Icenutz, I just realized that after nearly 4 years of frequenting the Altoona Raceway, you and I are about to race head to head with like kind vehicles for the first time. Its times like these I wished RC car bodies were painted on the outside. Because if they were, by the end of tonight you would have black & blue streaks all over that Barnum & Baily's clown car of yours!
This should be printed and framed , Ed talking smack ........... WOW !!

Why do I even try to talk smack? Everytime I do it, I get beaten like a mule. I was no where near the pace of Icenutz and the rest of the AMain guys in Stock Oval.

Congrads to Markle an Morris and to everyone who made it for opening night.

The touring car main was insane with action everywhere. Its races like that which remind me why RC is so much fun in the first place.

And a big thanks to Greg, Brad, Chris, and everyone else who worked on the my Oval car body. I love the graphics. They are so creative. I'll post a pic as soon as I can. I'm never going to forget that that I'm not just the owner, but also a client while I'm working the fields.

LMAO!

Carpet + Stock Motors + Rubber tires = great racing.

And for those who think you have to have lipos and brushless, think again; Morris won Touring Car with a brushed stocker and NiMhs.

Matt, I was checking the reuslts, if you throw out the first laps which shouldnt have counted, it was actually McGhee who had fast lap - a 12.46. I had a 12.66 and you had a 12.69. Which is rediculously close. The final results really came down to driving and not making mistakes.

As the season progresses, I can see that this is only going to get tighter and more and more difficult just to make it to the A Main.

For the rest of u left handers I was on the phone last night w/Eric from Darkside and he gave me all kids of set-up tips and the advantage of running 64p over 48p, how to keep the car from hooking in the corners and why changing the spur gear does not have the same effect on the car as changing the pinion. I am going to try out some of the things and i'll let you know if it works. Unless your name is Blontz

Results from opening night : 1st place Blontz

Wow! Guess you really showed me!
That's what I thought! BEEYATCH maybe you should try some more "SET-UP" tips, and apply them to your mouth!

Would someone please punch me in the head the next time you see me making changes after making the a-main!
