If you notice, they're selling XRay Evo 2 Freedom of Choice kits in that add, only the price and part number is for a Monster Stock motor. I know that's been in there at least for 2 years and has yet to be changed.

Unfortunately the driver in question pulled off the track so quickly there was no chance to let him go back by. His car wasn't even broken! All he had to do was finish the race and he would have finished ahead of me overall. Although I find it interesting that not finishing last means so much to some people. I was happy to be in the A. And there really is no difference between 9th and 10th.

Lots of crying at that race. And I thought gas off-road guys were babies

We will never know if someone was intentionally trying to get an advantage. History tells me they were.

And I should clarify that by "they", I mean the sponsor, not the drivers.

Aside from that, everything in this thread about RCCA is fiction. No one here has any idea what the deal is wtih Trinity or RCCA.
The rule stated any C2 was fine. The early C2 motors were Hemi winds. Which are actually closer to an 18 turn than a 19 turn. Which this WAS LEGAL FOR THE IIC!! Becasue they were both a C2 by part number and name.

What Chad done was grab some Hemi arms at the shop and didnt pay attention that they didnt have comm locks on them. The Hemi winds without Comm locks were C1 arms which is a different motor all together. So that is where the problem came from. But let me state that even though they didnt have comm locks they were NOT ADVANCED AT ALL!!

So techniclly the motor was illegal because it lacked a comm lock but it didnt have any advantage becasue the comm with still centered.

Actually the person that turned on the lights did it to set his trim and he told Joe about it first thing the next morning and Joe said it was Ok and thanks to that person for telling him and being honest. Lights were on for maybe 2-3 minutes and that was it.

Your "somebody" that was there was so high from smoking dope all night that he wouldnt have know what practice was to begin with.

You should have hit me up for some brushes at the race...I would have hooked ya up with some!!

A few guys ran out whole packs after the track had been closed and everyone was leaving. They were locals by the way...
