Nope...sorry to see that. I was running 705...probably 1 of the few Serpent that you can find on that weekend.

Thunderbt....I think Vessell is running Kyosho V1RRRRRRRRRRRR WCE EVO RRRR...kyosho with the brand new OS Speed Spec II engine. Almost 2 hours of running (from C, bump to B and bump to A) and that engine still STUCK at TDC. Not counting SAT qualifier and practices...

Ira is correct, I'm running the Mugen. Doseck and Ira both ran the new Spec II as well. They got it right during qualifying and didn't have to take the scenic route to the A like I did.

Track was fun, the race was fun, thanks to the LH crew and Byron's along with the Sweeney's for all the work to put this race on. I will be back next year for sure.

Default Congrats

Want to congradulate Mike and Aaron for there wins. Want to also say that it was good seeing all the Mugen teamates there. Mikey, Harry, Mark and Jane and cant forget Brad and Chicky. Dont get a chance to see you guys very often but its always a pleasure. Had a great time working the pits with Harry, best pitman in the business............Take care guys and see you soon. Brad let me know when I can get a hold of one of those sway bar adjustment tools, I know Ira will get sick of me borrowing his all the time. Kurt

Thanks to Ira, Nick, Harry, Mike, Jayne, and all the guys at LHR. This was my first big big race and im hooked. I learned many lessons last weekend, like dont step on the white plastic curb haha. Im doing fine now, just a couple scrapes, but getting harry and mike to sign the bad ass body i painted was well worth it.

Good times. Thanks thunderbt3. I'm glad you don't think I was short and rude to you or that I offered you untruthful advice. I'm glad you appreciate me. It's nice to hear something positive for once from someone.
