Thanx Dawn, Sean, Jeff and the whole SRS crew for a great weekend!!! Joey did an awesome job on the track layout Fun, fast and still very challenging!!! The weather held up, and the racing was as intense as usual! Cant wait until next year already!!!

On a side note......allowing brushless was definately the way to go. Especially for the SRS class 15 minute runs. A couple of brushed motors made those mains, and even took first and third in the 4wd class .....but barely. The winner barely made it to the finish line, and second was dumping on the final lap. (Congrats to those drivers for their excellent driving abilities in getting those brushed motors to the top two spots!!) Just shows that the efficiency of brushless is the future of racing!

Thanks Sean , Dawn and the whole SRS crew for a great race , I had a wonderful time.

Thanks for letting Brushless/Lipo in the Stock, 19T, and old dude, that made things so much more fun, fare and easy for the average racer.

Brett awesome pictures.

Mike, i think your signature is no longer valid. Didn't we see some of the old bling at Cactus?

Sorry Butts, you're wrong again! It wasn't the motors,
it was as you said yourself, they "dumped"------batteries!! If Casper, Ryan, and Cody would have used LIPOS, they could have run all day, but they elected to stay true to their battery sponsor.

And on a side note: You need to watch a few more NASCAR races. Barely is still a win.

See you next year in the "Old Dudes" class!

Sorry Scott.......try again.........I did support my sponsor, I ran Slingshot........LIPOS. You need to have your spies get the right info

Oh, and I was also there supporting your drivers (my SLINGSHOT Team mates) all weekend.

Just so you know, we tested brushless 10.5 motors with Slingshot 4500's before this race and went 17-18 minutes easy Sorry, nothing wrong with the batteries.

Besides, you obviously didnt read my post very well....like the part where I said that the DRIVERS did an EXCELLENT job of DRIVING! And I never said "barely winning" wasnt considered a win.

And I wont see you in "old dude class" next year. Still not old enough

See you at Pegasus though...
