Hi Guys,

For Lamar and everyone else who asked recently in person or on tech, there will definitely be a layout change for the Grand Prix. The current one has been fast and fun...but next one will be more technical while also addressing the tricky spots...

Here is what we are planning...We are going to run this layout this week...so Wednesday & Saturday. Except to change things up a bit, we are going to run it backwards....I know...crazy.

Also Saturday night, to bring in the layout change we are going to have a little "layout going away party". We are going to get a few party pizza's for everybody.... Also, to show some appreciation to everyone who came out to race on this current layout, we are going to offer a discount on the race fees. The first class will be normal price $15 and if you race a second class its only $5....So race 2 classes for $20.

Right after the race, we'll be pulling up the pipes and John and the boys will get started on the layout change.

We hope to see you all on Wednesday at 5 for WNW and Saturday at 3 for the Showdown!

If the layout is being revamped, then it's all going to come down to moisture content. It looks like they're going to bang out a layout, then attempt to let it set for a week. If that's the case, then full bar, or maybe even a double dee until we get a groove going. Super soft (m4/green) to start, and maybe soft(m3/blue) or even clay (gold) as traction comes up.

lol. we'll see. supposedly, the newer a-arms are thicker, so if they now break, they break where the shock attaches to to the arm. Of course, I didn't hit any pipes real hard last week, so we'll see this week.

last week, I had my castor blocks reversed, putting more pressure on my ball cups on my steering assembly. Kept on popping those at the slightest hit. Fixed it before the main, which the main ended up being my first, relatively clean run. Gotta catch those fast guys tomorrow so that I can start talking smack.

That's what I found too. They snap in the middle instead of at the hinge pins. It happens less often and you really need to stuff it into something to make it break. Sadly breaking at the hinge pin made it very easy to swap out. Not so much when it snaps in the middle.

really? hmmm. I'll have to do some reading on that issue. I don't remember the kyosho arms being like the new hot bodies car with those crazy a-arms? I thought the kyosho arms are similar to the ae arms? I'm probably way off here. why would the kyosho arms be stronger?
