Hi guys

I ran my 720 and 960 at the Silverbowl in Vegas this past saturday on the new
surface. This was my first time driving 720 and the car was great with the stock
set up. After running a few tanks I started to make small changes and the car
got better and better. I don't get a chance to run sedan very often but this car
will make it alot easier to run more than 1 class.

It will be fun. Also the new surface had good grip with only sugar water. Tire
wear was higher than normal but will go down in time.

Don't get all sensitive! You got it all wrong... I asked for them because they hardly come. Randy in particular. I don't wonder about you because you're always here. considered local bro'.

so how about getting your [email protected](k a$$ to the hobby shop and buying yourself a 720 before the race at Revelation . The shipment is in and they're flying out of Florida. It'd be just like them old "Mong-quack-quack" days.
