Gear covers protect against fingers and rocks. Dust still gets in and gets in the spur. Same thing happens with my 10th scale stuff with gear covers. The dust is going to get you not the rocks.

Default Whats the deal with Gazafy

He guys, long time no see. I wanted to know what is the deal with Chris Gazafy. Has he gotten that much faster? I noticed he beat Hartson in PRO MOD.

He has gotten a lot faster. However, Ronnie totally blew out and broke. And Hartson just didn't have a good race. He kinda blew out as well.

Chris has gotten faster, but I wouldn't say he is pro level yet. He definately ran smooth, but had an open track with only 4 others racing and was allowed to win by other's mistakes.

Had he ran in sportsman, it would've been mor interesting

He has gotten faster, but Hartson had a very bad night. He flipped over maybe 4 times.

Is Pegasus still a dirt oval?

I think that about covers the current tracks in our area. There are rumors of a new track in the ontario area. Not sure of it's exact location but from what I am hearing it might be open some time next year.

There is also Hot Box in Santa Ana but that is not close to Riverside.

New layout is brutal! Tough to clear that triple consistently with the B4. Turn after the long straight is rough, too. Gotta take the outside line.
