He was 15g underweight at post-tech.

I was thinking the same thing. I played it in slow motion and Tebo definitely hit him to cause him to flip. I don't even think there was enough room for him to squeeze that inside corner without hitting him. Great race though, sucks that Maifield had the bad end of the stick.

Ive seen racers at Club Races stop in an incident like that.........he should have checked up, but he did not even think about it based on the video. I do not think it was a "Hack" since he landed right in the corner, but he would have gotten mad props for waiting.

Actually, Maifield came down on top of Tebo's wheel and did it to himself!

This is coming direct from the racer's who were there!

Hi Don! You been following along on LiveRC? Some exciting racing yesterday, eh!

Just got home from Nitro Challenge. What another great day out at the track. I couldnt stay any longer though...ive got way to much to do and it was just to darn cold lol. Racing was delayed 3 hours this morning and race #1 was crazy....all the buggys getting stuck in the mud. They would take off a jump and land in a mud pit and have to be marshalled out...pretty entertaining. Not sure if I got any good photos of it but if I do I will post one up later

Dirt is for Racing....Pavement is for parking lots.

Love the mud pics!
