A couple of things happen when you let someone else drive your car:

1. You find out how bad you drive

You forgot the part where you find out how bad they drive and after they are done your setup really sucks, because they crashed so much.

See you guys are still going strong. Wish I was there to help.

What you talking about Ken, Jon does have a summer job, at the track. And his summer paycheck comes from DOD just like his winter paycheck.

How is that ISO? You get some WD40 on it?

Yes, Paulie you are faster, but I still beat you.

Kenji will bring up the skateboard jumps to Courtney so we can use them at Torii Saturday. We will probably have mostly grass to drive on.

Are we going to have a big area? Baja big? Do you know where the area is going to be yet? What about noise? Vehicle access?

Largest I can find is a 17t, I assume you need a 5mm shaft size. A 21T is huge, what are you using it on?

Not quite everything, but my list is fairly extensive.

D8T clutch bell
Ve8 motor or RX8
MBX 6T front A arm and bent axle
Baja header pipe, bent tie rods, rear lower shock end, and stripped rear wheel
Losi 8T MMM dead

I have started a run on a new record. I am trying to see how many times I can TQ Truggy and not race in the main. So far so good with today being the 2nd.

Heck, Josh only brought one car, that was done then he broke his tent...at least the wifey's water didn't break too!!!

Got away with a popped off rear shock on the baja and a battery cover on the controller...the Caster's are fine, just my driving was broken.
