It was ran dry for the mains they just watered the fluff on the edges and the track grooved up and rutted up great for me that makes good racing instead of 1 guy pulling away and lapping the entire field. Mistakes are made you cant relax racing happens it was awesome. Ravers have become to comfortable with smooth high bite tracks and have forgotten what rough is. Well done to the winners of all the classes I was looking forward to a good old School Deganit Saxton Kortz battle in 40+ but it never happened old school track with oldschool racers .

That is true on the rough track, where mistakes happen. Seeing Tessmann, Mayfield, Lutz make mistakes the same I do every single lap (granted theirs is every 10 laps or so) made me feel ok.

If Tessmann made less mistakes, he would have checked out by far.

Default Great Racing!

Never allowed a guy to check out. Lutz and Tebo drove incredible for their wins. The Nitro buggy main was epic.

Those pipes were killer. Catch them and lose massive time...

he made a bad choice on his setup or tires because he struggled for traction. The X-rays looked good.. most teams have a 1/2 man show, but they got 4 fast guys stepping up. Mark Sousa always been fast but has bad luck with dnf’s. Now we gotta worry about CJ too lol, another contender

good as in character? Yes for sure. Never been a fan of xray cars but they have one of the best teams in the pro class.

I think Tebo is the only Kyosho in the pro class. What in the hell happened to their team?

he looked pretty dialed, the top 3 all did, but this track was the great equalizer. It really reached out and bit them.

Xray cars are like the AE and Mugen.. Hell, the arms fit all three.. But , Gord makes the Xray team for setups. Going fast is about knowing stuff and working hard. He does , Both..

The Xray cars have a narrow rear hing pin width and long rear a-arms, the AE and Mugen have the wide rear hinge pin width with shorter rear a-arms...
