They sure are. And bump-ups always keep you motivated.

Although its hard for me to walk off the stand after even a 20m main.

We all run 1/10th TC. Some run 12th scale though. "teamGP" has a few cars for sale...


I don't have much experience as some of the locals do but I have gotten my lap times down to 11.07 seconds with the current layout on CS27's and using a CO27 motor. "teamGP" was doing 9.00 seconds flat on foams with a 19T back in DEC2006. Rubber on carpet is really fun compared to foams.

Thats a pretty darn good lap time with stock on rubber and not much traction.

Eight A mains in a row, top 5 finishes in the last 2 regionals and 2 wins in the last 3 club races isn't exactly luck.

Come on down and recieve that whoopin you so deserve.

Here's the forecast for the season's roster:

-myself
-Sean H.
-Chris H.
-Nick S.
-Jay S.
-Dave G.
-Matt W.
-Zach ?
-John F.
-Dave C.
-Drew

These people have definitely confirmed with me that they will be there to race. More have promised but you never know if they are serious or not. We all prefer a spec tire like the CS27 and stock motors. Dave G. is running rubbers with a 19T so that class should be open too. Sounds like fun...
