JCI usually starts out around $150 for the insurance part, depends on the car...then the inspection can cost you $30, but then if something needs fixed is when it gets pricey...cheapest is usually $350...

Josh forgot to give you a traxxas plug, show up Tuesday at RCP and I'll give it to you.

Igy-thanks for the tuning...I'm such a gremmie.

I have three Slashes if anyone needs one for tomorrow night..Hayden? Greg?

Next Slash Bash at Blues Bay SCT October 10--AM or PM?

Weight tax is around 15,000yen plus the insurance and inspection that Jon mentioned, cheapest is usually around 35,000yen and with the crap ass yen rate you are looking at closer to $450. This would be doing everything yourself. If you take it somewhere that will do all the paerwork and run it through inspection for you, add another 10-15,000 yen plus replacement parts.

I'll bring two slashes and four nimh's, they both have 2.4ghz radios so no worries.

I got lotsa spare parts for them, the students drive them...the third one I have needs a rear hub carrier tho...anyone?

???Slash Bash on the 10th--AM or PM??? It is the rain date for my son's undokai (sports day) so if it rains on the 9th, it'll have to be PM

Slash Bash at night is good. The 11th is a Japanese holiday, so no school for Luke.

picked up wood today to build a raised pit lane, got a box to put sifted dirt in to leave off at one side for when we need to add dirt somewhere, just need to get the 1/4x1/4 inch mesh to finish the sifting table. also got a brand new weed eater. AND IT WAS ALL FOR FREEEEEEEE!!!!

RCP at 6 tonight right
