DON_NC: It's tough to really explain the effect, but it has been worse for the 12th scale cars. The bodies end up rubbing like crazy on turn 2 and a lot of guys end up getting squirrely. The worst is on the starts, where we've seen one car get sideways and wreck half the field.

I have no results yet but will have them posted the minute the round is done.

429racer: I was referring to just a designated time & place at next year's Snowbirds where people who frequent R/C Tech can get together and meet each other, hang out, whatever.

Futureal, just wanted to let you know that you did a really excellent job on covering the Bird's, you must have got about 5hrs of sleep the whole week, since you were both racing and reporting results. Again, great job.

i guess stephens car wasn't good for timmy, if he did indeed drive that car, becasue he didn't do nearly as good as in novak.
Petzl: I belive those are the losi aluminum hexs+o-ring. I have the red ones, and you can get all that stuff in blue too. I guess he truly is running all losi, because the assoc. ones are wider, maybe he runs spacers to off set it?

WOW...just got back from a weekend at the Birds......as usual a great show !!! Shane, great coverage here and although I saw you a million and one times, I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to say that in person. You were just to busy to catch in one place for any length of time. For those who don't know it... This Futureal guy can drive too !!!!!

Regarding T. Heiser....met his Mom in the spectator area....his replacement car was one of Barry Bakers'. Amazingly , she said the thief took time to smoke a cig....but took nothing else but the car...which wasn't even a roller yet...it was still being built. Go Figure !!!

Met Rayhuang and PMRgirl......excellent people. Ray is a class act and very friendly. Erika is as nice as some of us expected her to be. She's the pleasant voice most of us talk to when we call ProMatch.

Which class is running at this time?
