Good race on Saturday with another 100 entry turnout. Jelich, good battle in the main in 4wd. The last 3 laps were crazy door to door action. I thought I had it. You got me good with 2 turns to go with that move. You used me with my own stradegy by taking that secret line at the end of the straight. Good job Kev, you're driving real good right now.
Want to give a special shout out to Papa Roy. Just want to say thanks for everything that he has done over the past couple years to get that facility up and going. No matter what, I always noticed he was there every single race day bright and early to greet all racers with a smile. That type of stuff goes along way with me. I've had a lot of good memories at Nor-Cal as a racer. I think we have been pretty lucky to have this place to go to every single weekend and I'm sure that's going to continue into the future under the new ownership. I'm hearing some big plans for the race tracks and hobby shop. Looking forward to it and supporting these guys for the coming years.
Yeah,they are closed today.Hope to see you all soon!

(TEAM PLASTIC FANTASTIC!)
To all the Vendetta owners, just wanted to share a modification that allows the use of a nyloc nut to secure the wheels. I used a 4-40 tap to rethread the CVD to accept a 4-40 screw (slightly bigger than the stock wheel screws). The screws I used were 1" long so it threaded deep enough into the CVD and is secured with lots of loctite. So far this setup has worked great for me with no signs of a loose wheel during Fridays race or even running on the dirt.

sweet! thanks John.
So racenut, what type of screw are u using to hold on sedan foams? Like a socket head with a washer? Do you know off hand what size they are? So like gas car rears-what are they 32 mm or something all around on the ST's? I have a nice set of electric foams I used to run on my xxx-s back in the Gilroy days and they are Jaco 28mm orange/purple fronts and 28mm purple rears-i bet those might work!!!!
Nice turnout again! 102 entries and counting.Good job guys being on time and with good attitudes.
Miniquake tires still work.The street tires Kiran speaks of suck. Rubber tires are at a disadvantage for sure.I ran 37 shore frt/32 shore rear foams.Pretty good.Lots of guys ran foams of different shores but that should get you in the ball park.

You really don't need 4 cars to race off-road. Thats a Bobby Gately and Kevin Jelich move. Most people aren't that eager. You will get the same wheel time for 1/2 or less the cost of a touring car when you race a 2wd or 4wd car.
