I watched one of our Xray sponsored guys flog an MBX5RR and a Losi 8ight the other night, needless to say I was impressed and realized that even the older cars are more than I need. It's all marketing, they win when you think you must have the newest car even when they know you won't be any faster, they get your money, and you feel better so everybody wins.

Results speak for themselves, but only in the right hands...

If a product works and it wins, it says something about both the product and the one with the thumbs controlling it.

I'll wear a sponsors tshirt and cap, i'll race said equipment. And inbetween all that help others when they ask or I see they could use some help, then i'll go home.

Yes, i've come across haters but they're not hating on me or who I represent, they're just jealous, or stupid to talk smack, or both and I will have no hesitation in walking away from those types of people who have a very negative energy.

For the people that need help, well i'll do what I can.

We all know the guys who are talking smack are the ones who can't race, right? Rise above it and free yourself from the negative energy.

Look at it like this...

Anyone can talk smack, results from a product come with effort!

I don't like the guy either he's abit 2 faced

Then team guys making all these goof threads trying to talk this crap up they shouldn't do that. One of the worst thing you can do in a open forum. Thats fine in your own forum on your own website.

Number one thing factroy guys will always say how great there product is thats there job. So when they talk in a open forum you can't take it at face value went they talk up a product.
I do not recall anyone ever saying we tested the Caster for 2 years. It would be nice for you to try to clarify that. What was probably said was that Dustin Peckham did the first 1/8 conversion to a Losi in Sept 2005 proven in RC Car action forums. He has been testing brushless systems for over 5 years and was racing 1/8 electric over 2 years.

Just for the record, Dustin is not an employee or owner of Caster USA or Caster Racing, so if your rants are directed at him, please desist in your comments immediately. If you have a personal problem with me (casterracingusa) let me know what it is. Dustin is a friend of mine and he is trying to help grow the name.

Yes, his D8 rocked. A little twitchey on the jumps and could use more power but I think I'd be a full second faster with that car. I will get my RC8 dialed in like that.......oh yes..... I will.

Chainsaw, now that name fits! Got to get his CEN fixed.

Who's running a Caster at the track? When you getting your extras together?
I need to test for a backup car.





Oh, and some product bashing can be fun if its done to be fun. I'd hate to not be able to say "Stinkey Mugen." to my RC8 every time it deos whatever.
