Wow!!!!!!!!! LET me guess ...........................Gary must not have been there either, me and Joe B. had bets that Gary would win!!!!!!!

Just kidding.

I'm home now, and pretty dissapointed too.

In stock I qualified 2nd in the F (that sucked) and worse was that the track underwood warped b/c the cold and it was like offroad, and I ended up last in the F (or maybe second too last). In 19t sportsman In the last qual I was on pace to get just barely in the A but (always a but) with three laps to go my rear belt snapped and I still had 25 laps but it was a really slow 25 (I think the slowest 25 lap run) so that put me 6th in the C and it was pretty brutal but I still managed a 4th.

Had lots of fun, and the car handeled great but I struggeled with speed all week. (next year i'm going to run mod so I don't have to worry about that)

Jason I sent you a pm.

He needs to find his set up , like jason said , we dont get to run on the rug all that much , but when he finds it he will be quick. Did someone say BUELL ?????????
It was true hes Pretty quick man. better than I but i did Pretty decent. Only like 3 laps down than the fast people And i had driving problems. Also was my 1st time with a setup on carpet. But i was quicker than any of my pit crew people. I am happy now. I baught like 5 different set of tires and Cyan and Magenta Seem the best for Xray. Until next year.

That is true. I think half the r/c racers in the country where their. They seem to get enough guys that they could split the race into two. An oval weekend and a touring car weekend. Not sure if it would work but I think it could.

Can't wait to run my BMI TC3 again. I still have the ice on my car to keep the swelling down from the beating it took this weekend. I will check it this afternoon and see if it has healed up. I know I broke my bumper brace ( ) but I think without it I would have broken alot more stuff. I'm ordering a new one from Jason when he gets it done.

Jason if it is your right knee maybe you dan't drive the Vette but you can still shift gears on the bike (left foot) and since you don't really need to use the rear brake to stop a bike you could still be out having some fun.

Hi everyone:

not much going on up here.just snow and the flu.......... I hate winter time. I haven;t talked to Jaosn yet this week but plan on calling him today........after we get the water heater replaced... it also blew because of the cold. we got to go swimming last night in our basement.
on the racing front I have the graphite front carpet tower for the Xray. works alot better then the other one.did. I will be sending it to Jason along with the rear ultra tune rear shock tower. also got some 6* "C" hubs to send along for Jason to play with.

do to Mini being sick we didn't go racing this weekend but are planning to go this weekend and run the Xray again.
so far it has been fast enough to make the A main but Mini is still getting used to it so he hasn't put any TQ runs in yet.

Thanks

Hey guys, have you seen this review?

http://www.overrc.com/techniques/reg...mi/tc3bmi1.htm

It's in French, but you can translate it will Google or Babblefish. I personally still found it hard to read! But you can get the idea... And since I've been considering doing my BMI up in black and silver, I was very interested to see these pictures.
