One way or another. If the Pan shows by Friday, I'll install radio and run it.

If not, I'll toss the sedan on the track.

But I am hoping my new (to me) P8C shows in time.

A big thank you to Lon Sr. for all his help this weekend , during my Pan Car debut. All though I only got to make a couple pit stops in the Main, I had a great time racing this weekend. I improved every qualifier, getting more confidant with the car. But I found that my new found confidence had a down side, and that was some brushes with the WALL. I love this car!
Even though I didn't finish the race I thought I did pretty good for my first
time out with the car. And Ned I smiled all the way home. all 6 hours!!

Lon Sr with his TQ trophy and P8C with the cheater body installed.


Lon III working hard but looking pretty relaxed. I don't recall when I started getting nervous while racing but I don't think I was ever relaxed enough to rest my radio on the railing.


Lon III's P8C with a legit body anyone can get.


Noah getting some stick time as the europeans call it.


Noah firing up his machine for battle again.

I thought you did great for your first outting with the car. Once you get that kit shock oil out of there and get some 500wt oil it will be dialed.

Good for you Dave! Glad you had a good time!

I really don't think you can compare a 6 hour ride home with my 10 hours! (You should get someone to ride with you, it helps a lot!) But when you've raced RC cars for 42 years and are 63 years old, tell me all about it!

Oh yeah, I'll be long gone by then.....

The future of On-Road Nitro racing falls on our kids.

Not really pan car related but might be worth a look for some of you.

Angry Cheater body??

Got my ANTI MONKEY BUTT body from Brent. As far as I know, no one else has asked him for one. So how do you know they can't get one?

I might be pushing this to the limit here, but I think my boy said I was right about something. Well done Son! But don't forget, to me, you're one of the kids too!

Thumbs up Kangaroo

We got some run time with one of these motors with a 5.4mm restrictor. It showed good speed and 8 minutes plus on a tank. It run well and did not run away from the 3-ports.
There are those who think the new track well allow the pan car to fly, I know they'll run faster. Still they are a simple 2wd car, expect to have fun with em, I don't think you'll see a HP war in this class. the 3-port is going to always be a competitive motor and a deal as long as we can get them.
LETS RACE SOME MORE!!

What's all this about 3 port? I think my old Picco delivers alright, and I have a hard time imagining a different engine with more ports providing any more usable power....

Do you have a close up of that "cheater" body? What brand/type is it. I like the oldskool 1/8 CanAm bodies.

I think that Kangaroo is choking rather than jumping with a 5.4mm restrictor :-)
