I'm hoping all the A's get posted soon. I'd like to watch the 17.5 and 13.5 races.

Hey Barry, you've talked about heading out to Denver for MHIC, pick up one of the cheap Awesomatix cars and come join us this year.

You could make the arguement that what wins on Sunday sells on Monday in this regard, but quite honestly, people are likely basing their car purchase based on what Eric Anderson is running vs Paul Lemieux. Why would we want to grow a class in the US that has no carry over to the rest of the world?

Mod ashphalt on the other hand is a blast to drive. This is what we should be encouraging people to run. If you want to drive down a 150 ft straight on an ashphalt track with a 13.5, be my guest, thats sandbagging and boring.
LOL, At first I was totally opposed to the first half of your note, and then totally in agreement with the second half.

It seems to me the correct conclusion is we just need carpet tracks with longer straights!

This is the truth. Last year at carpet nats, if you looked at what people were racing around the country, there were probably zero ARC cars and only a handful of Awesomatix. Josh won mod and 13.5 sedan with the ARC. How many of them do you see at the track these days, a year later? How many new Awesomatix have you seen pop up in the past year in spite of not having a significant mod win before this weekend?

Racers are smart. They know what translates to them.

Anyway, everything I've heard and seen makes it sound like ROAR and Hobbyplex did a great job. I was only able to watch a few frames a minute online, but what little I did catch seemed great! Thanks for keeping one of the nicest facilities in the world open all this time!

ROAR RMT and HobbyTown USA Hobbyplex did a fantastic job this past week. Smooth, organized and relaxed made for a fun weekend. Chris Goetz did an awesome job announcing and keeping us laughing!

Hey Tim

Videos on LiveRC are archived within the results from the race event, just scroll down below results sheets
Unfortunately the quality is the same as the live event
