I wish my job had different hours so I could run so races with you guys.

I am wandering why do some people not what gas to run with there electric cars at the royal palm track? I thought the set up favored electric cars. Remeber I am a rookie so please take that into consideration with this question.

Nitro is usually faster even though the track is technical, does favor the electrics somewhat. I run a 13.5 now, so my speed and power is nowhere near a nitro car. It seems at times the nitro guys (I ran em too) can keep fueling up and going at times its 2:1, or even 3:1 nitro cars going to 1 electric. Its not bad, usually when 1 electric guy goes out somemore will follow, and eventually through ESP the switch off occurs till the batts run dry.

Hey Tim,

We raced last weekend, this weekend is an off one. If you would like to practice, gimie a shout...

We will be racing the 14th and the 28th for July. As always we will have a prepped track on Wed.

BTW, most of us will be down at FnF on the the 7th.... Look like it will be a great race.

We will also have a track day soon.... new layout and work on the drivers stand....

I am sorry I missed last Saturday, prior plans (jetskiing in lake placid).

I would like to practice this Saturday or Sunday, but if no one else (Electric Touring) is going, I will skip it, I do have to work in the a.m. anyway.

I will be running at the FnF Race on the 7th and your race on the 28th.

I think we will setup a grid for the 19t race on the inside chute going into the carousel.... This should help the starts be alittle more clean... at least more peel free....
