Thad...good one... do keep us posted though...and I will catch you under the HPI banner.

Barry...thank you. You are a true pro...

Dust...thanks for the...Dirt. I think you left out Robbie from Mugen. FYI ...Pepe...is an incredible driver sponsored by a bunch of manu. including O'donnel. Keep up the good work. BTW...fixing NTC3's huh??? now that's job security!!! J/K Barry!!!

Lastly...there is...one privateer that has a chance of making the A in this incredible field of drivers. He knows this track!!! I won't jinx him though... so... we will seee!!

wow. I just made a .12 AE engine blow up. I did some dremel work on it and took it for a spin. It did not survive the spin. I have been waiting to buy an engine for quite some time now. I trying to get the Mr-12 or a some thing no one has. any questions about the race just ask.

P.S This past Sunday as i did my work on the Off- Road track, i got hit 3 times by 1/8 buggies, and fell two times resulting with me having a face full of dirt. I looked liked the Swamp Thing.

See you guys at the races.

Swamp Thing: you are a brave man, not only for watering the offroad track (maybe Dana should get an armored suit for you), but for self dremeling your motor! Glad you got your job, bud!

Jonathan: my setup is way out right now, don't ask about it! I would ask the Rocket, Robbie C, or Leo V.

Hi,
I've got a question for any of the pros, primarily Mr. Baker. Do you guys EVER slow down the throttle or steering servos, or use any of the exponential stuff on the M8 radio? Do you ever use the dual rate feature? Just curious. I'll be suporting the NTC3's at the nats.
Thanks!

Kev... it's cool bro... I'm sure you'll work it out..

AMG... Josh has been kicking ass and taking names lately with that new sedan... and you are right...he is due for a big win.

Roger...Swauger definately can take it all. Truth is.... at this level there are a handful of drivers that can all win. It just comes down to who can get the most out of their cars at the right moment... easier said than done of course. With that said... you gotta like Josh's chances. I believe he is teaming up with none other than his father... (in the pits) ...on the other hand, Serpent probably has the best overall team. It really is a tough call... I can't wait till it all unfolds and a Champ is crowned.

Leo... PM me bro..

Speedy, I use expo every once in a while when the bite is very high...other than that I usually leave it at 0...the question on Dual Rate I normally am at full throw all the time but I do know that Mark Pavidas turns his dual rate down or up to turn his car sometimes..

See ya at the races,

Barry

Racers are using a variety of engines here at the track. Some are Top, RB, Mr-12's, Mt-12's, Pico, Solid Nova Rossi's, and Nova Mega's.

I am looking to see who is going to run the NS12.

Everybody who can get one! Team Mugen has JP NS12's allready. I know myself and Tennesse will be running Richey NS12's.

Barry, I know it's company politics and about market shares, but I still think it absolutely stinks that they send you out of the country during the nats.
I don't wanna sound like brown nosing here, but in my book, you are the single one person that brought the elec. TC3 back on the map and also developed the NTC3 into a winning car.
Oh well, at least you gonna get great food in Europe.

I'm looking forward to see you at Fernando's in August and maybe we should go go-kart racing again....
