Thanks Rob. That ramp looks awesome, I'll try to stop down sometime on Saturday, not sure how much of a help I will be but it will just be nice to be back at the track!

On the other hand, have you seen me drive??? i will always be disadvantaged!!!!

You guys wouldn't mind helping a gentlemen find a hobby store in this area would you? I broke the GT2 bashing around campus, and I need a new front bulkhead.

Smitty - Not sure if there is a hobby shop in Altoona but we were told by Rob last year to call Hidden Hanger in Harrisburg and tell them you are from the Altoona Raceway. I think Rob was going to start stocking some parts for popular vehicles like the slash.

If you are thinking about racing I have some old tires from a T4 and Kyosho gas truck. They should work on yours as long as you don't have those quick disconnect wheels...you can have them for free to get you started racing. I used them when I raced 1/10 truck there.

Tomorrow is not looking very promising for track work. Still very wet from the past two days of rain.

In regards to parts, I was all ready to open a hobby shop, but with my unforeseen emergency surgery, that project is delayed. There will be some parts onsite once season starts..

A hospital bill of $29,000 can really set things back a bit.

I can check track in the early AM and see where we are as far as wet.

Gentlemen, thanks for the heads up. I went to Harrisburg today and picked one up, only $2. Almost walked out of there with a Spektrum radio, but with all the archery shoots I have going on and the new arrows I bought, I'm BROKE! I really do appreciate the offers though, that's one of the things that makes this hobby so great.

Man I could really go for some track time though! Bashing in the grass is getting old! Karo, if I ever get a weekend where I'm not going to some sort of archery shoot, I'll PM you if I'm going to the track. Those tires would be AWESOME! That truck has some serious rear traction issues.

Looks good Rob!!!! Looking forward to checking things out.

I too was wondering if there will be anymore truggys there, sounds like there will be, so I'll plan to bring mine as well, anyone planning to run 4x4 short course?
