Yes, Josh Cyrul was last year's 1/8th National Champion (his 2nd). Burch was last year's 200mm sedan National Champion as I mentioned.

25+ = 27 BTW.

I'm not sure when he got his first one, but I know that he won the 1/8th Nationals as far back as 1982 (10th in the 1/8th Worlds in 1981). I think only Joel Johnson has more National Championships, but I could be wrong.

I got what you meant... He wins one every year at least, but I got technical on your post which said he won 1/8. Don't forget 235mm onroad as well... It seems nitro is more of a racing discipline in old as well as young can excell. Electric seems to be dominated more by the younger guys (not too many over 35 win in the mod divisions).

I could be wrong, but it seems the long mains keeps those eager wipper-snappers from finishing. can't... believe... I said... that....


My gut thinks burch will take it.

If anyone has four Assosiated threaded Shocks that they don't want, I need them really bad. Its ironic, because I work at the shop and havn't had time to order them. I am the blond headed kid that is always cleaning the pits and the off-road track.

I am looking forward to meeting you all. Good luck at the race.

P.S Try running 42 in rear and 45 in front for the MTX-3

45 in the rear and 42 in the front for the NTC3. Thats what I have been hearing.

The track has been getting hot. Don't run softer tires if you are sliding!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The driver stand is taken care of with a tarp. For the AC, Blow On Yourself, and the steak, well lets just say that we made the steak into things called Hot Dogs. ENJOY!

Dust, what do you mean? If your sliding, you shouldn't use softer tires? Well then, what are you supposed to do? I had to use 35 shore nitro shoes in order to get the traction I wanted. What do you recommend doing if you don't use softer tires?
A question for anyone else: What tires are better, Nitro shoes, or Ellegi FAST tires?
