As to the full sized roundy Round cars, let me know and I'm in. I've gone twice this year and always have a great time. So let me know what dates and I'll find out what the program is that evening.

Darkside - you in for some full size racing???
Sure, I'll bring the dirt oval ride to the track today.

Well I think I solved the problem I was having where the car gets loose in the mains...It wasn't a track temp issue as I thought since no one else was having the same issue. It seems to have been a ride height issue. After 2 rounds of qualifying I was getting just enough tire wear to lower the car too much and it would get loose. Yesterday's race I had several sets of tires I was trying out so none got much wear on them and in the mains the car was handling great! If it wasn't for a persistant radio issue with the Spektrum I would have done even better but I did finish in 2nd I've pretty much had it with Spektrum now (at least in my 1/12th) and plan on getting a Futaba FASST system. I will probably be replacing out the ESC at the same time as my Q2 has just about had it.

I qualified 6th in the "A" last weekend at the Sedan Challenge with the MX2. The traction was really high. I had to keep making changes. I couldn't get the car as fast as I was the weekend before. I clipped the barrier and it through me to the wall and broke my shock in the main. MX2 was awesome as always. I will get them next time. I will be trying the JACO tires.

Sorry for the delay guys, but I'd like to give a shout out to Bill Dolch and Steve Walter for both having impressive showings with their Mx2's in the A-main of last weekend's Sedan Challenge. I wish that I could have been there. Nice job guys!
