No, Horsham doesn't run any foam sedan, but that track has enough bite to flip a WGT car. Seen it!

That's actually not hard to do. My local track I would call medium grip but some guys still have occasional traction roll issues in WGT. I even did it once with the 1/12th.

Hope you and Ricky V are having fun.

Drivers still continue to search for the elusive traction that is missing at this year’s Birds. Normally, there is more traction that you need, but due to the new Trinity Sticky Fingers compound, it really has changed the feel this year.

On the ESC front, Tekin and Advanced seem to be at the top of the charts taking more then one TQ. Stay tuned for more results Friday as the on-road drivers have the only one round tomorrow.

Check out another cool video highlighting some of the top Futaba and Checkpoint team drivers including 13.5 Rubber Tire TQ Barry Baker and 17.5 Rubber Tire TQ Brad Johnson.

They've had an eventful morning thus far to say the least. Apparently a transformer has blown up outside so they are forced to push, at least, onroad back until tomorrow morning. Bummer!

When video is restored pull down any app that has an embedded java player, I've been using Winamp because even with the latest java package installed IE on Win7Pro has still been evil

I would assume Josh is running Speed Passion - he was announced a few months back as their North American sales director or something like that.
