YEah I got a steal on that car and man is it running better than my TC4 thats for sure. It hit the 27 lap barrier twice this weekend and ran times fast enough if I would run clean to be at TQ times from last weekend. I think my time this weeke would of had me 2nd last week in qualifying. I had the car running some 11.09 and 11.1's and 2's pretty easily. I could still hit 11.4's at the end when I drove right. Damn driving thing!!!!!!!!!

The buggy race went ok. I didn't have a clean race but still qualified 5th. I'm leaving to run the main in a few minutes. There are some good 1/8 guys in our region thats for sure.

If you ever ride with Tag to a race, bring a gas can just in case.

Let's just say we had "crusher" on standby for a little rescue effort. The truck fluttered going up the on ramp.

20 gallon fuel cell, the pump said it filled 19.9 gallons .

Enjoyed the racing, the F's are definalty the way to go right now, at least over 767's anyway. I put 5 runs (probably really about 8 considering practice runs are about 8 minutes long), and I could still clean them off and see the serrations.

I guess I will have to get some of those F's from Tag then.

Hey, guys. Congrats on the good runs to all this weekend.

Larry, let us know how you finish up.

Team eXpress had a great time at the Region 2 race @ Jackson R/C yesterday. We had several drivers there to represent.

Stock touring was a ton of fun: in qualifying it was 1. Williams 2. Getchell 3. Herald. My car was working super well with Tag's 'M'-based stock and F-line brushes. I took TQ with a 23, 5:01. Track was super hot, so no track records were going to be broken in those conditions.

In the main, I made a change to 767s which was a big mistake as they took a big nose-dive within two laps which let Getchell cleanly get around me. Having said that, Jr. and I had a super great race for 2nd and 3rd with Junior maybe 2 inches from my bumper for the better part of 10 laps. A little lap traffic and a bobble put a bit of distance between us and that was that.

Gotta give respect to Getchell as one of the finest stock asphalt racers on the East Coast. His record on asphalt speaks for itself. Jr. too showed the kind of wheel he is with the level of respect he showed me.

In 19T, the racing was hard-core with qualifying from 1-5: 1. Gray 2. Cuffs 3. Xavier 4. Spence 5. Williams

The range in time was 24, 5:03 (Gray) to 24, 5:07 (Williams), so it was super tight in qualifying. In the main, the battle was really for 1-3 between Gray, Cuffs and Xavier. Spence and I had a good battle midway through the race for 4th. In the end it was 1. Gray, 2. Xavier, 3. Cuffs, 4. Spence, 5. Williams

As always, Jackson put on a great show and the track was near perfect irrespective of the 100+ temps.

I would pay to see Punk push his car uphill. Not like he has any ass to help him get that done!!!!!!!!!!!! If it was me not a problem as I have plenty of excess to put into pushing a car.

Brian looked really good at the C. My car was slowly coming around but I am still a ways off. I thought I was getting close for the main but with everyone thinking this was the worlds that they were racing in I kind of got knocked into next week. I can say that I will be more prepaired for the 20th.
