What tires are working well? I'll need more of those since everything I have is indoor.

Red Hotbodies Megabites, M3 Holeshots, with the Megabites getting the edge in lifespan. Any ribs on the front of the 2wds. SS AKA Impacts died in 4 packs on a 2wd buggy, and weren't great. Soft Impacts might be ok.

Nice meeting both of you today. Dex210 is on the way but I'm having a problem getting my order completed through Amain with my FPO/AP through PayPal PayPal isnt taking my address and support has been less than helpful so far.

It is always good to see new people out and nice to meet you too. I can't wait for everyone to get their stuff together, so we can do some driving.

Anthony, did you get a buggy yet?

Anybody up for Thursday the 4th to go to the track? I will probably be out there Thursday or Friday, and then Saturday or Sunday, depending on when or if anyone else can show.

Still got the 2wd Yokomo loaner all setup and ready, just let me know if you want to use it. I can do another loaner 2wd buggy, if more than 2 people want/need it.

I'd happily take you up on a loaner vehicle. I can toss all my electronics in it for the day. I'm no Masami; no way I can drive with a 2 stick

Haha, no they already have electronics and pistol radios. If you have batteries bring them.

Was finally able to get the other stuff ordered up. Settled on a Trinity D3.5 13.5t with the high torque rotor since the Reedy Sonic was out of stock (what I typically run). I was thinking there was no reason for the additional torque if I couldnt put it to the ground but I can always eliminate it via the ESC if need be. Picked up the Megabites along with some JConcepts Rips (blue) for the front and a few other goodies. Now the waiting begins...
