Hello, although I'm not an Action guy I can sympathize to the feelings of people against fetting their boards especially in the 70T / 80T class. We had the same situation over at the track I race and it became frustrating to a point where most and many people just stopped running 70T altogether; the class was altogether scrapped. No matter how much a person will say it's about driving skill and avoiding accidents, a person with a "faster" 70T motor will still be at an advantage compared to a decent driver using a stock board. Given the same gearing, batteries, set-up and skill, if having a fetted board gives an advantage by a hair's difference that my friend is considered unfair and is ground for being called a cheater.

It all comes down to an individuals' integrity even when it comes down to racing 1/1 to 1/27 scale cars. How far will you go with your principles to win is the measure of the person you are.

You cant stop it, some guys want to run as fast as possible and that's their choice. Some motors even require it. And like someone said, policing it is just too hard to do.

We are not calling anyone out here as a cheater because house rules do not have anything against upgrading fets but like Potter said, Some guys are just gonna swear for the rest of their lives that they got a "good motor" which i don't understand because like i said it's not cheating.

I like the Narrow class better than wide and dont mind getting beat straight up by a better driver

I definitely feel that fets do give a slight advantage even with a 70t car... I have never driven an 80t, so I cannot really comment. More than fets, the difference will be battery sorting/treatment/charging, and the motor that is being used.

Every little thing makes a difference. Any additional resistance matters. You can go from being in contention for a win or finish 5th because the gear mesh is a fraction of a millameter too tight.

I personally have one fetted car, which was originally done for Pro 70t classes at events. I ran it at Action with 70t for wide to set it up for the PNWC. I ran this car in the wide class with a PN 39t. My Pan car has no fets (was actually my first ASF MR02 that I purchased at Action as an LM).

In the end the fets make a slight difference (much less now than when we were running AM since they are already 'stacked'), but I personally prefer the feel of the stock fets power curve.

70t motors have more variance in power than the faster motors, primarily because they are slower and its much easier to see the difference between a fast one and one that isnt quite as fast. I have shown Tom that even with a 'slow motor' with a little care, it can go quite fast... I had been using that motor Tom gave me because it was too slow at the old place for the last year in Narrow ;)

Then if you want to get beat by driving....why not run a point series for narrow and exclude 355,512 and 350z. Skinny tires all around. No wide rears ....then we will see!

Nooooo, I don't know the first thing about setting up skinny rears, i have tried a few times and couldn't get it to work. I know it can obviously be done but not by me. :eek: Anyway why would you exclude certain bodies?

NO better yet. Just like the fet thing here why don't we actually do narrow with car bodies that are not dremeled out for longer wheelbase for stability. If it's 90mm then so it should be setup. If they want the 355 then don't dremel out the wheel wells build the car 90mm just like I did...

Again, we've changed the subject from driving to being able to setup a certain kind of car, which i have admitted I could certainly use some help with but i have no problem with 90mm, my wide & narrow 90mm Countach's were killer. I was actaully contemplating switching the 355 to 90 just to see how it would be but didnt want to mess myself up for the 'Nats. I think enough people have mentioned it that Al would consider making that the next narrow series. Let's ask him... Al??? whatcha think?

I've been suggesting a Narrow class, with narrow wheels all round for some time. The lap time of our narrow cars are almost identical (for some, faster)to our wide cars. From a business stand point its great. New narrow wheels, narrow 20's in the rear etc. We can try it for a series, if it sucks in the opinion of the masses..... then we switch back. :D

I love the fact that you want to run narrow with only skinnys even though the bodies you mentioned come with wide rears, its still a narrow body, yet no problem with FET-ing your car. I'm seriously laughing at the attempted distraction to get off the real subject :).

The reason why I said about those specific cars is there just so boring. And easy to setup by the way. Why not do a BMW narrow or something else. Thats why I dont run narrow its boring! How many people run 512's what about 355's oh and dont for get 350z's.

