I would be in for a pan car clinic, I can help in the diff building technique... Maybell can vouch for my skillz

Garrett- It's good that you can make 4 races a month, cause the Hangar only has 2-3!

I would run some mod TC if anyone is up for some Foam tire racing Rubber tire mod is like restrictor plate racing, at this point I like the idea of growth and competition in one TC class like the 12th class is seeing. But, I don't have a TC anymore so I can't really comment. All I know is that I can field two pans cars, and offroad car and maybe a little oval this season for the cost of just some ECS shafts

Let me know if your interested so I can have Maybell or Brian order the pivot balls. Alvin
I like the fact that Alvin said "super bro"

Mod touring on rubber tires gives me the same anxiety as watching a vulnerable baby horse stumble around for the first 10 minutes of its life trying to gain footing on wobbly legs. Even when able to walk the baby horse is wobbly as hell stumbling about like a drunk seattle hobo in belltown.
That being said i'll be out next race chirping knack knacks down the straight away...Boosted ORCA Speedo with REVTECH TRINITY HP =

The Panda is visiting west coast flying fields building a market for a new company's product. He will join us soon as the season slows down.

I'm VERY happy to hear the support for Mod TC. I prefer to think of Open/MOD cars as F1 before active suspension and traction control... the Ayrton Senna's era before joining Williams when the cars weren't so stuck.

Jenkins, I can probably scrap up a set of tires for ya !

I'd join in on the mod madness, but I will admit I am not ready. I don't even do the 17.5 class respectfully. So I will bow out until further notice.

But besides that, the CC had discussed only running mod on the weekend dates. I don't recall if that was only in conversation or put into effect. The deep field of stock tc on Wed nights is a good problem to have.
