Hi GT1 Guys,
I'm not racing TCS this year and I have 5 new sets of B3 tires, glued on tamiya dish wheels with MuchMore pink inserts. I also have one new unglued set of B3s, 2 sets of Tamiya wheels, 1 set of new unglued A-Type tires, 1 set of much more pink inserts and a set of new A-Type slicks, glued on Tamiya dish wheels with Tamiya blue inserts. Phew!

Anyway, if anyone is interested I'll let everything go for $150 obo (local delivery). It's not like I need them. Shoot me a PM if you're interested.

Thanks,
Jose

I know you guys are all jazzed about the Nats at the end of the month. Sadly, I won't be there this year.

But, I wanted to let you know that the next production run of Red Dot silver can motors is scheduled for the week of August 16th.

We make consistent, reliable horsepower that wins races all over the world available to every driver.

Not voodoo...just science. Straight to you from the Secret Underground Laboratory.

Interested parties should shoot me an an e-mail at [email protected].

My motor gave up the ghost on the last run yesterday...Looks like I'm going to pick up a new motor *digs through workbench drawer, picks up a glob of screws and bolts, peels the metal away to reveal a motor, remove staples, places a big blop of oil on each end, and installs into car.* That'll work for my consistent, reliable horsepower that wins races all over the universe.

But for this one, Max is right and Brandon was not the only one staring. More importantly, Mickey and Brandon work together and are real good buds so they have way too much time to insult each other.

Mickey - you going to make it to the Nats this year ?
Thanks for your support, yeah a slam on Swifty backfired and upset at least two people, but the past is the past.
Just dont want to feud with someone I dont know again.

I understand that's the hot new speed secret for the FF03.
But don't the really fast guys keep an extra staple or two in the can?

The staple helps, but what really makes the motor fast is picking up on-track debris such as screws and body clips. Those are good for at least a tenth or two. However, during a run, if you aimed for a piece and successfully pick it up, look out, that's four tenths right there...


...until it blows up.

You'd fail the tech inspection cuz those extras are not Tamiya kit options, or are they?
Tamiya screws & clips, I guess they are.

Gonna go get some

Dang, that explains why your FF03 was so much faster than me. Here I was trying to miss those body clips.....
