Can someone please tell us why there was a discussion about tire additive in Lostallo?
Was someone caugth using that stuff? I guess I will have to double-check at local races with little or no scrutineering what the fast boys rub onto their tires... Cheaters, shame on you!

You should read Josh's report daily. IFMAR apperently did not put it in the rules for this year's event, so it really wasn't illegal when they were doing it. They smelled it on the tires, it became a big deal for a day, IFMAR came down with a ruling with immediate effect baning it, problem solved.

I believe it was the right decision in the big picture of things.

No need to push the 'button' just yet.

Redrc is here now and there will be lots of pics now. Josh and I both had problems getting internet access last night so updates for yesterday and today will be up on www.cefx.net later tonight.

Hello Josh;

Hey - I just read on RedRC that you got a few things figured out - resulting in a 5th place run. Awsome!

Good luck to you and Patrick and the whole team! Go get em!

Hey Dale!

Thanks again for the bodies!! Everything is working great and hopefully tommorow we can improve a little to make the top 4 and be sure to have at least 1 Protoform in the Final!! Also, Shimo and Patrick are running the 909 so it should be possible to try and get at least 3 in as they are both really quick.
