Yeah, kinda pissed at myself for not going. I thought it was going to be a crappy day.

Well I got back...............I hate that trip.

How is the stand?

I learned a few interesting things last Tuesday, one I would not have believed had I not saw it myself. Went and watched a little racing in Santa Clarita, CA. saw a guy TQ with his 1/8 buggy and his 4x4 Slash.....this guy was good, the amazing part, he ran the same number of laps in both cars. The 4x4 brushless Slash is stupid fast. It helped that the track was smooth and somewhat technical.

Anyone going out on Sunday?

Have we set a date yet for our first race day? I am getting the fever, we should look at a Saturday with Sunday as the back up.

I think my Slash is going to get muddy today............

The date for the first race is already set. It is about 2 weeks after we get a drivers stand.

I think that may be slightly optimistic.

And how many times did he lap you with his slash? He was whoopin me for most of the "race" until he got hung up. After I gave him the "it's not funny when you crash into people in the corners" speech, he was killin me with the Losi truggy. He would get right up on the inside of me in the corner and then slow down. I couldn't pull away, but he couldn't pass me clean, so he didn't. I was thoroughly impressed. I'm sure next week he will be right back to knocking me out of the way.

I removed a bunch of big rocks from the base and face of the tabletop and the triple. I also filled in some on the face of the triple, so no more forward flipping the tabletop or triple.
