That is fantastic news! John makes every race sound exciting! I hope his voice holds out!

Looks like I picked a great time to go to the snowbirds

There was some mention in an earlier post that you should bring a flyer about the race with you when your flying with your rc gear. Is there one I can print off and bring with me?

Are there any concerns about the availability of motor spray or Jack the Gripper at the race? Should I plan on shipping some to myself?

They always have an entire-well stocked hobby shop. I wouldn't worry about it.

Due to a very understanding boss...when I finish a family vacation in Florida I can work in a local FL office until the Birds start. And get to see the first couple days of qualifying after that...Hello CRC.

Hi Fred,

Everything steers more than you-know-what; but, you-know-what is still a terrific carpet car.

I am into CRC pan cars now...especially WGT. Was too frustrated with the on-then-off rubber tire issues in TC.

Please say hi to Simon for me. Terrific driver and nice guy there.

Bill

Just want to note that we always start to get emails this close to the race about racers worrying we won't take entries at the race. Don't worry we will!!! You can sign up for a 2nd class too at the race if you already are in.

Make sure to check out site as we are posting new and exciting stuff everyday!!! Should have initial class list up this week sometime.

Thanks everyone,
Mike
