No water leaks....just an 1/8 scale buggy full throttle, over the straightaway pipe and into a plastic water pipe. I am sure that will be fixed so it won't happen again.

The "leak" was out in the fenced in parking lot at the water main.Hard to mis sas the dirt was piled up 3' high around it & surrounded with big orange construction posts & caution tape.Other than the hole you didnt want to drive into it was fixed prior to sat race.The other fountian was a bummer & I feel bad for dan ,I saw the water shoot up then hear dan say OH MAN sounding like his dog just died.Thats just bad luck 2 water problems in the same week,when it rains it pours & yes punn was intended.

The D8 is different then every car I have driven. Not a good night to make an evaluation..motor problems all night and rev was run dry and I am not used to that anymore. The car has a very forward pivot point with a tendency to hook, Not sure what needs to be done to correct this situation...rear diff oil, rear shocks , maybe stiffer front shocks etc.

Did see a couple of snapped front cv's. Certainly HB is working on this problem, it is only a matter of time before they snap.

Many flame outs...maybe a stuck clutch or just a worn out vspec.

A very interesting layout at rev..someday was really thinking with the layout.

ATTENTION EVERYONE
I just got off the phone with Dan and Friday night ARC Raceway was broken into!!! This LOWLIFE MAGGOT ran off with just about everything you can think of.....starter boxes, Losi kits, KO radios, servos, parts, etc. Dan has been building inventory for months and this scumbag took most of it. I am just trying to spread the word. Hopefully someone will know or see something and we can catch this POS.

ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?

It's got to be someone that has been to the track. We can find this LAME person. Dan should not suffer this loss. He has been way too good to us racers for one loser to come and screw it all up.

We need to spread the word and keep a close eye on E-Bay and other F/S sites to try and catch them.

If we could get a comprehensive list of the stolen items, maybe it can help identify the POS.

Hope this doesn't hurt Dan too much. This Sucks!
