Griz- you may already know this, however RC Car Action have linked to this video on youtube! It is mentioned in West Coast Editor Jason Sams' blog post "What should the rules be?".

I thought it was good to see your video referenced by an editor of one of THE major RC car magazines. Your videos are always entertaining, and with the Traxxas Slash in particular, have helped show the excitement and fun found in various RC racing classes.

Default The class has blown up

Yesterday was the 2nd all Slash race they had at n-control. They had so many of them they ended up with a C main. Unreal for a new entry to the R/C scene. Now the Slayer is coming for those of us that don't do electric. Its a strong combination. And basing it on the 2.5 revo means as MT racing winds down in some areas those folks can convert their Revos to Slayers as that class takes hold. MT racing here is spotty. With a strong class of them in SA but not many in Austin. The SA guys aren't into spec racing so I expect the Slayer will be the dominant truck there and the Slash will be the one to have in Austin. Austin lucked out really because another group of people financed the construction of the current Slash track as an oval. When the oval thing, the last big thing to come along, died out they converted it to a 1:10 scale track. I'm heading over to Hobby Express's new track today to check it out. Its also a 1:10 scale track so I expect to see some Slash racing there as well.