I think Al should really think about shaking it up a bit. Though I won't loose any sleep if it does'nt happen. Narrow is just boring. I guess I really miss the third class! Now that I diagnosed my own problems....lol

The same people win all the time ....the order is the same because the setups are down to a science.

Are you saying racers don't run the same wide bodies?? Hello, the bodies are used because they work better than others. What do you tell a new guy when he/she is looking for a different, good handling body...look at what everyone is running. Boring, maybe we should look back a few posts because thats how this started, I said the narrow class has evolved into just another Mod class with a different body...Scott I don't think you were racing yet but how many times have you heard about how great the unmodified narrrow was?? There was no guaranteed winner then, now you can be a lap or more down and still come back to win, that was not possible before. I'd just like to ask you to clarify if you think narrow is boring because of the speed because what do you think an 80T would be?? Oh btw that statement about a certain body being easier to set-up is is bull and you know it, out of everyone running a 355 or a 512 they are all different, compare mine, Marty's, Dominicks, Sai's, EMU, and Jonathons and tell me there the same "easy" setup. There just like any other body on the shelf...If you ask around there are also racers who have used these bodies and can't get them to work for them or they just don't like them, so again I say BOLLOCKS!

Hey Al, I agree lets shake the place up--get a hold of Phil and Sai, and I'll go halvies with you so we can provide a free FET removal service for all those unfortunate who have gone to the dark side.

Boring? Really? I think you're in the minority there but we're all entiltled to our opinions. As far as the same people winning, how is that different from the wide class (Mosler anyone?) :p

What are u setting it up for

I dont know. Probably a spare wide car.

Put me in line 1st and you'll see I still can't drive well enough with or without fets.... Both Jonathon and Phil tech'ed my car and they run the same fets and my narrow was so much quicker. At the other tracks they tech'ed my equipment and same answer why is my car so fast..... I have 2 80t motors one sealed by Mr.Philip Ng and the other brought at Maj's both broken in the same way (with witnesses Sai being one) and they are both different in the same car with same gearing... The fets are only there to give you the puch those motors lack or don't have because they have to get gear from 3.9-4.5 when most of you gear all your motors at 4.3. My narrow is gear to that same ratio 4.3 and the fets are giving me Atomic USA Spec punch just to try to get in & out of the infeild quicker. My top end is still at the mercy of an 70t or 80t capability....

2011.03.09, 12:16 PM
man you guys get way off track with things... fets in a 80t motor makes absolutly no difference... fetsd in general make no difference unless the motor requires it... if you cannot complete an entire race without hiting a wall or getting into an accident or blowing a line you will never see the difference in fets as far as the results are concerned...

my 02 pan car sat was a stock board.. outside of having some binding issues in the main you couldnt tell if my board was fetted or not...

i think yiou guys are losing site if Scotts plans fo rthe 80t motor... he is trying to create an class that will create simplicity and allow racers to develope the necessary skills needed to become fast... trust me everything you guys are discussing is everything we were discussing when we decided to run the class.. nothing discussed even matters now in that class... its probally the most exciting class we have at right now... the battles and lead changes are insane... trust me you will all love this class..

Hey Guys,

I agree with Junior on this one.... The fets don't make much of a difference. What does make a difference (setup aside) is battery conditioning and a good set of matched batteries that are fully charged. (Charged with charger that charges each cell independently) Additionally, you should not put any com drops in the motor and make sure that you clean it out every race. A clean motor will always perform faster and harder. Just my opinion.

2011.03.09, 12:23 PM
I wouldnt say narrow is boring, but it has lost a lot of luster due to the fact we start the quals. after the hype of the wide main is still brewing. I use to love running my narrow. I had a good car that was basic and it worked. My problem started when I bought one of those reflex blueprinted motors ( to be faster) and it made the steering jittery. That was my big mistake! I think narrow should be revamped to get the luster back.

