The LHS on island are:

RC Paradise: Carries most car and truck stuff, on road, drifing, mini z, crawling and off road 1/10 to 1/8. Limited nitro stock....HPI, Kyosho, Tamiya, Enroute, Futaba and others

Siro: Mostly on road touring car and drifting...Yokomo, Tamiya...some off road

X-Hobby: Some off road, some on road, some rock crawling...haven't been there in a year or so...some nitro

Diego: Airplanes and Helicopters, some cars on road and off road, nitro fuel

I think most have us have bought at least on car (on road and off road) at a LHS, Igy...maybe 12...the rest we order on line from Amain and Tower...

I think everyone had a good time Sunday. Thanks to all those that came out and participated. Congratulations to all, not just the winners!

Here is a good pic. Can we get this one cropped and zoomed in?



Two buggies going at it. (Fixed it for you Caster Fan Boys!!)

Pretty Bad Ass Pictures. I think I am gonna paint my next car green so I can get more shutter time. Maybe if I can keep it running til the end would help too.
Ready to race it again next weekend, bent chassis and all.
Sucks to be leaving soon. Need to get a job like Robert in FT Campbell so I can come over her TDY once or twice a month.

Default CONNEX

I am delivering a connex on Friday Morning to store our stuff in. Hope one of you Courtney guys can get a forklift to unload it.

Nobody willing to help on the connex? Anybody know that young fellow at environmental/facilities or that Gunnery Sergeant that was helping at the track in the beginning.

OK, I am gonna keep this thing over here at Torii Station until I can coordinate Forklift support. I LEAVE ON JUNE 12. So, If someone could tell me where to coordinate it would help. It can be moved with a standard Warehouse Forklift and I am licensed up to a 50K (the big bastard). Just need to know where to get it.
