I can race. I'll be there before 5. Racing @ 7, 45 min per round, full program of 3 heats and a main for USGT and WGT-R classes.

Ok looks like racing is one for Friday. Door will open at 3pm so we can move the jumps. If anyone can make it early it would really help. We will take lots of pictures so we can put the track back together again for offroad on Saturday.

I have a head count of 8 racers for this Friday. 10 if Cesar and Blaine can make it. See you guys Friday.

To reiterate last nights WGT-R discussion.

Some of us have found that the 13.5 was too much for our WGT-R cars and for out taste, so we put 17.5s in them. I've personally been fighting my car and lack of rear traction for months and this significantly resolved all major issues and I was able to concentrate on driving. The rhetorical question of "Do you think a 17.5 is the right way to go for this class?" was asked. For those of us who ran the 17.5 and liked it, that is fine. For those who want to run the 13.5, that is fine. The hot lap time was .2 to .4 seconds different. As traction increased, so did the the gap for a hot lap. As no one ran a 13.5 racing the 12 minute main, there was not a valid comparison for consistency. So, if you want to run a 13.5, that is fine. There is not a huge performance gap. I am inclined to believe that the 13.5 will be much harder to run at the end of a long race per my own experience. I'm already making enough unforced errors and don't want an equally unpredictable car. Please draw your own conclusions. I had fun.

Attended the aforementioned FPV event yesterday and... I gotta say, Max does a great job with that whole setup. It was good to see Cesar again, too - and hopefully more of you can check it out too as yet another excuse to race in your multi-functional warehouse space.

In addition to 21.5 UGST I would consider a mod rubber sedan.
