You know it is like 50 degrees in Toledo today and that means shorts weather for this time of year. Kind of wondered where all the cold air and snow went, but appearently it is being used to freeze over _ell.

Yes, it will be good to see Don at the track and putting added pressure on Becker is another plus.

Don knows that there hasen't been any "class" in the masters since he quit racing.
He's coming back to ensure it stays that way!

I am so looking forward to this.

I will have my form in before the weekends over. Always wanted to make the trip to FT Myers to race.

I am part of the Toledo Crew though I am just returning to race with them after a small break away from Racing.

It is a race put on by our club not the Roar Management Team. All they have listed is the Worlds, Regionals and Nationals. The "Other Races" section is empty. Not sure who we contact at ROAR to get this added to that page.

Default I Got the Bug!!!

Got the bug again! I'm an old timer who ran 1/8th on-road when that's all there was to race! I was a charter member of the One-Eighth Racers, co-director of the MidWest Series for a number of years with Roy Moody, and ROAR Region 3 (old) Director. I was never very fast but I had a lot of fun and met a lot of great people!

After moving to SC in '89, I ran 1/8th in the 1990's with Dixie Racers in ATL. but for the last 10+ years only 1/10 oval, TC, and some off-road.

I got the bug to run 1/8th scale (even tho I know they are too fast for me!!!!) and am heading down to Ft. Meyers for my third WinterNats (1977, 1986, and 2011!) with one of my old buddies from Toledo, Lon Burling, his son and another guy I haven't met yet!!!.

I have a couple of 2005/2007ish Evolvas and an RB Classico 10. (Lost my job, so I have time to race but not money for new stuff!!) I would like some tire and set-up info for Ft. Meyers including gear ratios, Tire diameter splits, and any other valuable info!

Thanks and see ya at the track!!

Thanks,
If you click on the map_motel tab you will see it.

Didn't get a deal from Best Western Waterfront.

FYI, they closed the Seafood place at the Best Western.

Thanks Jim. I imagine my Kyosho should be close.

If anbody has any specifics for a pre-M3 Evolva please let me know, springs, shock oil, droop?, ride height, etc.

This is going to be interesting!!

Are you running a MRX 4 or a 5?

Also Might you or anyone else know if there will be parts and tires at the track?

Just wondering.

Thanks
