Matt, you are correct "tooo many projects...." but I think I'm getting more ideas and a little closer to trying somethings. I will have to start of with small stuff, drivers, windshields for fiberglass bodies, then maybe 1/10 scale cars ('60's F1), THEN the repopping stuff! lol For some reason I'm getting more optimistic that maybe it can be done!! Time will tell! I'll have to look for a source for the material....

Thanks,

Try "Phil Cring's Hitcharide Hobbies" or "KIA RC" (ask for Matt the Brat!)

Great detail on the body! Full size drive and Velocity Stacks! Chassis sure does look like wood, wonder if it's really wood or contact paper? lol

We have completed the 2013 MWS schedule. We will be back to a full 6 race series with the best 4 of 6 counting towards the points championship in each class. Classes will remain the same and each club will have the option of adding a non points class to their event. I know Leisure Hours and TSRCAR in Cincinnati will both run electric touring and hopefully other hosts will take advantage and add something. The five previous race hosts will be racing at the same locations so all lodging and directions will be the same. I will post information for The Hobby Shop in Dayton soon. The 2013 schedule is:
May 18-19 Joliet
June 1-2 Toledo
June 29-30 Portage
July 20-21 Racine
August 10-11 Cincinnati
September 28-29 Dayton
