Hey all hope everybody had a great weekend holiday shopping and racing...

I hear Horsham was a blast lastnight with Mike Blackstock being in town running mod and the some of the fast locals stepping up to 19T FINALLY...

Congrats To Larry Fairtrace for TQ in 19T and Jason Schreffler for winning the 19T A main and to the rest of Team Express for the great showings.


New Atlas 19T should be ready for shipping next Friday....

Ya Ya, 19T was a blast. The layout that Chad Phillips designed for this week definitely rewarded horsepower. Stock was just too slow to bother.

Larry and I worked really hard on our stuff yesterday. I don't remember the last time I tore the whole front end of a car apart and changed EVERYTHING in under 10 minutes just for practice.

What was also nice was that Larry and I ran different motors. Larry ran an Atlas based motor ( with F Brushes ) and I ran a Cham 2 ( with X1s ). You could definitely tell the Atlas had torque. That was the least of Larry's worries. He probably needed another tooth or 2 for more straight line speed.

Overall, it was a really fun race. The main was really a battle between Larry and me. It took me 4 and a half minutes to get my head together to catch Larry. We both had damaged cars by race end, but it was a blast.

And Cuffs, don't worry, we will DEFINITELY run 19T more now. We had too much fun. And don't say, "I TOLD YOU SO!"

Yeah Schreff, that was some fun stuff. We had a nice battle in the main and in the 3rd round. Track was definatley too open for stock but perfect for 19turn. Its crazy that my car feels better with more power.

Tags sign me up for one of those new Atlas's I'm sold on them after last night. That thing had retarted rip

X1 brushes are awesome. I ran them yesterday in my 12th scale stock. I TQ'ed at "The C" in Frederick. They stay strong from start to finish. During the week I ran 258 laps of practice. After that many laps I pulled my fastest laps on the last pack of the night. Yesterday eXpress Motors and batteries took me to TQ and winning the "A" Main.

I will be placing and order this week Tag. Can't wait to run them in TC.

They only raced 3 this week because a few guys had some problems and Brett had family stuff to do and couldn't stay the whole time. I think the next race on the 7th will have a few more as a few guys didn't make it that orignally planned to be their. They ran great on the asphalt though.

Sup guys, got some electronics and some offroad vehicles for sale if anyone would be interested. Need some $$ for college so I need to get rid of some things but the bare minimum to continue racing.

Thanks, TK

Hi all, I just want to thank eXpress driver Aaron Stratus for some of his awesome motor work! Your motors and batteries rock, best stuff I have EVER ran! Also props to your drivers in the area (Aaron Stratus, Jeff Beaule and Andy Vetor) they've been helping out a lot of the younger guys with setups and motor help, keep up the excellent work guys!

He didnt want to slow down for him I would have loved to seen that. I was impressed that Chad was able to stay close without running every week. Guess skill makes up for rustiness.
