Hey Sal .... the bottom line you can wheel a car.

I heard stories about the pit crew letting you down, but as you and i both know it can only get better.

This was my first time running a 25min main, then a 45min in 1/8th scale to finish 4th in the A main after the bump up. I had a lot to think about and learned alot during the process. With less than one week with the MRX4-R I'll take 4th place any day, as the competition was stiff.

I would like to also thank Chavo AKA "NitroHead", for introducing me to the best flue I have used thus far..TORNADO FUEL. & it don't take a rocket scientist to figure that out... LOOK OUT THE TORNADO is coming through.

Carlton, thanks for bringing the RC Pro Series to New York City. Rick and Greg are working their butts off trying to get the Floyd Bennett Field track going, and this is the shot in the arm they needed.

When I was there on Saturday the general mood in the pits was screw the BS let's go racing! Everyone was patient with the little bugs with the computer, and everyone was respecting Steve (wish they would do that for a club race). A good race isn't possible without good racers.

The atmosphere at Floyd is changing and the club racing is better. Drivers are becoming more educated and learning what it takes to run a good race program thanks Rick/Greg and the rest of the fanatic race crew. Holding big races like this is good for everyone. Plus many of us are traveling to 301 and learning from them as well. Little by little we are getting on the map!!!!!!

Guys

I just want to say that I had a good time with everyone at the track this last weekend. Rick and Greg ,the whole crew made me feel welcome and listened to the suggestions that were given. All the racers listened and took the right actions to bring their car in line at tech. The racing was great and Ted did his normal great job on the mic. RC Pro is happy to hold races at tracks like this that share our additude about racing. Good luck and good racing.

Steve
