No sweat Grant, this whole series really is fun. My driving has gone down hill over the past couple of years but it hasn't blunted my enthusiasm to support the series. Just bring a wholesome spirit and nothing will deflect you from the intent of the folks who started this whole shooting match, Darren Shank and Big Ron Smith....................

Default Xray T3 for sale

FYI - I'm selling my Xray T3 EU spec. Wanted to let the local on-road guys know. I've only raced it once (at Nor-Cal Hobbies) and have probably run about 30 practice laps on it. A friend gave me a TA05v2 and I'm going to start out with it and spend the T3 money on some other stuff that I want.

$325 + free shipping in the US. Local buyers can pick it up in person if you'd rather.

Details here.

I'll be +1 for WGT and Mod. Despite a desire to get at it with a 1/12 the WGT class could use some love, plus I've already got the car built.

Nice one there... Think what you want but its still a voodoo'ish type of class... Compound, Size of tires, How much CA, How much should I round the corners...

It all adds up. Even I scratch my head!

But when you do have all the stars lined up just right there DIALED!

Ok ok... Before people start laying into me about 12th its not as bad as I make it sound (or maybe it is!). There are quit a few people to ask if you need set up help. There was a learning curve to it just like every thing... So pick what YOU want to run and go for it!

But don't give me the chance to tell you that I told you so!

Default Loaner Program

If anyone wants to check it out, the Loaner Program is now on the website:

http://seattlercracers.com/loaner-program/

Let's take advantage of this program and get some friends, family members, little brothers, older cousins, neighbor's niece, girlfriend's nephew...whoever! out to the track.

This really makes it easy. The cars are slow, tough, easy and fun to drive, and everything's included so it shouldn't be a huge job to help them through the night.
