The race was great. From watching the invites to the track to the program.
It took almost all of the practice runs to get my car where I was comfortable with it. Once I hit the setup it was one of the best cars I have ever driven. Easy to drive enough steering and unlimited rear traction. It was my first big asphalt race and I had to figure out the whole tire management thing. I thought after tqing the first 2 rounds I probably had it locked in. But Kyle was able to no only take the last 2 rounds but also get the extra lap to take tq from me. Nice runs. It's "Tire Tweak"
In the mains I had 2 sets of tires for the mains and started 2nd on the grid. I was able to get by Kyle in the first main only to hit a board that let him and EJ by. A little bad luck for Kyle and good luck for me and I was back in first and puled away.
In the 2nd main I had a iffy start and it got worse from there and I was in 10th before I knew it. I thought about pulling off to save my tires but as I was thinking this I noticed the rest of the field wasnt far ahead of me and really dicing it out. This main was ugly and I was able to work my way back up to 5th.
In the 3rd main Kyle and I got a good start and were off to the races, I got by him about 2 minutes in and won by 5 seconds.
It was a great weekend, the Losi speedo and motors were awesome, and my sticks, holy crap. Best sticks I have ever had.
Ron Schuur from Losi was there to help with my motors and speedos. It was a big help since Im still learning the brushless stuff.
Denny was a big help in getting me to this race and hanging with him is a blast. Thanks buddy. And as always my parents,thanks again.
Cuffs thanks for the inspirational words It helped.
And Matt Francis for the pep talk.
Now It looks like if I want to go back (Which I really do) I have to run mod. So maybe a Try at an invite next year.
