Since Fassst Eddie will not be doing his race re-cap this week I have taken it upon myself to do my own Sunday race re-cap in 2000 words or less


1-2 heat I figured out that I should not be allowed to build any more kits especially the shocks and camber rods.

1-2 heat I discovered that Bobby Rairigh can cook a mean hot dog and that the mystery doughy things kicked but.

1-2 heat (including my main) With a supervising adult present (THANK YOU SAM) a kit that was built by myself can be straightened out enough to actually win! And Pink shock booties will knock at least a full second off of a lap time.

The Main- I prefer to be told what I'm doing wrong while racing. Thank you Jim, Doug and Tommy Boy. I calms me down Yes it actually does!!!!!!!

After the main- Do not try to jump over a dirt pile while trying to drink a half gallon of tea!


GREAT RACE DAY GUYS AND CONGRADULATIONS TO ALL THE WINNERS!!!!

KARO, what's the word on the gears? When are you heading to McC. I plan on heading down on the 7th. They have the new drivers stand usable. I read somewhere that they are inside on the 13th because of rebuilding the track for Pro Series. Doesn't look good for the Pro Series for me.

I called Tower Hobbies first (that is where I got it) and they said to call Hitec. I called Hitec and the guy laughed and said "I thought Tower has a 30 day return policy, maybe it is only 30 minutes." He told me just to send it to them so I did. I sent it to them priority mail and got it back about 9 or 10 days later.

I will check Nitrohouse.

Thanks!

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!!!!!
madman - You can just send me a check for the engine. I can't remember what we agreed to but $55 sounds good. That RG will run on almost no compression and it still has a pretty good pinch. I'd say as long as the air filter is kept clean you have atleast a couple gallons left in it. Also send the manifold along with it after you get one of your own. Check your PM

They repaired it. If another one goes I will just get another brand and then send it back for repairs and keep it as a emergency back up. I ordered arms from Nitrohouse and got them shipped so i can have them by Saturday. If they do not make it there is always CA and superglue!
