OK Stan. Time to step up. 2017 IIC will be WGT-R (rubber).

Are you coming to the IIC?

Don't worry...I will be the slow guy...LOL

Wow October...even better. I just might be able to swing it. When did GT-R get added?

Default new shell...

Porsche 911 GT1

FYI, optional bumper #1757 fills out the nose perfectly. Some of the MARCCA guys never get to see the front of the car...

Stan,

Yep. First week of October for on-road followed by a week of off-road the next week. Both on the same carpet...jumps added for off-road.

World GT-R wasn't actually "added" this week. Scotty switched away from WGT (foam) to WGT-R (rubber). Probably due to lack of WGT entries to date.

I would probably not go for WGT again; even through, it was a great class in the past. RIP WGT!

Bill

Pretty. I did use that body on one of my cars for last year's IIC. Guest driver did get into the A main using it.

But, of course, it was orange...LOL

I do like an orange Porsche...mine are Jagermeister whereas Bill rocks the 76 scheme.

The British guest driver was Dave Sedgewick. I was also in the A-main with my Lark PFM10 McLaren

Already booked in for WGT-R at this year's IIC...counting the days!

Hey Mark. Getting ready to do battle again here.

Is Dave coming back again?

iic was a blast last year and thanks to Bill getting me a seat at the CRC table I was able to get my car dialed in, now that they went away from that foam nonsense I might have to reconsider my October plans. Also thinking I might rock a little orange there myself!

Yippee! Paul's coming...Paul's coming...LOL

Calling all WGT-R racers. Calling all WGT-R racers.

Looking to have a few full heats at this year's IIC.

And...same as last year...I will likely have a extra WGT-R to offer up to a deserving soul.

Cheers!

Bill

SMC 5800s. SMC still sells the best battery for the money. The Hobbywing 1S Pro Spec or the XR10 1S are both very good.
