Larry ran a Losi 13.5. He ran Express matched 4600s for batteries.

Yes Larry did run a Losi motor. Our motors are still going thru production from our OEM company. So Larry had no Express motors to choose from, also he runs for Losi in the same time..

Regaurding motor, I have been told all motors will be 100% ROAR legal and they are in production at this time. There expected in about 2 weeks. After arrival motors will ship within 48hrs. After we go thru them and go thru our process of preparing them......

Thanks guys.

The race was great. From watching the invites to the track to the program.

It took almost all of the practice runs to get my car where I was comfortable with it. Once I hit the setup it was one of the best cars I have ever driven. Easy to drive enough steering and unlimited rear traction. It was my first big asphalt race and I had to figure out the whole tire management thing. I thought after tqing the first 2 rounds I probably had it locked in. But Kyle was able to no only take the last 2 rounds but also get the extra lap to take tq from me. Nice runs. It's "Tire Tweak"

In the mains I had 2 sets of tires for the mains and started 2nd on the grid. I was able to get by Kyle in the first main only to hit a board that let him and EJ by. A little bad luck for Kyle and good luck for me and I was back in first and puled away.

In the 2nd main I had a iffy start and it got worse from there and I was in 10th before I knew it. I thought about pulling off to save my tires but as I was thinking this I noticed the rest of the field wasnt far ahead of me and really dicing it out. This main was ugly and I was able to work my way back up to 5th.

In the 3rd main Kyle and I got a good start and were off to the races, I got by him about 2 minutes in and won by 5 seconds.

It was a great weekend, the Losi speedo and motors were awesome, and my sticks, holy crap. Best sticks I have ever had.

Ron Schuur from Losi was there to help with my motors and speedos. It was a big help since Im still learning the brushless stuff.

Denny was a big help in getting me to this race and hanging with him is a blast. Thanks buddy. And as always my parents,thanks again.

Cuffs thanks for the inspirational words It helped. And Matt Francis for the pep talk.

Now It looks like if I want to go back (Which I really do) I have to run mod. So maybe a Try at an invite next year.
