yea track does need to be for every body but it has to be fun AND challenging so it doesn't get old....


I buy one new buggy to try, why do you care? Does it even have anything to do with you the way I buy things? I work and spend my money anyway I like...

Im am definatley not a "mod guy" I am a kid who is in mod...there is a difference, the first one has experience and skill, me Im just learning....

tom i really like this design.. the only flaw i see is the back left corner.. look at the pole and look at the corner.. its gonna be a huge blind spot for people standing rt of center on the stand.. maybe try to fig another way around it if you can..

Maybe we can angle it in such a way to minimize the blindness. I'm sure we'll figure it out once we get out there drawing it with paint on the dirt. Thanx for the compliment.

Im not writing this because Gaetano is my friend, I am writing this because scenarios like this keep occurring . What I do not understand is that any one who is trying to help gets shot down constantly. If you keep shooting down the people who want to help then who is?

nothing against guy but if you see all the riddle-speak he spews out throughout rctech, (im not talking about just the IRH thread), then you'll understand where bill's coming from.

Thanks go out to oz and Mario for being great as always and helping out someone learning. My baby really took to oz. then again he probably just wanted to play with all the cars in the box. I'll let you know next time I'm going there so they can be charged.

This is getting very interesting.... Lol. I will come to race no matter the layout. For me it's a night out to "play" and try to improve very rusty driving skills. I would like to think I drive the same car the same crappy way each time I'm there, lol. Time, patience and finances willing I intend to soon drive TWO vehicles in craptacular fashion!

See you guys for fun and racing Friday night. Let's all just "get involved" and have a good time! Props to Chuckie... I love that phrase and use it at work to get some of my techs going when they have issues now. Unfortunately, that means I get even more "troubleshooting" calls in a day than I used to get all week.....and I'm the new guy dammit!

Good job by Tom licata once again taking on the thankless job of drawing (very professionally i might add) what has to be 30 differnt layouts for Don and his comittee to choose from . NICE JOB I hope you did this during work so you could get paid for it lol. As we've learned in the past it never goes down exactly like its drawn it changes as its going. Remember when its down, a year ago we had to go NJ to race so embrace whatever is done. AMEN
