Man, you'd never imagine 8th scale was in decline from that video... Very impressive.

Rcbob, keep it up! We really look forward to your vids when we get back from a MWS event. I hope you got a lot of the carnage at the end of the straight in the C-main 1/8! That was epic . Parts everywhere!

Ha Ha, sorry to keep the memory allive! At least it was QUALITY carnage!
I collected quite a few of the errant parts. Including some large bits of fuel tank(the lid ended up 20' beyond the fence!), knuckle/wheel, dogbone, one-way drive, & assorted plastic bits!

I think your dogbone is in my car darin. Mine popped out in the B, so I just threw one in my pit guy found on the track. Unfortunately we didn't find another bone.

Nice Job Bob, and thanks for showing my run.

Great video's Bob. If anyone gets a chance to run at the Mid-West series races I suggest they do so. I had a lot of fun out there and Bob gave me my 15min of fame along with the good racing. See you in Cinn.

Track condititions (especially traction) were phenominal! Perhaps one of the Toledo club members will elaborate but, the traction compound used was alcahol, castor oil, & mountain dew syrup. I con't know the ratios, but it is the best! Rain did not wash it off either.

somone asked why the castor in another thread. the caster stops the syrup from drying out so it stays tacky all day. I've seen that track so tacky it sounds like your pulling up duct tape when you walk across it.

I think the toledo boys got the secret formula for flypaper somewhere.

The bees weren't attracted to the track those things invaded the trash cans though.

Pretty cool videos thanks for sharing........
However, I think I would be a bit distracted with someone next to me on the driverstand with a video camera.

It tell racers to pretend I'm just another driver on the stand but instead of a radio in my hand I have a camera. For the racers in the MWS and at TSRCAR it's becoming second nature having the camera around, they are not to paying attention to it anymore.
