Brian and Dave have made it down and will be doing their first practice run in 19t trim here in about 40 minutes or so.

Results should be up here.

Sedan is working awesome. Really hit on something that last run. Brian is about to go try it in a bit. I've parked the sedan for the night. Its time to bring out the 12th scale.

well, first practice is over... with some help from dave (basically his whole setup besides the rear droop), I broke off some fast laps just now in open practice...

some general FYI....

Dave has been up for 24 hours at 3am local time, all on 3hrs of sleep

I've been up for 45 hours straight, as I couldnt fall asleep the night before our flight for my 3 hour nap that it woulda been... well, we are back on the track tomorrow at noon... we'll give more updates tomorrow hopefully, we were working a lot on the cars, which is to be expected... i mean we've only got 5 runs on the cars at this point...

the new crc carpet has bite, a LOT of it....

spektrums are awesome once again

magnet zappers are a bitch at times....

magnet zappers are nice once you figure out how to use a compass...

new tires are NOT a good idea for racing....

more to come tomorrow...

signing off now,

Brian

Well we kinda got behind on stuff but now I think we've got everything figured out. We get one last practice run to know for sure. Our lap times in stock are off but we know now that our cars are way too stuck. We thought that this new carpet had less bite but we really guessed wrong. It doesnt show a groove anywhere near like it did last year but its already for tons more traction then it did last year.

I'm running the CRC T-fource. Its been dialed since I learned that you have to run your tires tiny as you can get. Oh and it was dragging the ground bad in my practice heat so its gonna get faster I know. Sedan is finally working. We nailed it in 19t. Wish we would have done this for stock.
