素晴らしい、共有をありがとう。

車、トラック、建物、食品、レーサーがすべてでは最高。皆さん右のそれ。佐野を言うことができますか?

I hope this came out right.

This race weekend was fun and very busy for me.
New racers were so diligent in practicing/braking their cars, keeping me busy repairing their cars.
This reminded me of Paul, who was always helping racers by adjusting, fixing cars at such big events as Check Point Cups & Western States.
Our race in May will have more new racers, making me more busy but I will enjoy it a lot.

Keep racing,

Geez Haruki--you're over a .10 better than the next best qualifier?? Got your car and driving going together really well!! Congrats!!

And it's amazing that the Can Am cars have now distanced themselves from F-1 in speed? Seems we need to put some emphasis on new F-1 designs to catch up a little. They used to be within .05 or so of each other. Now it's nearly .30! Gotta start thinking what can be done to improve the F-1 performance.
:)
She's real fine, my 409!!!

First of all, I have to apology to you for not posting our race results since Race #7 both at here and Keith's web-site.
Akitani-san has been absent from our activities since this summer, I have been in charge of race reporting.
Our race results have been posted at our web-site: tokyod3.com and our page on Facebook.
I will send the data of Race #8-10 to Keith as soon as possible.

Yesterday, we had a very special race in which the cars with PD motors with minimum weight requirement of 100g (IRRA spec.) were raced with TSRD3/Falcon7 cars for the first time.

Kamo-san raced his newest Kamo-Spider II Can-Am with Falcon 7 with no minimum weight requirement.
HIs 88 gram car broke our track record with 3.990 a lap at the Qualify!!

My Kamo-Spider II with PS4002B-B, weighing 101 gram, also broke the track record with 4.04 a lap, qualified second.

Light weight cars with TSRD3/Falcon7 raced well with 100g minimum cars with PD motors.

Please stay tuned for the more detailed report.

Congratulations Tokyo D3 racers.

Kamo and Haruki for breaking the track record in qualifying. Kamo for breaking the 4 second mark and Haruki for his Can-Am victory. Way to go gentlemen.

Did you notice a difference in how the ProSlot powered cars ran in the race vs. the FK motors.

Be well,
Greg VanPeenen