My suggestions include a a set gear ratio, 48 or 64 pitch, any AWD or MR015 specific body with narrow tires, and a agreed upon spec tire and the PN 70T. Period!!! So what if the body came with wide rears. Go +2, or 3 in the rear for god sakes. For those who run at the beach will attest the mini class is the favorite because it's the heavier police'd class, the action is very close and competitive. That is what makes it fun!

JuniorWKR
2011.03.09, 12:40 PM
not sure about the gearing... people run different gearing for different driving style... when we ran 70t at mhs i was always one tooth lower then most casue i like bbeeter infield speed then straightaway speed... gearing may really throw off someones natural timing and relly hurt their racing experience for no reason...

i still feel you guys are really wwwwaaaaaayyyyyyyy off subject on the point that was trying to be made about 80t...

plain and simple.. fets or no fets.. batteies or no batteries.. gearing or not... that motor will allow for everyone from f main to amain to be driving on the same level... it will eliminate crashing.. hacking by the faster guys cause the slower guys arent moving outta the way...it wont allow for the fast guys to be blowing doors off on the straightaway...

but ultimatly what it will do whcih is the greatest benifit is it will give the slower guys way more oppurtunity of chances to hang with the faster guys for longer periods of time and be able to follwo their line and try and hold their infield speed which in return will make everyone in the shop faster and a better racer period..

2011.03.09, 12:46 PM
I'm not going to get in an argument about what effect the FET upgrade has but lets be realistic and tell the truth, it makes a difference. No way anyone can tell me that the 70T running today on Fet-ed boards is the same as when we first ran it in the 70T PAN car series. I really don't want to start any internal team trouble but I have personally had conversations with your own team members that haved stated explicitly that they needed a FET job because their car was slow and after the FET job said team members jumping around like a little school girl yelling how Sai is the best because now the car is fast. Pucho I'm not even sure you were racing when we were doing 70T when it first came out, but I'm sure if you were you would have loved it. I think you all have to go around the track and talk to people who raced the 70T series before the FET-ing and ask them how great it was. My opinion only I think FET-ing is muting the classes...does everything have to be a speed demon? I love racing against the elite guys on an equal playing field and you know what, you may think the top guys will always dominate--guess what thats not the case because you have to tone down your aggressiveness because one slip up can cost you the race because you don't have the ability to make up that ground unless someone else makes an error. All of you know I'm an A-Main driver and you also know my car is always the slowest--do I win sometimes but more often not, now make the track layout slower and more technical I win and place higher in the order more often...does this mean I can't drive a fast car no it means I have more control and run better lines without bashing into people with an uncontrollable car, and yes I'm even speaking of the elite drivers because we all know when a groupful show up at the track with there ballistic cars what do we all say before the buzzer goes off--(oh boy this is going to be a hackfest). Sorry if it seems like I'm beating this subject like a dead horse but I miss having races where I lose because another racer is just a better driver and in all honesty it gets disheartening week after week to keep saying well if this guy didn't flip me or if he didn't smash into me...and I see an issue now where this is now trickling down to the lower classes as well. I'm not making any excuses as to why I don't win because you know I could really care less what I do care about is clean racing and I don't see and issue where one class can be maniacal (wide) and another more technical...I mean really what am I asking, you can do anything you want to your car EXCEPT have a speed advantage, I don't think thats asking too much, but like Al says, and I agree how would you police it. In my mind its a shame why it would have to be policed.

