If it wasn't the same week as RC Pro here, I'd be all in. (I have other motivations to come up there anyway...)

I think they usually go off the big wood jump for the jumping contest. The jumping contest is Sunday night though, so no worry of wrecking your car before the race. Kendall is coming.

I think I am more excited to meet Ryan than the racing itself! Last year was a blast! Looks like Team Kyosho will be representing at least 4-5 drivers!

Bring some of your work, ChickenFarmer! You've got mad skillz!
