Good Job on the 4th spot. You should look at RB Power. Rody (started RB Concepts) Roem, will be holding a test and tune July 23rd and 24th at the RAMS track. This will be a great chance to learn to "tune wit a real expert". There are plenty of RB RC 1005's available in the area - you won't be disappointed they are fast and very durable. Plus, we can help you with pipe/header choices along with head button and "tuning" that is perfect for the RAMS track

See you in two weeks,

Rich,
thanks for the heads up and advice. Just out of curiosity what engines are the factory guys running. Can we even get those? Im looking for an engine for the regionals, want to try and make a serious run at the pro series next year at RAMS, and dream of being a factory racer one day.

Default NitroLover - Motors

Scott Kimbrow, Jim Adkins, Billy Bowerman, Kevin Woods, Brian Bodine and Rick Davis are all using RB's RC1005. These motors are available right now.

Rick Davis and Jim Adkins have motors that have "some additional" work done to them. The other drivers motors are "out-of-the-box".

Interesting note; We have one motor with 7 gallons through and running strong - as a matter of fact - it's Scotties best qualifying motor. We have been running it for a year. Durable!

Rich

Default Steve Perez, Set-ups

Okay, I have revised the look and feel to our posting board. We plan on posting our "Test and Tune info" along with results. Let us know if this is helpful.

Default C. Verano and Steve Perez - Set-up Posted

I posted our Mission College set-up.
A more attactive version will be posted shortly.
I'm, also, having one of my crew create the Set-up sheet in Excel. It will be "downloadable". If you want to send me your set-ups (filled out in the Excel template) I'd be happy to post them at the Empire site. Would make it handy for everyone and readily available. The PDF form is nice, but, dated.

Default Setup sheet

We have created a, downloadable, setup sheet (for the Evolva) done in Excel. It is at the Empire Site in the "tip" section. I have, also, posted what a completed set-up sheet looks like - at the "news" site - Racers Blog. Let me know what you think. It does some cool auto-calculations for final drive rates - courtesy of the mind of Rick Davis

Default Kissimme Set-up

I understand the 2005 is due in a coupla weeks. It will be interesting to see how it gets into circulation. I can post the Florida set-up, but, we have made quite a few changes to the cars since then. Look for the set -up on Tuesday next week.
