also in the wgt classes,which could be the merchant 10th scale not the top...

Nope Dumas has always ran Speed Merchant for 12th scale and probably always will. He did have a pit set up in the TOP area too for working on his TC. This was the first race he has ran TC in a long time and he ran very well too...No rust at all!

Congratulations to EJ on his second place finish at the Snowbirds in 1/12th 17.5 for his first big race outing with the Rebel 12

We'll post the sheet as soon as I check with him on any changes he did to the set up I put on it before the race

Josh and the TOP crew deff got it right the first time! Every top car I seen there looked awesome. I did not see a single one that looked bad on the track at all! The steering balls and ball cups are phenomenal too! A set of those ended up on my xray...zero slop but suppppper free!!

Kudos
