Cool and thanks guys. I raced for the first time yesterday but didn't get any practice time. I qualified 11th out of 17 racers. Not bad for my first time I thought. Man! What fun!! And I placed 2nd in the B main race by the end of the day. The car was excellent, it had a bit of push off power going in the corners but I got some of it out by the main race. Best part was I didn't tear up my car like many other drivers did. I tried to make finishing the most important thing over going fast. The fastest guys on the track turned 14.xx second laps and I turned a handful of 16's and a ton of 17's. I did better than I thought I would. The car is pretty easy to drive once I got used to it a little bit.
The next race in two weeks is down in Ft Myers FL where the Winternats are held. I went there twice to watch a few years ago and really wish I had a bit more track time before I race near the metal "boards" Bang! Clang! or whatever you want to call the horrific noise the cars make when they smack the metal.
I may get to go to Kissimmee next weekend for a practice day (I hope) apparently the track is huge. I had some of the best fun driving the 1/8 on road in a real long time.
I am very lucky and old oval racing friend is now one of the top Florida 1/8 drivers and he is taking time to teach me on setup, engines etc specific to on road. I can't wait to race again!
