That was a good time! I had so much brake fade coming down the inside straight... Almost hit that big yellow gong at the end of the corner I dont know how many times. Looking forward to next year

Well guys,

After 4 days of full racing in Ecuador and good attendance of GT Class, here is the podium :

1st : Paolo Morganti - Serpent GT / Novarossi .28 7T / Alpha RC R3 Body / Alpha RC Soft Tires
2nd : Pato Concha - Ofna DM1S / GO .25 6p / Alpha RC R3 Body / Alpha RC Medium Tires
3rd : Marcelo Echeverria - Ofna DM1S / GO .25 6p / Alpha RC R3 Body / Alpha RC Soft Tires

** Rino Lino XRAY GT Proto got 4th Place, small problems during A-Main but the car looks amazing !

Lots of serpents on the race, great to see people pumping up with new chassis in the market. 90% Alpha RC Bodies, 98% Alpha RC Tires.

Podium :





Not everybody but a good look of the environment :





Paolo Morganti and myself (Paolo's Car) :





My car before A-Main :





Partial View of Pit area and driver stand :





Some girls :









Me and my cars (got 5th place on 1/10th Nitro Sedan A-Main) :





My clutch after A-Main, amazed by performance (Thunder Innovations, already in USA) :





Me receiving my 2nd Place A-Main GT Trophy :




My GT Car during one of the qualifiers video : http://youtu.be/a967KB8zIzE




Great experience so far !!, lots of great people and great drivers ...

Thanks Paolo for sharing knowledge permanently on the track !, great race !

P.S. JACKO NEVER USES BRAKES!!!!!!

I don't use a switch, so leads stick out of the box. Hardly ever take the battery out so no need for quick access. (2400 mah lipo)

If you are on the budget, get a Spektrum DX3C + Hitec 985MG x 2 (12,4k on 6v, 14k on life 6.6v)
