Awesome race though.

I get lucky enough to race several awesome mini racers every race day and they push me every single lap, every single race...It paid off! I still think I'm better on carpet though...Anyone going to the Novak race???

On the Nats....I'm trying!! We'll see

I tell you what though...you and Doc should make the trek to Omaha in October. They have a race here http://www.hobbyplexraceway.com/ Oct.24-26....Probably top 5 facility in the US and always awesome mini racing (handout motors) otherwise TCS rules. I know Wes Wood and Derek England have been there.
Core Creations.. i sent you a PM. thanks dude.

So will there be a place to sign up soon or is it going to be a show up and race type of deal?

Might be fun to see who all's showing up and what they're running.

Chirs,

Last weekend there was a couple of guys running the 21.5 brushless. It ran with the black can for the first 3 minutes and when our black cans faded, the 21.5 did not.

yah i figured why burn up black can after black can.. when you can just run a brushless over gear told me he toasted 3 of them last week. no thanks. i rather buy a 21.5 and run that over and over

Hey Brandon,

I have decided to run Mini this year so you better be prepared to step up your concourse game to A+++ status.
