It's amazing just how fast and fun to drive these hard body cars are!! If you didn't know better--you'd think they were 115 gram retro cars!! But their more like 170-190 gram hard body rockets!! Very fun and easy to drive!! FUN RACE Keith!! Thanks for all your hard work!!

Awesome footage Keith! I am really impressed with how well the cars handle and what appears to be a nice pace.

Our Team Sloth car was the heaviest out there at 207 grams! You'd never know it to see how it made it around the track. Great to see the video. Thanks much, Keith.

After reading the results sheets, Team Hi Tech turned fastest lap on every lane except green. Unfortunately, that does not equate into the most laps turned. Our car was one of the lighter ones. Being a little heavier I'm sure would of meant ... more laps and a more forgiving car. We had a couple riders that did ALOT of damage and time getting back on the track. I'm still proud of our Team and special thanks to Sam Rackham and Tim Hould for all their work and a great drive. We are looking forward to the next one!

You guys were ballistic Jim, but like you found out-- endurance racing is just that! Ya gotta stay on to make laps! We made the mistake of not planning on a motor change--so it took nearly an entire heat!! That killed us!! Next one will be WRC cars!! They won't be nearly as good handling as the GTP stuff. But it should be another FUN race!! It will be cool to see what you build for that one!! The "Sloth" guys had the least amount of problems and drove clean! That's why they ended up on top.

Our motor died with about 2 minutes to go on the final heat. We ran one of those snap-over heat syncs and the motor was with out a doubt cooler than when we did not have it in testing. We are sure we could have made the entire race on one motor with a bit less aggressive break in.
