Frank what are your thoughts on how the Durango performed for you at the Pit? Did you get a chance to talk with Ryan or Reno about their cars?

And then there's the special thanks JQ himself gave to me during the a main intro. What a guy. Hope to see you back in this area. BTW I let the girls keep the shirts they seemed real attached to them.

SUPER DUPER thanks for the everything buddy, Wouldn't know what i would have done on Saturday night without ya.

PS Thx for the Laughs All weekend about the Plan, Ill never forget the expression on you know who's face when the girls asked him if he wanted .....you know what.... Classic.

The dnx cars I drove performed very well. I was in one main higher than last year and there were 2 more mains than last year so I think I did well. The e converted car drives a little easier than the nitro car. Idk why. But I did move the shocks to the outter lower hole on the arm in the front and it handeled better. The other thing I learned is that the blue springs that come in the kit are garbage and need to go there. They are different than the option blue springs and that made a huge difference. Ryan also helped us with parts support. My buddy went through the parts I had and needed one more. That last front hinge pin brace was because he didn't replace the inner and it was bent too. A cement wall will do that to it. I did not break a single part on any of my cars 2 dingos a 6t and slash 4x4. I like the Durango buggy and I think I fared well with it but I'm no pro driver. I'm not to happy about the bad kit springs. The only other car I would consider trying is a Mugen 6. But for now I'll stick with the dingos.

And nick you are very welcome.

yes Vik running HB.

He showed up and played the bump game. did well in Truggy, not so much in buggy, but the track at that point wasn't very fast.

He had school that couldn't be missed.
