Thanks for the info guys and thanks to the people that sent me messages with info as well. So far three of us have fairly stock M05's and just waiting for the fourth to get his car now. Just wondering what upgrades we should be looking into on these things? And what tires are we able to run on these?

Jim is the man to ask and probably most knowledgeable with the T4.

Modified video is uploading as we speak, will be ready to watch while eating your breakfast!

Friday night racing was a lot of fun! We had five mains with mini, tc stock, and tc mod. For the mains, we used a 10' cliktrak to space the cars out for the starts. Doing this proved very effective as we did not have a first corner pile up for any of the mains. I don't see why we wouldn't continue this spacing as it was fair for everyone and the racing was better!

First off was the mini main with eight cars. It was a clean start into the first few corners, and Matt got away to get to the line first. The real race was for second between three cars! Ivan takes second only .054 seconds ahead of third place Jay! Carter was very close behind as well for forth. Raz joining mini tonight drove well to get fifth. Colin had a good run and placed sixth. Keith putting some good laps in finished seventh. Dale was only two seconds back from Keith for eighth! Great racing!

The TC stock C main was up next. It was a four car race and Pat drove his own race and gained the lead to win. Ian having a smooth and consistent run placed second. Dave, getting the hang of his car, drove well to finish third. Gordon had a pushy car placed forth.

The TC stock B main had six cars with some close racing. Jay had a clean run and go to the top step! John had to battle his way to a nice second place finish! Tim was two seconds back to finish third. Mike Evans coming to join us this week placed well in forth! Paul got caught up with other cars early but held on for fifth. Jacky, having traction roll issues, drove around it the best he could to finish sixth.

The TC stock A main had eight cars and some great racing! Pete had the fastest car and would take the number one spot! Tommy had a great run and placed second overall! Erwin had a consistent run and rounded out the podium! Jim had a power switch placement issue but he got going again to finish forth. Walter had a quick car and drove nice to finish fifth, only one and a half seconds behind Jim! Mike San Antonio drove his own race well to finish sixth! Chris and Blaine had issues and finished seventh and eighth respectively.

The TC mod A main was exciting with an over full race of nine cars. With luck on his side, Matt drove through the traffic and some crashes to end up finishing first. Pete recovered strong from a body tuck and came within one and a half seconds of the leader to finish second! Aaron had a clean run to finish third. Al had a great run and finished forth! Carter and Ivan were rubbing fenders the entire race! Carter took charge and beat Ivan to the line by .143 seconds! They finished fifth and sixth respectively. Jim had the worst luck of the race but finished it in seventh. John had his mod car working better and finished eighth. Gordon, providing video, had a break down but is awarded ninth.

A great week of racing! A new track layout will be ready to get broken in on Tuesday. Thanks Jim!

Another super fun night of racing!

Great videos Gordon! Too bad no mini. It's really a great class for total noobs and intermediate level racers like myself. Close racing, your regular carnage and you never know what to expect when you hit traffic! Super fun battle all race Jay!

Looking forward to a new track too!

Ivan
