Thank you Brian and Leon. Yes, my car took off during practice (about 1 hr before the start of the main due to faulty on/off switch). I had to replace the front center shaft, rear chassis brace, bent the chassis back, still not perfect, replace the bumper holder. Luckily put everything back together in time for the main. Got lucky from some bad luck .

Shawn, its the same body you've been chasing all year long. Yes, and let the "bench racing" begin

Leon,

Based on the picture, are you getting ready to put your good looking Xray GT in the washer?

Man with the looks of the cars and recent results, I have my work cut out for me in a few weeks. Really like the looks of that body. Andy we need to talk when I see you about adding that to one of my chassis.

Also, anyone had any luck with patching a cut in the sidewall / tread of a EXP 50. Got one at the last race in Lincoln in a new tire (1 5min qualifier) and really do not want to toss it out if I can do something with it.

Mark if you want we can talk at the RC Pro race about getting some more bodies at a better price I need a few more myself

About your tire bring it to the race I have a few Ideas depending on the rip in the tire.

See you soon....... Prepare to be XRAYED

Thank you Captain Spooky. Thank you for letting me to be part of the team. After I saw you put the entire front end of the GT back together in less than 20 min. between the qualifiers PLUS your willingness to help anyone on the trackside at my very first GT race in Utah I knew YOU ARE THE ONE that I can respect and look up to. I am SO looking forward to have my car along with yours on the same track again !!!!
