I remember during the TC Mod A3 hearing Barry Baker yell "Can someone pop my ball cup back on?"

TC3s....looks like they didn't fair to well at this competition...yes barry made the show but he wasn't top 3....maybe this will spark AE to work on a new car after seeing all the new tc's flying....pro4, 415, yokomo, ect.


Anyways...great event coverage and pics!

Default Great Race!

I want to say great job to all the crew at FTS. They put on a great race. Those who did not attend really missed out. The best of the best where there and the racing was great.

The next opportunity to race electric at FTS will be in June check http://www.fullthrottlespeedway.com/calendar.html for more details. Another grat race at FTS will be the August Florida State Race. Check www.FSEARA.org for details.

I want to thank FTS for a great Pre worlds event. I was impressed by the great driving and inspirational behavior of the Pro Drivers.

Jarod thanks for the great pics!!!

Some drivers were having some setup issues but they were just practicing for the worlds. Barry was fast and so was Tossolini. These guys were dealing with a tire that does not work on 140 degree track surface ( can you say Slick). When the track was at 120 deg or less the tires were good but 140+ the tires were good for one run and 1-2 minutes and then slick rick took over. I give a lot of credit to these guys for making these tires work some what. They probably should have used take off 32 or 36.

The CS32GL is not a higher temp tire. It is a lower traction tire for situations where the CS27gl's are too stuck (yes....it does happen).

I went to dinner with Surikarn, Hara, Oscar Jansen and Scotty Ernst and they all said the tires were fine it was just the temp variance that made the ideal setup hard to find. From cool and overcast to almost 100 degrees it was hard to get the car good at all temps. They all said that's part of racing and everyone had to deal with the same issues. It it had been hot at all times or cool at all times it would have been easier to set up the car for the tires.

Default Any dominant Sedan?

At this level-its clear that 100% of everything contributes to a top performance-but having said that-was there any one car that stood out over the weekend? LIke Josh's Mod Sedan at the recent ROAR carpet nats. Just flat out dominant!!!

Like one that just carried the highest corner speed.

Look on the bright side or the "just maybe" side. Maybe they didnt feel it necessary to test at the Pre-Worlds with a car that they wont be running? Hmmmmm.........

j/k-DOnt flame me for that. But it would be cool to see a new TC3 and a new XXXS at the Worlds to compete against the Xray, Pro4 and etc. but they need to releae them 60 days prior to the Worlds or they cannot run them. SO time is running out.

Of course released and back-ordered will be one in the same!!!
