Cool video. I've yet to hit a track with that kind of pit station. Sweet!

Nice video. Too bad you didn't get a shot of the little mini tornado that picked up some of the tents and threw them around in the parking lot. Never saw anything like that in my life. The action was as hot on the track as it was outside.

Wow, awesome pictures. Never saw anything like it a on a perfectly sunny day. By the time I got back to the pits, the little "tornado" was behind the drivers stand on the other track. It wrecked the guys tent next to me and put a hurtin on the tent I was under. Other tents 15 feet away weren't bothered. That thing was on a Losi hunt. Actually, I think it was after us Americans that came to race since must of us were pitted there. Next time I'm parking near the track regulars.

For some reason these mini twisters love to hit Matt's track and on race day! At last years race there was one that took some tents with it also. The only difference between this years and last was that last year the mini twister picked up some dust so it was fully visible... its amazing the power a 4foot twister has!! I'll see if I can find the pics and post them!

Geat video!!!! Way to not overdue it with the soundtrack. The allure of nitro is the sound of the engines. Slowmo was really cool, nice pit shot.

Ive always tried to use the original audio from the video I shoot, but most of the time when editing the slow-mo shots the audio gets distorted and sounds like crap...
I either turn down the audio or just turn it off, during the slow-mo, keeps the flow going without thinking, "What the hell was that sound!" LOL...

Thanks Alot For Watching, Much Appreciated!!

Our next race is at Hardcore RC Racers Club in Flamborough, Ont. hopefully I can get some good shots next weekend!

I like the slo-mo footage of the marshal waiting for traffic to clear before heading out for the truggy. I like it because that's exactly what if feels like on the stand! It seems to be an eternity before you're back on your wheels and you get to watch half the field pass you in the mean time

What days do they race there, and how close is it to Niagra Falls Canada? I'm at the falls until sometime tomorrow. Anybody have an address or directions to the track here?
Thanks : )
