I'm glad you're bringing back the points series. Way back when a lot of guys stayed with it to keep their points position up. It's a lost art.

And the live show is a great idea. Just what time is the show?

Stopped by tonight to hang out a little, and apparently do some marshaling. Talked to Bearthur, Ramil and AJ for a while.

Spec TC looked a little quick during the B and C mains but it was holy shit fast watching the A. 1/12th Spec didnt look overly fast compared to a 13.5 car, pretty comparable.

I will be getting an F1 car and maybe fixing up my USGT car. I am also hoping to see VTA make a comeback because I just really enjoy driving my TC3.

Was good seeing Alex on the mic again, last time I saw him was the JConcepts race in Mass a couple years ago.

I have one of everything. But I have about 5 or 6 guys that want to run VTA and I am sure there may be 1 or 2 there that would want to as well, I know Bagatta has one.

But either way after I get the F1 car I will have a car for every class anyway.

Not bad. The cars ran okay but need to be set up better. I think in the right hands they'd be very competitive. Unfortunately, mine are not the right hands. I need a practice day without racing to run laps and work on them without the pressure of racing or missing a heat. Getting the X-rays ready anyway - just in case!

RACE DAY! WOOHOO!

The 17.5 Xray is now 10.5 spec-ready! (The TC3 is getting some work done to get back in race-condition. She will be back!)

We are so lucky to have a track like 360V2 to look forward to every Wednesday. It doesn't get better than this! See everyone in a little while.

USGT runs the USGT rules that are found on usvintagetransam.com the tires are available at the track, and the motor is any ROAR approved 21.5 motor.

The handout motors are strictly for the Spec TC class.
