On the road back from Port Jervis. Finally got to put in my first race of the season! Felt great!
First I want to point out a true class act. I broke a part in practice, and didn't have a spare. Without even me asking, Jermaine offered to take the part out of his own car so i could run. So big shout out and thanks to you Jermaine! And props for finishing 3rd with your other car which wasn't even race prepped.
I Qualified 3rd and finished 2nd. Only Aja, Jose and me made 17 laps in quals. The car was super fast, and I had a blast!

And special thanks to my man Big Dave, Rob B and Courtney for the pitwork!

Hey guy
Can if ask a question if you guys can help. How much are a set (4) sweep wheels and tyre are. Because they are a bit pricey here in Australia and I will be in the states in a couple of months for a holiday.
Cheers

Hi...

Bruckner Hobbies has them listed for $26.99. a set (two tires)
I think thats a standard price for them here in the US at the moment.

Hope that helps

Regards
BM

It look like a bigger version of the protoform srs-n 200mm body for 1/10 tourer. I like the shape of it to but it's a bit pricy her in OZ.

Another good weekend for my kid and TeamC! his car was flawless and the only work i did to it the weekend was replace the one way and swap to my TOP 9port for him!! He had a hard time keeping up with Aaron in the qualifiers so i put my engine in it on KILL and then it became a battle! it was back and forth for the first half of the race but when Marcus came in to pit i guess he was picking his nose or something and didnt keep the engine reved so it loaded upa nd flamed out and that was all it took he couldnt catch Aaron so settled for second! good race though really good race between those two!
