So if you want to run with very good competition and many GT racers you won't be disappointed if you attend this race. Hope to see many of you there.
We'll be there running all 3 classes!

It's nice too see that your coming back this year, Mark it was good racing with you last year. It's also nice to see Desoto racing coming back and running all classes. I here there are some east coast guys coming. This race looks like it could be turning out to have an awesome turnout for GT.

That would be awesome Pit-racer, I forgot to mention Leisure Hours has indoor pitting with air condition, no need to bring anything but your race equipment.

Gonna aske again real quick: there must be a few of you looking to offload your DM-1's to get the new Serpent or whatever, so anybody that has any extra clutch-bells and pinions, I'm still after some...

Mine is turning into one of the worst RC's I've had.. Was just in trying to get the engine out to check the CB bearings which I have become paranoid about, and two(!!) engine bolts stripped.. We're in the midst of moving, so all my dremel bits are god knows where... Then there's the utter lack of European parts availability, and no shop in the US even seems to have reasonable 1.) prices , 2.) availability of all the few little bits I need and 3.) shipping prices all in one shop..

Have too much invested in it though to give up.. But jeeze it's been a PIA so far. All revolving around the CB too..(oh yeah, that wasted Ä60 I spent on the Kyosho bell that doesn't even fit any of the five clutches I've tried...)

Anyway...

Thatís a pretty nice hi-end Rally Game chassis.

Donít think any shops inventory or support it here in the USA, you might have better luck locating it in Portugal, Spain, the UK or Italy.
