Chris, I actually just got back from the track and it is holding the moisture pretty good right now. With the temps being up for the whole weekend I would expect the traction to be real good. Probably not sticky enough for slicks though.

Good deal. Robins, Shieldsmith and I will be there.

We should be in Columbus around 7-8pm mark tomorrow night.

I might get flamed for saying this but I actually like a track that dries out and makes you choose different sets of tires. Don't get me wrong I like running pink slicks as much as the next guy but this is also off-road and changing conditions is a part of it.

On another note is there an on site hobby shop?

I am coming out of semi-retirement. Mike, we just got done talking about how sweet it is to run slicks all the time...liar. Either way its cool- I just need to make sure I have some access to tires if the track does dry out.

The Fastraxx parts support doesn't come to electric days.

I thought the Mod 2 wheel was even better.

It was good to meet and race with all of you. I will be back a couple more times this year.

I will for sure be over for the Midwest Champs race.

Thanks to everyone who came out and made the racing so great. With the building full it was slightly reminiscent of glory days at CRCRC. Hope everyone had a good time.

Dax looks like you have the Losi dialed in. Nice results! 140 sounds like some good racing.
