Not good enough. I'm gonna check to find out all the rules. I just started racing 8th scale less than six months ago. I'm a newbie pretty much. Hell, I just found out where our track is a year ago. lol. I'm gonna pit for the friends that will be running in expert. I'll try to get in on the lower class probably. When is the registration deadline? I think I missed it.

You can still sign up at the race. Just sign up in the sportsman class. This is my first time in RC Pro.You will learn alot in these big races.

My new throttle servo should be here today about the time I wake up. I will get another servo for back up for the Pro race. We just had a big storm here this evening/morning and I know our track will have lots of water on it this weekend. Damn. I'm still at the point of trying to drive slow enough to stay together through the whole weekend. I try to practice on thurs, race fri, sat, and sun. Friday and Saturday same track. Sunday is somwhere else. I burn lots of Nitro and parts. lol.

Racing 2 classes can be a serious pain in the rear if something breaks. I'm glad I only run class now. Going to the track is fun again. It was too much like work when running 2 classes IMO.

I had success for a few weeks in a row running my 8 and T4 on the same night. Started to get difficult to keep up with the battery charging. I couldn't keep track of seven batteries and three chargers while trying to help my friends. My brain was really tired. But we have split electric and nitro into different days. But all racing is good.