2011.03.09, 12:58 PM
Seriously I can't believe all the suggestions about about limiting things like gearing, tires, and bodies on narrow, which I'm against because those are set-up items for the way a driver drives but no one agrees on limiting the speed :eek:. Junior my point is not to take away a possible 80T class I'm just stating that we had that already with the the 70T and it was done away with because of FET-ing (the motors didn't change the boards did). I'll put it out there for all the public to see--I will make a prediction that if we run an 80T class it will be less than a month before we start hearing "why is he sooo much faster than me with the same motor", sound familiar??

i understqand that but what im trying to tell you is that fets don not make a difference with the 80t motor which is why your conceren about fets wont be a concern with this motor.. this motor only gives so much top end... fets arent going to give you more... there isnt a big enough amp draw to even max out the stock fets to any additional fets wont make a difference... im kinda agreeing with what your saying but you cannot see the point that im trying to make to back your concern that by running this motor you wont have to worry if a board is fetted or not..

I'm not worried about top end with a slow motor my main concern would be exiting corners quicker because with a FET-ed board you have a bigger gateway that can get the power down quicker and thats makes more of a difference with a slow motor--thats exactly what happened with the 70T they had way more punch and would pull away in the corners. To tell you the truth I'm actually wanting to do the 80T so I can sit back and watch because inevitably it will happen that someones going to get that "great motor--jacked batteries" combo, can't wait to see who it would be :D

I think Al's Narrow rules work well and most people have fun with it. Why change?

Narrow rear tires are more realistic; but RCP traction isn't cooperating. I find it very difficult to tune a Narrow car on RCP with Narrow rear tires. Carpet is a different story. Traction rolling is the main issue.

80T is kind of fun on the infield, but it's incredibly boring on the long straightaway at Action. Also when a car does not go fast enough the setup flaws do not appear; it's a learning process.

I will not run a 70T, 80T car without upgraded FETs in a race, period. I don't care about actual electrical current draw / resistance , etc.... I can feel the difference; so do many other racers. The punch is not there without upgraded FETs. I fetted my Narrow car from the WinterNats it is now much punchier with the same battery pack. I do notice that Junior's batteries and his charging method are very impressive; maybe then the FETs don't matter much. I just don't have that much patience dealing with batteries. I want LiPo.

Even though it's been about two years I still consider myself new to this hobby because i know nothing of how the electronics work and this is my 1st RC venture ever. I didn't even know what a FET was till i blew up AM boards trying to use an faster motor. Because of this i cant argue whether it's FETS, batteries, gering, cheating or whatever and i understand (especially the 70 turns) that even though they're supposed to be the same performance differs from motor to motor but... you cannot convince me that some guys just got a good 70T motor that just happens to be faster than my Atomic stock.

Don't forget I am a fan of Open motor rule. Nobody argues when motor is not restricted. I spend a great deal of time and money on batteries with 70T slow motor racing. I'm done with it except 70T Narrow at Action and elsewhere. Narrow is good looking and fun to race.

I'd say take advantage of technology. Stock double 3010 FETs can handle almost any motor; and LiPo / LiFe require far less maintenance; are very equal and actually cost less in the long run.

Someone just PM'd me this idea (won't say who--I'm not sure they want to be known but it is an alternative :).

Figure out what is allowed for any motor and then put a claimer on it. It is the perfect leveling device. Make the clain fee for the replacement price of the motor. This will discourage most everybody from messing with only to have it claimed. Once claimed then inspect it for tampering. If any is found then you get your claim fee returned and somebody has a very red face. Kick it around. It sure makes things easier especially if you restrict the claim to drivers in the same race.

Boy this is some "discussion"

Marty its almost like those races where there are limitations on what can be done to your car. Then for a set price the other racers have the opportunity to buy your car for a set amount of money that the car owner can not refuse. So if a racer feels I modded my car too much he can buy it for say 1000.00---what this does is it stops me from modding my car so much because anyone can buy it for that low price and I could be losing out. Its a tactic to keep you "honest". I've even seen at RC tracks that every class would switch around the handout motors from driver to driver so nobody could say he got a better motor than I did. Crazy right?

Just my .02 but fetting has been going on for a long time with mini-z's. Usually thats the first thing you upgrade on these cars if your serious about racing. They draw more power and are efficient.

