Brian,
Sent you a PM. I am hoping to make it out next week or the week after. Still need to put on the arms on my 1/10 4wd buggy and work is keeping me busy.

Is there a class for 4wd buggies? I am thinking that I may sell it and get a 1/10 2wd truck instead.

Any suggestions for the San Diego Backyard scene? Looking forward to this growing in popularity.

Chirag

My track was a big oval, but one former strait-away is now a zig zag, thanks to track crew Coop. A great change. 180s, 90deg turns,sweepers, just try to have a few of each, make it all connect and work out. If you let us come run we could help. We are looking to make it a series that goes to many different back yard tracks.

JESS----YES PLEASE, on the hose, rad, I have two tracks to outlin really. Wait three if Dan lets us come over.
My track is done and a fairly large size, I have a thread with it in here but
i need to update it as we have changed it around since. I just wanted to see what others were doing to get ideas.But maybe the next time i am down visiting my inlaws i could come check it out. Thats my old stomping grounds i grew up in your area.

Default Success !!

Yes We are running. I am behind on PM's but I will get on it.

Nice tracks people. A racing league is what I had in mind. I am eager for other tracks to join in. We have a small (but ever growing) crowd. Post if your track is willing to have people over. We have all good people, One guy is Law enf., G is millitary, a father son combo, and me, and Coop.

I should be around earlier tonight. 5ish, not working on a deadline job at the moment.

Brian,
Would you run the Associated SC10 in the same class as a Slash?

If I can sell my CAT SX, thinking about getting a SC10 or a regular stadium truck (I like the look of the CORR SC10 better).
