Ya, I have both and was hoping there may be enough interest in 4wd there to run 2 & 4 buggy at club. THANKS.

Default AZ State Championship race pics posted anywhere

Hello,
Does anyone know where the pictures from the AZ State Championship race are posted online? I know Jconcepts was sponsoring and taking pictures afterwards of all of us champions
I gave my camera to someone to take pictures and I think it must have been the first time he ever took a photo, our heads are all cut off
I wish I could do that after a hard night on the town

So exactly how does a person email a cooler anyway? Email me one that has been in the same spot as the Clydesdales or would it get here faster if you text it?

G'day all,

Awesome to see the cactus website up and running, it's all starting to get very exciting (and nerve racking) , I just had a couple of questions, that I'm sure seasoned racers like guys would know.

1, what does top 8 to Amain and then bump up mean? We don't do bump ups down here.

2, what time does racing usually finish on a Wednesday night?

3, tyres ? Am I right in thinking barcodes, blue in the morning and orange when it heats up? All round on buggies. And on stadium truck, same on rear and red taper pins on front in morning and maybe silver in the afternoon?
And foams? 2 stage or closed cell?
What is wear like? If I only bring 3 sets per car can I get some more locally?

4, setups? I know this might be a touchy subject , but can anyone help me out with a starting setup for a b4.1, t4.1, b44.1?

Sorry for all the questions, I am just starting to get organized, and I still have to build 3 cars!

Cheers

John

1. The top 8 times or qual points qualify for the main. 1st and 2nd from the bmain bump up

2. Club racing Wednesday ends a little before midnight.

3. Not sure on tire choice but you should be able to buy more locally.

Great night of racing @ SRS last night. Good turnout and everyone seemed to have a good time. Big thanks to Lance and Jeff for helping me fix my slipper clutch issues.

I'll be updating this post with more coverage once youtube finishes the upload, but here's whats up so far.

Pro Lite A-main
+ YouTube Video

Buggies

Pics incoming, I will get them up when I get home from the office.

Awesome Footage guys, Looks like a real blast on that layout!!

Is that right a 10 minute SCT Amain? That would be tough!!

Is that likely to be the layout for the Cactus?

Do you have any footage of the pit area setup and surrounds?

Nice run Lance!
