Default GERMAN ENGINES

Those engines were being run at the 1/8th scale worlds last fall. No one is copying Eds design at all.

Well, I think TG said it a couple of posts back, this design is a public issue. Nobody is copying. Just happens that Palmaris is the first one to have it on .12 engines. He said the following:

"I always was saying Sirio is fast Next will be ......
This design was in massaging for the last couple of months in different Russian's schools, so probably they got info........"

Ft Myers is a horrable track reg. fuel mileage.

Almost all the fast guys have to make a fuel stop during a 5 min qual., so 6 minutes is amazing

All kinds of weird sh!t

This is one heck of a tough track.

I had a lot of minor things keeping me from finishing a heat, so I'm actually pretty happy with the D-main right now, because I hope to bump up a bit (knocking on wood).

We'll see tomorrow.
My car is handling good and my engine is ballistic (Palmaris berrylium RS3) and I can make run time.

Alfonso is socializing a lot

mean bugger ain't it. Fort Myers is a humbling place but I can tell you you will learn more as a racer after a week than you will learn in a whole season elsewhere. Thats just the way it is. First time I went down there it chewed me up and spit me out. I used more parts in a week than in a whole normal season.

Hey stefan. I'm curious if you have noticed any of my engines there.
May be in these cars

Tommy Lee 200MM outlaw?
Brandon Bischoff NTC3
Tommy Proferio Mugen
And Swager is a wildcard who knows could have Tommys engine in it. Or a hybrid off some parts I built for Robbie C. Or could be a JP. Spose I'll have to quiz proferio after the event.

Give those cars an eyeball for me would ya. I'm curious

Oh yea point of advice, you will notice on main day that if you look at the track at the right angle espacially at the end of the straight away that a tremendous amount of rubber dust accumulates there. It can and will get some guys on the start. chances are your car will be sitting in the marbles when it is put down for the start. an overzealous throttle can get you bad. This is why this track is a bugger because any line outside of the groove will have rubber dust or marbles. i don't know how bad it will be but when they did a fresh reseal of the track in 2002 it had sand particles in it and the tire wear was off the map and so was the dust. This is where that mean push comes from around the sweeper also if you get off the line.
good luck tomorrow and have fun.
