They were cheap $5 chairs that were ripped and torn, so I wasn't going to cause any trouble over them. Someone talked to the track owner and he didn't want to do anything about it. I couldn't just go and tell them to leave myself.

I have recently started going racing only with wifey so she can watch my stuff in the pits.
maybe if you post your paypal account people can send small donations as gift to help replace the stuff i could throw a buck or two and if enough people throw a buck or two you would be in
Same here i barely bought my first new buggy and it was a d8, I couldnt imagine a mugen and serpent being taken from me with full race gear, i would want to kill someone.

Yeh pay pal would be nice maybe we can get some donations to these guys to help them get started back up!

Sorry to hear about this. I'm also sorry to hear racers sound so dumb. They almost sound as dumb as the people doing the stealing.

I was there Sunday at the JBRL an heard about the cars being taken. Talking to a group of guys we started thinking it might be some racers who are stealing the RC stuff, you would'nt think nothing if a racer was carring a car,radio, or pitbag out

yeah but normal jbrl racers are carying and cool and most understand that this hobby is not cheap and care about other peoples stuff. When i went to jbrl to pit for friends i was helping anyone and mashaling during practice. These drivers have trust in people and when stuff like this happens it makes racers not want to run at events because its hard to TRUST fellow drivers. Also if it was a driver it would happen a bit more than once, might not be everytime but im sure it would happen one every other time or so not 2 in one day.

James



Please PM me with further details on this James, I travel ALL too often and dont have anything on my gear and would have some peace of mind if I did.



On a side note....GUYS POST PICTURES....a body is something that a Dumb crook might not even Think Twice about including in a sale as they might not know how much effort goes into painting a body, If its A RTR body( I know it isn't) but its something ALL us racer's have and could help get the crooks if someone spots the body.

This really hit a nerve as I've personally been "racially profiled" and have been arrested in front of my kids, family, and friends, because I supposedly looked like another Mexican who had committed a crime the night before in a city of 2+ million. I had to wait for 2 hours in a cop car until a teller I.D.'d me and said "not even close". By the way I was born in the US and am excercising my freedom of speech... Sorry for being off topic, but I couldn't stay quiet.
i understand!...i am a JUGGALO!...we get profiled all the time...i didnt say it,but sorry or the mexican remark...it happens all to many times just cause i dont dress like an outstanding citizen!...but like i said,dont take it to the heart!..HE PROBALLY DIDNT MEAN TO OFFEND YOU!

I will start a thread with the insurance info. I have gotten a few PM's asking about it and now seems like a good time to post it. Our hobby shop was broken into and robbed of $5000 worth of kits on Friday morning so I am ready To take a stand. We are a community of hundreds of thousands so we should all stick together and let these lowlife scumbags know that if the want to Try and steal from us they better be ready to pay the price!!
