Saying that Capricorn dominated qualifiers, by qualifying 1st (TQ), 3rd and 4th place.

And that they had a 1st place and 3rd place podium...

But yeah, when you read it fast, it can get confusing.
I guess White people can't read

You guys are too much. Peter, you did great in the final. It was cool to hang out with everyone this weekend.

As for the 1/8 scale, Capricorn is working hard to try and get a least one car so I can test it at the Pre-Worlds. Hopefully that happens. If not for sure in January I will start testing the new 1/8 scale.

I ran the kit stock, but with the upgrade pulleys, softer rear springs and a spool.

Just to let racers know I will be on the forum to help out anyway I can. For those that do not know me I typically answer pretty quick, unless I am at a race. Hope to help the fellow Capricorn guys and look forward to racing the new cars. This weekend was a good start!!!

Later,

DJ Apolaro

Congrats on the new Ride. Just goes to show you can win with whatever you drive.

But a Lab makes it just a bit easier.

No, not yet in Europe we don't have a lot of tight technical tracks.

This is the most technical track in The Netherlands:



But I think compared to most US style tracks this would be considered pretty open.

But one of the main differences compared to the NT1 is the direct and precise steering response, the Lab makes it a breeze to hit the apex just perfect lap after lap.
So I think it will work very well on a tight track.

yeah, i think if you cut off the back straight half way and connected it there that would be an average us track.

Yep, that's what I thought so. For European standards this is very tight, I pretty much hate this track.

Maybe DJ can comment more about US style tracks, welcome to the team btw DJ.

Hey guys, about the brake pads, which side goes to the disc, the rougher ones, I am guessing, right? Glue the softer side to the metal pads?

I am not asking DJ, he is fast with a matchbox car lol.

how are the brakes? and if you still have an NT1 could you tell me if the brake pads would cross over too?
