Have you heard something there about the "MX Compound" of proline and which profile is used ?

I'm pretty sure nearly all of the fast guys are running Lipos. I know they were at CRCRC back in January, and I can't imagine why they'd go back.

I've asked Chazz to find out what he can about the tire situation there and hopefully get me some decent pictures of the various rubber being run.

I've heard they're running the blue, white, and orange(?!) compounds. I know what blue and white are; I saw them while I was at the Clash back in December, but if the "Orange" comment is correct I have no idea what that is. Again, I've asked Chazz to do some investigation on the matter .

So what is the motor wind of choice in mod classes? Does not look like it needs a fire breathing setup...

Is there anywhere we can see results beyond the top 10 and classes other than mod?

Orange is a new JC compound, similar to Losi Red.

personally this Cactus is the best I have attended so far, everything is organized, clean and super dialed!

No, unfortunately it was 2 trips pulling a 30'trailer 1900 miles(x2) @ 8mpg, hotels, and not to mention they can't even race because the SRS management won't let them on the property. Not exactly the best way to handle it if you ask me.

Cactus is one of the biggest races for electric offroad
Not all of us can be there, I was there last year and wanted to be there again this year but could not
It is very unfortunate for all of us not to be able to see the races in Liverc.
So I guess cactus will not be the biggest race next year because if I were sponsors and advertisers I wouldn't be there because there is no visibility and advertising. People cant see Tebo's Kyosho be on top, we cant see Yokomo with new drivers since Masami has retired. The worst thing that sucks, we dont see the good world class racing that this race has
Thanks Cactus organizers. I am thanking them for this bec they are the only ones that could have solved this, bec they own the place, but they did not

I support Liverc bec this is the only place we can see other races in the net. You dont have any other website like this and I'll be waiting and watching for Silverstate then, Cactus is done for me except the results on Sunday

Thanks Paul Sinclair for the pics and videos


Just my 2cents, no bashing intended, just venting

Update! We've put up the full boards (heat race set-up) from before round 3. Since they resorted after yesterday's qualifying, this should show about how everyone at the race is doing. We've also gotten some pics of the new tires at the event with a mini-report on what's going on. Modified qualifying results from today are coming in a bit, keep an eye out!

Paul,

Thanks for keeping us all updated on what's going on. You and the on scene reporter (Chazz) are doing a great job. Thanks!

Blocking out liverc.com at Cactus is about the dumbest thing I've seen in RC in a long time. Cactus Classic is not about you, or me, or the track owners, or anyone... it's "Cactus". It's a spectacle that has captured the attention of the whole world of RC in every country for over 20 years.

Unfortunately, I know way more about this than I should, and it's really childish. That's why our hobby will always stay below a scrabble tournament in the rest of the world's eyes, we just can't get over ourselves.

There will be some people pissed at me for saying this, and it's.... case in point!