This is starting to sound like larger scale racing where boost, no boost, advanced timing, no timing. The "ESC Wars" :D

CDR racing
2011.03.09, 05:41 PM
The reason why I said about those specific cars is there just so boring. And easy to setup by the way. Why not do a BMW narrow or something else. Thats why I dont run narrow its boring! How many people run 512's what about 355's oh and dont for get 350z's.

I think Al should really think about shaking it up a bit. Though I won't loose any sleep if it does'nt happen. Narrow is just boring. I guess I really miss the third class! Now that I diagnosed my own problems....lol

The same people win all the time ....the order is the same because the setups are down to a science.

I think this is everyone's point scott. Narrow has gotten much more boring than it originally was because of the disparity between the faster and slower guys. Originally this racing was so close and so good that it was extremely exciting. It still is the same way from the B Main down, but there is a virtual brick wall between the A and the B now, and that is made by speed. The A guys have the narrow cars running so much faster than everyone else it is ridiculous. I also agree with I think marty who said that everyone likes to say "Oh I just got a good motor." Whenever people are called out on this topic there are often a lot of lines thrown out there to defend themselves that don't really hold up. Take "Slower is faster" for example. A lot of guys like to defend running faster with the Narrow by using that cliche. For some of us (the B mainers) this may be the case. We run less clean lines with our faster cars and get cleaner and smoother with the slower car. However, that whole concept has diminishing returns with the guys at the top of the charts. The more experienced, better racers run great clean lines regardless of what car they run, and still run equally fast with both, so that is clearly a speed issue. The point was to have those elite racers running their normal lines with a slower car, allowing the lower drivers to run better lines in a slow car and narrow the gap between the two. Right now, those faster guys are running at the same speed AND the same line, which defeats the purpose. Not trying to call anyone out on cheating, and it's not even cheating because the rules are very lax. My point is something needs to be done to make this come back towards what it used to be. I know Al doesn't like the time, effort, or potential trouble that comes from spec-ing cars and I understand that, but I think if this class is going to be what it is really intended to be there needs to be some sort of tighter regulations again. I do agree with Al 100% though that this would be a moot point if Kyosho would just put the darn holes in the motors!

Do I smell an Awd mod class

EMU
2011.03.09, 08:16 PM
I have to say something. As racers, we search for speed. Regardless what the class, motor restriction, etc. A class that has been around for a few years, people are going to figure out how to find more speed than others, and stay within the rules.

In general for my narrow cars, I use harder front tires than most other racers, this allows me to slow down less in the corners. I still get the steering that I want, but I scrub much less speed than if I were to set the car up for Kyosho 30s. This is my 70t driving style, and specifically the reason why I did not drive narrow at the WinterNats. I didnt want to change my flow from the faster motors that I was using in the other classes.

I seem to remember even when we used the Kyosho motors, I was running just as fast with the 350z as I did with my Corvette in the wide class with a Speedy 07bb. So to say that this has evolved into a mod class, I think I will call BOLLOCKS!!!! The setups have just been more refined and many people have figured out what works for them. Take into consideration that the narrow class cars are usually considerably lighter than wide, which makes the cars have closer power to weight ratios as a Mosler with a 50t would have. Many things come into play, and i feel that fets are probably the least to worry about with 70t or 80t, but still do have an effect.

In general in narrow, the point is to not slow down. In wide the point is to get the car to hook up very well out of the corner and apply power. Your basic stock/mod setup styles... Jonathans narrow car looked like it only drove one speed, full speed. It didnt look like he slowed down at all.

Scott, please spare us the song and dance on that quote. Your whole objective is to stir the pot and always has been :)

I totally disagree on the narrow class being boring or needing a change. Some of the closest racing comes from this class and always has.

I personally think we should drop the 80t nonsense and introduce a real change to the program - the dNano !!

