4MAN - Brad agreed to wear one of my old football helmets and take a helmet hit from the 1/5 scale buggy off the big jump. Would that bring you back out? J/K

I was only joking with Brad about that but I think he was serious about it.

does this mean, if you can't win you don't want to race!

you are playing with toy cars...shouldn't matter where...it's about socialization and racing to have fun...get that stuff charged and go racing...do a little stress relief

hope to see ya soon Dave...hang in there...

I know how it gets. I had raced maybe once in 5 years. At least the stress from rc is really in your own hands. Taking a break helps. Eventually I wanted to run again just a little.

Thanx man,
sounds like there are no other truggys,
I think were gonna go check out blue diamond, sounds like alot of truggy will be there, i'll stay tuned to this forum, and if it picks up we can always come out
btw,, the new track, for those of you that didnt go yet, that richfield is merging with is SSSIIICCCKKK, totaly awsome flowing, all out mx style track.
will be sweet to be able to hit that track and altoona up! since im guessing race's will be still setup to work together! Awsome!!

Jim is running truggy, he is letting me use one of his other truggys. I also posted an article on a local forum and it has had 450 views, advertising the race sunday. Not to mention the recent news coverage. It could turn into being a HUGE race day.

I hope you guys can make it, but if not, enjoy the other track. I heard it's pretty cool.

JD and Jackie will be there for Slash racing.

No rain is forcasted till late next week, so conditions will be great for a good day.

BTW, my buggy (Hyper 7), another Hyper 7 for parts and a monster truck (RTX-27) chassis w/body are for sale. PM for details.

See you guys soon.
