Excellent replies. As noted in OP, it's merely a pet peeve, not really something I'm gonna get hung up on. I started this thread largely to pick your brains. I do feel somewhat disrepected when I've dropped ungodly amounts of time and $ into a hobby, only to see someone kick or "roll with their foot" my gear.However, I also understand the opinions of those that posted it's not a big deal.

Keep the posts coming

I will bust my ass for every car on the track -

And all of you that are scared to marshal and use you hands like you SUPPOSE to - I would love to see you marshall a PRO or INVITE race and kick Tebo, Drake or Mayfield sh!t over........... I will have my popcarn ready.

You dont kick a $1000 car. Trust me, if that happens to you, you will be pissed.

so your car can fly 30-300 feet in the air and roll over ten+ times but kicking it will be the end all damage?

lol



I'm not agreeing we should kick, I use gloves and care and speed!

Just struck me as funny, like our cars are made of crystal

Default re

definitely not the best here but what gripes me is when the marshall takes his time so his buddy can take the lead to the win yes he didnt flip my car but he was right beside it and his buddy was 2 turns back,and the golden rule should be he whom flips first gets turned over first unless at the bottom of a pile up

As for using the feet...it's a dirty, toxic, dangerous car where some drivers keep it WOT until you flip them back on their wheels....feet don't hurt!!!
retarded
if a guy at my track goes wide open while upside down i dont marshal it easy as that either get the fuck off the trottle or stay on your lid.

i wear mechanics gloves and often have to Marshall pros but when they flip and go tubbling they are standing on it doing everything to keep the darn thing on the wheels....hell i normally stand on one side of the track at all times on of our layouts had a big double in my section i cought a few cars in mid air headed right at me and tossed em back on the track....

its all in awareness!

thats funny
because the ft b44 he has is more expensive brand new then a d8 kit brand new.

pricing wise the d8 is the cheapest to build car
and i am pretty sure he has a 2.0b
the losi mugen ae are all above 400 to 500 bucks price wise dont leave out kyosho like 1000 a kit.

Default Awareness is the key!

During the ROAR region 11 championship this year in Canby Oregon a marshaller flipped my son's truggy over after a pile up and wasn't paying attention to what he was doing. My sons car was positioned nose against the end barrier. everyone was screaming at him to turn it around. My kid was trying to get his attention with the car but he was unable to rev too much because he was wheels down. I was marshalling on the other end of the track and was about ready to run across and flip it myself but I didnt want to abandon my post because I was on a section that had a hell of a lot of crashes and I was extremely busy. Anyway, my kid lost about an additional 10 seconds. I dont think it cost him a win, but I'm pretty sure he could have gotten third instead of fourth (which is still very respectable considering this is his 1st racing season). The crash wasn't necessarily my son's fault but, hey that's racing! I give credit to the marshallers.
During that very race, one of the marshallers broke his ankle very badly. The next weekend we were having our track's last race of the points series where I finished 2nd for the season (my son finished 1st), anyway the older gentleman who broke his ankle wasn't able to come to the final to marshall or even watch for that matter. His son was there and neither race but they volunteer marshall , I got a nice spektrum hat as one of my prizes and gave it to the kid to give to his dad since he wasnt there and I was appreciative for him volunteering to marshall all season.

well ill break it down, its a losi 8 2.0 buggy.


here is what is in it.

losi aluminum servo horn 8.50


it is the rtr version-650

i changed the shock caps-30

the front knuckles-40

front spindles 45

common sense lipo-35

novak 5a regulator- 25

2 jr 9100 servos 119 each

king headz motor mount-50

new body -30

1,151.50-total

plus i have the clutch service kit, both f/r spring sets

spare air filter set with an outer filter cover.

so add another 150 into the package.

total-1,301.50

so its about a 1000 dollar ride. when it has a new chassis, and the smart diffs, and new engine, then it will be upwards toward the 1500-1800 dollar mark.

none if this includes tires and fuel

How do you loose a finger marshaling? kicking a car for me is an insult, i always grab the car and put it in her 4 tires, i expect the same. If you encounter a flipped truggy or buggy and the driver don't let the gas you simply don't touch the car until the driver applies the brake, grab the car from the wing flip it and voilá!!!

I dont care what kit you build - it cost a 1000 of more to get it running with good stuff - I dont think you will break it by kicking it, but over the last 20 years - you will be surprised at how many people F up and kick to hard or to soft. the Sure thing is to use you hands

plus again - you will not see a Pro do that

u can try and kick my dog, but don't come crying if he ripps your foot, leg and something else off.......

as I said, it's one of those topics that will have valid arguments on why do it or why not, as most of things in life just use common sense......

I didnt read everyones posts. But I hate it as well. Not b/c they are using their feet, but b/c slower when they miss. Yea I know its my fault for messing up, but I dont need someone using their feet, when instead they can use their hands and do it properly. I wouldnt have yelled for him using his feet, but would have pulled him aside and tell him not to.
