If you need those arms before this weekend you better set something up with me or get them from me Sat. at the track.

They are great guys though, good hobby reps in general.
I see guys in my game that say they are "sponsored by" but what does that mean? They don't show up in the factory adds?
Maybe they got a discount, maybe they know a guy who back doored a car or some parts. That still makes them posers if they claim to be sponsored.

back in the late 80s I knew a guy at a motor co. and he was into bikes too. I was pretty fast and all the sudden I had more motors than I knew what to do with. Did that mean I "sponsored" IDK? I didn't have any requirements for signage, or race schedule.

Nice...Jesse has a thick skin.He can take it.Jaime is struggling so bad right now.About 10 of us were practicing at Norcal yesterday and we were all trying to help him get his car to work.He threatened yesterday to put his brand new 415 that he got for free, away and bring out his BD because he can't make it work.Does Yokomo America take welfare cheese as payment,because if they don't Jaime is not getting a BD5 any time soon.

Bro, it really doesnt matter who is sponsored or who isnt....Its not that big of a deal....Most companies make you sign a contract before they pick you up...

I don't know about bending corners or crystal park but OCRC looks like high desert, nasty bumpy parking lot across a drainage.

Also the Ventura County Roadrunners. They just repaved, repainted and traction is very good, VERY smooth, only 2-3 bumps that are visible. Traction is only going up from what I hear. Its also a bigger track than quite a few other electric tracks in socal.

Crystal Park is mainly a nitro track.
