Were the tracks similar enough from last year to this year that you could compare lap times? If so, Blackstock's winning time this year is considerably faster than what Rheinhard won with last year.

the track was the same with one minor change to the start of the straight which was the added kicker instead of a straight wall to go around onto the straight. the faster laptimes would be atributed to the 4200 vs 3800 for last year. it made a big difference.

Default IIC - THE R/C EXPERIENCE

I spent 2 days stuck to my computer watching everything, and then I went to Vegas to see first handZ.

This event had more than can be posted - let me just say, if you love r/c racing, this was it! NO OTHER VIDEO OR EVENT THAT I HAVE EVER SEEN COMPARES TO WHAT WENT ON AT THIS EVENT.

IF YOU HAVE A DREAM, SORROUND YOURSELF WITH PEOPLE WHO BELIEVE IN YOU!

Racing, conversation, new vehicles from Losi, X-ray, Speed Merchant, Associated, CRC, TOP, McMoney get ASS putting those banners together, exploding batteries, Cars catching fire, people falling off of chairs, Tire WARS, aggressive driving, RIP from Hell, Black Jack with Evil Dealers, Cocktails from Elementary, 4hour drive there, 3.5 hour drive back, Women for services (LOL), i could go on and on, but I'll just go to bed, with a Smile on my Face.

Great job on the Web cast of the race. Even those of us over here in Iraq, were able to enjoy it. Scotty you and your crew deserve all the cudo's you get. Look forward to next years race. Hopefully I can attend in person.

Awesome event and coverage. Scotty and Co. stepped it up bigtime.


The two and three man teams of announcing...Scotty, Jamie T., and Charlie S. was awesome. They set a new standard for race broadcasting.

So now that the race is in the books...

Were the new 26mm Dual Stage Jaco's the "tire to have"?

--

Anyone catch pics of Stephen Sobotka's car on fire? What happened?

--

How was the new Protoform DNA body on foams

--

Congratulations to all the racers who attended.

The peep in the dress was HOT!

Default Watching IIC while driving!

I want to congratulate Scotty, the crew, and everyone involved for this outstanding R/C event!! I know there is a ton of hard work and planning to do this and to see it go off so great is awesome. I enjoyed the coverage!

In fact - I had to run our weekly races here at home - and well - did both (don't try this at home):
