After a run of processing batteries, all I can say is WOW!!! Out of the hundreds of GP3300 cells I did over the last 5 days like 75% are 1.18+ A lot of high 1.18's and even some low 1.19+ cells as well. I understand that GP recently upped the quality of their cell, but this is crazy!! No complaints here though!!

Hope you all had a good weekend!!!

With all the advancements coming for Surge, it is sure to be an interesting year of racing! I see that you are looking for new team drivers, when will we be able to see the new face of Surge Worldwide?

Looks like we are going to have some mad rip for the Birds. Keep up the great work John. I can see why Gary was happy to bring you on board. Stage 5 packs to be released to the public soon.

No doubt, Brian!! We've been working non-stop around the clock to get things movin!! I've also been assembling my new xray which I intend to pull out of the gates next weekend. My brother is awesome with an airbrush, so I signed him up to start work on an awesome Surge body for me.. Pics to come!!

Oh BTW, I boxed your packs up yesterday, they should be shipping tomorrow. Next time around you'll be able to get Stage6's..

Default HC Carpet State Champs

Well Gary, and John,
just wanted to let you guys know how things went today. TQ'd Stock, and finished 2nd. WHat a rough start, creamed off the grid, and demolished to tength. I caught up to 2nd place by th end. 2 turns away from first. Oh, well, I clearly had the quickest car, but it was a good day. I proved a point, in the mist of X-rays, they dont always win.... Happy enough with TQ from the 1st minute to the end. I complained to the owner of HC, that the grid wasnt spread enough, and he will correct this for the regionals. You guys are going to like the current layout, FAST!....10.5 sec laps... plus 10ft lane in frt of the stand as a buffer, nice. He did a good job on this one.
TTYL.
BTW, Gary I havent been able to get on the forum still....????

Just a little race status for me since Raul started it.

I've TQ'ed and finished first in 4 out of the last 5 Wednesday night club races. Usually by over a lap. I still hold the stock touring track record. Well, at least my car does as I let the local hot shoe drive it and he broke my record with my own car.

I'm moving up to 19t and Mod from now on to race with the more experienced guys and force myself to learn a bit more. I already run 19t from time to time and usually finish in the top 3 when I have my head on strait.

Now I just have to decide if I want to run 19t or Mod at regionals in February.

Maybe Gary will throw together sets of bearings for oval cars now.

BTW Frank, what can you tell me about RCSCREWZ track? Have you ever raced there? What kind of oval turnout do they get? I grew up in Dearborn and my parents still live in Farmington Hills, so it'd be nice to get some racing in when I go to visit them.

Default Track

Well, RCSREWZ was just carpeted recently. I know they haven't held any oval races yet. I haven't seen the carpet yet but I hear that it's not the smoothest track, thats just what I have heard. The track is about an hour from where I live. Im gonna check it out after the birds. I hope that place starts to get an oval crowd, it would be the closest place for me to race.
Whenever your in town just shoot me an e-mail & I'll let ya know where the oval racing is happening. Usually Lansing or Toledo Oh.
