If I make like Goetz and do them while straifing down the straight away I might be able to get a circle action going....

Someone ask Sugarpants if he'll help me get it 'straight' when he comes back.

LiveRC is covering it. I'll be taping some, but in respect for what they are doing I won't be putting race coverage up until later. What they do is a lot of work.
I'm thinking of putting together a mini-vid about teching in at a big race. Might put that up sooner.
Has anyone done a "Guide to what to expect at a big race" on video? Any online? I'll do one as a gift to the racing community if ROAR is cool with it and it needs done. I'll be at the track asking them about it after my day job today around 5pm.

Someone -please- document what brand of motors people are using in the non-mod classes. Please! :-)
