Sweet. Maybe all the issues were worked out on the 10th track. Hopefully we can get some of the rocks, bumps, & crap worked out of it.

As far as bumps and crap, it is an OFFROAD track. If everyone keeps digging the rocks up eventually you are gonna just hit more rocks, and then we will have an offroad track with pieces of onroad track sticking out of it. A good example is to look at the straight on the 1/8 track.

There is one big issue with the 1/10 track, someone built a lake in the middle of it. Figured I would wait until the end of tomorrow before I drained it, so that the water didn't turn half the track into mud.

Not to point fingers but AxleNut did it!!! I think he was trying to make a pond to race boats.

I was consolidating 3 lakes on the track into one lake off the track. It was a temp fix. It is gonna be a PITA to get that drained efficiently off the track.

We're on a freakin' island and he wants to dig a lake for boats.
I didn't know he wanted to be a "seaman" so bad.

Dicks! You can go out there during the week and fix it Scott. You don't do crap at work anyways. Speaking of, I need to drop my mower off to get it fixed.

Anyways, I couldn't go to the track today because of that monstrous Tsunami.
I was forbade. Guess I can't complain too much, I usually get to do whatever I want.

Well, no RC for me this weekend fellas...

Been busy with other stuff. My wirelesss router died last night, so went and got a new one today - works flawlessly. Got the Netbook all fired up and downloaded/installed all the tuning programs for Castle, Tekin, and Mini-Z's - went without a hitch.

The netbook lasted over 8 hours on a single charge! Frickin' crazy! Ha ha.

That's about the extent of my RCing this weekend. Hopefully, my parts will arrive early this week, and I'll be able to complete the ongoing Vorza and D8 builds...

On a different note, what's the status on the drivers' stand? Are we gonna have it for a race in March at some point?

Inquiring minds want to know...

We're not going to tell if there is one there already, if it is coming soon, or anything until you come out to the track, see for yourself and drive your RC cars!!!
