.05 faster than the TQ time.

 

I guess your assessment of "bad fast" was spot on. LOL

I will scan and post all the tech sheets in the next few days.

I want to thank everyone for coming out. It was great to see so many people again! I want to thank Matt and Leslie with Duffys Raceway, Jeff Strause for sponsoring classes. Thank you to my better half Erin Noel for the pizza and breadsticks for everyone Saturday, and the Sharfenburgs for the pasta salad.

Spring Fling 2024 will be March 1-3. The plan is to add stock car also.

We look forward to making improvements to help make this a better event for everyone.

Shireys car was bad fast the last half of the race.

I PM'ed Eric last night and he mentioned he ran the same G11 in all 3 races, TQ'ing GTC and Can Am, and running a faster race lap than the TQ time, while winning F1.

I'm just getting the point across on the G11's, if the motor isn't clearly defective, with the brushes hanging off the end of the comm, it's as fast as any previous Gen's of CR102's, with the (thinly) plated silver comm, not an issue.

He gave you full credit. Lol

He mentioned he got another real fast motor, along with an OK one.

He also mentioned you used Fabuloso.

I also had good success using it, although I absolutely despise the smell.

On the subject of G11's, I also heard that one recently hot lapped 3.3's in a car built for a new racer, on Piranha's speedy King.

Oh I wasnt after the credit, just saying I knew they for sure were G11 because I had them in my hands.

His I actually did in Simple Green. For whatever reason, simple green is faster than Fabulouso. But with simple green you have to be careful because itll burn through the brush quicker. One of his the brushes were shorter than I intended.
