If Joe needs help with the old mill's rebuild or the new one race prepped and broke in let Chris or I know. We can take care of that for him.

I'll let him know. He tore the motor down yesterday and believes the needles got damaged leading to the unstable performance of the motor. Hopefully he's got it figured out.

When do they update the race results? I left shortly after the main and want to see my lap times.

Sweet weazel, i drove a rtr with a updated steering servo and my 2.0 race roller the same day both brand new a few months back and it wasn't much different just alittle less sharp and reactive could use alittle more motor down the road. Probally a better option for starting out i believe. It's not like new racers can even really feel what the car is doing till they get consistant enoungh.

I'm hardly new (might be tough to see with my first performance ) but it is a very forgiving car. The motor lacks low end grunt and has a very linear power band so it is a nice power plant for the beginner (or experienced beginner). Sure is nice to be back!
