Awesome day with my arc black. I run 21.5 scale spec. this was our last series race of 5 races today. i have only ran the car 2 races before today. made a couple roll center changes to the rear and made the car so much better. ended up with the TQ (qual points) and over all TQ by time. the race organizers give away nice shot glasses with that series race etched on the glass. i have missed the previous races by just that much. lol. but today was different. The car was on rails. I ended up with my first shot glass (WIN!) and the series championship win! great day for the arc cars! we are starting to see more of them lately. great car and works very well. if anybody want to see my setup ill post it up upon request.

Grats on your win Nothing beats earning something after working hard for it.
Please post your setup on the FB page and/or petit RC.

Yes great job Doug! Your car was one if not the best looking 21.5 Scale Spec cars I've seen yet on the asphalt this summer!

Yesterday we also had great showings in the 17.5 class. Past ROAR National champion Ritchie Reynolds was blistering fast in 17.5. Due to some racing incidents in the main he had to retire early. Mike Boyle a new racer that started racing this past winter was also laying it down in the A main.

All in all a great showing for ARC this weekend in the Pacific NW! Great job guys!

Great weekend of racing. Qualified 3rd in mod behind Paul Lemieux and Mike Gee. Finished in the same order. I should have put fresh tires on for the main but I don't think the results would have changed any. I was very happy with the car and even happier with the compliments that I got from Paul after the race. There are a lot of fingerprints on my car now. haha. Very impressed.

Little tip that I do to the bottom screw on the steering knuckle. Get a 3x10mm (stock is 3x8) and grind it down 1mm so it can grab as much material. This is a disorder I developed from previous cars I know the arc is known to be a tough car, but just for peace of mind

Thaks Kody. That means alot to me. My arc felt really good. So much so that i could just drive it with the confidence that it would do exactly what i wanted it to do. it did feel a little slow in the right left right transition in the chicane and i think i could solve that with a little heavier oil in the shocks. other than that i cannot complain about the car at all. its tough as nails and fast fast fast!

We used to have dots on all the corners so we developed a natural racing line. It's hard to convince yourself to cut a corner where a dot used to be. Mind games. Haha. Paul is a machine.
