you can run either x patterns or solaris. I have run both. i feel their is no advantage one way or the other. comes down to driving in rcgt.
when we switch to 21.5 motors it will be soooo close

You should just switch to 21.5 now. Why wait?
With 17.5 you might as well be in 17.5 blinky

This class is about fun, and with our high traction surface..both tires have thier advantages/disadvantages, just work your setup around them. We have run both tires in GT before, and it works well.

The 17.5/21.5 thing is to get the class going with something people already have, then we will be all 21.5 next month. We are trying to figure out if we will spec a motor or just run everything open 21.5 blink.

Ohh yeah.. the tire rule is to keep costs down for those that want to keep it cheap.. or let people run the HPI tires if they want the scale look.

Don't forget.... Practice tomorrow night... and club race on Saturday.


It will be an epic battle in 17.5 Blink... who is going to come out on top ? We have so many new players, it could be anyone...

Chris Meloche has to be the favorite, he has been working on the setup of that Xray, who is coming for him next ?
Will the Bear be eating Honey, or get a face full of Bee's ? Larry's car is good, he just has to get some better starts ?
Will Heatshrink bust out of that wrapper ? Keiths Serpent has been good, he has the speed, just needs to have bit better middle/end of his runs.. keep that concentration up !
Billy Nobama Dzama.... just needs more track time, and get better starts also, cuddling up with TJ in the pit's has gotten his car on point...
Will Justin ( my car is dirty ) Reed, keep his car clean through the run ? He has had some flashes of brilliance, just need to keep the snake on point.
Gerry Riccio has been picking up pace, will the addition of another Xray to the stable take his focus of the ball ? Will both the cops choose to pass people instead of pulling them over ?
Denise Burton Clarke has her Xray working well. Will the nerves get to her again ? She has been faster then most in practice... Race days here we come...
Since moving to Tamiya, Mike Clarke has picked up the pace, can he keep that 416 together for the whole run, if so, he will be in the battle.
What about Tino ? Always fast, the new Xray has him knocking on the door. He could challenge from the first heat...
And then there is Andre JamRoc Saunders... never know about that guy... and his cohort ... Mike Applegate....

Wow this is gonna be a great Club race...

Then there are all the unknowns... We have the group of guys from Miami, with their Serpents and Xray's They have been practicing.....

Who else ? ....

Anyone have odds for winning 17.5 blink ?


Next up 13.5 ....

And.. on another note....

WCRC Village Raceway has put in a bid for the ROAR 2013 Electric On Road nationals.

We will be doing some upgrades to the track and facility in the coming months... Hope we get the race !

So any guesses on 13.5 this week ?

Dave Vera has to be the favorite, but who will take him down ?
TJ ? The Xray is always good at our track, but will the lower powered 13.5 take away his crutch :> ?
David Baptiste... the Silent Killer ?
Can Bob Husted pull another one out of his " South of the Border " sombero ?
Is it finally time for Robert to put all that power down.. and get a win ?
Ohh Yeah !!! will Dave Bowser take a win with the Xray ?

Which one of the new peeps will snatch a win from the Snakes Teeth ?

Who knows ?

@2slowtc

I raced at Jackson when it was a dirt oval, then it was paved a few years later as an oval. I have seen pictures of the track as a road course now, it looks great! I look forward to meeting you at Village, it is great group of people.
