Throttle controll and steering input are two of the bigger ones at stake. But once you learn to drive one there are a blast!! Go with the sportsman for a couple of weeks until you feel confident you can drive smooth and be able to cleanly get out of the way of a faster car/driver and above all learn how not to be a hack! Otherwise you'll end up with broken stuff. There are a couple of people.....2 come to mind, that would rather hack you out of the way and break your stuff than give you the time and track needed to get out of the way! Also the "PRO" who set your TC-5 up, set it up for HIS driving style. Set-ups and driving style's will differ from driver to driver. For example..... I tried Doug's tc last year which was fast-as-ass and on rails........for him. I could not drive it anywhere close to what he did.

On the other hand I would like to issue a public appology for stepping on Nathan's car last Saturday!!!! I hope you were able to get everything back to race........if you have not you are more than welcome to run mine!

On the foot.....TRS Racers, please be aware that you must Marshall after your race. If you can't ask someone to go in your place! There should be NO coaxing or asking over and over again! Bottom line you race, you marshall then work on your car! Marshalling for the most part has been good by all and those who choose to go back to your table and sit or wait to be asked know who you are!

Hey Brad....maybe U should take a lesson from me....I cant remember the last time i stepped on someones car!!!!

good racing everyone... as always awesome runs in all classs...

on teh bad side of things.... races are taking about 1-2 hours longer than they should.... as brad mentioned before... AFTER YOUR RACE YOU MARSHALL..... we also hav a list of the order of races posted..... if your race is next you should be on track when the race infront of you finished unless you are marshalling then you should be there in 1 minute after the race ends... we need to tighten it up some.. also when your race is finihsed park your car and take it to your pit not run an extra 10 laps.... w waste 3-5 minutes per race waiting on all of these things... racing has be great so far and lets make it alilttle better and make this a good year... if ayone ha a problem with this s me at the track and we will go outsid and discuss it...LOL just kidding ... have fun and enjoy...

Some nights are better than others, and last night was one of the best in a while. Every main was worth watching with fast laps and tight racing.

I think the key to Doug winning the Touring Car main was lightening his load just before the 2nd qualifer. It didnt help him right away, but, by the main, his car was dialed!

i honestly think that with a one-way in the car with the right set-up is the ticket for pretty much all rubber tire carpet racing.with my car it dousnt matter what i do to it.

im out for awhile untill i can get a real car......LOSI TYPE-R..

so whenver that happens ill be back then.
have fun with it guys
