I shatterd my left wrist and broke my right forearm clean back in 94 racing SX in Naples. Picked up an RC10T while I was healing. Sold the bike and stayed with RC for the next 16 years. Taken a break here and there to ride some Hare Scrambles for a season or so and raced a shifter kart for a year (BEST TOY EVAR ). Always end up back with a transmitter in my hand somehow thou.

I live a rural area in South FL and this bastard has built a sweet outdoor MX track on a 10 acre parcel across the street from my house.

That's like putting a meth lab in a tweakers front yard and telling him he can look but dont touch

I'm the local dude in the wheelchair as a result from racing MX and our homie is the other local guy that lost his leg racing MX If you think that's messed up, you should hear the comments on the drivers stand come race day.

I do miss the series travel a bit though, but next season I might run the NC State Series to get that feeling back. Nothing like driving 4+ hours to get to the track while getting stuck in traffic and panicking the whole way thinking you will miss your moto. haha Gets you ramped up for the day in a hurry!
HaHa motogod, Ya know out here in NorCal we have a outdoor series going and we have actually traveled 4hrs to one race and 2 1/2 to another. But I hear ya on traveling around the states for moto events. Definately good stuff

i am sorry to hear that you are in a wheelchair and that your buddy lost his leg do to moto. it seems that you two make the best of it. As for me i am on day 10 of of 2.5 months worth of crutches. and only being out of the hospital three days now i have completely torn down my RC8T and cleaned and refilled everything, now i just need to find something to do for the next 65 days. My buddy said he might take me out to the test track for some rc practice. i cant wait.

Killer thread, I raced for 10 years, even ran a few Arena Cross races even though I sucked. Like everyone else, getting too old and too many injuries. I lived down the road from Kevin Windham and used to ride with him all the time when he was home. I got to meet a lot of big name pros over at Kevins. It was pretty cool to roll up his driveway and see a Semi in his driveway.
It seems like MX and RC is a natural progression, it requires some of the same mindset with far less injuries.

I know Jeff Alessi is pretty serious in RC racing and post here frequently during the off season. I've talked to him a couple of times here.

Don't be sorry. Chicks dig it, I get good parking, and I don't have to wait in line at DMV.
