I'm building a 1/7 scale DM-One for the spec class. Any questions on the build let me know.

I should post pictures as I am going through the car. Really interested to see how the longer car works and what changes work with it.

Default Heart of America, last series race

I brought the spec Reds Engine combo and the VP spec tires to show the racers. Received positive feedback on how the class is coming together. Thinking 4 - 6 racers are planning on running the class next year.

Let several racers try the tires on their cars for the qualifiers and grip was good, just required some warm up. Wear was very good, so the tires should last maybe 2/3 weekends.

There was talk about getting out the Kyosho long wheel base cars, and the realistic bodies. So other than having my spec car done, it was a success this weekend.

That is Awesome news Mark!! Glad you got everything in time

The weather done here has not cooperated with us the last 2 weeks. We have had to reschedule the first Winter Series Race twice now

On a positive side, let's guys get their gear in order before the Grand Prix in November.
