As a matter of fact, there were people in the lower mains with equally fast motors as the A Main guys at the Nats.

I think BUtter will back em up on this-2004 ROAR Nats-I had one of the fastest stock sedans in the building in qualifying. It was on rails handling wise too thanks to Chicky and the motor was tuned by EA. Due to lack of talent and nervous tapping of boards every round-I ended up in the E-Main. So-yeah-in a handout race-anyone can get a killer motor.

Thumbs up Here is solution

Switch to nitro and then the power is not an issue,Smyka its 1/8 time so put the toys down and come do some real racing.

There are drivers in all forms of rc getting help so it shouldnt matter but team driving in stock electric, You have got to be kidding.

Go nitro and solve the power problem

You guys were team driving in STOCK??!!!?! That's the lamest thing I've ever heard. Smyka and A Lo, I consider you guys friends so I'm just gonna say this:

TRIPLE A-MAINS ARE RETARDED!!!

triple A-mains and Qual points lead to incredibly stupid situations, like the fastest drivers not making shows, or team driving for manufacturer glory. Please it's stock. We all take this very seriously, but TEAM DRIVING? Man that sucks.

Can't we go back to FTD qualifying and Single A-mains?

Qual points can be pretty harsh. Last year at Reedy I had two runs that were 17th fastest in 19 turn, good solid B main and I ended up 27th in the qual points.