I do agree with Al 100% though that this would be a moot point if Kyosho would just put the darn holes in the motors!

the only way would be to hand out motors when we register that night and give them back at the end of that night. if you sneak in a 'break in' that night you're fooling yourself cause someone else would get the motor the next week - and your work would turn against you. haha get it, 'turn' against you. it's really not a lot of work. that would negate all the good points CDR just raised.

In all honesty I wasn't trying to stir the pot as you will. The proposal took a life of it's own. And don't threaten me with a good time. I really like dnano. Yes the cars are small but race on a track waist hight. Junior hit 73 laps in 7 minutes... And there fun. Will they take the place of mini z .... No of course not but it's fun to change it up! Like I said I'm not the anti narrow it's just boring to me. The best part about the third class was tearing Down and rebuilding to suit a class. Narrow nothing changes. Boring I know not all of you share my opinion but that's the way I feel about it. It has nothing to do with motors or fetts. Don't really care if you run fetts or not it a choice only you could decide. I started to build my 430 80t on my narrow chassis. I asked Al if ge would let me run it in the 70 turn class but no luck! A wide body with a narrow frontend with a 80 turn.... I thought it might be interesting!

SaiTam
2011.03.09, 11:39 PM
Wide body / Narrow Front End with 80T running in 70T Narrow class? And you told Al about that combo?

You can change the car as you please, if its boring for you... try something new that still fits within the limits of the class. That is what I have always done to spice things up and try different ideas to see if a completely different approach can be as fast as the current setup. Narrow is a little different in approach than wide, due to the fact that car is smaller, lighter, and has less power.

With very few changes, my narrow 355 setup was converted into a 94mm hatch setup, where I used Megane/Subaru/GTI on it with the 48t round can and then the 40t round can. The car handled the 48t pretty well, but the 40t was a little much for the setup as I ran out of rear grip out of the corner (may need to soften the rear just a little, but then I will lose a little corner speed). The car still has 95% of the config that it had under the 355, only tires and motor are different. The setup of this car is a very versatile solid setup that works under many bodies. When we were racing at the old place, I would change up the body on my narrow car almost every race... The 355 was always the most consistent for me, but I wanted to try to change things up.

I am going to be developing a 90mm setup over the next few weeks... I plan to use narrow rear wheels with it as well :) Probably a Mini body, or if I can get the new Fiat, I may try that as it covers the front wheels better.

hpotter
2011.03.10, 02:07 AM
I still don't get why narrow is boring because you don't tear it down every week for something new, who changes there wide car when its working good? People are different if you like tearing it apart, do it, if you don't, leave the car as is. I for one don't change my cars basic setup that often unless something goes awry, but I have my reasons one of them being (and this may sound funny to some but I could care less) I don't touch any screw on these chassis unless I have to because of the fear of the screw holes stripping out. If I remember what my what my elders told me when I was younger, I believe it was something like "if it ain't broke, don't fix it".

A Mayoral cover-up scandal?:eek::mad: Wow Mike's right this is getting deep!

Now whether i agree with everything Scott says or not i will defend him on this one. It's not easy doing the points for the teams especially once we get into the weeks that Al drops our low scores off the individual point sheets. That said i re-entered the whole nine weeks on my own without looking at Scotts numbers until i was finished. The only mistake was for one week the C guys that were absent got 3 extra points. Not only Austin but all the other teams as well. Again this goes back to not seeing all the names that were actually in the race because of the individual drops. So is it getting deep in here? yes:D but the points are legit.

Actually i can admit when i make a mistake, unlike most people i work with. I know what happened, That should be an absentee score. I originally had the qualified out of division as orange and it was too close to the red absent color so i switched it to blue and apparently i thought that was originally orange.

Last night was fun, until my car DIED! It was a great A Main (yes, I was in the A because my skills have finally improved!), and I was trying to catch Scott for 2nd, slammed the wall, and the car just stopped. Motor wires were fine. I'll have to swap the motor out to see if that was the problem. Hopefully, that's all it is - no funny smells (from the car anyway.)

