rlTanner,
I am sure I will see all of you guys there, just might not know who is who. I know so far 5 of us from Reno will be heading down to run. I have ran against Phil Atondo is Sac and its not even close. I have a couple of modded 367's to try out there, I have been reading up on that and hope its what I want out of a motor. If not, well I will have to get more from my sponser. VISA. LOL.

Ditto.
I think they are probably getting the track ready to be reworked for the race. Hopefully someone will post something up.

I didnít stop by the track this weekend, but from what Toby said on S-Grid they added three monitors in pit lane and took down the radio impound shelving that was on the back of the driverís stand. I donít know if youíve ever been to this track, but that will make a lot more room to get on and off the stand between races. Should be pretty cool. It doesnít sound like the actual track rebuild had started as of Saturday though.

Track will not be rebuilt until the week before the race. Yes we added 3 monitors in pit lane and took out the radio impound. It will be alot better!!!!

I ran Toby's truggy in November and preferred Bow Ties (M2) over the holeshots. More steering with the Bow Ties. I am still going to have a set of all.

Three weeks to go and I hope to have my motors back any time now. Any one run the Panther Gators on a truggy there? Was thinking of bringing a set. Also should a parts run be needed is there a shop close, I think I have plenty of parts but one never knows.

Another thing I need to ask, what are the guys running the 8ight buggy and truggy running for a clutch bell? 13 or 14 tooth. I am kind of stuck between the two and am looking for a good starting point. Thanks
