to get clean racing yahafta enforce some type of rough driving penalty(It also beats the crap out o the track)
and seed the heats so all the hacks hack each otherthen they see what it's like on the udder end o it
I stopped runnin sc because of the basher mentality involved(hey man it's like short course truck dude)
C'mon Man--oh its wed nite not mon--

rant now over

yeah it is getting time to move back indoors after a fun outdoor season of racing at tnl. It is going to be hard to get used to running stadium truck after running 1/8th scale outside lol. I think it is going to be alot of fun inside this season. Everybody come out and race with us and dont forget to bring your stadium trucks with you.

To ALL who asked, this is what is meant by "TNL Spec"...

Everyone wants to go fast!!! me included, but we tested 4wd mod buggy's last season...everyone of them had an 8.5 or 4600! just too fast to run in traffic especially on hi-grip carpet with open wheels, it's fine on clay but we don't have that upstairs! So 10.5 might make them live longer and keep parts breakage to a lesser factor! plus a 10.5 isn't slow and there 4 wheel drive with an adjustable timing speedo, so it's really not slow...just more controllable. in essence...were racing not bashing and I'm not happy about a broke buggy every race.

...hope this put's meaning to the motor limit.
