just beautiful Rob, thank you.

Jay Bless, I'm glad you liked the track. Alot of hard work went into it from a handful of guys.

Props to Richie Stine of R.B. Stine Excavating for all the skid loader work. The guy is one with that machine.

Same problem with the KO 2.4 system. You had to turn it on outside or in another room so it would find a channel and stay locked on it's channel. With the amount of Futaba's and other 2.4 systems there the KO system would not work. I guess the KO system is JUNK Makes me glad i've bought 4 rx's and wasted so much money on their stuff to go to a big race and it doesn't even work

Yup thats what happened.

Like a dummy I modded the module into my radio so I doubt I can send it in for repair either.

I was told its a problem with the module and that the ones with green stickers were the problem and the pink and blue ones were OK.

If you werent dumb like me you can probably just send it to KO for repair.

Jason Ashton is a cool dude. He was willing to do whatever to help keep things moving along. He also gave me some pointers on getting the mains started in a way that everyone is ready and knows what to do, for the most part. Nice job Tony. I rolled out at 6:30. It took everything just to walk to the truck. I'm feeling it today but it was all worth it.

Qual points are in my opinion the most effective way to run qualifying for many obvious reasons. There is simply a misconception as to how it all works.

I do agree that the track was every bit of challenging, I loved every minute of track time i got on it!
i see what you are saying..in the first round i ran 7 in 552.
2nd round i ran 7 in 538
and i flamed out in the 3rd round...got back out but finished with 6 in 501.

its all good i guess....
