I know I thanked many representing the One Eighth Racers, but there were many I must thank, personally.

Thanks to Aaron, Paul, Mike McBride, DJ, Scott, and my dad for a great time under the tents! Paul, next time I want to practice half as much as you....LOL

Thanks to my sponsors, Mike Swauger from Mugen USA for a great car and GLC door prizes. Eric Vasutin at Werks Racing for the incredible engine and fuel combination (and GLC door prizes). Robert Morris at KO Propo America for the awesome new 2.4 system that worked perfectly! And of coarse Parma and Paul Ciccarello for countless hours to make the Parma R12 a great handing body! Thanks to Brad Tofflemire and YB Slow Inc on the lightweight drivetrain modifications.

Thanks to my dad for the great pit work, when I pitted you were quick!

Finally thanks to those that came by and acknowledged that the One Eighth Racers has a nice home. That really capped off a great weekend to hear the hard work paid off.

Hope to see everyone next year! Many I will be seeing in a couple months at the MWS race and/or the wedding.

Take care,
Brian Berry

I would like to thank all my sponsors for the top notch equipment that was supplied for this race!

Thanks to Joel Johnson & Kyosho America for a super smooth race car, the Evolva M3 is hands down the best car I have driven. Thanks to Richie Siriano & Brooklyn Hobbies for all of the support. Thanks to Eric Vasutin & Werks Racing for the fastest fuel and motor combo that I have ever had the pleaser of running in my car.Thanks to Rich Brown & Empire Racing for all of the hop up parts especially the rear sway bar. Thanks to Thello Jordon, Gary Elias, Rick Davis, Scott Kimbrow and Jim Atkins for all the help.

I had a faster car than what the records will show, my lap times were consistent but I just had to screw up one lap on every round of qualifying LOL my bust.

I would like to thank the crew from THE ONE EIGTH SCALE RACERS CLUB for putting on a great race. The traction was so good I was traction rolling in the qualifying and main. I will change my setup and I will definatly be back next year!

First I want to thank the Toledo club for a great race-facility. Next I want to my sponsors. Mugen, Parma (the R-12 is awesome), Murnan Modified Motors (Uriah is amazing with HP and fuel milage), and Johns BSR Tires (these tires are amazing). Finally, I want to thank my dad (Jerry) and Mike Pulfer for everything they do! Also, a special thanks to chicky, brian, aaron, ira, mark, jamie, paulie b., filo, ian, conely, and many others! CANT WAIT to get back to 301 for the nats, that place ROCKS!

DJ, the photos for the report(s) are mostly all there.

The collection of chassis photos I still need to complete.

The "gallery" (slide-show) isn't uploaded yet. I'm still editing it. I don't think anyone wants to go through 600 images - I know I'd hate that. I need to cut it down a bit more, maybe to 100 or so, then upload it all. I hope to have this finished by late tonight.

In hindsight I should have taken a photo of your chassis as well, as I was trying to get most of the fast guys. I know I've got several good photos of you out on the track.

Anyway, with a little bit of luck I'll be all caught up by tomorrow. (Want to send me a write-up to go with your photo?)

(If you still don't find it by tomorrow, send me an email at "mikem @ rc-racing.com" and I'll tell you where to find it. I rarely check private messages here or elsewhere, so please use email.)

No problem, I though you posted that the photos were up. Not a big deal. I will try to send you something, as far as a write up. You have a chassis shot of my car with and without the body when you took the photo of the car with the twister pro light rims.

Thanks,

DJ Apolaro
