Huh! A tie rod.

Just a reminder for those of you coming to practice at this weekends race; If you are planning to run in the M-Class (mini) we are no longer allowing the black can motors in this class.

Todays Race was a freakin great time! Thanks to everyone for coming out. Also thank you to Robert and Chad for helping prep the track.

Tire testing went quite well and I appreciate the effort of all the testers. Im gonna run some more tommorrow to further test the wear of the most liked tires.
I hope to be able to have a comitment on the "official" tire for the nats by the end of the week.

Great job, to all the new drivers that came out today.

Garrett! WTF?

I had a blast today despite the self induced bad luck! I would just like to say that Garrett is a cheater. I think he was about 1.2 seconds faster than me and I'm gonna say it was ALL that cheater motor! Got to see some old familiar faces and some new ones as well. I have to give a very special thanks to Mr. John Jolly for reparing my mini while I was getting my sedan ready. John, I owe you a servo saver buddy! Q dawg runs a great program and keeps things flowing all day. All in all, lots of fun today.

I figure once word gets out about it, the popularity of the RCRV will sweep the nation like wildfire.

Default RCRV

I'm keeping all rights to the idea. I'll make sure the royalties for it's use are kept within reason.

That looked like an expensive camera. I don't think you should risk it.
