I went to the points series race in Omaha. The guys up there were asking about all of the 17.5 sedan guys-- they miss you too.

I'll try to make it back on the Tuesday after the JcConcepts race.

Yeah I was hoping to go up there, but the boss went to Texas to run one last 1/8 scale race. Oh well eh?

Anyways if you bring your VTA with you. I need to do some testing on the purple machine.

My VTA was definitely quick. I TQ'd with only minimal practice time. (The doors were locked and the phone was on the answering machine when I showed up at 9:00, so I hit the mall for a while and returned later. Nobody told me you have to go in the SIDE door. D'OH!!!) Omaha runs a single qualifying session and uses only the single fastest lap. I ran about 4 minutes, pitted for fresh tire glop, then did about 3 more laps to set my fastest time.

Yes we are. It is a points Sunday as well.

For those onroad guys thinking about coming out tomorrow night either check here or call for an update on the carpet's flatness. It's rolled back out but I won't know until tomorrow if it's going to lay flat without some persuasion.

I'll be there regardless. And I promise I won't complain.

If you want, I can also bring some persuasion. It's a liquid which might work if poured directly onto the carpet, but usually works best when imbibed by the driver.

Attention Carpet Onroad Racers,

After much tugging, pulling and a double vacuuming, the carpet appears to be laying flat once again. However I've got a good 2 or more hours of reinstalling side boards and putting down a layout still ahead of me.

Bottom line: the track should be ready for racing tonight but it'll be around 6 PM before it's ready.

nitro on road is usually done in the summer and your closest place will probably be in topeka or once in a while lawrence other than that the next closest nitro on road will be in lincoln ne in the summer fastlane no longer has an onroad track for nitro if you have electric onroad fastlane has a carpet track that we race on year round
