Default POOH RACES ELECTRIC! ???

For those of you who know Pooh White, I caught his a$$ racing 1/12th stock electric this past weekend. Got pics too. And for those who don't know him, he has always a strong advocate AGAINST electric racing for as long as I've know him. Quoting Pooh: "It's too slow and boring." WTF? Let the flaming begin...

Too cold up there? hehe. Just kidding with you. 1/12 mod is actually pretty cool. I did it one year.

It's always good to catch someone doing something they say would never do right in the act don't know the guy but it is still funny to me.I started in electric it's a lot of fun but nitro is better.

I think he made the B-main in 1/12th scale stock...South Shore Hobby has not posted the results yet and I had to leave right after my touring main. Not bad for someone who hates electric and has "nitro finger." Should have seen him blipping the throttle in the corners...

Steve:

You should see Harry and Scott Bell racing 1/12th scale. Harry is hooked. I was in the pits with Harry and asked him if he brought his fuel gun . Damn, I even called him in from practice just to lean out his 1/12 scale . He came in; and he was out less than .5 seconds .

The results will be posted when Mike gets back from the Novak race.
