good to hear. Any electric's last night. Getting my ducks in a row to get a car. No far from having a set up to run indoors, a little farther away from an outdoor set up. Of course i have to get a car first!

Good racing Saturday night (As usual). There was a pretty light turnout due to two big series races the same day. It was pretty wierd watching the smoke from the fire just on the other side of the mountain. There was a huge airplane dropping water on it and it seemed like they got it handled pretty quickly. Lucas and I had an awesome race in the main. It was definitely the best and closest race I have ever had. It seemed like we were glued to each other for 20 minutes. Unfortunately due to some "issues" I couldn't bring home the win. Since the turnout was so light we mixed the Pro and Expert class and I wanted to commend the Expert guys for their great driving. It seemed as thought they raced cleaner than a lot of the Pro guys. Thanks Chris and Trackstar for all of the help. Next weekend should be a good one...see you all out there.

Man, after this weekend, i am really liking what the Kyosho is capable of. Super rough track, and the MP9 looked like it was floating, and it is one of the more heavier cars.... i think.

Brandon, i'll give you a dollar to let me drive your car. 2 dollars if you let me break it.

Hopefully i can get out this weekend to get my club on! whoa, does that sound right?

I was too busy fighting my motor in the main. It went south on me, i lost all the bottom end power.

The Losi is a good car, i am just not sure it fits my driving style yet. I have driven the Mugen, and the Losi, i haven't tried the K car yet.

Thanks guys. I was really surprised. The car didn't feel very good in the warm up and race. I tried different tires that I hadn't run there. Soft Gridirons. They had a lot of wheel spin. Got a horrible start to last place as usual, but put my head down. I had to drive at 1/16th to 1/4 throttle the entire race. Except the straight of course. Everyone else was crashing a lot and over-driving the track conditions. I just made a lot less mistakes cruising and driving the track conditions. Hopefully to see everyone at the track Saturday for a good turn-out.

Tennison, you can't go wrong with the Plus 4. I'm getting (no BS) 12 min a tank out of mine in my truggy and was over 10 in my buggy. It runs like a swiss clock and NEVER flames out.

The powerband on it is very linear with good power down lown and plenty of power up top. I really think you would like it.
