another good weekend of Racing........Well......i was mixing it up with BigDog for the first five mins........We had the same pit biotch.....when i came in for fuel he was already buzy......so i got behind at that point.......also that "Dukes of Hazard" jump i made in the back end of the track didnt help either...........ever seen a notro car 3 feet in the air??..LOL!

anyway,we did find out that you cant run more than 5 mins at that track(on foam).....The tires are totally shot at the 5 min mark!!..........

Sounds like a pretty good day of racing. Wish we could have been there.

I raced my Xray 808 2011 spec for the first time (No worries...on-road is it for us) this weekend. The thing was nice. Qual'ed 4th in tha A for a big local race here in KY. The 808 drove more like a touring car....lol. I blew a a clutch bearing at the end of the 30 minute main but at least i got to burn up some nitro. ha

I will bring the 8th scale on road

The 808 and the inner bearing on the RX8 take a 5x12x4 bearing. Not a lot of those in my spare bearing box....ha. I will have to stock up on them I guess.

I turned a lot of wrenches....does that count? Naaaa I was in the B sedan and had some problems but the car was very good. Emily was very quick too but never got a good qual in and got punted in her main. No more sportsman for Emily.
