5x10x4 Yes I have what you need. If its an older TC6 not 6.1/worlds then it uses the old 6x10x4 that I just gave away last week to Matt...

Scale Spec rules only say 1/10 electric chassis. F103GT has been allowed in years past, and should be good to go this year, too, if you meet the weight, tire, body, etc rules.

Yesterday's last round (Mod 1/12th A Main) finished at about 1:30. The track was stowed and the doors locked at about 2:15.


On another note, I've been thinking to myself, "I wonder how fast my cars are going?"

So, I pulled my touring car ESC's max-rpm from last nights' mains and converted the value to miles per hour. While perhaps not totally exact figures (e.g. if the wheels were spinning) but probably in the ballpark:
--- Stock Touring: max speed 32 mph
--- Mod Touring: max speed 43 mph

I didn't really know what to expect before I did the math but these little cars are a lot faster than I thought they were!!!

Default no video

Sorry guys, no video from last night. My Go Pro camera decided to flake out on me.

On a somewhat related note...
Alex was able to record my mod TC run with my camera phone so I was able to watch it today. I only mention it because I think its so valuable to see this stuff after the fact. I was guilty of thinking people got in my way a little and causing me to crash but on further review... it was all my fault !

Its way too easy to misinterpret stuff while on the drivers stand when adrenaline is pumping and in aggressive/competitive race mode. I guess what I'm trying to say, is, staying cool on the stand is important. There really is no excuse for having a hissy fit up there when so many people are affected and ( at least for me ) my judgement is impaired. I know I've been guilty in the past of over reacting vocally on the stand but I've learned to keep it cool as best I can. Thankfully, last night due to past mistakes of judgement, I didn't react and just kept driving as though nothing had happened. As it turns out, nothing had happened that wasn't my own doing.

Being able to watch the video has helped curb that for me, so I'm sorry I wasn't able to record the mains this time. Hopefully I'll get it figured out or repaired soon.

I do owe Wes an apology, I saw him donkey flip in the middle of the track and I jokingly said get off the track, he thought it was someone else and actually pulled over lol.. He wasn't please when I told him it was me, still kinda funny, but still sorry

Had a blast last night. Bill Swaedner and i went to toe to toe for 16 minutes straight, the entire second qual and b main we were never more than a second apart. We both put some great moves on each other, clean the whole way. There was some incidental contact during the b main that i thought was nothing, bill came up to me later and said he felt bad over the contact, and offered me his bump up position into the A main! I said don't sweat it, just hard racing. Racing like tonight is why I do this
