I told you guys that I would come over to race with you, just say when. Anyone coming with you (you could use the help, LOL) Just kidding, you know we're here for you.
Hey Mr Lon Sr
Yes I was hoping Pt Jervis will have a nice two day event that will feature the pan class for a bigger event that would bring you and the others here. At least once this summer. I will talk more with them to see if we can coordinate a date that fits with both our schedules.

Plus your cars will be great to race with the current pan cars too! A win, win for you! Keep in mind that a bump and power don't mix well either, keep the power down and go faster.
.............Thanks for your comments and insights Das 1/8 Mopar. You are going to think I am crazy but I am thinking about putting a modfied OS .18 TZ with a 8mm carb on it in my prototype!! The flex car is really light and I suspect that it does not need the extra torque you would find in a .21 = wheelspin. Here is a picture of one of the fastest cars I ever owned a V1RRR with a slightly modfied OS .18 TZ

The OS .18TZ gives you alot of bang for your buck even in stock trim but if you modfied it look out!!!

Talking

Bill McLean and I assembled my WRC EVO between qualifying rounds at the Canadian On Road Carpet Nationals yesterday in Welland Ontario Canada. We showed it to some of the Canadian Racers to build interest.

I just want mine to be tricker than Jeff's.

Default Loose Screws!!

Matt, You've got more loose screws then ever, what's the deal?? The season is closing in on us. Time to get with the program. I fired up 3 of my Motonicas in the dinning room, good to see all 8 wheels turning. Anything I can do to help, let me know.
