Yeah I think your right. The pics help everyone out but in person the place looks better than when he first opened and thats hard to do. I know Chris and Jackie won't ever want to see white, black or gray paint ever again!!!!!!!!! And Chris will never want to see white primer. 65 gallons of white primer alone upstairs.

Yes I will be there. I cant take another Sunday watching the Redskins embarrass themselves.

My son went to his basketball evaluation last night. That means the season will be starting soon hopefully the games will be scheduled on Saturdays and I will be a Bumps and Jumps regular again this winter. Last 2 winters his games were Sundays but that was JV this year he is varsity (7th and 8th grade). Ive got my fingers crossed.

Brian,

What are your thoughts on allowing cvd's in the strikes for the spec class? I have not seen a truck yet that is not bending the stock dog bones. I think it may be a similar problem to the slash shock caps. FYI, it's not any advantage either. I was running the red losi the past two weeks at Garland's and as you can see, the cvd's on the second week didn't make much difference. Although the second week was better than the first with added weight and camber adjustments to the rear.

That is true and I heard the Strike is a little rough on dog bones. At least for the first week it will be ok. Problem at this point is we are just getting started with all these new SCT's running together in a spec class so the more stock they are the more we get a good idea on how they perform when all racing together.

Its one of those areas that we have to draw the line somewhere on what we allow. The more we allow the less SPEC the class will be.

Chris and Jason carpeted alot of the jumps last night and I finished up getting all the Losi stuff back up on the parts wall. I think they will work on the a few more ramps and will be ready for Sunday. My guess is we are not going to make the first layout so technical like it was alot of the time last year. We are going to try out the new kicker jump and drop off jump they made. Both are a little different that anything last year. In testing they where alot of fun.

Looks like my plans include Bumps this Sunday. 1/8 elec. buggy and either Mod Truck or Mod Buggy. Last year, opening day at B&J was somewhat light in entries - but this year looks far bigger.
