You mean you're gonna run Mini? Like borrow Dennis' car or you bought one just for this race? I thought you Saskatoon boys were anti-Mini?

But still glad you're gonna race Mini!

Ivan

ps. For guys looking for more track time, you can run your mini (with a 21.5 motor though) AND your CTA (without changing a thing) in the 21.5 demo class. How cool is that!

Just curious, could a 4WD mini chassis (not M) be run in Scale Spec? And if so what tires and weight? TC ?
Thanks

Seems wrong to run a rwd body on a fwd chassis, but the body came with the car.

Looks like chuck debelen is willing to be my mule if anyone needs parts from www.gripworksrc.com for the race.
The catch is you have to let me know by Friday night as Saturday will be the last time I see him before the Calgary race
