We built a GenXL in 50 minutes, just in time for Patrick Moorehead's practice at LV. Just ask him! Doubt we'll grant that tonight though.

I couldn't make it to the pan car clinic , but apparently there was an impostor ?

If I had been there, I would have been thankful to Brian B., Mike D. for the significant insight and Todd's interludes of wizardry of the the finnicky little buggers that are 1/12th scale. Mystery solved, they are finnicky little buggers but can be solved. Kody, well , he didn't do jack $h1t and used up nearly half of my double stick tape.... so Kody, you can go stick it ! just a joke.... easy Panda... easy now....

But I wasn't there, so this is all third hand info.

Super bad-ass of Brian, Mike, and Todd for setting the pan car clinic up and running a great class. Easy to say for me, because I just sat there and listened, but I think we could use these clinics 2-3 times per season. Maybe one for pan cars, one for tc's, and one mixed tuning/wrenching clinic before the ECC. I'm excited to try some of the new knowledge gained! Thanks guys!

First, thank you to Brian Bodine and Mike DuTemple for teaching the seminar. You are both very knowledgeable, you kept the subject pushing along, but you handled tangents and sidebars as necessary. Three solid hours of instruction and discussion, and you held everyone's attention the whole time.

Fantastic!

Second, thank you to all of the guys who turned out for schoolwork on a worknight. The seminar was very well attended and I can't emphasize enough how encouraging that kind of enthusiasm is. It is truly the best thing.

Third, Kody was quiet, but I have a feeling that there is one attendee grateful for the masterful wiring job his 12R5 is now sporting. It may sound goofy, but no one wires a car like the Panda.

Now, it's on to the Timezone GP for several of us. Let's put it on the track!

A couple Q's for the TZGP....

What variety of tires to bring for 1/12?

Can tires used with Jack be reconditioned for use with Paragon?

Glad everyone had a good time. 3 hours flew by and it felt like we were rushing to cover stuff at the end. We might have to consider a follow up class later in the season with more of a question and answer session. In the mean time feel free to hit any of us up for advice or info.

A good cleaning and a run or two with Paragon and the tires will be fine.

No fear.


Does anyone feel like the 12th B Main at the Hanger is going to be hard to get into on the 13th?

Bill; I am planning on using all CRC tires. For 13.5 I will be looking at yellow, greylow, pink rears, and magenta & black fronts. If I had to narrow that down further; greylow-magenta.