Sales tax must be postmarked by 3/21, so PLEASE come out and race this weekend! The track takes a hit four times a year when tax is due, so please come out and race! The 'Nats are over, and everyone should be very well refreshed at this point, so let's go!

them to go bad

mothers polish on the bushings... spin for 15 mins i reverse polarity...

clean bushings....
apply bushing oil...
spin for 30 mins in standard polarity...
last 10 seconds dip in simple green and spray clean immediatly...
do full cleaning of motor with motor spray...
reapply bushing oil and you will be good to go...

anything longer then 10 seconds in simple green and you will be buying new brushes... ;)

I would just like to say.....:p:p:p ....to all of you. There is not a racer in the house that can say that last night sucked! It was unbelievable.....No frowns only smiles ear to ear. And by the way someone shop down my helicopter:mad: There is an offical investigation into this matter and the perps will be lashed with twizzlers and stoned with skittles. I have never seen so many Nerf Guns in my life. If there was a war and Nerf's were the weopon of choice we would win the war. We had Nerf guns in form of 50 caliber to 25 barreters. The confetti canon........what can i say.........AWESOME!!!!!
thank god Joe D from DMS went home and got his ghost buster vacum!

Where should I start? I would like to thank Al for letting this Dream team cup party happen. I've been to a few tracks, and I Dont know many that would allow for this type of shenanigans to occur on their RCP, or even dirt. Lucklily we're getting a new one. I can picture Al going across the street to barrow the leaf blower from the neighbors up the hill. (I bet they have one :D). Scott, with the help of the Richmond County DA's squad there are several person(s) of intrest and a suspect is expected to turn himself in with his lawyer this evening. So far no witness has come forward.

I got the whole incident on video. Deonte Jarvis from Payne Racing will be charged with:

destruction of a DKR Helicopter

He will be arrested and detained while DKR members hold him down and run sc10's all over his body. He will however get some consideration because he is related to Jamil.....but not to much!!!:D

Crazy night. Still cant believe there was a confetti cannon shot off (multiple times). Shocked that nobody's car got Godzilla'd during the "Studio 54" race.
Jamil - Talk about Sammy the bull. That poor kid didn't have a chance to get away with it. Then again i'm sure there were multiple witnesses to his jumping around yelling "I got it, I got it, I took down the helicopter, did you see that!!!" Priceless.

On a different note (racing) - Tom & Nat - Thanks for the race. When you come off the stand with your heart beating face and your hands shaking you know that was a heck of a race. I'm gonna get that A main win yet but for now I'll take 2nd. I know we have a lot of different opinions here regarding the narrow class but the last few races have been incredible. Whoever takes this series win definitely will have earned it.

Upon review of the evidence we found a black leather glove near the scene of the crime.

Tom- I am still not happy with the diff but upon changing the front tires from 30's to 40's is much better. On the present track my best was 11.28 but newb traffic was a factor!

Junior- that tippman is old. DKR rolls with Spyder auto's baby! With no jamming! In my freezer we stock paintballs!

The charges for Deonte Jarvis has been reduced. The Helicopter has been recovered and repaired after being shot down around lap counter st and RCP ave. The pilot Adam Marks sustained minor injuries and been admitted to Staten Island University Hospital on Seguine ave for further observation. He has been released and is enjoying some coctails at the Mayor's expense!

In other news.....

Protesters rally outside Action RC as they are outragged at owner Al (Mr Action) Venditti for not allowing a second Studio 54 Race. When speaking with Mr Venditti he has no comment at this time. he promises a press meeting later in the week.

Richie Lawson from DKR Construction is taking slack for a fallen Disco Ball. Members of DMS are outraged and seek justice in the matter. After obtaining an attorney (Harley Schick) she had this to say! "See you on the Track"!

And thats all from the news desk "Thank you and Good Night"
