Can a brotha just get a win???? TQ and blew azz in the main. It's all Paul's fault I finally got my car working the way I wanted though. Good run for you Losi guys. The nats should be fun. See ya at the Reedy race.

you're lucky you werent there... The car is rocking but I need a little more corner speed to be 100% happy. I have two changes to make for the next test session after the Reedy.

...the track is also rented the Monday after the Nat's 06/12, but is available 06/13 - 06/22 as we were "taking 2 weeks off" (till somone wanted to rent it that Monday-- DOOOHHH) after the nats.

...not sure if it's a "false sense of security" ...but having the police station accrosss the street I think tends to keep the "bad element" away.

re: track layout

I was looking at the F1 track this weekend in Spain circuit de catalonia and it looks very similar to some of the layouts speedworld uses, long back straight etc..I was thinking it would be sick to run an actual F1 layout..just sometime if not for the nat's..
