Yeah, a big thanks from me as well for putting on an excellent race. It was my first race ever, and I loved it! Count me in for future races from now on.

It was certainly a lot of fun, although it was a bit disappointing that the same screw that I've been battling with for the last day or two was what failed on me during the 2wd main. I guess I didn't prepare well enough. But I already know what I'll do to make it absolutely bulletproof and it'll never come out again! It was the screw that goes into the rear arm, which the bottom of the stock attaches to (it's not surprising it came loose under all that pressure, given how many times I've crashed, since the thread in the arm was already getting bad).

I also found out that there is indeed VERY little time or warning in between the heats, and even though I worked on charging my battery/getting/returning house transponder, checking that screw, changing tires, etc. pretty much every second I had avaliable, I still made you guys wait for me quite a few times. Sorry. >.< I'll be better prepared next time. But yeah, it seemed like the main problem for me was that there wasn't enough warning, as I needed a few mins to take off my battery from charging and put it in the car (I only have one battery). Sometimes it'd be like people are saying "we're giving a few minutes for ppl to charge up their batteries" and then 30 seconds later everyone's already on the driver's stand and waiting for me haha. Again sorry and I'll try to improve.

Other than that, everything went really smooth and I really enjoyed it. Thanks!

Usually there are more heats so there is plenty of time in between to get everything prepped. Club races are way more laid back and I don't think anyone was in a hurry so no worries. If I knew you only had the one pack, I could have loaned you one of mine! Good job though, your drove great for your first race. hope to see you out again!

Now that you have been involved in a race day you have seen how much fun it is. Also, you will know how to prepare for your next race day and it will continue to become easier each time.

It was really impressive to see the racers in the Novice class continually improve the TQ time heat after heat!!!
