Whats up guys, I'm up here in Altoona visiting family and I saw the track where you guys race. Are you guys racing Saturday or Sunday? I wish I had extra room in the car I would have brought my GT2 and all my gear with me to race.

Mike, A few of us still have gas trucks (I also have a GT2).

Just post something here when you plan to race and we'll try to get a class together.

The track is very 1/10 scale friendly after the most recent track change.

after some thinking and with everything else going on in my life....im going to take a break from r/c.
i dont know how long but i know im frustrated with the cost of just traveling let alone the cost of keeping the r/c in good shape.

so if any of you want anything i have lmk.

Morris, that sucks dude......we've all been there,for the exception of the travel thing. I think some of us take for granted sometimes that we have a track right in our back yard! I probably would not race but once a month if I had to drive a distance! Hope things go better for you!

TC3MIKE--nice to meet you and THANK YOU for sticking around to marshall! Make sure you have something to race when your around again!

Stobey and Fast Ed-- man you guys are on fire right now...Stobey in the 26's and both of you a threat at any time!

Roeder--thanks for the hook up! It's always a good time when your a part of the race day!

IcE--WTF? MIA?!?!?!?!?! Call me I have some info for you!

Mugenator--WILL ANYONE BEAT HIM? Roeder ran the fastest lap of the track--26.595--with his mod buggy then Mr. Mugen answered back with a blistering--26.431--!!!!!!!!

Matt, I've been in a similar rut with 1/8 Scale all year. We push RC cars to their limits and beyond and sometimes they push back.

If/when you come back, make sure you have tires that can hook up. I think that was 90% of your issues today.

Congrats to Doug in 1/8 Scale and Roeder in 4wd Mod. They have a pretty intense battle for fast laps of the day going on.

The TRS guys are taking a well deserved break/vacation from RC so there is no racing next weekend.

1/8 was insane today I blew it in the main. When you do good in prelims and blow it in finals, thats called...big balls, little dick I'm new to the quality tire scene. I'm narrowing my choices now......(blue, M3, medium soft) WTF? cant we just all get along? See you mf'ers in a couple of weeks

Got some inside info on the nitro shortage situation from the owner of S&W fuel here in PA. He said to expect the shortage to be lessened as early as August, but doubts that the prices will go back to normal. He said the cost of transport has gone up considerably, due to real fuel prices, homeland security, etc. So.... no worries, $6 more a gallon aint too bad. My half gallon a day binge will continue!!!!!!
