I was just checking to see if you knew the real reason. Let me know if you need more hillbilly tricks.

Default To be honest

To be perfectly honest Mr Hamm. I don't like your attitude, your negativity and your attempts to ruin our thread/track here.

You have posted on our thread three times in 5 months and it's been nothing but drama. I kept my mouth shut the first time. Now I am choosing not to.

You came up here along with 27 other people. We had rain that morning as recent as 5 am. You seen the track was wet. YOU chose to run your truggy. Your truggy got dirty, then you leave, come on the forum running your mouth and have nothing nice to say. Of the 28 people here that day, your the only cry baby of the bunch.

I took the Altoona Raceway from a brush pile, run down track full of rocks and full of drama to a decent family place where everyone could feel welcomed.

You sir, are not welcome. You probably had no intention to anyway, but be fore-warned, as long as I run and own this track you WILL NEVER RACE there again.

And as far as the flaming on our thread, I ask that to stop too. If you have nothing to say that is nice or encouraging, keep your mouth shut, about me, the Altoona Raceway or my racers.

Stay off my thread and my track Mr Hamm, GOOD DAY

If you guys look really closely to my buggy, you can see my homemade mudgaurds I made from left over molding from a protoform body. Mudguards really help to keep alot of build up off your shocks, linkages, and shaft.

Well think of it this way, if your a sponsered racer or a diehard local you won't complain about the track being too wet or too dry. Alot of factory drivers around the world raced/qualified in the rain and mud at the Farm II in Charlotte, NC 2 years ago and they never complained. Just think about the job on hand and suck it up. Its offroad and its going to get dirty.

Hey Brad, I'll be more than happy to show you how I do it. First thing is to pick out a good gravity fed airbrush and always keep it clean and free from dry paint.

Everyone RELAX! This is exactly what he wanted. I think we all know by now the only thing he runs good is his mouth. And yes, this is how Mr. Ham ruined the Drums thread, so let it go and don't pay any attention to him.

Guys, alot of drivers down south been using KAL-GUARD prep&shine w/ cherry scent. You spray it on the chassis and parts but not the body. It prevents the dirt or mud from sticking.

I have that part covered Mike. I have a Iwata that I'm trying to learn to use, or that you can teach me to use!
