CR , I'm planing on sitting this winter out ! The purse can't handle the carpet stuff . I might end up running some indoor at mccullough's though from time to time.

Fastestcat-Thanks for the offer, but I'm going on vacation that week!

Karo-The buggy was torn apart and a thought of running one more time was in mind until the thought of cleaning it again went through my mind! I have to say that this is one tough buggy-I took it to work one day and hit a fire hydrant at full speed with no signs of failure.

Pipester-Just pm me or put something on the forum if you are interested in going over to McCullough's.

B44 is on order and the T4 is almost ready to go just need to have my speeder/ lipo show up at the door and put the plastic chassis on the truck. I got my Orion 7.5 today.

Dux, you're a trooper. We talked for a bit during the RAC and I had no idea you werent feeling well. I've suffered from the same thing you had and its definately not something to mess around with.

Keep your engine 'cleaned out' with the right fuel and use after run oil? and you'll be good for another 50 years I'm sure.

Matt, I'm going to run the TA05 until Chrismas and then we'll see. I expect the TA05 to be a little more competitive than it was last year with the larger more flowing track and rubber tires.

I'm more excited about the 13.5 brushless stock motor and lipo batteries. Tests at the parking lot have confirmed tuned stocker performance with no maintenance running as cool as 'the other side of the pillow'. Plus, I can charge up the lipo battery the night before, and walk in the door at 7 pm Friday and start qualifying even before I unpack my stuff.

I still have my 1/12 scale but no plans to run it. It sure looks cool on the shelf though.

Get that JRXS ready - the first race is Friday October 5th 7:45 pm. Be there!

None taken! Shut up and don't worry about it! We all joke on here and have fun. By the way Karo I was extremely offended and deeply sadened by your thoughts of me...............and I thought we were "friends". Hell if everyone took my jokes to heart no one would like me!

4-man, better bring your A game for the pits!

Glad to hear all is well. Stay outta trouble!!!!



Can't wait for carpet, especially all the verbal slanderings between me and Steve Mac! Some of you special people were treated to a small preview of our 07-08 verbal slander season at the track and Zach's last Sunday! And of course I came away victorious once again!

Dave
My depth perception was just a little off, i caught the left rear tire and the car stopped like NOW!!!

Nothing bent, tweaked, or broke!

Have some fun this weekend at Altoona

What do you plan on running this winter?
