"If", that is the word of the day.

I have 3 motors, all 3 are below the as submitted numbers. All 3 have passed tech at last fall/winters races. But all 3 will fail this weekend. I hope I'm wrong, but I think I won't be the only one in this predicament.

I would say I have been neutral about can-am format, but from my current point of view it would eliminate any concerns. You pay the entry, time off from work, travel expenses and in the end may not even be able to run. I guess I can only hope it works out.

I've been around dealing with these motors long enough that I'll use some common sense and my best judgement on the motors. It wont be a ROAR even with that tight of motor tech....but anything that is WAY under the ROAR number also wont pass especially if its something that is way below what the "normal" range is for that motor.

hope that makes sense. We just want everyone to happy with the tech and even happier with the racing and weekend!!

I'll say this, I trust both EA's ability and integrity in tech. If he says it's good, that's good enough for me.

it was a great event as usual . had a blast running vta for my first time since scale nats 5yrs ago. enjoyed watching the mod tc nice to see everyone respect everyones bubble to the best of there ability .
can-am tc was a hit from what i heard . ran 3 different motors with same lap times as i expected to see with traction and we pretty much had the track to our selves friday morning while everyone waited in motor tech (they should sell a fast pass LOL )
MYRON cant thank you enough for putting your money on the table for trophies ,by far the best of any race.
hope EA can catch up on his sleep today from hosting this great event im sure he was needing it after this weekend

My first big event. There sure was a lot of great racing going on. Great to meet some of out of towners and it was fun to watch the newest racers (Harry & Courtney) really enjoying themselves too. Can't wait until next race day

I always enjoy this event and this year was no different. Big kudos to Myron, EA, Dirla and everyone else! The BBQ dinner on Saturday evening was amazing!

I decided to scale back this year and only run Can-Am Super Stock. I ran three different handout motors over the course of the weekend and there was no noticeable difference. The motors never got hot and I didn’t notice much fade. The “fast guys” were still fast but I never had to worry about getting out motored by a newer/hotter motor.

Also, the level of competition in all classes this year was pretty crazy!
