Default Thank you

I just want to thank you all for your support and condolences during this very rough time in our life. It has been very hard to go back to the house and see the damage knowing that everything I had that was a hobby is gone. It is really heartwarming for me to see your posts and know that I have the best friends/ support group on the planet. I really do consider each and every one of you family and it has shown during this time. Thank you all very much and I look forward to being able to see all of you very soon.

Thank You,
Chris and Victoria Vierra

Rob, You are very welcome. Though not our quickest turn around that bugger took a bit to seat in.

As always you can reach me just about anytime at racecrafter@gmail.com if you need help or have questions.

Top 5 interesting stats about Track Star from 2010:

On the team side:

1) Placed in the "A" 93% of races entered.

2) 98% of that was podium!

3) 36% was two Track Star drivers.

4) 75% of that was for the win!

5) These stats are from 1/12 carpet, 1/10 EP Off road, 1/10 EP TC & 1/8 Nitro Off Road!

Car prep customers:

1) 64% of the racers we built cars for had never made the "A" main.

2) 35% of them made the "A" first time with their prepped cars.

3) 10% of them went on to win their first "A" right out of the gate.

4) the other 25% consistently still make the A

5) and quite a few have won an A main here and there. (No solid stats on this)

Shop work: (These blew me away....)

1) 117 engines broken in.

2) 104 ESC's programmed.

3) 61 fully prepped cars built.

4) 87% of that being off road, 62% of that EP Short Course.

AND....... (Drum roll please)

5) 2,570 customer tires mounted and glued! ( I couldn't believe it either!)


A HUGE thank you to all who have supported Track Star in the past and who still support us today. Thank you to the vendors who took a chance on us in the beginning we hope that we have met your expectations in promoting your products.

I was initially a little concerned about the carb being sealed, thinking I'd probably have to loosen the pinch bolt and move it some. Dunno how ya did it, but it sits just right, don't have ta move it at all, not even the ball end!

Gridirons/Snipers are the fastest tires but take the most skill to be fast with them-its easy to overdrive these tires. Impacts/Revolvers are the next fastest and are a little more forgiving. Enduros are next, not sure what the PL eqivalents are, maybe Calibers. I ran there this past weekend and was happiest with Gridirons/Impacts. Supersofts in the morning/evening, softs during the day when it was warmer.
