I was counting on SOMEONE taking down the flashlight man, but he was unstoppable. Truly awesome run man!

I'll be there about 2:30pm today to find another 1 second per lap. Was Mellen jumping the pipe somewhere!?!? See you there Veno.
He doesn't jump the pipe but he did tell me he loosened a couple screws on Varecks ride. Same with Doug's Pro4. He's more about sabotage than cheating.

On my 4wd they last forever in soft compound. When it's dry they get ate up pretty quick. In watered conditions, I have been using same rears for 6 race nights if not more. When I ran sc I ran aka enduros and goosebumps. F/R. Goosebumps didn't last very long... Maybe 2-3 race nights. There only come in super soft compound. Enduros lasted me a long time.

Wish I could have stuck around for the mains, but I was having a ton of issues+cold weather intolerance.....I guess it was instant karma for bailing on the wife and leaving her by herself for the yard sale haha

But hopefully by next weekend ill turn loose my rc8b....I've found it impossible to keep plugs alive longer than 10 runs on my new werks b5 :-( anyone else have the same issue?

dang...

joe, if you use werks #5 plugs, good fuel and don't have a problem in your tank (i.e. air leak causing a lean run condition) and follow ron's break in and tuning guide at the beginning of the werks b5 thread here on rctech, you should have no problems.

should get about a gallon out of a plug

I'm using torco 30% and O'Donnell 97's

Nasty: its tuned on his 1 stage idle tuning, and i used his break in method also. it runs good just other than that which is why I'm confused about the plugs because I never had an issue with 97's in my rb killer 9... and where can I find those werks plugs? Through amain?

Ditch the OD plugs and always make sure your glow igniter has a good charge. A weak igniter will not burn the oils off the plug coil and will lead to tuning issues. It's also not a bad idea to run a hotter plug when it's cold out. Werks #5 is perfect for winter season. Switch to #6 when it gets hot again. Wherever you shop now should be able to get you Werks plugs as they are distributed by all the major vendors. If you can't find any shoot me a PM. I keep them in stock at all times since that's all I use. They work great in all engines and I prefer them even over OS plugs.
