Default the sickness

sounds like you guys are gonna have a blast!!
i wish i could be there, but i gotta work, maybe if i'm not to busy in the evening i may swing by and watch the mains lol.

My old tired 1.0 truggy is officialy retired, and the 2.0 is now sitting in the r/c garage waiting to rip! lol

THANX KEVIN! for the killer deal, and helping to get me into the 2.0 spectrum! lol


good luck tomorrow guys!
weather looks good! mid 70's, dryer, and just a slight chance of a shower, which for those of you that dont know, this track handles water awsome!!

Track was great! The light rain that didnt last long made the track perfect. The new corner by the hobby shop made the track just that much better. Some fast guys so buggy main was tight and I think truggy as well.

That far back right corner pipe is a relatively quick and easy thing to address

Yes that's an easy fix. Do we need a stairway to heaven or a log section of some kind in place of the double over by the hobby shop? I believe we should stay on the layout development and welcome feedback from everyone. As the turnout grows we can lengthen the drivers stand to handle 15 racers instead of 10. Allen has given us a great pad to develop, not bad for an airplane guy! All we gotta do is keep showing up to race and things will keep getting better.

Man, the stairway to heaven is a great idea! I imagine he's got easy access to logs or telephone poles

**dont replace anything to put it in!! More obstacles the better***

Great spot would be that corner right before the little quads by the hobby shop

Thought the double by the shop only because it's a little narrow and i believe Allen doesn't have more dirt on hand. It would kinda kill 2 birds with 1 stone. Then we would have some xtra dirt to play with. I'll just tell Brian to meet me there one morning and i'll be an hour late so he will have it figured out before i get there.

It's good with me too. Some people are concerned with the narrowness of the top of the jump. Maybe we can get more dirt. I like all the doubles on the track.

Default Thank you

Terri and Allen,

Ethan and I had a great time today, even without running the mains. Homemade macaroni and pork barbecue was great. Awesome technical track, good clean racing, and good group of fellow racers to run with. We will be back for the next race. I am putting together the video that I took today and I should have it up by tonight.
