I watched the 17.5 A main objectively and honestly didn't see anything but good racing by the top 4 drivers,unfortunately when running that close one mistake can cost you. I didn't see anything wrong with what Chris Adams did,however the crowds reaction i found rather hilarious as i'm completely sure none of the people moaning and groaning have ever touched someone while attempting to pass. Agreed this was the A main and therefore had the best drivers but c'mon guys it's all part of racing and after reading some of the stories on here i'm sure it was not the worst incident of the weekend.Just my 2 cents feel free to spend it wherever you want.

Thanks for posting the results, but the B Main results seem to be missing from all of the on-road classes.

I was watching the video of 1/12th mod run, and at the end, they scan a bar code (or something) which prints out the lap times. Is this part of the rc scoring pro software? This was very interesting...

No. John Catricala wrote that program. It works with scoring pro to give you your laps. Very cool.

Many thanks... Does it work off a bar code (that was my guess)... No I'm not a programmer... just trying to understand how it works... So if bar code, is it based on one bar code label per class or per driver then the screen asks which class? Just asking...

Yep, barcode. You pick up a sticker that corresponds to your name and put it on the bottom of your radio. Then you can scan it as you're walking off the stand and get a print out with all your practice lap times. It's a great system. Reminds me of the sort of thing you see at laser tag places.

There is a endless list of people who would love to buy a fast laps system from John. I solicit to buy one every time I see him..

Hey Chris,

Click on this YouTube video -->http://youtu.be/EDzvupJr1JU and look over on the right column to see related Snowbirds videos. There was one in there of the 1/12 Scale 17.5 A-Main.

Check out this article on Xray's web page specifically about the Figure 8 Race.

If anyone had an issue with what happened between Corey and I with a min left in the race shouldn't anymore. The video shows a clean inside pass into the sweeper. Corey lifted and came down on me. We talked about it after and he agreed. I know you Florida guys wanted him to win it :P See you guys in Mod and 13.5 from now on.
This is absolutely correct . What happens between me and Chris in the sweeper was I went a little wide Chris got to the inside I tried to shut the door but he was already there . Because I lifted I went to the pipe . There was nothing he did that was wrong it was my mistake and we all make them. In the end I am very happy where I finished especially when the top 5 where separated by a little over a second.
It was great racing with you Chris I'm looking forward to next time

Hey Cory, you drove great at the Snowbirds. You will be even faster once you get your hands on a T4. Btw, that pass you made on Franchesco was an absolute beauty! Surprised it hasn't been mentioned more.

Were you driving a T3 2012? If so wow I'm impressed, and also will you post the set up? I'm still racing my 2013 this year too.

John's Program works off the signal genarated from the AMB lap counter. it captures the same date that Autoscore and Rcsoring Pro uses.

Anyone that wants to progress in racing and get sponsored needs to read this exchange.

They are two class acts and are great representatives of the brands supporting them.
