I just looked at the calendar and I get paid on the 9th. So I'm thinking I might come down to watch over the weekend. IDK. I think the sportsman mains are that day aren't they?

Have you mentioned to anyone about seperating the Pros from the Experts. anyone with a chassis sponsor would be a class, then partial sponsors/great local drivers in a class. I still think that's a good idea.

I know right.. It's not fair to the expert guy's who arent sponserd, and who race mostly club races.

Maybe we should contact Mr. Eppes and see what he thinks. He will at least listen and give feedback. But it might end up diluting the classes. IDK. I'm still not good enough for that to affect me. LOL.

I had carbon shoes in my buggy...I ran the life out them. Last saturday the engine would rev high and the clutch would slowly and steadily engage. It was weird. It wouldn't really hit. Looking at the shoes today...I see why. The carbons are less than half the normal thickness.

How do you tell if the springs are worn out? They only have a gallon so far. I don't know what to look for.

You clutch sping's need to be changed when they start rubbing on the clutch bell. Since your shoe's are worn the spring's are most likely sharp at the end..Time for a new set.. Oh, wait you run the losi clutch don't you? Im running a mugen clutch in my car so im only famliar with the sandard 3 shoe clutch..

Yep, I'm on Losi clutch. The springs on the carbon shoes were rubbing the CB. But the aluminum shoe springs weren't. IDK. I'll just use new springs to be safe.

How long do carbons normally last? Well...two carbon/two aluminum.
