i think mr twister said the usual suspects cf,bt,cb,ib, and best to have a set of holeshots when the traction comes up

EA, I know where you live. Those spy shots were not supossed to be leaked to the public. I guess I'll have to come up w/ something even worse!

Thanks to everyone for getting signed up on Rcsignup!!!!!! last count was around 90 entries. We are gonna have a great weekend of racing!!!!! The track was great this past weekend, w/ 40+ entries. Holeshots seemed to work best for me. The track was real fast, Its a shame I gotta tear it up and start all over this week, I was finally getting it down. Look forward to seeing everyone!!!!!

I ended up running AKA city blocks for the 2min main i had during warm up they were dialed, i have raced on this track for 3 years and the holeshots have always been a winner in truggy for me, but i will say my boy Brandon was right about the AKA, they were good.


Post Script, beware of metalflake blue losi 8T 2.0

There is probably about 4-5 acres of parking around the track in the grass. How much of it can actually be used I am unsure of. I think there will be plenty of room though for everyone. There are not type of hookups though. Bring your own power for Campers and trailers.

They have a reasonable amount of track power. If you are bringing something with high power demands plus with the amount of racers there, I would definitely bring a gen. I will check with Kevin tomorrow about camping on-site. I don't think there will be an issue, but I will double check with him.

Practice time is posted on RC sign up. If you haven't signed up, now is a good time. The clock is ticking.....

If you have any other questions that have not been answered pm them to me and I will answer them or find out. Kevin and Co have been busy getting everything ready.

Shane, i will bring the Radical to the track.


any racers that will be attending the Rd 1 RC Pro race this weekend, if you have new engine's that will need to be runin, LMK asap and we can have a spot reserved to do it at the shop for you, i will be at the track back and forth getting engine's done and returning them, I live about 5 min from thew track so it will be a good idea to get them on the bench.

I told u, never dought me on those tires! I was watching u warm up for the main and WOW! U may want to try Ibeams in the rear next time! The Ibeam/city combo works great during the heats and late in the afternoon when the sun is doing down moisture starts coming back out all citys work great but some may be better with the Ibeam/ Citys! Thats funny on the blue Losi!
