Race Reporter: Vin Nocella
Racers were in attendance from all over the Northeast; New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, and Connecticut were all represented. I was able to put my great qualifying (TQ’s in 2wd Mod and Truck Mod, 2nd in 4wd) to use in the mains. I pulled a clean sweep for the weekend taking the win home in all 3 classes.
JConcepts products used:
2wd - 0050 B4 Hi Flow Body, Hi Downforce 7' wing, Ball cups (tire choice varied
Truck - 0062 T4 Hi Flow Body, Ball cups (tire choice varied)
4wd - 0061 B44 Hi Flow Body, Hi Downforce 7' wing, Ball cups (tire choice varied)
The track was originally billed as a Green compound Double Dee track. I can understand why the locals would favor them as they offer consistent bite and good wear. I did find however that with a slightly stiffer carcass and indoor specific compound the cars (truck) yielded faster times. I switched over to Gold Bar Codes on the truck in the rear with other fronts and that turned out to be the best combination for that vehicle. I also tested Gold Bar Codes on the buggy and 4wd.
