Greg, thanks for posting the video. Though I think I prefer the other video with a different angle. I saw it out on youtube as well. You certainly were unstoppable in qual #3.

If that guy driving the black camaro in the main could have stayed off the pipes a time or two, he may have had the win

For those of you watching/reading, the FSEARA series is a state level series and the VTA class runs under ROAR rules as does all the other classes. I TQ'd this race in VTA with a ROAR compliant car, Trinity D3.5, 7200mah, 1450g......and had to change cars and finished 2nd with a fully VTA compliant car. However, my Novak 25.5 runs pretty well especially on big tracks such as this.

Hopefully the first race date for the freshly rebuilt XRAY T3'12 sporting a new J71 Javelin lid @ MARRCA in Madison, WI. I will have old trusty, the FT TC3 with GT350H lid, there as well.

Going to Bush River Raceway in Columbia, SC. Indoor carpet track with CRC carpet and click-track barriers. Regular layout changes. VTA and USGT are the biggest classes. Come on down and play!

Harbor Hobbies is the place to be this Sunday. Final race of the Mid-West All Star Carpet Series. Some of the best VTA and USGT racers in the country. It will also be a great warm-up for the Scale Nationals in April.

I might have to explain to the wife if we ever visit France. She will wonder why I'm bringing my car. It's for the door prizes honey.
As said, we are in the south west of France, near Bordeaux ... and every races in this region have prizes like these !

Yessir! I'll ask how many pounds of sugar and how many liters of root beer or grape soda is used (depends on what's on sale).

With our track we applied a layer of that black concrete sealer ( asphalt based ) across the entire track. Traction is never a problem to begin with, and it just gets better as the sun heats it up. With the sealer no additional substances has ever needed to be applied. Yes it was a decently large investment, but it made the surface smoother as it filled in alot of the imperfections along with a consistant traction level every race.

If you can find a parking lot that has that on it, most likely you will not have to apply any additional traction additives before racing.
