We probably will not make it tomorrow, we had a death in the family. Jim, you will have to run the .5 with the gas trucks.

Sorry to hear the bad news Icenutz.

I have a question for you guys, when you fill a diff with fluid do you really fill it or only 3/4 full?

Thanks

Shawn and I won't be up as his Revo's starter is broke and the Tigerdrive has not come in yet for both of our trucks.

brent ........ thats bad m,k !

when you fill a scale diff you should only fill it about 3/4 or so . when i fill my diffs i only go a bit above the cross pins for the spider gears . if you over fill them you kind of defeat the perpose of putting different weights of oil in the them .

Pipester, I'm running a JP-3 and no I don't plan on running Sunday. I went out to McCullough's yesterday and had some fun.

This is what the CRT manual says about filling a differential.

Allright allready..........If I see one more picture of Stritmatter or his lead sled on the website I'm going to shoot myself!!!!!!!!!

Greg....sorry to hear about the death.

For the first time in history I will be part of a cook-out race day!!!!!
Rebuilt the damn thing over the week and found I was running 4 different pistons in each of my shocks. For those of you thinking it I will say it........I know I'm a RE-RE and should not be allowed to do anything unless supervised by a adult or GREG KALEMBA which ever comes first.

First off, I gotta give a big thanks to Jeremy, for dickin' around with that dang OFNA Force .28 POS for 2 hours and to Sam for hooking me up with the OS and just about every other part on my buggy, but once the OS was in there that made the whole day worth the trip.

That Jammin feels like a cadillac compaired to both of the sportwerks I ran last year, I actually have a power 'range' now and not a motor that is either ON or OFF. Just think what will happen when i actually get diff lube and a decent set-up on it.

Is it sunday yet? Im ready for Jammin Time!!!!!

Default Great Race Today!

Great racing today guys!

Please take note of the start time on the website. We are trying to get started a little earlier. Please spread the word.

We're also cleaning house on 1/8 scale tires, and everything else for that matter. Everything will be at TRS this week and at the track next Sunday morning. Great deals on everything!

Great race today guys - special thanks to bob Rairing for grillin!!! Another great fourth of July Race

Randy Snair - proud owner of a losi 8 buggy, the 2007 ROAR National Champion! Look forward to seeing another 1/8th scale in Gas Buggy Sport!

Randy - Get that bad boy built and give me a call this week, I'll hook you up with a starter box and we'll get your engine broken in.

See you all next Week!

If anyone is available, I'm planning a track work night for wednesday night. Work that needs done - level out the the backstretch some, level out/water/roll the few rough spots on the track, work on the jump takeoff surfaces a bit, refill water jugs. WEDNESDAY NIGHT THIS WEEK as of right now, I will keep you guys posted on the forum. I will plan on getting to the track around 5:30 - 6:00PM.


Happy Fourth of July!

Greg - Sorry to hear about Chiloh's grandmother.
