So turns out I had a rock stuck in my rear diff pulley for the 4wd main on Saturday !  That's what you get for changing a snapped belt at the track ;). Belt dust/pieces everywhere inside.  New belts and pulleys, rebuilt front and rear diff and if I can close up the patient tonight it'll be ready for Wed.

Jack and I are in for 2 and 4.  Maybe 1/8 scale next week ;)

Got the 2wd B5 ready.  :)
SCT is still ready to win and I did some setup changes to my ebuggy to try to make it even better.  ;D

Weather is showing as sunny and 20 degrees with a chance of a thunder shower early afternoon with less than 1mm of rain.  Therefore I think the track conditions will be ideal tomorrow evening.

You ready to go racing?

Me and my Cat k1 probably won't be there this time. It needs a little bit of TLC before I run it again and doesn't look like I"ll have enough time.

See you Friday then?

Race day!

Sun is on the track now; overnight the chance of thunder shower was reduced to a slight chance  :-)

Looking good.

Cumberland was lucky because we didn't get any rain till 8 p.m. last night. 20-minute delay and we had the track covered with tarps.
Glad to see Chris came back out racing again; using my v1 EB48 for now ;)
That Noah... got me again in ebuggy  :'(
2wd buggy race was fun but I made too many mistakes. Settle for 2nd :-)  Brian has been getting fast.
Looking forward to the next race night already!

All in all another fun night ! My first a-main win  :D  Might never happen again so I'll take it !

4wd was another story.  Jack forgot to fully charge his battery so he got stopped short during the qualy, which was great because I think he was ahead of me at the time, haha! Noah schooled us both in the main as he posted the fastest 4wd main yet hitting 14 laps and even beating out his own 1/8 buggy winning time from the next race   :o
