 Aaron this is just another example of your insanity. I have loaded my truck with tools and done all kinds of things to help at Norcal. My son helps at Norcal. You have been nowhere to be seen when it comes to helping. So get off your high horse and stop running your mouth and thinking thats helping, because its not. Your heading for a Hughey Headlock!

In Castro's defense, he had ESC issue for the norcal champ race. It would have been interesting if he had a trouble free weekend.

If we end up racing on the small track, I'll be racing on the big track.

The big track is similar. I still remember running alot of blue bar codes (original) on that track. At times, the big track is a little better with the pin tires such as the J Concepts double dee and Proline Holeshot.

Senor Death:  I think racenut might be talking about 2-wheel.

 

Mr. Nut: try some scrubs front (full losi rear foam), the blue v2s were great on the small track, greens weren't bad as well with a stiffer foam.  I'm positive the red BK bars would be great as well. Not sure about the big track.

For 1/10 scale I like Green V2 Bar Codes. Blue normal Barcodes are good as well. Blue V2's are kinda on the edge. If the track is smoother, 2 stage foam. If the track is blown out, probably and1 foam. You need it for the ruts.

As for front tires, the new J Concepts Blue Rips are very consistent. Blue bar codes will likely produce the most steering, but its sketchy to drive. White bar codes are easier to drive than blue and produce the least steering but may be better overall if you are right on the line and don't make any mistakes.

Sorry. I'm so used to being attacked I almost had no doubt it was about me. Sorry I pulled a ABR and got it wrong. My bad ;(

As for tires....alot of tires work on the 1/8 track. It's really true that in 1/8 scale tires aren't everything. It's not as sensitive as a 1/10 car. This is because the car is so heavy and accelerates slower. You can pretty much run a variety of medium spiked tires in soft or med compound. The J concepts Crossbars in blue are excellent. Yellow in this pattern is also good. When Maifield ran at Nor Cal he ran Crossbows in a variety of compounds depending on the wetness of the track,etc. Also, alot of guys like the AKA city block and enduros. Austin has all the info on AKA tires. I'm not sure about Proline. The sware block pattern tires are the most happy medium tire. They are good on the rough parts and smooth parts. It you run a lower pin tire, the track needs to be fresh and smoother. Otherwise it gets bad if you drive outside the racing line or in a rough section.

Hijack? Hardly. It's about making suggestions. I suggested which track we could race on. I'm the victim.

I think calipers are the best all around tire for the 1/8 track.

Callin' Out Shots....

@ABR: You have two things correct and a two things wrong. First the correct. You got my name right. That's worth 1 point on your scantron SAT test. Good job. Now the wrong... I am worried about "whatever"? Do you mean a guy who is busting his ass to build us a track by himself? Well Mr. Smart....until me or you are willing to put down our jobs and help him we should be concerned. I think staring at your Xray has done something mental to you. You owe others an apology for not caring about their well being. Next misconstrued point.....yes I used a big word...."misconstrued".....sorry about that....I said Castro would have a better chance on the old 1/10 track that he has 10,000 laps on vs. a new large track layout that he has "0" laps on. Do you get get now? Pretty easy. Double talk my......arsss. Oh and the 2nd thing you got right?....oh yeah....Castro did fall for the bait. Good job.

@Shelloil, BP, , Jiffylube, whatever :You did "hack me"....and didn't wait. It happened on the straight in the last 30 sec. It's on film and can't be denied. Not a proud moment for you. Prior to that, you were fine. Yeah....you didn't check up properly at the beginning. But I will give you a Joe Montana pass since you waited. I waited for you each and everytime I punted you around. This includes when I basically Joe Nedney'd your car off the track on my end of the straight corner pass. You only won by a mllisec and you have 1 - 3 sec unforced error on my part, a hack and non-wait on your part, and Arluck not racing to thank for your squeaked out win. If you really wanna make it interesting, I have a proposition for you. I own the belt in short course from the Nor Cal Champs. You know....the one I basically walked away in right? Want it? Come and get it this weekend. The catch? You gotta put up something of worth to make me want to put the belt on the line. The ball is in your court McEnroe.....let me know.

 Typical Aaron double speak! First he says he doesnt want to run on the new layout because he's worried about whatever. Then he says thats the track he can beat Castro on but wants to run on the old track. Bahaha Castro fell for the Vader Bait.
