This really sucks. I was supposed to go but had to go to a wedding instead. I really wanted to be there. Hey Woody, I take it that you live near the track. Have any of the Yok or Associated drivers come out yet. I am curious to see how they are running.

I live an hour away but this is our local track. Been racing thier every week since april.

No big drivers from Assoc or Yok has been here yet. We have 2 local Assoc drivers that have been doing real well - Jason Connely and Jacob Delano. Bob VanWagner was here with his Yok a few weeks ago and did real well.

Stupid me - I almost forgot _ Terry Rott - he kicked all of our butts with a NTC3 during the Midwest Series race.

Chris Doseck races here also with his Impulse - doing well also. Rumor is though that he has a new ride starting this week.

Myself not to bad with my NTC3 - usually about 4/5 th in the 1/2 hour "A" mains.

Hey Woody what springs & tires have you been trying. Solid rear axle? I am coming out for the Nats from AZ. I am a Richey sponsoref driver and can't wait to run on that AWESOME track. What gearing have you tried with your Richey motor?

Tires - 40 or 45 fronts and 37 or 40 rears seem good. I have also run Red fronts and Dbl purple rears (TRC). Red fronts are great when the bite is high. This weekend I am changing to the new CRC Track Magnets in the F6 and F5 compound on solid white rims - NOT THE YELLOW SPOKE RIM - The yellow rims are typical carpet rubber - red,dbl purp, plaid and purp. The new white rim tires are Elegi (Tredz) style rubber. Not the same rubber however.

Set-up Yellow front spg, Red rear 80 and 60 wt oil.

Gear - bring em all - different motors require diff gears - Currently on 20/48 and 26/54 but not everyone likes the big split from 1st to 2nd.

Camber and caster to suit your driving style

Going down Sat & Sun this weekend and Sat & sun next week Then MONDAY THRU SAT OOOOOWEEEEE !!!!!!!!

Cool, I will be there on Tuesday. Might be able to get a flight out on Monday night but not sure yet. Wish it wasn't a 4 hour flight away so I could get a little more track time.

Hey guys, since you are on the subject of Tires. There is this place in Hong Kong where I get my Elligi's and Fast Tires. You will pay about $11 or $12 dollars a pair after shipping. Here is the link, check it out and tell me what you think.http://shopping.rcmodel.com.hk/eshopping/default.htm

I just order 10 pairs of tires for $109 with shipping.

It takes a while for you to recieve them, but that is why I order a bunch at a time. I think last time I ordered from there it took about 2.5 weeks to get them, but at that price I can wait. I believe you can choose to have it shipped faster but it is super expensive.

Woody, looks like I will see you at the track sunday. I will keep my eye out for you, you are always keyed in on the fast line.

I ordered 50 pair from them. $448 total shipped. 25 Fast 45 Shore 26mm Front and 25 Fast 40 Shore 30mm rear. I should have them on Thursday since he mailed them last Thursday and he said that it usually takes 6-7 days by air mail.

I live in Centreville. I take it that your screen name is the same as your real name. If so I used to race with a Mike Webb at Hobby Hangar.
