Low 19 second laps Jeremy that damn fast for this time of the year are you saying that you are faster than the like of Al and Jeff and Michael Kerr??? cause they are only ably to do that sort of lap time on a RACE day not considering a week day when the track is less grippy and dusty. Or are you talking short track cause I would believe that one! I hope you will be there on Sunday cause I'm sure a few of us would love to see this huge speed that you have now gained!!

sounds like that was what you were saying.....

How did you time your mid-week laps? Did you get the computer put on?

with a stop watch, but that wasnt exactly acurate, but i cant do these lap times with my vone rr , only with my ntc3, but mind you they werent always mid 19sec that was only one or to i could do! i wish the kyosho was that light and shaft drive for the straight line speed. i only drive my rr on race days tc3 for hacking around!

Yes it would seem that you are a lot faster with the TC3 so why dont you use it on race day? I would say you must be giving yourself a margin of error of around 1.5seconds??

they are impressive times for a dusty, dirty, slippery mid-week track.

i'm hoping that this is not 195 degrees celcius because your motor won't last long at that sort of temperature.
