Two weeks!!! Actually thats not far from the truth I hope!! CRC cars were top 17 in Stock 12th. First non CRC car was Bill Sydor with a L4 (wtih my old set-up on it no less). but after the Mains he drove my 3.2r (well his-I borrowed it from him) he might be CRC again too!!!

my car needed a medic after the 4th round in 19 turn 12th scale LOL

I guess turning in 4 foot early is a problem... its the brain pain coach

My 12th scale was pretty good even though it was a t-bar and all
thanks ray for all the support... Were it not for him telling me I should've run a spring car I couldn't have been BQ lol

Unfortunately I'll be building a whole new car that one cannot be resurrected everything is bent or broke on it LOL Deductible was too high for insurance to total it out

I sure had a great time out there! Between the racing, chinese food every day, and the funny messed up pit humor i can't wait to go again next year.

I guess ill add in also. Was my first big race and It was an absolute blast. Next year ill have to sign up for a second class other than just stock 12th. There was so much time between my qualifiers that I walked around the south gate shopping mall too many times to count. Thanks for an awesome facility and an excellent staff.

Mark and Frank were using Pro-Match cells, so I don't think that statement is true. But it appears Dayger was running for Trinity.

Special thanks to the Gate Crew for putting on yet another awesome event. I had a blast, and as always...learned a lot. Following in the foot-steps of Mr. Wise....lost a wheel nut in 19 turn and tapping out during qualifying for stock. .
Great runs by Wise and Seaball to put it in the A and finish strong.
Huang...the sleeper...I think I got the worst of that in 19t.
See y'all at the warm-up.

Great race this past weekend. The Gate put on a good show. The days were long however I think the schedule was what gave the race so many entries. It is nice to have a race that practice is on Friday with qualifying and mains on Saturday and Sunday. I think there were 262 entries

Congrats to Bobby Flack in TC Mod...even though you run an Xray car...lol. You drove great this past weekend.

Team Losi will be at the Cleveland Warmup at The Gate starting November 18. CYA guys then!!

I'd like to 2nd that and on my own say that more races could and should tighten up there schedules. Its just too much these 5 to 6 day races. They become 8 with extra travel days in and out of town!!! Sorry for the rant!!

Like a personalized pep-talk that turned the weekend around.
"Don't let me see your car within a foot of any board. If I do, I'll step on it."

It moved my soul Mr. Goetz. It sparked a little ember of self-confidence that grew like fire each and every lap that my a-arm stayed intact. When the computerized voice cried out after five minutes of battle "Car 3-You're Done" I knew that I had not only conquered the forces of attrition that tried to enforce most grievous harm upon my car, I had also conquered my inner withholdings to maximize some of my potential in not sucking.

...or something like that.
