Wow, it's been slow here...

Anyway, a progress report.

A friend and I trekked 3 hours to the northeast to Springfield, MO to run at RC Race Place. As they're the closest carpet track to us, it seemed like a good place to start preparing for the carpet season.

The track is small - probably 1/2 the size of Trackside in Milwaukee, for those of you familiar with it. The lanes were 4 to 5 feet wide at the widest points I'd say. Not many places to pass.

I finished 2nd in all three qualifiers and finished second in the main. How's THAT for consistency? lol.

As usual, the Fukuyama cells were wonderful. Had to charge for the main at 7 amps, as I miscalculated how much time I had to get ready. Oops! Oh well, the cells were punchy as hell and stayed strong the whole race - a testament to a great product.

Thanks Dan, these cells rock!

Yesterday, I raced in the Mazda Cup put on by OC Circuit at the Mazda Headquarters in Irinve along side the 7Stock event held there. It was an excellent race and we got great exposure for the hobby/sport as there were hundreds of spectators from the car show who filed through to watch us race. Fukuyama driver Don Vickenmulder(sp?) took 2nd in the Pro mod A main. I won the Pro Mod B main after a good battle with Jason Ertracter (sp?) The car was garbage all day until the main. Cells were especially good though. After the main I still had over 800 mah in the pack!

Dan- It was good to see you at the track again.

Who's looking forward to the carpet season?? I know I am! Lets get the talk going again, it's been pretty quiet around here lately.

Thanks again for all your dedication and support for Fukuyama Racing Products!

John, Hope to see you soon at one of the local carpet tracks. I know you've been busy with preparations for the big day. DC Ultra as free racing this weekend if you can make it.

You got it Alvin. I'll be racing again after the big day, Oct 30th. Looking forward to carpet racing. It's always been my favorite type of racing. Fukuyama batteries rock on carpet. The rip, oh my!! Racing 1/12th mod again this winter, hopefully on the BMI 12L4 I was sadened when I had to give up my OMEGA 4 cell packs from last year. They were soooo FAST. I'm looking forward to the new stuff from Dan!

Carpet? What's that stuff? We get to race outdoor year around here.

Actually I do have a little announcement. I was picked up by Schumacher this week to run the MI2.
