Yup, took the jump. Tower had $45 off. Been waiting for a few extra parts and too much other stuff going on. And want to play with the nitro pm more so I can at least go as fast as you. But lazy to swap in the small block.

Helped Keevan with some tweaking and seems to go down a little easier. Still got things really slowed down. Didn't know it was that much. Did a 2.50 and 2.53 with not too much driving. Can someone say bracket car?

What did you tweak on Keeven's car to make it better?

The Pop's Memorial Bracket race this weekend turned out great. Weather was hot and a bit of a challenge with the intermittent rain but a lot of the races were real close. There were 19 participants with Lloyd (da bracket master) taking the TQ with his nice looking Traxxas Funny Car. We ended at the semi-finals when rain hit again and the ultimate winners were Bobby, Mark, and Warren (alphabetical order) with the winners drawing numbers for their prizes. It was great that the Dela Pina family could join us and grace us with a few of their real hot rods and an awesome show truck (BIG). And to have Pop's brother(?) driving Pop's car down the track for one last time.
See you racers next month. Hopefully we'll be doing some class races and of course brackets. I think the Traxxas Funny Car racers are ready to start that class (we'll discuss the rules).

Hey Lloyd! Welcome to the forum. I've been working on my FC and trying to get it to run consistently while trying to go faster. Still relatively stock but can't seem to get past that shake zone without slowing it down. I'll probably do some racing at our next outing.

Default July 19th Outing

Hey racers, we should be out there this Sunday. Hopefully it'll be cooler than this past weekend. Hopefully we'll run at least Brackets. See you there!

Hope you fixed your car. We tweaked the tweak, played with radio, and he's faster than me. I could only muster 2.7s and he did a few 2.5s. Boat guys... Need to massage my car more.

Gotta practice my tree skills for DA BRACKET MASTER!

Turned out to be a great day of test and tune and our first Traxxas Funny Car race. 8 entries jumped in with Keevan taking the win over Momi. I participated in a rare race for me to only be taken out in the first round by eventual finalist Momi. I did hit the board while being in front (I'm sure of it). Eugene had a fabulous run with his TFD going a 1.372 at 96mph! Congrats to Eugene! Thanks to all the racers that came out.
