Thanks Stan
The demon 1 has holes drilled for the ntc3 rack.

All you have to do is buy the hardware!

Enjoy your demon1--- I do!!
Peace and happy Racing!

Default Debut

As Ray posted earlier, yesterday was the debut for my Demon and it was everything I had hoped for. The car improved my lap times by .2 - .3 of a second per lap over my TC3. I know it doesn't sound like alot, but the Demon allowed me to drive more consistant fast laps than before. Over the course of a 5 minute race, that made me 1.5 laps faster. The cars handling is awesome! Especially in transitioning from side-to-side i.e. chicanes/esses. It cuts thru them so quickly. It was also nice to see how stable it is on the straights. I just want to thank everybody on this thread for all their help, especially to Victor and Ray for your personalized attention.

Thanks Paul. Now all I have to do is learn how to control my nerves and stop blowing some of my lines in the turns.

Fuzzy-Thanks for the use of the speedo!! I'll have it for you on Sunday!!

RBLove-Cars really good. Chicky and Dana were still just flying-they had a GReat race in Stock Sedan. Dana got taken out near the end or it would have been a another Dumas/Cyrul finish!!!

This is also my problem, when I am in the top 3, my nerves makes me nervous, like, holding the controller harder, my legs freeze and harden, like I'm being tortured? hehehehe Any tips?

I don't know. I've been racing for 11 years and still haven't figured it out.

Default Race Report from Fred

Racing weekend update, Roar region 2 Regionals,

Well, if there was a worst luck of the weekend award I got it!
I started out the weekend not having the right tires. I put my tire
order in to late to get them for the race. So I went with what I had,
Take off Foams. Sat, Touning stock. I missed the first round as I had
some drivetrain issues. I was able to get them fixed and qualified some
where in the B main, 5 or 6th I think, sorry i wasnt really paying
attention. Car handeling problems due to the tires was where my
attention was. I ended up finishing about the same 5th or 6th in the B.
I learned after the race on sat. about a trick for the tires to keep
them from traction rolling. So I went home that night and Glued all the
outside edges of my tires. I went back on sunday hopeing to do much
better and my luck just got worse. Right before the first round I went
to turn on my car an my speedo was smoked! so I missed the first round.
I got a new speedo in and went out for the second round. The car started
off GREAT! I was on a 34 lap pace wich would have Qualified me for the
A. Luck strikes again. Half way through the run my tires go away and the
car is very loose! ended up finishing with a 30 lap run. 3rd round was
just as bad. tires were just gone! I ran another 30 lap run. I was only
quaified 2nd in the C main. I needed to do something. I went to my tire
box and put on a set of tires that everone said shouldnt have worked.
They were 40 shore multi-ring 26mm fronts and and 40 shore multi-ring
30mm rear. went out to practice before the main and WOW the car was
awesome! I went out for the C-Main hopeing to put down a A main run! the
start ended up horible! I got a hole shot and the leader decided to turn
left instead of right at the first turn. i got booted from the track and
was about 7 seconds behind! I was pissed. Latif yelled accross the track
"CALM DOWN" so I just concentrated and passed the leader before the
first lap was over I ran a 14.83 after that it was ON!!! 9.8, 8.97,
8.86, 8.99, 8.96, 8.97, 8.87 I was on a TQ TIME! 36 in 5:00.00 every one
was STUNNED! then tragity struck, I blew up the motor on the streight! I
am not sure what else could have gone wrong this weekend but it happend.
I appoligise to all that have supported me this week. I guess that luck
just wasnt with me.
I want to thank Victor from Warpspeed racing for the phone call on sat
night after the learned about my drive train problems. Thanks it showed
me what kind of person you are. I also want to thank Mike from Team 1 RC
your stock motor WAS AWESOME!!! Guess we'll still have to work on the
mods some more.
I also want to thank Jeff Cuffs and Angelo D'Ellasandro from Team
Trinity for all there help. Thanks also to Mike Mulherin and Latif for
your support as well.
I will be takeing a few weeks of as this race had drained me
finianticaly and have to get ready for christmas. I will return to the
racing scene the second or third week in Jan to prepair for the
Snowbirds classic in feb.
Thanks again to all.

guys one of the thing i discoverd this weekend is that the d2 like softer springing then the d1 because of the shorter wheel base which doesnt have the same wieght transfer as the longer car.
