Got to see "the beast" run, the engine modded by Mantisworx is amazingly fast. A few tweaks have been done in the set up to suit personal preferences of the owner, it's now doing quick laptimes.

Actually, it's the track owner who's making a spec class as he is dealer/distributor in this part of the world, it's beyond our control...to be able to choose another brand or supplier...

Congrats on the Team C pick up that's awesome!

I feel your pain man... I just went through it too... Yesterday I was putting multiple engines in my shopping cart with a bunch of spares for the GT and then I realized we have less than 3 races left here in Utah I sucked it up and ordered up all my electric carpet gear instead. Needless to say no nitro is not good for me, I soak my tool box in it and take a fuel bottle to carpet racing just in case I need a pick me up

Looking forward to next season as well, hopefully we get to bump into one another on the track.

Now I know why they call you Terrible"Ty"..... A little shot of Nitro during heats.... That's just TERRIBLE!!

But I feel you winters are harsh in Utah at times, got to get that race "fix" in whenever possible.

You need to head South for the winter, LOL
