Erik, how did you do at Tamiya race?
I did well. Not as good as I hoped as I just missed a step on the podium (a-mains results were 4th, 4th and 1st). There was actually some confusion at the awards ceremony due to a computer glitch in main #1 and I was initially awarded 2nd place due to my win in main #3. However, I ended up losing third place on the tie breaker - apparently a win and a 4th doesn't beat a 2nd and a 3rd :(.

I had a much better handling car this year and was closer to the front 3 racers than the prior year - the top two racers were definitely quicker/more consistent then the 2016 winner, so that was a plus. Looking forward to making a run in 2018 :)

Great day of racing on Sunday. There were heats of VTA, USGT (x2), 1/12th scale and F1. Had a few new racers running in several of the classes. The new layout was a fun change of pace and by qual 3, most everyone had it down

Hope to see everyone at the track next Sunday - Dec 11th.

NIB Parma 1/12th scale bodies - $12 each

I picked up a few 1/12th scale bodies for a really good price. No way I can go through as many as I purchased over the course of a season.

10207 - Parma 1/12 EE1 Clear Body .030 (new in the package) - $12 each

PM, email me or stop by my pit at the track if interested.

FYI - Looks like a good day for racing on Sunday. Hope to see everyone at the track :)

Had a nice turn out of USGT, 1/12th scale, F1 and VTA cars. Some of the gas racers made it to the track for the 1st time this season. Also, the VTA cars were starting to hook up with the new Protoform tires/wheels (HPI stopped making them).

Hope to see everyone back at the track again next Sunday,

Another great day of racing this past Sunday.

Had a nice turn out of USGT (2heats), 1/12th scale, 1/12th scale spec (21.5 motors, CRC control tire, GT style bodies), F1 (2 heats) and VTA (2 heats) cars.

F1 is turning into the big class with 3-4 guys prepping cars and 3-4 more who are alternating weeks. If everyone show at once, there could be 20-25 racers :)

Hope to see everyone back at the track again next Sunday,

FYI - I found a Tamiya Porsche 956 Jost body set (part #51491)- new in the package. If someone wants it for the new 21.5 1/12th scale class, $32 and its yours :)

I also have a HobbyWing 1S 120A Xerun ESC (81020211 #700061) and two 1/12th scale servos (1 Futaba, 1 JR) if someone wants to get into the class. I will bring those to the track as well.
