Nope, I've got everything I need right here:

Edit: Probably not right for a family website, but you get the point. If I'd been born with three middle fingers, I'd point the third one at you for that too. :-)

No problem, I know my post was kind of a troll, I deserved it.

I'm no fan of brushed motors, and EddieO gets on my nerves frequently, but the man's motors are the fastest I've ever used. I've got a box full of br00d motors and a sticker of his on my power supply, in spite of everything. Good luck at the 'birds Eddie, you guys deserve the glory.

Are the live results that are showing now actual qualifing or club race? Sure seem to be running late.

It's always interesting to compare the times in 19T between the pro drivers and the fast guys. Like, Jeff Cuffs is one of the fastest laymen around, but are his fastest times really that far off from the pro guys? Is that all driving, or do motors and batteries come into play at that point too?

I mean, the fast non-pro guys get a lot of attention for their accomplishments, and rightfully so. The fact that they're so far off the fast pro guys at the same speeds (19T) gives some perspective on how incredible those pro guys really are. It should also put to rest the "go mod if you win stock" argument.

I agree in stock the fast locals can hang with the big guys, but handling a mod takes perfection in driving for that speed and that is where the pro drivers have that little advantage. Handling the car at the higher rate of speed is much harder.
