These trunks work great, just don't expect the wheels to last even one encounter with airport luggage handlers

I have the following races on a DVD:

13.5 Rubber A1
12th Mod A1
Stock Sedan A1
Mod Sedan A1
13.5 Rubber D
12th Stock G
12th Mod A2
Mod Sedan A2
12th Stock A2

All were recorded with a Sony DV HandyCam. Most were from the entrance side of the drivers' stand. One or two from the middle of the strait. 99% of the race was following the leader and traffic surrounding him.

Cameraman quality is amateur average to good, very little shaking.

If someone wants a copy, PM me. I'd guess $5 to cover the disc and shipping L48...

Thugs ...... you can try emailing Doug Hay [email protected] and he should have them. To answer your question about stock guys. There are no more handouts in ROAR rules. Stock motor rules are 17.5 bl or ROAR approved 27t brushed B.Y.O.M. for stock now. There was one 17.5 in the 1/12th stock main and I think everyone else ran CO27's.
