Brad, Ed does not have "moderator" written anywhere below his name on this forum. Just like Billy says, "Don't go changing to try and please me i love you just the way you are!"

Goinbrokeracin, you had some great RC gadgets none of which helped Brad get any faster (go figure)! Look forward to racing with you again!

Chuck, holy shat, there are pics on there from like 20 years ago, very cool to see those again! All the website media rules, even the stuff with Brad in it!

See everyone in a couple weeks! I will make sure to pretend to take my RC car with me to Cananda and claim to finish in the top 5 out of 100 entries at a fictitious Canadian National race. Brad also went and finished 101st.

The racing has been great (for most of us.......Brad)!

Bob, It was obvious that you had a lot of speed and were getting better with each run. I think you did very well given it was your first trip up to a new track/surface/pit area. I hope you can make it back soon.

Matt, so far, the rubber tires and brushed/brushless stock has exceeded expectations. The tracks good, the tires are lasting, and that have been few (if any) broken parts. It makes me think everyone should have a touring car!

Good luck up there in Canada Icenutz. They've had it too good for too long. I'm sure you could do something about that!

Great job Chuck & Doug and everyone else who has helped get the new indoor track going.

I missed the race, but, I did see the results on Speed. I have to admit, I'm pleasantly surprized. I was certain the fix was in and nothing was going to stop Hamilton.

But, its not over yet. If McLaren can get the results for the 2 cars that finnished in front Hamilton thrown out (feul temperature infractions) Hamilton could still be the champion.

We might not know for few more weeks/months who the champion is. What a mess. Typical F1.

Matt, Your car certainly doesnt look any slower than the rest of ours. In fact, it looks quite a bit faster! So, I wouldnt expect a rules change anytime soon in Touring Car.

From what I've read, the differences between the 13.5 and 27T are more noticeable in pan cars than in Touring Cars. Novak is about to release a 21.5 especially for oval cars in addition to the 17.5 thats already out.

I really want to switch to brushless for my Pan car, but only if we can run them together with the brushed. We dont have enough guys - yet - to start splitting up the class.

Anyone see Cousin Carl almost drill his team mate Kenseth in the face after Martinsville?

Jack Douche needs to park Cousin for a couple races

I wonder what that was all about? It just looks. . . . . bad.

It doesnt matter so long as Gordo's 'Drive for Five' stays 'Alive'!

ed,
the only reason i was saying that was because people say that the 13.5 is faster...exspecially if its sintered motor.
i was blaming that on my loss to mcghee...lol

Hey guys whats up? Looking like you all are having a blast on Fridays! A couple more weeks till I get free on Fridays with High School football. Hope play-offs are still going to be on Saturdays as Im getting itchy to run oval! Cant wait to observe the Madman and Gixxer show. lol! Looking to get some practice in the next mid weeks. Got a question: When Steve helped me set up the car I ran a few times and the motor was way hot using 48p 81t spur and 18t pinion. I think ya are to go up in spur or down in pinion correct? to cool it down? I want to order 17,18,19,20, pinion and 81,84,87, spur correct for a good start out base.? I know only a few are on 48p so anyone with some help thank you! You all have fun and Ill see ya in a couple weeks. Cant wait! ..................... Thank you Brian Daugherty

p.s. please dont change stock oval to brushless for now, Im struggling to get out there with what I have!lol!!!!!!!!!!!!
