Dang it Jai, I don't have any water proof stuff.. only thing that comes close is a Tamiya Rally DF03-Ra .. i used the body of the buggy version as a cover for the tub to seal it.

Come to think of it, maybe we can throw some mud on the parking lot and have a rally class too...

I'm curious, if I'm visiting family in Cuidad Guzman and I have the opportunity to come your way can I come out and try out the track with an Electric 1/8 scale on-road car??

I can't believe this weather. I'll be up in Murrietta visiting family. I'm taking my stuff just in case the weather stays dry. Hopeful thinking.

I'll be there. It cleared up pretty nicely in the afternoon out here on the coast. Storm seems to be moving east and Jai said it hadn't rained in there in Rancho Afrika for the past 4 hrs. I think we'll be OK.

I do think it's going to take some time to get the PMTs up to temperature though. I don't want to spend the $$$ for tire warmers, too dang many other expenses for this addiction.

BTW, I got my refund back from Hobby King, wahoo. Now if those Gens Ace hard case were in stock I'd snag a pair of those. Why is it the stuff I usually want to buy is out of stock?

I'm bringing my Slash "just in case". Oh, and I got a chance to check out one of those Traxxas Ken Block Gymkhana cars, very cool car. I don't know why they call it a 1/16 scale, it's nearly the same size as a 1/10 car.

I could be into racing down there if it all came together but I'm not sure this March will be the right time for me. I don't think I'll have the spare change to swing a trip like that. If it was someplace like Vegas where I could drive to, it would be more likely. Maybe if the economy kicks back into high gear in 2011 .....

I hear you Dan and understand your situation.

Its a once a year reunion for us GT racers around the world, 2010 was in Miami, 2011 will be Mexico City, 2012?

Don't know yet, but for sure it will be run on a world-class dream track too.

Spread the word around, this is an excellent opportunity to really promote GT Electrics in the biggest way possible.

How much do you think a trip like that will cost, and how are you getting your stuff over their are you taking it with you on the plane or sending it ahead of time.

I'd also like to know what others who are coming from the states are budgeting for the trip and how they get their stuff over there. I'm estimating about $1,000 - $1,500 depending on where you stay and how many days you go for. Airfare is running $450-$500 RT right now for those dates LAX to Mexico City.

Well I guess I can rest assured it won't be held in SoCal.

You can really save big $$$ if you fly out of Tijuana and avoid the hassles of going through customs. Just my .02.
