Sherman, XXX4 is on order! Are you in for 4wd? It should be here by next Thursday. I'll try and get it ready for Friday night.

Speed building, eh? Well you should know the ins and outs of the car since you have the XXXS, not much different.

If it builds like a XXXS, the only thing that keeps it from being a one nighter is having to tap every friggin' hole in the graphite before you put a screw in. The XXXS is one of the easiest builds I've ever done other than that aspect. I can't wait until I get a tap and die set.

I didn't even do that on my XXXS, just used steel screws. I dont think there's a need for it, I've run a lot of losi graphite cars without ever tapping a single hole...

My buggy won't be here until Monday. I think I'll still stop by Friday night after work to come hang out for a while. Any word on racing yet?

I was there last Friday night and they were testing out the counting system. Seems everything went just fine. I talked to the son and he said they are ready for racing. I talked to the owner and he did not want to commit to racing. But that was last Friday.

I or someone needs to call and find out for this Friday. I will be there racing or fun. My truck and buggy are running great on this track. No problems. I am ready to race.

Sorry. Never had the chance to run on carpet yet and I don't think the champs should be the place to learn

You got a full day of practice Just bring swaybars and heavy ass springs, and you'll make it.

Got the bars and the springs, just not the confidance. Maybe next year. I've been trying to find out where the NORRCA Nats are going to be for 04. I want to run that and try Reedy too. I hope they don't do the lottery deal. That would suck!
