Josh - Im going to be using the CEFX 12 with the original front end, Any suggestions for tires to use in Cleveland this year or am I better off upgrading to the Evo2 chassis? Im only going to be running STOCK.

Vicko - We will later today. I was waiting for the standoffs to come in. They arrived friday so we just have to package them up.

Greg - Normal hours for Friday, Sat, Sunday and I have to check with Angel but I think it will be either Noon-9pm or 2pm-9pm on Monday. Tuesday will be normal hours.

nrtv20 - I would suggest updating to the Evo2 chassis with AE front end. With that, I can give you a super competitive set-up to race with there.

Greg,

I just noticed, you have your own thread. I was going to post your picture ther but the Google search didn't turn up any good pics. Some of the sites that came up were pretty funny though. "racing to the rainbow" priceless.

JC ~ Thank for letting me know Bro. Now, If I can get the workbench in the basement built, and find the box with my 1/12th car in it, I might come out tomorrow. After moving I don't know where everything is!!!

Fred ~ old news.... I tried googling "Porn Stache" but my work computer blocked it...

Josh -If you are able to send me a list of parts necessary to update my current CEFX 12 to the EVO2 I'll head on over to your web site and start shopping!! Also what are your thoughts on the new JACO Prism tires? Is everyone running Lilac/yellow for stock? I would assume they are too soft for cleveland?

Thanks Josh for the setup help at Cleveland with my new CEFX ride...

Got my car about a week before cleveland ran a couple packs through after building it and qualified 8th in stock 12th. That says a lot about the car. It was my first A at cleveland. I went just a tick too far the wrong way on the gearing for the main and my car slowed down, but I was up to 3rd for awhile before getting peeled and sent to the back LOL ended up 7th...

I probably should've run fresh tires instead of reruns... that would've freed it up just enough. lesson learned.

I also wished I had gone back and tried the 5 deg blocks and 18's in the main to get a little more steering, as it was it was really easy to drive and handled well... just a little too planted in the corners. Never tried that after switching to the speed 8 body.

Thanks for all your help... I need to do a little setup testing before snowbirds so hopefully I can make a little better adjustments to the track conditions.

where were you at johnny? didn't have anyone to make fun of all weekend LOL but don't worry plenty of people gave me h3ll all week long.

Totorice joked on my bodies then there was josh and dirla LMAO
could be the first couple of practice runs I still had my big CRC stickers on that body I ran at the gate on my t-fource LOL or the 3 different body post holes where its been on 3 or 4 different cars LOL

or it could've been the super pimp paint job I did in the stairwell at 2am with flourescent yellow that ran LOL looked like a yellow camo body LOL

then there was josh making fun of my 5 or 6 year old servos in my 12th scale LOL. You know I have to match my servos to my driving ability... SLOW

then TEAM AARP skip and Eli were giving me h3ll saying dirla kicked my arse all weekend LOL I just refused to even respond to that LOL

course I did offer eli a roll of toilet paper in case he wanted to write down all his 8000 sponsors

overall it was a good weekend though.

later

Michael

Easy... I've made the A's at the birds, vegas, classic, and now cleveland. BQ'd the nats this year... gotta make the A this year for sure... Still want a podium at one of the big 3... my 3rd at the classic was nice, but still not the same as the big 3...

but I will say that cleveland was definately the most competition and the toughest to make by far.

hey man we all blow out sometimes just some more than others LOL

some stuff was better and some stuff didn't change, but overall I think the race went a little better this year.
