Default shaft drive 17.5 at reedy race

Hi, the comment below was posted in the 417v5 thread, Can anyone update as to whether the SHAFT DRIVE cars in 17.5 class kept their speed going?
I found it interesting to read the initial summary.

Notes from the Reedy Touring Car Race of Champions.

Rheinard looks to be unstoppable. Only other car looking like they belong in his league are Wilck and Krapp running Kyosho. They continue to use the Raceberry chassis, with Kiyo along their sides for support.

In open Mod Ethan Erichinger is the current pacesetter running an Xray. Andrew Hardman mechanic turned rent-a-ride driver (and former Tamiya guru) Corey Whiteman is right there with him using a back-up Hardman-owned Xray. Tamiya drivers McPhee, Williams and myself all have 1 solid round of qualifying, but are looking to capture the elusive 2nd solid run to solidify ourselves into the A-main, and bump someone out of the top 10.

13.5; Stellfue, Cortes (both AE), and Caroli have dominated the qualifying the rounds and the race is shaping up to be a triple A-main battle among themselves, with Erchinger dropping out to concentrate on Mod.

The talk of the 17.5 class has been of the Awesomatix duo of Austin Brumblay and Aaron Young. Many are speculating on the advantages their shaft-driven drivetrain in the slower horsepower class provide. Kyle Bergstrom, who to the best of my knowledge, is piloting a Hacker-powered Top Photon, is also showing good pace.

One last round of qualifying tomorrow, with mains to follow!

Kyle ended up TQ, and he was also running the Awesomatix. The top three in 17.5 were out ahead of the pack by themselves with this chassis. The rest of the field was bunched up as a second group several seconds back.

There was an Awesomatix in mod that also did well. After several days of sorting power plant and chassis settings, Jake Danilchik was 10th on the grid in the b-main but quickly moved to 3rd and was closing on 2nd when the fan died on the esc two laps from the end causing a thermal safety limp mode to kick in and ended up having him finish 5th. The car looked pretty good, so it seems capable in mod as well.

I have been running the original chassis, but the latest version is showing that it can be very competitive.

Even with a smaller than expected Invitational class field, this was easily the best Reedy Race in recent memory!

Thanks to Eric and the whole Nor-Cal Hobbies crew plus all the racers who continue to make this the best on-road race in the country!

Hey Rick, are you making plans to have it at NOR-CAL again next year?

Good job, Norcal Gen2 racers: Mini, James, and Austin.

Didn't get to talk to Mini much since I don't race mod. James and Austin are certain very helpful and with great personality.
