Doors open at 11 a.m. Classes in this order: FK12 Wingers, Retro F-1, 4" Flexi nascar [FK4002 only], GT12 [FK12 or Phoenix motors only]. No tech, no qualifying, just great racing!

Are the Phx motors capable of keeping up with the GT12 motors?  Just curious!!

Preliminary hot lapping showed no more than .1 diff with FK12 being slightly ahead with no tuning on Phoenix car. Should be close!

Phoenix geared 13/35 - 38 run just fine.  14T pinion will make them overheat with 3 min+ heats.  No special break in ritual..
