Yeah true also. I agree the new cars keep guys running and purchasing new stuff. It is tiring sometimes trying to keep up. I should know better after all these years but I sometimes feel like I need to buy the newest car to keep up even though in my mind I know this not to be true. Oh well part of the game. Still lots of fun. Run any car you want but have fun.

I think Craig Xavier ran the JRXS in stock configuration and was in the A in stock and I think middle of the B in 19T. I know the few times I saw him on carpet he ran the standard car and was really dialed in with it.

MDoc, "wadded panties" LOL, none here, just enjoying the hypocrisy in some of the posts. Alot from racers trying to prove they bought the best car and hoping some other driver can prove it rather then doing it themselves. All funny stuff to me, I don't presently own stock in any R/C company.

If your interested, see the signature for a list of my loyalty.

Apparently there is a '06 Xray coming. Did anybody see or hear of one running at this race ?

Brant-I ran your PookT bars on my JRXS. My car was super-silly-stupid dialed. I let it down every run by tapping away 4 to 7 seconds a run....I SUCK!! but the car was awesome!!

1.67 seconds apart after 8 minutes. Looks like the Checkpoint stuff is not that far off.

Another young gun on the rise is Mike Haynes from Surge. Kevin and Mike did a great job this weekend competing among the best in the country. I salute both of you for keeping your cool under extreme pressure.

Good Luck with your Racing Programs!!

Team Putnam Propulson's Jeff Dayger Wins the US Indoor Champs in Cleveland!!!

Starting from 8th on the grid, Jeff Dayger put in one of the most incredible drives I've ever witnessed. After qualifying deep in 8th, Jeff looked to his team mates at Corrally for some chassis help. He felt his car was off a bit, and after a major overhaul and rebuilding from the ground up by Chris Tossolini and Rob Michaels, he set down an entirely new animal for for the main...but his work was cut out for him.
After clearing the 2nd thru 7th palce cars, he had to run down TQ Jeff Cuffs who had stretched out about a full straightaway lead. In an incredible driving display, he was able to do just that, and pass him for the lead with about a minute remaining. It was an awesome dog fight for about 3 laps between Cuffs and Dayger before Dayger was able to pass him and get away for his first US Indoor Champs Title in Touring Stock.

Congrats to Jeff Dayger on an awesome job! I gotta thank Chris Tossolini, Rob Michaels,Mo Denton, Jeff Cuffs and the rest of Team Corrally for helping Dayger get his car sorted out for one of the most exciting victories I've witnessed.

Now, I'll apologize in advance for the info-mercial. I used our latest release, Putnam Propulsion #EFB-190-C brush combination, in conjunction with our yet to be released comm drops in Jeff's Touring Car handout motor as well as in Mo Denton's handout motor. Mo qualified 4th and finished 9th, and was a huge asset as well. Thanks again guys!!!

Congratulations to all the winners, it was a tight field and even tighter racing.
Oh, and a HUGE Thankyou to Jim Hermann for catching Jeff Dayger's radio after he threw it in his post-race celebration!!!

I never said that Checkpoint teardowns aren't competitive. In fact it's a great teardown.

Isn't it funny that all the teardowns need to be rewound by other shops to be competitive? Brood, Putnam, Custom works....etc....
