According to the website, the new day and time will be Saturday at 3pm so I hope you can make it out a few more times than last year D4Man.
Yeah, the last time I was out the traction got better and better as the day went on. You had to drive in the moist dirt. I personally think that different tires will be the ticket this year. I'm not telling what I have in store, I guess you'll find out when I show up. I have several ideas and I plan on being able to keep up with the track as it changes. Tires are 95% of the setup.

How about you get a JRXS and make it out here a few Fridays this winter, and then we'll talk about 1/8 scale!

I liked mine at Altoona but not at Mimi's as it had too much freaking steering and was inconsistant.

Yeah I used a Mazda6 that I had for my MI2 EC. I just redrilled it but it wasn't lined up as good as I wanted so next time it will be new body mounted up better. Not like it was a huge problem but the Mazda was alot smoother to drive at Mimis

Mimis has been spraying the track to get it up to more National level traction and I would say they have done that. It really does have freaking vicious traction.

As of right now, I know that Brad, Jim & I are in for Mod Truck. There may be some others that I'm not aware of, but thats about it.

Its an early Christmas for me - 13.5 Touring tonight and Mod Truck tomorrow. It doesnt get any better than that.

Hey, Between all of you guys at McCulloughs with practically a fleet of cars at your disposal yet not one one of you has a touring car?

What about O.S.R.??? Is he coming tomorrow?

I've tossed the idea of getting a touring car and running it over at RC Alley (former R/C Avenue) from time to time. That's only a couple miles from my house. I wish Altoona was a little closer
