Default 2006 Reedy Race

During the Thursday practice session at Reedy, Craig Drescher (sp?) parked his in front of the sweeper while i was handing out the t-shirts and driver badges. i realized i was looking at silver bulkheads that were pretty close together (ala T2, FK05, Tamiya.. etc).

then when they started practice, i saw the associated sticker and Craig was driving!

he did come by Tech to check his car, i couldnt get a look, but he did let the tech guys get a good look at it. but i doubt we'll be able to take pictures.

Dude, Someone get some balls, bum rush the AE pits with a cam and snap some shots!

Are they running a mid motor or a rear motor? How do the new arms look? (long, short, skinny, beefy?)

the carlooks pretty nice. The arms look just any other experimental arm. It's in it's begining stages so alot will change by the time it hits the market. Barry did make some changes that improved his cr even though I still think I can take him in 19 turn Craigs still looks rock solid. I don't know if they're testing two different cars or what but look for Barry (old age and all) to be right there at the tone. In other news.......he did stay at a Holiday Inn once.....

That doesn't count, you have to stay at a Holiday Inn Express for that to work.

It would be nice to see a belted AE car but lets hope they don't rush it just because of market pressure

Sorry, no pictures of the new car but if you were carefull you could get a good look at it @ the Reedy Race. I hate to say it, but it looks a lot like the T2 in many respects (of course they are all starting to look similar). The motor is at the rear of the car, not mid chasis. The one thing I was really interested in seeing was how they re-engineered the steering rack but could not get close enough to figure out what they did. I hate the fact that I've got to throw a ton of washers at the current rack to ge the car to turn and hope they have done something about that. In the end, Drescher and Baker both won races in the invite class so the car has some chops even in its development stages.

"won some races"? ... if not for motor issues drescher would have another 1st for sure... and he was in second tracknig down first when he locked up a second time on day 1... he easily could have been in the running to repeat... the car is awesome... keep in mind like last year this is its first race out, and its not an upgraded car like the FT TC4 but a ground up redesign... the results are ridiculous considering these circumstances... anyone remember lemieux and cyruls "prototypes" from last year?... exactly.
