Not if you're gonna be there! I don't want to get beaten too badly

As far as I know, I'll be there. Are you guys getting a hotel for Hemet?

I am going to try and make it to So Cal as the Hemet race is pretty important for me for points but not sure if I will get to swing the trip to the track just yet.

What classes you running this time for the JBRL, Chris?

I will be trying my hand at mod buggy. Re-did all my shocks (t&b). I should be going on Friday. I'll be going down to Hemet on Saturday, and staying in a hotel as usual.

I would run mod buggy at the JBRL race, but I'd A) get beatin too badly B) not have the right tires.

I know Numan is fast, but jeez...a second a lap is huge! I don't think Pudge is a second a lap faster than Hartson. I wish Numan would race off-road a little more. He has always been a really cool dude to be around.

I"m not going to make it down to SoCal on Friday. We are leaving Vegas early Saturday morning and are going straight to Hemet to practice. I hope to see everyone there!

Cheers...to safe drives to Hemet,

Chris

I wouldn't have been able to make it to SoCal on friday it turns out, so all for the best.


As for Numan, Pudge would have been that fast too. The lay out is very technical is spot and is what I would call a "Real Drivers' Track." Unfortunately for me, it shows that I have a lot of work to do still....

First of all i think frank should tell everybody why he didnt run the main.

Not taking anything away from Numan(he was really fast) but pudge is the Wc and you just dont show up and beat him.

The track is really technical and my car wasnt good at all...i was running my setup for the nationals and it wasnt very good. I made changes all night and it got better and better. So cal isnt a track were you just show up and throw down and be fast right off the bat...it takes time. Numan is really good at offroad he has just been running onroad for 8 months straight so he really couldnt show what he can really do.

Default Losi BK2 Gearing for stock??

Hey guys, I sold my AE T4 to a friend of mine and now have a Losi BK2 that I wanna run in Intermediate Buggy. You guys have a start on gearing for most layouts on this track? I have a Monster Stock with decent matched 3300's and the stock 78 tooth spur gear. Also, does anyone run 19T off road or does it just go from stock to mod? Thanks for the help!!

19/78

there is usually only a 19t class before a big race like supercross.
