Ralph Burch use to be a kid no one could touch, there is some Canadian kid who is really fast now too. Now the kids are playing video games and not playing with RC cars so we don't see it as much. So I have no doubt Lon III and Noah will be whooping on all of us in short order. I just say rack up the wins over them now while we can.
that would be great, nothing on your mind but racin. hope we get more youngsters too keep our club and others going.

Well, yes there is. Please manufacture your retro J pan car. I drove down to Toledo this morning, I must have missed you.

Default Little lost 3-port

Hay, any body that was at the race today, please check and see if there is a 3-port NR motor stuck to the bottom of one of your shoes, I've lost one somewhere.
Today's pan racing was outstanding! Good going Ned, armed with his French fry car, he darn near ambushed us all. Could have been the perfect day for him except for my Anti Monkey Butt car was there. It was good racing on everyone's part and the pan racing is second to done when it comes to having fun!
Where was Phil? Farmer John I'm sure was there with pockets of bucks looking for a Super "J". It was nice to meet John, hope he's racing soon!
So I think at the end of the year, we need to form a overall list of the pan racers. Then if you raced in at least 4 races, You've earned the right to display your placement number on your 2013 pan car. No one else will be able to us that number in 2013. This is sort of a mini awards system that we did years ago, it was fun then, why not now? What do you think?
Switch to GT bodies for next club race.
LETS RACE SOME MORE!!!

Sounds good to me. Maybe we should do this with all the classes?

Default A blind guy could see it!

Some numbers and a sticker or two makes one car look much neater then the other two.
Joe is right, the pan class is a blast! We just have to figure how to get Matt to make the jump to a car that will makes it threw the day. Don't get me wrong, his Ass RC 300 is fast, it just doesn't last. As a results, we have a fast driver doing allot of watching.
Speaking of Joes, I knew Joe Tuttle had a loose screw but not his car, let alone 3 of em.
Farmer, keep waitting!
With the track time we've had so far, we know that HP is not that much of a factor for pan racing (French guys allow 7- port motors). The good 3-ports are going away and the Motornica combos have 5-ports. I'm thinking for next year we open the motors up to 7-port also. I'd bet our 3-ports would still be more then enough! What do you think?
