Thanks Stephen, Jason, and Vick!

I know you'll do fine Stephen!


I'm also going to a Tri-State race next weekend at http://tfbraceway.com

The track I raced at last weekend is found here
http://www.intenseraceway.com, but if you want the results you have to go here
http://www.knology.net/~roadracing (the Nov 11th 2003 results)

Vick did you get my motor clamp yet?

Well ran the D1 for the first time yesterday at the First Coast Carpet Champs. I only had two practice runs, and qualified 3rd and took 2nd in the A-Main, Touring Stock.

This car is a must have for carpet racers!!!! Totally dialed, some observations, the car is very easy to drive smooth and fast, and can be pushed no problem, I think this car will really shine in the 19 turn / modified class. The car tracks straight as an arrow, w/ even steering balance left to right. The car didn't feel like a TC3, to me it felt like the handling of a belt drive car with the benefit of the TC3 drive train. Also, had a lot of interest in the car w/ some taking pics....lol

Well-done Victor!!!! This car is awesome!!!!

Doug, are those droop measurements on the AE gauge? Or is that over ride height? Other than that, that is VERY close to the setup I am running. What did you notice when you put the F block in for the R?

Hi,

what chassis is better for carpet??? the D1 or D2. at this time we are running a milled/nitro rack TC3 on foams in stock. the only thing different is I run the nitro rack mounted 180 degrees to the NTC3. (tuning towards the drivers likes).
any input would be helpfull.

Thanks
