I was planning on running wgt-r at iic again Bill, but if its wgt I'll use my race funds for another event or three Lol! Considering pro10 didnt have a full A i wonder why they decided to eliminate the wgtr class and not pro10? iic is expensive and you hardly get any track time so I think this year I'll try Snowbirds.

Sorry to say; but, Spec GT is a touring car class with a spec motor and ESC.

Not interested in a touring car class of any type.

Well, I hope someone has the sense to remove their shoe before shooting themselves in the foot.

We could consider most anything in the Midwest...
Will you guys be running for fun the weekend of the 30th or the following weekend? I'll be up in Lake Mills, and may bring my X10 16 with me.

I'm just getting it put together but from the reading up I've done, putting the CRC premounted wheels and tires will cause issues with ride height being way off, and unable to get it down to 5 mm. I'm new to on-road racing so go easy on me, I'm still trying to learn. I want to get better, but I'm afraid of warming out my welcome. I'm fortunate enough to run at a track in TX with amazing guys and gals always willing to turn a wrench, or offer a few ideas to help you get a few tenths.

Would love to get some track time in old Sconnie..... let me know what people may/may not be doing.

The track will not be open on the weekends during summer. We are racing Tuesday and Friday nights. The track will be open Friday Jun 30th and Jully 7th. Track hours are 5pm until we are done racing. You are welcome to stop buy on Fridays, we'll help you as much as we can. Getting ride height down to 5mm is all about shimming the from suspension and the rear pod.

I am not familiar with the X10-16 but does it use inserts for rear ride height? If it does and it is a inch series axle maybe the Associated #4 ride height inserts would work. The would still have to fit the hole but they will bring a rear pod down to 5.5mm without spacers on a car they fit.

Hey MARCCA guys - there is a carpet race in Muscatine, IA the last weekend in July. Practice Friday, OnRoad Saturday, OffRoad Sunday. FB pages for Island Speedway or Star Collectibles for info. GT-R is not a listed class but they would add for at least four in the class. (I will confirm if anyone is interested). USGT will use the Ride/ Gravity tires. One year old CRC black carpet. 3 1/2 hour drive, all four lane highway.

Looks like a nice facility...recognize the Schumacher guys in the pictures.

Had a blast last night and thanks for all the help with the car. I didn't finish last - just the last car to finish. What is better than old friends and RC cars?

slots:

For a guy that hasn't touched an on-road car in how long, you're performance was remarkable in my opinion. We've all been doing this a good long while - your tires aren't even broken in yet!

It'll just get better...
