well its close guys. Mike's updated the website and this year we get to choose which of 5 outfits the victory lane gals will be wearing. And sorry guys - there is no "N" option, for Nothing. Since this is really disney/family oriented this year i'm gonna go with "C". Current results have "A" in the lead.

Good luck and ROCK THE VOTE

I heard a rumor that Team Checkpoint is going to have a charging station trackside?

A huge thanks to Checkpoint for stepping up for us and providing the 'Racer Checkpoint' for this year's birds. This will allow racers that come down early to still get their peak in before they race or practice. Thanks Scott!

We have our FCC Florida Carpet Cup this weekend at Minnreg in FLA. Should be great racing.

Hotel faxed me a room list and we have more rooms gone than ever before at the old place... that is awesome. It is going to be a great week with so many racers in one place. Margaritas and flip flops coming soon! Lots of late signups coming in now (from all over). Going to be great!

Tune us in this weekend: htp://www.rcthunder.net

Hey Mike,
Not to mix things up here, but for the touring outlaw class is it going to be okay to use a 13.5 brushless instead of a 10.5? Just curious.

In Outlaw class, those who are running 19T brushed motors have to bring their own? But they just have to ROAR legal. And could you buy 19t motors there when you check in?
Cant wait! This is going to be so fun

thanks,
Chris

13.5... hmm I know it's slower but someone would say something since rules are 10.5.

We will have 19s there yes.. that is fine.

Working on some updates today. Tons of entries flying in. Will have class totals with openings today I hope. Getting close to the race and getting full.
