It's all built.....having some issue with the programming on my radio. I am going to put the radio on the scope today at work to see what my issue is. When i set up my radio in a standard set up, the ESC arms with no issues. When i have the mix set up for my ESC and the brake servo, the ESC does not arm. I'll let you know what i find.

Should have it done by this weekend for sure!

I have heard that you can use windex on the body so that you can position the sticker a little better. It will actually slide. I usually cut the sticker out so that the backing is still on, so that i can hold it up to the body and check for fitment with out it sticking everywhere.

Have they changed the track layout at all in the last few weeks? Last time I was there it was the same it has been for awhile (about 3 weeks ago). I miss the bigggg triple!

Hey Sean,
Spray the body where the decals are going to be with a soapy (dish soap) water mix. Lay the sticker down and get it where you want it, after placement is good start to squigee out the soapy water and bubbles with a credit card or something similar. Doing it this way lets you get the bubbles out and also lets you peel it back up to get imperfections out. Hope this helps you buddy?

Hey Monty,

The track layout is pretty much the same except for a couple added doubles where the center straight away was. The track is super fun! Dave and Dan have been doing a good job making subtle changes here and there...

I had another great day racin at ARC this last Saturday. I really wanted to thank Chris V and Jimmy W. for their crazy fast pit work. (2-3 second fuel stops) I also wanted to thank Carson and Russ for all their hard work in helping to get the track dialed for race day.

i vote that on nights with less racers everyone should get longer qualifiers and mains..not just the pros. i'd love the challenge of a 20-30 min main.

Haha, I agree. I *might* be able to make a 20 minute main, but anything more and the LVC would be my finish.

Great Racing Saturday! Gibby how is your leg? Great job to Pres Ilog for his expert win using Prime fuel for the first time! The Pro class is always a nail biter with these factory hotrods running ten plus minutes per tank! The fuel mileage battle is on! Will we see an 11 minute run soon? I am thinking 12s are on the horizon! Great job to Brandon Coe for his pro class win. His car week after week gets crazy runtime! We should have a mileage battle! just run til your car runs out. this would be a seperate event and would be pretty cool to see how far these drivers can go! Hope to see more drivers out this week! We need those pros to come back and show us the fast way!Jimmy, Anthony, Carson, Gil, Kevin Im callin all you guys out! Come on out and put your stake on victory! See you all this weekend! Carson, call me!
