Default Kicking myself in the A$$ for not going to the Manufacturers Cup!

A few guys I race with are racing sportsman and making the Amain at the manufacturers cup... I wouldn't have thought we (here in Boise) were that fast... I should have went

Good for them though, hopefully one of them wins so I can hit em up for free Losi stuff

After its over, and those racers (Non-Tire sponsored) are going to wish they didn't go. By looking at the track and the way they prepped it, it going to be a VERY bad tire eater. I see a $300.00 - 500.00 tire bill for guyz who want to be competitive...


Cool looking track, but with the suger they put down, and the type of dirt, it's rock hard now..

Oh there ready for that. But really it isn't that much running. Not to mention they had a sale on pro-lines at the LHS there. The guys I race with probably have about 3 sets of tires to go through.

Isn't it? My buddy that races an RC8 said he 'shattered' a hinge pin landing in the marshal area off of it.

You can run slicks on that track. Almost looks smooth as asphalt.
