Did St.Charles or WC do any kind of inspections? Iíve read of places doing it. But I have not yet raced outside of the Sidewinderz group.

Looks very composed. Thanks for the video.

If we where any closer together, I'd say come run with us. We are a bit rough around the edges, but damn do we have a good time. Lol

When there is a 4-Tec involved, there's always fun being had!

LapMonitor makes being nerdish easier. These are the lap counts, best and average for the layout. USGT, Sweeps?, stocks, Protoform and Hpi tires. Bottom right I believe are with Hpi tires. But can’t be 100 percent sure.

Great info. If I could trust my crew not to crash INTO the lap counter, we'd have one. A couple of them are.. well... They aren't very good. They suck. We call the one guy Cole Trickle for a reason.

I want you to go and hit the pace carĒ.

couple cement blocks would prevent any one hitting the timer.

We've been using car tires as corner markers with boat rope tied between them.. He still hits them. Brick or some kind of hard block is a good idea though.

And yes... He will/has hit the pace car. Many times. Going the wrong direction.

Oh boy. One of those. There is RC demolition derby......


We used bricks at the corners. Touring cars would still move them.

I removed the rear dog bones to run a FWD drag car and it was consistently straight, but on 2S was pretty sluggish. Must be too heavy

Yeah I figured so. It was just for our last set of drag races yesterday since it's getting too cold out and my real drag car isn't finished yet.
