I'll come up on the 10th and run my Lazer......is this an "every week" thing? I keep trying to make it up on the correct weekend for onroad, but it's difficult to line things up.

I do not believe this is an every week thing, I heard someone, I think it may have been lester saying that they were going to try to make it every other weekend on the opposite weekends that santa barbara races so basicially race 1st and 3rd weekend of the month. But I am not sure.

Hey Joe! Never seen onroad/oval results posted, why offroad get the special treatment? I think its a good idea if its not to much of a problem.

Orrin,

If you guys want them - I'd be glad to post them. (I've saved all of them so far..)

I only posted theirs because most of the guys didn't get a chance to see them (I packed up pretty quick when the race was over to get home..and back to SMSpeedway before qualifying)

Several other guys from the Off-Road deal are visiting and posting on the RCGroups web site - and I've heard something about a site called FEAR FACTOR but I haven't found it yet.

Here's the link to the RC Groups site.

Fun race today. Kinda of a low turnout is was hoping some SB would show up. But they didnt,oh well. There was only 2 heats and all the classes were ran together. A main was shaping up to be a good race between me and James Gray. But like a dummy I forgot my spare rec. pack and didnt relize it till right before the main. And Jame's<? motormounts came loose so he was out. The winner was Justin Gray driving The new mini MGT.

Heres some pictures not the greatest Quality.

Heres Joe from the SW Tour. He bought out his scoring system and loaner transponders, so everyone could get scored.


Winner of the A-MAIN ripping the Mini MGT


Unknown topless truggy(James Gray??)


Xray XT8 ripping it.

Heres the my new(to me) Kyosho lazer ZX-5. Its now ARR, all I need are tires which may have to wait a week or two. Cause Im poor.

And I didnt paint the body.Note to painters out there. Leave the windows
unmasked they look so much better.






I think I stuffed all the elecronics in there. Those little 1/10 scale cars run out of space in a hurry.
