just stock?

Yup, my cars are setup for RCP, and my mod and stock cars need different setups for Patrick's track. The mod cars are more time consuming to get setup right, so i'll spend the extra time getting the right setup for my stock car.

The only car that works well on both is my F1:D

Well, duh! I didn't even look at the date. I guess it's a good week to be unable to make it.

Well, work has been brutal (we have more work this year than ever before) so I'm behind on stuff around the house. Hence, I won't be able to make it this time which really disappoints me as I've been itching for some RC action.

Hank and I have had some tight races lately. At Russ house we we ~2-3 feet apart when his 2.4 board shut down after I chased him down from an earlier crash.

I wish I know what was up with that motr in the main. ~ lap 53 the lap times started improving. but before that I was ~ 6 seconds a lap where in the previous qualifier it was 5.1 to 5.5s most laps. All I can think is when I sprayed it out a clump of brush goop got under a brush

yup we did have some good runs lately. My car was pushing a little even with PN 8s on the front with PN 6s on the rear. I finally have a setup that works on RCP and Patrick's track!

For the main, I cleaned the front tires to get a little more steering, which helped me run a 5.18, I think the fastest of the day.

It did stink that your car dropped a little during the main. I was a little scared I would have something weird happen to my car too, so during the beginning and middle of the race, I was driving at a slower pace.

I only sped up after feeling my slower pace was almost the same as my regular pace since the batteries were a putting out a little less power.

Next race will be fun, looking to lower the fastest lap to a 5.15:p:D

I was on reflex rears worn/regrooved and very worn pn15s no sauce and think I did a 5.17 in qualifier 2. I can definately see the advatage of the double 3010 you were running on the ad board. Your car would have a hair more puch coming out of the corners and would hit a second gear ~2/3 of the way down the straight. My possible conficts with the next raceday have cleared up so I am 90% sure I will be there for the next race.

I think its my gearing, I have a 9 tooth pinion with a F1 spur(45 teeth I think). Also, I took advantage of the fet rules, I upgraded to 2x2 of 8858 fets;)
