Biged - Sweet. Come say hi!

nobike - Too funny.

Horatio - That's the idea, anyway.

Mabuchi - Sorry, I've been busy getting packed for this week.

To all:

I'm leaving in the morning, for the Silver State Nitro Challenge in Boulder City, Nevada. I'll be home Monday.

It's supposed to be about having fun. NOTHING else!
My intrduction to R.C. was simple......Racing motocross for year's....got to old and started to take to long to get up off the ground..It's bad when the know you by name at the hospital......Retired,A friend called me over to show me the coolest thing....How about a Gold Rc10 with a mod onboard!!!!

Needless to say,4 battery packs later and after i knocked the front end off the thing.Nasty curb'sLOL!!
Anyway a hour later at the LHS while buying parts for his car i got my first kit!!!

Talk about hook line and Sinker..........I dont care to mention how many kit's or Dollar's iv'e spent since,I love every minute of it ......I'm just trying to figure how ill keep enjoying this Great Sport on Social Security!! LOL!

I was at my first TRACK the next weekend!!!!!!!!!

Motocross is definitely more painful than RC!

I used to race a Yamaha 125 when I was MUCH younger. All my friends broke bones, so I count myself lucky. But it's fun while it lasts....

Racing model cars is super addictive though.

I separated my shoulder a couple years ago on a Yamaha 125 at the young age of 39. Still ride a lot but on a 4-stroke.

I just started racing 1/8th scale buggy and that's definately addicting.

Ow! That's gotta hurt.

Racing 1/8th buggy is awesome, but just be careful while you're marshalling. Especially with your run of luck! Avoid the marshalling points that are next to big air jumps!

It's an unusual move. Both Losi and Kyosho have alot of combined silverware between them and business is business. Perhaps there's some additional moves between Losi & Kyosho besides their choice of drivers.

Spiral fracture of the left humorous. What you cant see is the 3 pieces that broke off and floated in there. I got nerve damage, and had a paralyzed left arm for 7 months while i learned to move my fingers and hand again. On top of that, the daily physical therapy to stretch my arm out straight again was almost as bad as getting a 3 mile ride on the back of a quad as the my adrenaline wore off and the pain started to come into play.
