Thanks for the kind words fellas...I worked my tail off Sunday to get this finished so we could start getting the word out. Robert already has started to distribute it on his end, and we're both working with Kadena PA to get the word out here.

I already gave 3 copies to RC Paradise and in return they gave me 3 big banners for the track - Hot Bodies, HPI Racing, and Active Hobby. If nothing else, we can hang them on the drivers stand (or the flatbed if the stand isn't ready yet). I told Kenji I had a new livery to debut on the Vorza that involved "The Hill" logo, and he asked me for a sticker sheet of it! I think they liked it also

I'll bring the artwork of the track to Tadashi (RC SIRO) tomorrow, as he's closed on Monday's. I hope he is able to make it out on Saturday and have his Wife watch the store. He's been really good to me since Emiko closed down Top Run. I'd love to have him come out and at least set up a vendor booth if nothing else.

So, after tomorrow, I'm going full tilt to get the Vorza finished. It actually came in a while ago, but I've been so busy on the artwork I haven't had a chance to change the stock basher settings to something more race worthy (shock oils, diff oils, taking the car apart and puting it to "Paulie" specs, etc.)

So now that our track is just about done, I think it's time for a new quote Anthony...

"See you in the dirt, and on the rocks..."



- Paulie

Right now the vote is tied between the whale and the racers, drifters, and crawlers. We'll get more votes at the next bash/race session.

Jon, do you plan on bringing the generator to the track on Saturday? What about your 5b?

I have a 8x8 used canopy......free to a good home. If anyone is interested I will have it at the track Saturday.
