Seemed like we used to do a ton of throttle steering back in the day too. Lots of throttle blip, off, on, off, on to motor around a corner. Course we ran nice size wings but the bodies were much more scale so rear end bite was tricky.

Glad to see you all on the thread! I wish I could shoot some video of the GLC quals but I haven't figured out how to film and drive at the same time.

Lon Burling has been great to work with this week. He has spent a lot of time with the WRC chassis and helped me get to a nice setup. The car is dialed, and we are having a great time running. I am sitting in 2nd place after two rounds. Ran fastest lap in Round 1.

Round two I was on a TQ run but ran into traffic. We will run three rounds Saturday, and I will try to get video of the car in action. You will all be impressed! The car is amazing on this track, and I am surprised at the awesome traction and corner speed.

Thanks to everyone at the GLC for putting on a very professional race. Wish you all were here.

We have 10 drivers in the Pan Class this week, and I think we can double that in 2014.

More tomorrow
JI

There are a couple of ways to film and drive. You can order some really neat sunglasses from Cabela's that have a camera inside them.
Hunter's Specialties® i-Kam Extreme Video Eyewear

or you can attach a camera to your hat.

You should video the Pan car races I believe it would promote the interest in this class.

Thanks everyone! It was a great race with a fantastic group of guys and girls. Lon Burling Sr is a real anchor for the class in Toledo and helped a lot throughout the week. Also, thanks to Jari for great pit work in the main. I will write more about the car and GLC week when I get back.
