Brad-You see this on Neobuggy? 'Bayer looked a challenger to Ronnefalk with 20mins to go, but a rear tyre coming unglued meant he had to settle for 3rd, '

Bayer was using Losi reptiles. Even they fall victim to the Losi tire blow outs

I did see that Tom, I like the Eclipse tires too much though! I have discovered that if I let Ed glue my Losi tires (he said never again) I have no problems!

How was Barnstormers?

For sure on the Losi tires. I just use a careful method! B stormers was pretty amazing! Nobody had troubles. I qual 5th for the A. I lead early in the main. There were 6 of us fighting for the lead!! They were calling it 'the train' when our group would come by. It was intense with all 6 of us hanging! I finshed 6th, but same lap as the winner. that was the most # of guys shooting for the top spot that I have ever been involved with. There was some dirty ass driving at the end, but whatever...

Default Update on Slash Spec. class.

Too late for this year but;

1. You may turn your ESC around and hard solder your ESC wires to the motor.

2. No use of reverse during a race will be allowed.

The mod stuff has always had the rule, Altoona never had the rule in place for Slash. We will now. Penalty for using reverse will be 1 lap.

And in a general announcement. Beginning next year, you will need to have a personal transponder. We will have a few personals for rent, but will require a small fee.
