Team eXpress what is that?

Guess what guys, ProTeam has come back too life! Just on a different name this time! Darn passwords!


Who is racing where this weekend? And does anyone know when West Chester is starting for outdoors? With all of this nice weather starting to form, well looks like its time to crank out some mods and break in some pipes down there! And break them in well I'll do!

Speedy weedy little car!

Fontaine- Where you heading this weekend friend? Anywhere, or are you taking the weekend off?

I need more posts on this site! Can someone send me some to borrow and not return or do I have to beat someone of the head for some? O well, can't wait for the smell of some paragon this weekend. Too bad mines odorless.

Anyone know how long it takes for tire compound in a bottle (ex. trinity red dot) to become useless? I have a bottle sitting around down in the basement and wonder if its still good or ready for a two point conversion into the trash.

Lil B-

Spell it Dan Drop NNNY! New Cobalt eh? I prefer green things over them! Naw I plan on running a little 19 Turn out there! I'll be eaten alive by your mods but we'll see about that! With the point series thing, about either 2 or 3 left like you said. I'm thinking about 3 left with the mini championship thing as well. Either way I'm thinking mid April we'll be hitting some pavement for some road action along with those dreaded T-maxxes as well. Yup

Fontaine- If you attend WC, bring your 1/12 scale. I'll warn you about sedan, it costs $40 bucks to enter and you receive a handout motor there. They have a new layout down thats different from last year now. Good luck trying to go! I'll be there at 1 o'clock Sunday. 1/12 scale entrence fee, $12 and for sedan $40 and if you have a handout motor, $15. Cya there perhaps.

Lil B, Lil B where are all my peeps at? Good run at Horsum last week. Sorry to see you go out like that. (I know I know a little too late to say that. )

Bob,
Danny doesn't know how to gear a 19 turn motor. Anyway, you'll need much more than a 19 turn, to make any noise at West Chester's outdoor track. We'll have the "heat" on the "street"! Nuthin' but hot mods, hommie! Seriously, though, I wouldn't run anything milder than a 12 turn. You'll get eaten alive out there.

I ran there a few times last year with Fred and we had the Mi2's flying!!!!! I think he won once and I finished 3rd....I know that the ORL race there I finished last in the b. broke 5 arms there that day, never broke another arm anywhere on that car. but 5 in one day there. for motor I was running a 12-1 V2 and it was diallllled. I tried an 8 and a 10 but the 12 worked the best.

Q first time I was there I ran a 19 turn cause thats what a few locals said everyone ran and I was able to hang. When I through in the big motor i just over worked the tires. wasnt any faster from an 8 to the 12. maybe on the straight but thats it.

Bob, yeah I think 19 should be fine. I never had a decent motor to run there at all. You can run rubbers there if you want. The first month or so the track is dusty at least for the first two weeks. But foams come around good during the summer! Especially Double purples and purples or plaids, purples. Yeah forgot to mention, 19 turns will be with eXpress for power! Guess you say that coming!

Lil B- yeah yeah, I learned my lesson quickly! And so did he. Next time that happens, bye bye truck. Punt, going, going, going, gonnnnneee!

Yeah... that's the risk of running the "heat". You'll break really quick on one of those couplers. All you need to do is slightly brush against them and your wheel disappears into your body!
