First off, Thank you to everyone that came out. It was nice to finally meet Jason, Cody and Ethan.

Racing was fun, track was great and fun was had by all.

Congrats to the winners:

1/8 E Scale - Mike Bright
1/8 Nitro - Jason M.
Stock SCT - Brent B. ( He is now 2-0, from the driver's stand )
Mod Electric - Cody M.

On another note. A guy came right before the race and he got memberships for himself and 5 others. During the race a guy and his girl came, they both became members. And after the race, another gentleman joined. That's 9 new members today. Thats awesome.

After the official end of racing, groups of people started pulling in, all with R/C cars ( Truggys, buggys, M/Ts, Electrics ). Poor Jason tried to leave three times. LOL. After racing, turned out to be as much fun as while the race was in progress.

Thank you again to everyone that came out today.

Rob,

I should have thought it while I was at the track today. I think the buggy and truggy motor mounts are the same. I have a spare set in my toolbox that I can probably drop off on Monday on my way home if you give me an address if you are going to be around.

I am so glad everyone had fun!!!!Garry and I spent 2 hours trying to remove any sprout of dirt from the track.I know I didnt get to burn to many tanks threw my buggy but I burnt 4 tanks threw my weedeater:It made It well worth all the work we put in to see everyone enjoy thierselves.I know we plan on extending the fuel ramp another 8 feet so that will give plenty of room for fillups.Hopefully the electric will be done soon also,so we dont have to here the neighbor say "DOES IT HAVE TO BE THAT LOUD,TURN THAT DOWN"

Rob-You should talk to Mike from Answer RC and see if you can get a few common parts to carry. Gabriel last night was talking about getting a new clutch and wasnt sure what to do. Airfilters, clutch bearings, etc

Rob,

I noticed you had a pump for water. You might want to look at a setup like this with some type of firehose. It gets the track done pretty quick:

Had a blast racing!!! I wish Brian would maintain his stuff a lil better so that we could have finished that battle in SCT. Led the E-scale main for about 2 lap before Mike blew past me so fast i wasnt even sure what happened, but that e-scale race was the most fun rc car i ever drove, car seems dialed, driver still needs a lil work.....cant wait till next time.


Speaking on next time, what is the verdict on next week? Still 2 day event or post poneing it? I am prob not gonna be their UNLESS it is a 1 day show ran on Sat., Sunday is def. out for me!
