Yea, this is a pretty dumb discussion. Anyway, Josh is here, getting his stuff set up as we speak.

I got some pictures to post later tonight.

It is very simple- Josh is going to the gas race next week and prefers to drive. That's it. It is entirely his decision. Perhaps you should ask Josh about why he was late. He had a VERY good reason.

Who looks to be "THE MAN" so far? Are they showing lap times or just going by the seat of the pants?

Far and away, Tosolini. He was hitting 10.6s and 10.7s while the best we saw from others were 10.9s and 11.0s. Can't say if that will stay the same as the week progresses, but right now that CGM car is dialed in.

I haven't watched many of the mod practice sessions, but it looks like all the usual suspects are fast. I heard David Joor was ripping off some high 10s too.

Sounds like I may have to get a CGM chassis.

Also, regarding practice times: I don't have any data to post, Doug Hay is here with RC Scoring Pro but it is just dumping stuff to the printer.

A big footnote is that the handout motors have NOT been given out yet. So no one really knows who is fast or not in Stock and 19T classes. The motors will be distributed tomorrow afternoon during practice.

Pictures don't do that CGM justice; I saw Brian Lutz hold his car and crank the throttle, and the thing whines like a pan car. It's really something.
