Brian Thomas started the 1/8TH scale main on 73 rears and lost about 4.5mm in 20 minutes plus the warm up and he drove the car hard.

BTW you looked good with the Shepherd car BTZ. (You looked good in sedan and GT too)

The track was great this past weekend, new layout, spayed with MMR traction compound. And the prep has really changed the tyre wear. 4.5mm/20min for 1/8 and even less for 1/10.

Everything was removed when we prepped, I think if we now buildup a new layer of rubber by spraying, the wear will go down even further. Thanks to the guys that stayed out there Friday till 2:00am working the asphalt. Also special thanks to RC World, V-Speed, and Contrast Racing. They presented us with a sponsor check to help with the costs of the TFT awards. Now we can award trophies 1st - 10th in the "A" mains!!.

RC World will be covering the event and we will also have video coverage,

Here's an entry update 11/24/2008. Don't forget that R/C superbike is also invited to the TFT!!

Since we now have a bigger budget for the race, all of the "A" mains will have awards 1st - 10th. We would like to again thank all of our sponsors for the event. these are the confirmed

Associated
Novarossi USA
Serpent America
YB Slow
Upgrade RC
Redline Racing Fuels
Beltran Racing
RC World
V-Speed
Contrast
OFNA

We would like to order the awards according to entries to avoid having too few or too many. Please get that info to me by entry form, e-mail or PM. You can pay your entry fee and drop off your toy when you check in with Sherrie at the race Saturday Morning.
