Does anyone know where I can get 'wire hold down or routing clips' for 1/10 cars?

Thanks, C.R.

CR - If you mean those tiny white clips with self adhesive tape on the back, I got some at Radio Shack.

Travis - The super clean racing we enjoyed for most of this season took a hiatus last Friday. I even uncharactaristically said something to Jeff while I was on the drivers stand, to which, I regret. (should have waited until after the race).

But it wasnt all bad. I want to thank Chuck for holding up after some contact with me in the horseshoe. When another driver displays that kind of sportsmanship it makes racing a lot more fun and is a great reminder for the rest of us to do the the same if it was the other way around.

Im another vote to change the Oval - But only if we can keep the track change to a minimum. I'll be at the track Wednesday to study our options.

Marsh - Good luck with the T4. When it comes to anything 1/10 scale, AE is almost impossible to beat. And even Morris himself mentioned to me that he might be interested in a TC5.

Brad, you sexy stud, just got off the phone with Norm, pink tapers are out of stock. I checked Losi Parts Warehouse and they are out of stock also. Checked A-Main and they are out of stock also. This happens every year

Thanks Ed. I got lucky. Chambers' B44 (he ran with mod trucks but his third place finish didn't count) was on rails, Wolfson's motor wire came unsoldered. Sean laid down 4 or 5 sub 17 second laps in qualifiying!!!!

I THINK THE OVAL TRACK IS DUE FOR A WIDER TRACK CHANGE!

You guys have it all wrong. The oval track should be set up first and then the road coarse should be set up around that for your minimal track change! You know you road coarse guys are all just oval wannabes who also sit around jamming on toy instruments being rock band wannabes. That is right McGee it has been a long time since we went a few rounds on this forum! Maybe you can get a blow up groupie if you already do not have one!. Keep dreaming!

Yeah Travis, I should have mentioned that! I completley agree with you on "timely manner" track change thing!!!! If it will not work this time maybe we could consider it if or when we change the road course again!

As far as more turns being harder that's not the case! It is tons easier to build motors and get a good set-up for a "flowing" track as opposed to what we run now! Last year with the bigger track there were alot more than 3 guys who had a chance to be competitive and run with Dan and Gerald!
