Worlds Saturday Clips -- Video

Here we go with this years World Finals held at LiteSpeed Raceway in San Antonio for the third year in a row. This year we had a pair of Aussies join us for our little gathering. They are a quick pair these two. With world record pace out of their r/c dragsters. The rain added to the drama as Kip and crew had to dry the track a few times and clean up after what looked like a hurricane went through the place Sat night. But by 1pm or so everything was ready. Unfortunately the director of the IMDRA decided he wanted to go home so he called the race. Through the generous pockets of some of the locals and manufacturers a fairly large cash purse was raised and the race continued as a Cash Dash race. Plenty of action even though some of the long distance racers decided to head on home. Anyways here is some video of the proceedings Saturday. Qualifying day.

They are fast

Try and follow one with a camera Its not easy. Very sporting I always love to try and get them on tape. After one run on those electric beasts the rear tires are demolished. I'll have some pics on the next vid. I mean shredded. One of the races on this vid had an exploding tire. When the car goes over center then jerks back to the left. His tire just blew off. And the Rainman's wicked 180 landing on the side then going up right to power through the finish. Not the best time but I've never seen it happen before.

Working on the Sunday Vid today

I have about the same amount of tape from Sunday. I'll be turning that into a video today and possibly tomorrow. Think I'll take the weekend off and finish up the Tx RCPRO stuff from SA so next weekend I'll be all caught up and ready to video the finals.

Top Kick Video

Absolutely outstanding Griz. Excellent grip work.

I'll be sending this off to Novak. Think I'll just send them this link. They can download the video on their end. Need to go back in to get the minutes/seconds mark where you got video of the R4E. Really had to drive the car in that qualifier ! So happy you got that particular run on video !

I can't tell you what a great positive image this is for rc drag racing. Thanks again Griz.

Mongo. My car, the black Novak rail Griz panned ran in the 1.95sec-2.02sec range at 61-63mph all four qualifiers. You can see there were lots faster than mine. 1.2sec at 104mph was the norm in extreme class.

Don't watch all day now

Don't watch all day and get in trouble like this one guy did on youtube. His wife couched his butt for watching my videos all day instead of mowing

Download complete. Again, excellent grip work, Griz. Especially like the sound tracks. Most appropriate.

God Bless and stay safe. See you trackside next season.

Glad you like them

They turned out pretty good. I'm sure the Sunday one would have been better had the race not been canceled. Hopefully there will be a Worlds to go to next year. If not LiteSpeed has plenty of events each year. I might not miss it that much. And I'm probably going to go to RCX this year as I have a place to stay and food The MHRA guys will be putting on an exhibition race and I'll do my best to make sure it makes the live broadcast. If not I'll cover it myself and make vids when I get home.

I have never been the least bit interested in drag racing, but that looked crazy fun. Good job on the videos.
