Once... at the Nitro Invitational last year. Mine was the silver car that was yellow and purple on the bottom... errr... I mean the yellow and purple car that spent most of it's time upside down.

That huge off-camber turn was one of the most entertaining things I've ever seen... and that huge jump in the back... your wheels would stop spinning by the time you were coming down, so hitting the brakes wouldn't do anything to bring the nose down! That was a fun track layout... I can honestly say that is the best time I've ever had at any race.

Cool. Paul puts on a good race program and he's absolutely hilarious. Ron TQ'd so we hid his car, told him it was in tech, sent him to see Paul... Paul told him it was over at Mike Battaile's pit area... Mike sent him to the other end of the track...

We'll be back for the last Nitro Invitational race this year I'm sure... camp, cook out, and race... drink beer at night... what could be better? I'm running truggy now though.

I thought your screenname looked familiar.

I was racing last weekend and N-control in sportsman buggy,

I run a losi buggy with a red flamed body and purple headed engine(novarossi) you mighta seen it tumbling after that huge back jump (gotta remember to NOT turn the wheel while in the air) I lookforward to racing you in the future since you'll also probably be running sportsman buggy.

Thats why I said save and buy it later. A good radio is worth the money instead of getting a "cheap" one for now...

The Airtronics MX-3 FHSS is a good readio especially for the price. It has all the features a racer needs.

I have been teaching my young son about the hobby and I have him driving a Cen Matrix RTR I had lying around. I bought this radio because it wasn't too expensive and I didn't want to have to worry about crystals once my son's driving skills are good enough for the track.

I'm not that good of a driver either so I guess it's like the blind leading the blind right now.
