Too bad Albert can't make it. I'll try to stop at his shop for some tires so my wife can grab some bubble-tea while we're in Chinatown. BTW, will 40s be alright for this weekend.
Tommy, we used 35 and 37 last year as dan mention.

yep I used 35 shore and killed them in the main actually and ran out of tire remember ira lol that was a fun race. I also only had a one-way last year this year i'll have diff,one-way, and spool so I should be able to use a harder tire well the softest I have is 38 so that will be the softest I can use.

And you forgot to tell him I bought the T2 and now hanging it on the wall collecting dust.....may be electric on MWS..? Last time I was there, I think there are plenty of 37/38s GQ on the wall..........unless somoene just clean them on up last night. Remember...SAT high 78, Sun high 85.....no chance to rain this weekend...NICE.

That's good, because when I checked the weather this morning, it was supposed to pour on Sun. No replay of Racing, please.

I have not have that much fun on RC racing for a long time...........I had tons of help from those A-main racer that took care of my clutch, engine and 2-speed problem..........then I had helps on suspension setup, my car was totally dialed except.............I am not a good driver. So I ended up running both the 1/8th and 200mm with 2 shocks (broke 2 shocks at 4 and 14 minutes mark) but manage to drive both cars with only 2 shocks and finished both 30 minutes race..........I cannot complaint.

Special thanks to Paul Cicarello for building the clutch, setting up the 2-speed and adjust the needle on my 1/8th....I hope he can run my car for the main for me next time (LOL), Eli Ezrow for adjusting the whole car for me and keep telling me NOT hitting the board while I was race...Steve Lazarus for the Driving/Tire sizing 101 and fine tunning the 2-speed before the main. Dave Barry.....can't say no more, tons of RC related support. Mark Unger for the Serpent parts support and the MWS race. CRCC for the great weekend of racing.....race buddy - Walt, Eric, Joe, Harry and Katz for all the pit work, marshelling and helping...........

Lots of fun...........except, the next Chciago MWS is 12 months away, that is way too long............I almost ran out of my "Seminor" excuse for my wife, what should I tell her for the MENTOR and TOLEDO races?

Oh...almost forgot, thanks everyone that saw me pushed both of my cars to the loop without turning on the transponder..........PRICELESS.

Now...I need to cut down my internet chatting time and actually get back to the RC CAR setup.............OK, may be next year.
