Getting a late start this morning....I guess I'm just getting old. Today will be the Tjet Super Stock Eliminations. That is the biggest Class at 29 cars so I want to get that one out of the way first. There are a lot of close times and it should be some good racing. Even with only running that one Class, it will be a long day. I still need to print and populate the ladders so it will still be a little while before cars are running. Bear Creek is running well and the new power supplies are solid. I will be posting the ladder in the next hour. Thank you to everyone for all the good words!
Congratulations to our Top Qualifiers Comet and Dave632!! Those cars are super fast as well as the two runner ups Mazda and Alpink!
We may have some added excitement at some point during the day via satellite as Skillet's Monster Truck "Siracha" will be crushing some cars for all of us to enjoy. I have left it up to him to post whenever he is ready.
Good luck everyone!

Congratulations to everyone for some great qualification runs. Super job Jeff, it's appreciated by all of us!
Yes, the gears are different. Somewhere I read that the overall ratio is about the same as a Tjet with a 9t pinion. Can’t necessarily confirm the accuracy of that since I didn’t try to do the math myself to verify.
Went ahead and ordered 2 of just to see if they will be good drag racers. Wish they were available with the 5.5ohm arms!
** I was able to get Gnome's Willys and Gibbo61's Falcon repaired and in the show . They will be moved to the bottom of the ladder.
** I accidentally printed a 30 car ladder instead of 29. The #3 Qualifier would have raced the #30 so I just deleted the #30 line as you can see. It did not change how it would have run and I did not want to print all of those names again. FYI.
Here we go.......

Congratulations to Comet and Mazda for those great qualifying times in T Jet SS. . Should make a fantastic final if they both get that far. AL the 49 MPH speed you ran in the Mountain Motor class is terrific, I thought my 40 MPH car was fast. If both cars make it that should also be a super final. ETs were only a few thousandths apart. I am pretty sure my 4GU will survive as I put stock magnets in them and they were only running in the 20 MPH range. The only chance I have there is opponent breakage. Jeff your track with the new power supplies seems to be performing very well.
