Hello Evolva fans. We are back from the Nat's. Evolva qualifies 1-2-3. Finished second.
A Main breakdown:
One MRX 4
Boy, this is one tough car. What a beating Scott's car took on the false start of the A main. As Scott's car was being placed on the track - the starter yelled "go" - the flag hadn't hit the ground. Scott grabbed plastic -- bad news, the car was still being held by the roll bar - Wheelie time. Of course, as it wheelied it twisted and ended on it's back - just like a turtle. Our car was, now, upside down in the middle of the straight - the 11th qualifiers car, on the pipe, pile drove our car (not his fault). - Crap flying everywhere - Our car was four feet in the air. I thought, oh well, we had a good year anyway - crappy luck. I figured the car would be distroyed.
T-BODZ (Terry) has this on video - it great to watch.
Now for the tough stuff. The car that hit ours (not his fault) was beat up. Our car was fine. I couldn't believe it. It was hit by a car doing 50 mph. Geez, what luck.
I have posted our set-up and comments for the Nationals @
As a note: We will be making:
A) Hardened Aluminum Pullies for the Evolva -
B) Our rear sway bar assembly (must have for the serious racer) and a
C) Digital depth gauge for measuring "head clearance" and motor stroke. 21 motors only
