What if the Reedy Race was a one day race, Sunday only. 3 of 4 rounds count.

The winner would be........

And if we used Sunday only and no drops were allowed
Doug that's pretty interesting. Looks like Lemux would be the main guy who improved his position the most.

Your pics are awesome too.

With all the new Spektrum tech out there what percentage of racers actually used a Spektrum and/or Spektrum Pro?

The pictures of cars on the track are beautiful, thank you to all those that took them.

They're also pretty boring from a racer's perspective. I love seeing what the "pros" do with their cars and pits and everything else. And please don't tell me about that other retarded site that forces you to register to view threads. I don't care if they've got pictures of the prototype AE car, I'm sick of the way they're pimping the site here, and it's bad form to force registration on people. Let you product speak for itself. You guys should be banned for spamming.

Yep...what he said. Cars on the track are ok but cars in the pits are what people want. The cars on the track only apeal to the owners of the car or for people who want to make a cheezy wall-paper of their favorite driver. Inside the pits is where all the action is.

sorry ... just curious... was it really Hara is on new tires or it's just you who actually not sure if it was really new tires or it's used but looked like new???

Sometimes, because of third party, things can really go wrong..

no offence but just what I think.

Happy racing everyone.

p/s sometimes we win.. sometimes we loose.. and that's sucks!

Don't worry, Jon. No one's going to question your manhood.

I think the whole point of running 8 rounds is all of the drivers get a good cross section of driving with all of the other drivers and starting from a variety of places on the grid. It kind of equalizes everything out.

Hebeki did tech, he would know. The tires are teched and then marked on a sheet to track the use of tires, easy way to find if more than the alotted 4 sets are used, this was done for all the racers, spec, mod and invite.
You really have to be kidding about not being able to tell the diff between new and used tires. Lest see now, new tires are nice and shinny while used tires are bound to be scuffed up. All 4 sets were labled and marked.
These people that put on this race have thier acts together to the point of handing out a time schedule, that other than the rain delay was pretty much spot on.

Sometimes it is indeed difficult to tell whether or not tires are new in tech for top drivers. Guys like Marc do not usually wear out tires very badly compared to the average racer. In addition to that, most of the drivers are going to have some sort of "shiny" traction compound applied that makes them look newer.
