Rainbows and Sunshine all day long”

Hosts: Tim Smith and Matt Howsen


Show introduction and welcome.


Sponsor time is coming, have you been a good supporter?


Tekin, what’s going on because we are hearing all kinds of crazy things Tim?


Tim Notes:


Testing: More of the same if not even better.


UC car: solid, A to B over and over. I did pull out too much slipper at the end of the day and causes it to get wild on the hit.


VP: Solid, what a pleasure it is to drive this car.

The wheelie bar is AWESOME

Told to make a link adjustment and it just made the car even more consistent.


JC belted were awesome


Tire prep is on point.


Bodies, the vette… I got it figured out so I don’t fly it in the air every run but it still feels a bit sketchy during breaking if you don’t go light on the breaks


The Malibu, I have no idea if this body is poor aerodynamically but on the track it’s the most stable thing I have ever run. It does have a blunt nose but the sides are pretty flat and the hood, roof and decklid are flat and allow for a larger amount of air flow which will make downforce.


Switched the vette off the VP and put the Malibu on,


UC gets the Cuda


Magnets all around!! This is the best way to mount a body for SO with tech and BS


Next step? More power! So I sent a motor off to PMT, Talk to them if you want to go faster.


Moving to a 3.5 or am I?


Winning Ratio:

2.4-up 80%

2.2-2.3 15%

2.0-2.1 5%


Avg race winner, 2.2-2.3


Phone in the toilet and how you too can ruin your phone….

Featured Item of the week


1Up racing wheel nuts 12.00

Introducing the new 1up Racing Lockdown M4 Wheel Nuts! Our low-profile serrations feature an oversize outer diameter and narrow inner diameter offering up to 200% more surface area to put your wheels on lockdown! It’s easy to see the difference compared to commonly used wheel nuts which dig into and damage the wheel surface, resulting in excess flex.
