TC3 was by far the fastest car on the track. Sean hit a 12.5 and I hit a 12.3 on a track that averaged 12.9 lap times....it was awesome. KILLER traction, and WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYY big layout. We were running 8x2's overgeared about 4 teeth....BIG HP BABY!!!!

I took first, Sean second, and new team driver Mike Kennedy took third.

Chris Krien won Sportsman Mod (TC3)
Brent Thielke won Expert Mod (TC3)
I think a TC3 won Expert Stock also, but not Sportsman Stock.
And Anton smoked them in 1/10 Pan Car.

Fun weekend....LONG, but fun.

Tony -

Thanks to you and Sean for putting on the guided missile clinic at the nats. Congrats on the win too!! Too bad Sean welded the driveshaft to the battery in the A3 main!!! Would have been a good fight!!

Thanks to all of the Vegas group for running the race and preparing the track...but I could have gone without burning up 3 sets of 138G's and 1 set of sorex's!!! Just the same, I will take the 2nd in Sports Mod - the Losi was stuck!!! Now if only I could keep my head out of my a_s for a full 5 minutes, then maybe I could have given Chris a better run - oh yeah - that stinkin dot in the first 180 in the infield, I have a couple of good places in mind for it to go!!!

Once again - fun weekend,

Chris Wilde

Tony, Thanks again for you and Sean coming. Thanks for all of the help and info even though we didn't have the same car brand. Just wish we would have gottin things figured out sooner. Maybe we could have broken up the AE domination. It was still fun. Give us a couple of weeks to recoupe and we will come down and play in your back yard.
