jrp, I don't know you but thanks for your compliments on the car. I'll admit I had a rough weekend and there were several runs in which I simply wasn't able to put together a better run because I hit one or two too many boards. I do however, disagree with your comment about how many cars I crashed into. Most contact I had with other cars I did not cause. If you watched closely you might've been able to see that.

Both you and Ralph had nasty wrecks in the sweeper, however I think that when Barry's brushless blew up on the straight and Blackstock hit him going 40mph was the most spectacular.

Does anybody have videos of Burch's, Sobottka's, or Baker's crashes, I unfortunately had to work all weekend and did not get to get up to the track to watch or see much on the internet coverage either.

Hopefully someone has vids and can post them soon.

Thanks

Maybe just a lesson for the future...

I thought the best crash was where Sobottka broke his car in the warmup laps of the mod C main .

Weylin-It wasn't my fault. I had the car rolling and it caught a radio hit. Bad luck struck all weekend, I really actually wanted to run the car in the main. I made setup changes and thought it would be a lot better. Guess that just wasn't going to happen. That Truespeed 8X1 finished off the car pretty well lmao. It happens, the show must go on...

Yeah I had my share of radio issues when I broke the filter in my synthesized receiver . And when I got broadsided and the battery knocked all the lights and setup button off my GTX . Guess it wasn't a good week for my electronics... or much of anything actually .
