i thought the grip might come up enough to shave those last couple of seconds off to get the 23

I'm impressed at the number of entries for the event in ONLY three classes. Stock & Mod Sedan and F1. That's all!

67 F1 with a G-Main.
202 in Pro Stock with a T-Main!
92 in Mod with an I-Main.

That's impressive.
And that's with handout ESC's and motors.

Wouldn't say the stock class at the ETS is a real entry class
Also you have to work much more on your car to get it up to speed as in mod. Everything has to move super super 100% free plus you must know how to drive smoooooth!
Snowbirds was even closer. Without going in too deep (only looking at a-mains)

mod - 10.292 (Fisher)
super stock 13.5 - 10.555 (Hardman)
Stock 17.5 - 10.554 (Fairtrace)

They do not. You can see the rules here http://ets.redrc.net/rules/

Its actually pretty excellent and created some close racing. I think its amazing a handout spec motor/spec esc race generated 200+ entries.

Yes that's normal. Smaller track usually means smaller difference specially if you don't have a long straight. At Hudy Arena (ETS) last year I think the difference was 2s+ between mod and stock. The track has a long straight ...

For most regulars (me included) on a really tight indoor track i's better to go with less power in mod to get some fun and consistency. I'm faster with a boosted 10.5T motor then with a mod one.

To get this extra 0.3s not only in one lap but on every lap that's super hard.

Pretty high but no traction if you didn't hit any dots. Most cars had lots of understeer in the beginning of the weekends. It wasn't like the usual carpet conditions.
Some people described it as high grip asphalt conditions.

Seems strange, cars just don't look right in the vids.

No, they looked horrible.

Probably a combination of unusual carpet and the controlled additive. I like the Ride tyre, but for once it looked to me that Sorex tyres may have helped the cars look a bit more "natural" for once.

No, but the dots lift the inside of your car and then it flips over on high traction tracks.

The cars all look understeerey and stuck in the track.
To me it looked like they were almost bouncing around, a bit like when a car with a solid rear axle tramps.
