Malaysia sir.... specifically Balok,Kuantan,Pahang.(use google earth...you'll find it )

into buggy since onroad is almost extint in my area.

i started offroad buggy bashing on 010807.
i bashed at my buddy's motocross track..
he( the track owner ) said that my previous ( M brand ) buggy would not even make half of his jump.......
to make the story short..i cleared all of the jumps and bumps in my very first ever buggy bashing session there and shut all of those offroad bikers mouth .. now some of the offroad biker is planning to buy 1/8 buggy of their own in this near future... .
even the track owner asked me to organise 1/8 offroad buggy/truggy race at his track after the completion of the driver stand... but to organise race we at kuantan pahang still need to learn more but who knows...maybe early next year

Thanks Alan!

Received the parts today! WOW, that was fast. This is the kind of customer support/service that will keep me a customer and an advocate of OCM!!!!

Saw Tony Newland driving. Didn't get a chance to talk with him. But I'm sure there'll be time tomorrow between qualifiers.

Thanks again!

Default Summer Shootout

Well guys, we had a good weekend at the Summer Shootout 2007. As
usual the fast guys from georgia, TN, FL, Bama, AK, and MS showed up
for some great racing. It was a Very hot couple of days but we
survived! This race was our first race with the OCM Truggy. It
qualified 2nd to Southeast "Ace" Ryan Lopez. Ryan had his XRAY really
going. I think Aaron was 6 seconds off of Ryans best run and looked
Really well througout the day. We ended up casing a cross tie and that
ended our race First broken piece in 3 gallons of testin on the
proto! I think we are almost ready.
In a buggy field of right at 40 I was second overall to Ryan as well,
3 seconds off his pace. This is in my opinion the highest level of
competition to gather in Alabama with exception to the Indoor race. We
had a 30 minute main to run and the track was rutted and rough with a
fairly fast/technical layout. From the start to the finish Ryan and I
battled back and forth. We had a huge crowd trackside which I'm sure
Ryan would agree that it was only fueling the fire! My OCM was
very fast and was a charm to drive and pulled me throught the
entire 30 minute main no problem as a matter of fact I only cleaned
the car all day..no wrenching! At last! I was in the lead with one lap
to go and stuffed it in the pipe which allowed Ryan to take the win by
a couple of seconds. I was just as happy with a race like that
regardless. I think we both said that was the hardest we have both
been pushed in a long time.
Everyone had a great time and Joe Horton did a great Job again! All
The OCM cars did very well and had zero issues. I should have some
pics and a video of the main soon!

Just to add my .02 to racing held this weekend....

The Colorado State Nitro Championships were held this past weekend. Up to this point I had only raced/driven my OCM one time. I'm a truggy guy. Everyone tells me how difficult buggies were to drive that I stayed away from them.

This weekend, I qualified 2nd in the Sportsman Buggy class. I'm not a sponsored driver, just "joe average" racer and had basically zero problems with the OCM. The only problem I encountered was self-induced. I had forgotten the washer on the front shock which had it pop-off half way through one round of qualifying. The OCM handled so well, I kept driving and managed to TQ that particular round!

Overall my experience with the DT-19 was great! I can't wait to race it again!
