Wow, where do I begin?
First, I have to complement ROAR on an outstanding job. Once the motor tech situation got resolved, things were really smooth. I've haven't been a particularly big supporter of ROAR as of late, but the guys at the race were total class. And they were willing to listen to the racers.
Horsham is an awesome track. You guys have a great thing going out there. Al, hanulec, Larry, Dennis and all the others, you went so far above and beyond to make this truly the perfect event. It's easily the best time I've had traveling to a race ever.
LiveRC, take my money. Putting those videos online and sending someone out to support on-road goes a LONG way with me.
Did anybody have more fun than our corner of the pits? Is that even possible? Scrimo and Dawson nearly sent me to the ER I laughed so hard.
Jon Williams for being a good sport!
Mike Gee's driving in A3 of 17.5 was fantastic. It's hard to follow and pressure someone like he was doing to Art without hitting them or blowing out yourself. Very respectful driving, something that seems all too rare these days. That sort of thing really gets lost in the shuffle, but it stood out to me as a highlight from all the racing I watched. And kudos to Art for maybe being the most clutch driver at the nats. So close to a title. Xavier, though, man he earned it. Perfect runs get it done.
I got to meet Ralph as "syndr0me" instead of Adam. He was pretty nice about it.
I think the middle of the B to the middle of the A in 17.5 sedan was separated by about 3 seconds. Crazy. Too bad I was on the wrong side of that, but the competition there was fantastic. So many good drivers putting in nearly flawless runs. I didn't tap a thing in my run, it just took a few blown lines and a few lost tenths. That's the kind of racing I like to be a part of!
And finally, the XRay T4, what a ride. At a race where cars were traction rolling every lap, it stayed flat the entire week no matter how hard I sawed on the wheel. I nearly quit RC after driving a car at Snowbirds that rolled non-stop. It was very nice to be on the other end of that problem for once.
