That was the one of the most intense races of the summer, what the camera didn't show when Scooby pulled into the pit...was the quick fuel up and tire change by Juwan Hunter and myself and still managed to keep him in first place...nohting but good times that season!

There are quite a number of fuels in circulation now ... you can add powermaster to the list as well since Xpay started running that stuff it's popped up all over the place like weeds hahah.

Byrons will be easy to get, adn I'll have tornado and Kosmic consistently at the track with me.

Melvin ran the Kosmic this weekend and was blazin fast i think the managed to hold onto tq (challenged by Amador believe it or not).

It's going to be a super competitive season this season there are allot of guys who are going pretty dam fast all of a sudden ahhaah.
Powermaster is good, but only in 30. Also Werks is close to May's blend. Believe it or not Sidewinder is a good fuel too. The Red blend. No need for after run oil, keeps things nice. Just sayin since your talkin fuel.

Yes it was, I have something coming for all you guys/gals that were at that race!

Also Juan Amador was on Tq pace this past weekend at Floyd Bennett field in Brooklyn he's easily as fast as some of the top guys at the track now.

The Blue Diamond is going to be the site of some serious competition this summer!

I'm actually on the way to florida (worlds) right now and once i land and can get in touch with Don i'll answer both questions the start date question and the practice question. However i think they are painting this weekendin.


I will ask lee about the Syndey blend I'm not going to be keeping too many iterations of the fuel on hand, just what people run so if it's Syndey that i need to carry let me know =D. I am running 20% offroad in my flash and will run kosmic in my max power. I think Lee said his fuel was arriving at the warehouse this week.


I will pm you pricing in the morning.

Yep. Tires depends on how long you want to last, and what split you want to run. I ran 35/40 on a mugen, seemed to be pretty good on an average traction day. Maybe 32/37 if bite was lower, or 37/42 if its higher.

Only to DNF/DNS... and then blame Xpay for his loss. - Sounds about right.
