No biggie on the packs. I'm in no real rush for them. I can wait til after Cleveland. I'm sure JP doesn't want me to get some new 4cell packs..

Not so much the proximity issue....more like the blowing off another Friday of work to get down there. You guys will have plenty of chances at the Champs to give me my proper beat down.
I think Tag was doing a little "tweaking" in that picture.....

Any updates from the Oval Masters yet?

What's a good starting rollout for a komodo in a 1/12 car? I ran a 53mm rollout with a CO27 on the layout we're running now if that's any help.

Yes Tag it was so good I decided to call you on Robs cell... I was so excited!!! I will be calling you tomorrow about a couple things...one being I may oh gotten a hobby store between Windsor and Toronto who wants to carry eXpress and the other thing is about some packs pour moi.

CHECK OUT THE GREAT PICS OF US CANUCKS AT THE RACE AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS POST!!! Rob and I we're modeling some eXpress product: lol:

Well heres the whole race report... SORRY FOR SOME SPELLING AND GRAMMAR I'M TIRED AND IT'S LATE

Jeff and I arrived early to secure a pit table for the eXpress crew. We all got setup and laid some practice times down and adjusted our cars to the low traction since it was brand spankin’ new carpet we ran on.

Stock Touiring
My car was pretty hooked up from the start and after first round of qualifying I was sitting TQ, Jeff was 2nd, Rob was 4th and Mike was 5th. All of this got erased due to computer issues and my TQ got taken away! Long story lol I wasn’t too happy but the only thing you can do is lay down a good run in the next qualifier. Which I did, I ended up qualifying 4th overall in stock tower. My TQ time that got taken away due to computer issues was a couple seconds quicker and I would of been 3rd on the grid. Congrats to Jeff Beaule took TQ!!! Rob Say qualified 5th and Mike 6th. The 4 eXpress drivers who were running stock were qualified within the top 6!!! That was just soo awesome!!! In the Main I went from 4th to last in the first turn since I got punted but I ran a flawless main to bring myself back up to 5th place. Unfortunately Jeff had a couple bobbles and slipped back to 2nd where he finished. Rob was the big mover! From starting 5th he pulled himself up to 3rd. So we had 2-3rd on the podium . Mike Moore finished closely behind me in 6th place. So in stock touring we did very well!!! We has all 4 of the drivers in the top 6 of the A for qualifying and for the mains Thanks to Jeff for supplying the mad rip to me for the stock A main with a fresh 4200 pack!!! Much appreciated!!!


19 turn touring
It was an all LOU VANDERWAY SHOW HERE FOLKS!!! Lou took TQ and WIN!!! Mike Moore a 19 turn touring specialist qualified 6th and worked his way up to 3rd where he finished!!! eXpress 1 and 3 on the podium Unfortunately I had some troubles in qualifying with the durability of my (excuse me) Rob's JRXS and I qualified in the B and finished 2nd due to my esc shutting off on me due to a hit from a lapped car. I was told after the race I had 3 laps on the field!!! Oh well...next time right? I definitely was capable of running in the top 5 in the A but things happen.

12th scale 19 turn
CAN YOU SAY LOU VANDERWAY!?! Lou qualifies 2nd behind the great Wayne Vince and in the main Wayne had a couple problems and Lou wheeled it out for the win! Great Job Lou!!! He takes home two victories tonight!!!

Micro on and offroad
Now for the girlie classes LOL just kidding guys... Rob Say qualifies 7th in onroad and pulls it up to a 2nd place finish. In ofroad Jeff starts 2nd and finishes 2nd

All in all it was a huge success!!! We all did well and most importantly had a great time!!! Enjoy all the pics...Rob and I were fooling around with the camera later on in the night with the pics of him flipping me.

We definately had an awesome day for eXpress! The stock touring main was pretty wild. I started 5th and Mike was 6th, after the first corner Mike was leading and I was second. After it was all said and done we managed to put 2 of us on the podium and 4 out of the top 6 (Jeff 2nd, myself 3rd, Aaron 5th and Mike 6th)! In 19T 12th scale and Touring, Lou just was in a league of his own, great runs Lou! Mike also had a good run 19 touring, I think he started near the back and batteled his way up to 3rd. I did run micro however it was just a filler class, I thought I had finished 8th or something in the main but when I got off the drivers stand they said I was second? Not sure how that happened but I'll take it!

I do have to say the new shirts made us stand out from everybody today, and I have to say we looked damn sexy in them..lol.

Also gotta give props to the whole team, all day they were helping other racers with various issues, I definately couldn't ask for a better group of guys to work with!
