I hope I can make it sunday. I had so much fun racing with you guys.

I read a little more about my body from the comments you made Patrick. I read that the Murcielago has really good handling and crashes well because of the 0 offset in the front and the +3 offset in the back. supposively it makes the car handle really well and is stable. I'm thinking about getting another one now.

Shuan- I forgot but how much do I owe you for the antenna?

I'm not going to be able to make this week. Had something come up unexpected. I'm a little bummed. I just received several new parts I wanted to try out. I should be able to make next race.

Marvin - Don't worry about the antenna. I have plenty.

Billy - Sorry to hear you won't be able to make it. Try Toy East .com for the Enzo bodies.

I hope I can make it tomorrow also. I might be working. If I can race I will be there around 11:00.

11:00 will be fine Shaun, hope you can make it! Hope to see you next time Billy.

I now have a projector that I will be playing with to project race stats! We'll see how it works.

Glad you guys had fun! I'll post the results tonight when I get home.

If you find a clear (non-colored) MR-02 chassis set (just the plastic parts, not a complete running chassis), I'll take one!

Have a good & safe trip Marvin. See you when you get back!

Results from Sunday
-----------------------

We only had 3 people show; Jay, Marvin, and Matt (and of course I was there). We still had a good time. Marvin and Matt improved rapidly by the end of the day. You could see their 10th scale experience paying off in the Mini-Z areana! It appeared (or so I think Marvin thought), that victory would come easily over Matt and Jay, but Matt had a different idea! We ran 3 separate stock races. They had some good close racing with Matt taking 1st by the last race. Very nice racing! Marvin and Matt could quickly become very tough competition for everyone! Jay continues to improve too (didn't want to leave you out Jay :) ). Don't improve too fast though. When you start actually scoring the fast laps, I'll have to change the "Holy sh_t, Jay scored the fast lap..." announcement that the lap couting software says! ;)

Anyway, it was fun! Marvin and Matt, I hope you can make it back soon! See you soon Jay.

Here's the results:

Stock 1st Race (http://www.atlrcmotorsports.com/amrcr-results/Stock1-050706-amain.htm)

Stock 2nd Race (http://www.atlrcmotorsports.com/amrcr-results/Stock2-050706-amain.htm)

Stock 3rd Race (http://www.atlrcmotorsports.com/amrcr-results/Stock3-050706-amain.htm)

Dang. Two new people who are straight away faster than me. I checked the lap times. Patrick, did you really turn a 5.02?. I gotta get my track set up for practicing. Well, at least the number of racers is increasing. That's good. I knew I'd be slow. I guess that's what happens when you're used to having a slot to do all the steering. :rolleyes:

Hmmmm... I guess I did turn a 5.02! I wasn't paying attention. Cool!

Marvin and Matt were running pretty good! You'll have some new competition now Billy. Hope to see you next time.

Next race will be Sunday the 5/21/06. I'll post a new race event for it tonight.
