I think it was a low spot, where the car dipped down and was airborne as it got past the corner, letting it start the rotation if I was steering, because if I was going straight it didn't matter how much power I was using as the car would track straight. I probably spun out 30 times in that one corner.

Sounds like your car was too stiff on side and/or center spring
Spools need a softer setup

Great event you guys! Way to take a risk on the format. I don't think you could have designed a better way to have run qual points and triples. I was a little exhausted, but hey, it was fun. Really sorry to hear that Paul has left us at such a young age. He was the kind of guy that just seemed to really enjoy racing and the pit chat no matter how he was doing. He'll be missed. And of course, it wouldn't be MHIC without a little snow! The Euro Truck motor raffle was brilliant. Wonder if there is a future pattern for other classes that could be learned from that action??? Art- thanks for doing a motor tech. Tech table- thanks to guys running the table and donating your weekend; you were awesome and consistent. Barry- you were entertaining and hardcore at the same time, nobody got picked on more the Hanulec. MHIC Crew- take a bow, great job.

Now it's time to go fishing....

Default Many thanks

Thanks to all who made long journeys to our race. Lots of hours and lots of racing, what could be better? I want to recognize the Magic City crew from Billings. These guys are first class all the way. Justin Hengelfelt noticed my son Sammy fighting his 13.5 1/12 as it pushed like a dump truck. Justin helped Sam dial in the setup AND gave him a perfectly cut and glued set of tires and what a difference. Samís car looked amazing in the B main (sorry Cheng!!).
JP Poulson blew me away. For those not there, or those racers that missed it, JP won a CRC 1/12 in our raffle. There were two young men that raced alone in the stock 1/12 C main and JP donated the CRC kit to the 2nd place finisher!!! What a class act.
Cant wait till next year...

Just wanted to say I had a great time again as usual. The MHIC crew ran a great race, thanks for the fun. Next year, hopefully i won't get the flu, lol. Even though I was sick i was still able to get 2 of the 3 classes into the show. With the way I felt, I was happy with that. Already looking forward to next year.

Had a great time at my first MHIC! Came equipped with at least one replacement of everything, but ended up braking multiples of things I've never broken in my life. Huge thanks to Kevin Hebert for helping me out so I could make my main! Also a huge thanks to Donny Lia for helping me resolve some of my handling issues!

Will definitely try to attend again next year!
