Next weekend starts the fun

If you're looking to get some practice in before Vegas or the USVTA Southern Nats.... NORCAR at The Gate is the place to be!!!

(Even Steve Dunn will be there!!)


The layout will be a smaller version of what's been run at the iic.

I'm bringing the Foam TC out of retirement.

What are the motor / ESC rules for the Foam TC class?

I know better than to use the terms "strap on" and "full wood" around this crew, but here goes: I better strap on a 3.5 with boost so I can pull full wood. Drive with the throttle, baby!

With so much time spent testing, I'll just guess at a rollout for 13.5 blinky foam.

Now that you've strapped-on, don't hold full wood too long at the end of the straight. Wouldn't want you going diffballs deep into timing/scoring.

I'm not going to run "new" tires that small. 57.5mm is where I'll start out.
