Yeah I know,

You missed the Harvest too. LOL. Been taking some time off. A few of the guys are trying to get me to hit the winter series. I dunno though. I made a deal with the devil, I mean wife, that after the Harvest I'd cut the racing for the rest of the year. We'll see though. I haven't done anything since the Harvest. Truck is cleaned, well sort of, and I haven't done much else to it. I even have the airfilter on it from the Harvest. LOL.

The winter series starts dec 11th. Just take your drop on the first race and then race the rest of them in 2011. Problem solved. Do it!!! lol

I had a truggy and traded it in for a buggy.

The truggy is more forgiving and versatile, but I like the sharpness and responsiveness of a buggy.

just seems more like a rocket and accurate

Thanks Dave,

We'll see how it goes. You never know, I just may show up just to piss her off. LOL. Really I'd like to, but with work no being the best right now, I don't know how many I could make.

Sportsman is a thing of the past. We missed you in Bend, couldn't run the mains due to rain, but it was great racing anyway.

I agree. I race truggy and buggy. If I had to pick one that I could race it would be the truggy. More forgiving, looks way cooler on the track. But..... A fast buggy racer who races a truggy will almost always beat a truggy only guy. Buggy teaches you how to drive. When I first drove a truggy for the first time ever, it was motorama this past year. I finished 5th overall out of like 100 in my class. I just couldnt believe how easy it was to drive. It was like cheating after racing a buggy for so many years. But I took off a like 3 month break from buggy and raced only my mbx6t. But when I went back to racing buggy my skills were terrible. I couldnt make it around the track a lap with out crashing. So to sum this up, A guy who races buggy then moves to truggy will be lightning fast with a truggy. But its hard to move back to buggy after racing truggy for a while
