That's really cool that you've set that up! I bet the non-racers (..and obviously the racers) that show up will LOVE that! It's that kind of stuff they should have been doing at the Worlds this year. Hundreds of people sitting around between races with nothing to do and nowhere to even buy any R/C stuff.

Really bummed that I can't come down for this race. Was looking forward to hanging with Alex and Flyin Ryan from Mod Hobbies again.

Alright guy's,

For 2 months now Alan Burton and Adam Drake of team Losi have been working on designing a Losi 2.0 buggy that could set a guinness world record for jumping the longest distance and landing it without crashing. They have been working with the enginners at losi to develop a car that would approach speeds of 70 mph and have the right suspension package to withstand the impact of the takeoff and landing without upsetting the car. Well, at Losi anything is possible and it appears after 2 months of work they have done just that. They will be using a losi 2.0 chassis with a newly designed 40 tooth spur gear and 20 tooth clutch bell. A new rear wing has been designed to accommodate for the increase in speed. Losi hard XBT tires with firm Foams, Nitrotane 30% fuel and a GRP .28 highly modified motor and pipe will provide the power. The losi is capable of speeds in excess of 70 mph so it will be something to see when these cars hit the ramp.

Alan approached me some time ago and wanted to know if we could build a ramp that would get them the distance. Well you know the answer to that and what better race to do the jump than the Psycho Nitro Blast. The jump will take place during friday practice at 3pm outside of the arena on the access road. The PNB will be building a seperate drivers stand and constructing the ramp that will send Burton and Drake the distance. The ramp will be roughly 4 feet high and 24 feet in length. Its going to be ONE BIG RAMP!

It is free for anyone to come and watch. You will not want to miss this, it is sure to be one heck of a spectacle. If you know Alan Burton and Adam Drake, they will be shooting for 200ft plus. We are very excited to see these guys go for it and you know at the PNB, Nothing is ever to big or crazy enough!!!!!



I cannot wait to see this youtube video.....I want to see that baby fly!

Good luck Alan and Adam, I really hope you stick the landing and set the record.

Caster guys, bring a camera for me...we have something to shoot for for 2010....
