We run 6 min quals and mains for Expert stock at Camarillo without any issues and we have been doing so for quite some time now. I agree with Dotman, 6 min should be the max for a TC. Just a thought...

6 minutes seems more reasonable. We might even get to see one of 'mb racer's' famous R/C Car fires

I was going to race mod too but couldn't get used to not being able to stop in practice. It's a huge change for me. I normally run with tons of brake. Now no brakes! Sorry to anyone I hit from behind. I always hated the old excuse of "no brakes, I'm running a 1 way." But that was before I had run one. Now I know what they mean.

Default Questions & Suggestions

Fred, what do you use to cut the mix, Methonol? I like the way the meth dries up rapidly, have you heard of anyone trying it with your mix? I am having a terrible time keeping the sprayer hose clear, maybe your mix is the ticket?

Question: Are you guys up for 6 min on expert stock?

Suggestion: It has been suggested that we run controlled practice from here forward due to the gas extention. So I plan on

All Offroad/Nitro together (off-road will now run entire course)
All Electric together
20 minute sessions

BTW Orlando, I hear you got a B4. When are you going to get down here to Family Hobbies in Santee? We're out there every Friday night until 9. They haven't started racing yet but practice has been fun.
