Just got a short little drizzle here.. Not enough to scare me away from racing tonight! Hoping for the best. The slash is waterproof anyway...

I'm going up but I'm not running in the mud, don't feel like spending all day Saturday taking my stuff apart and cleaning it. The SC10 isn't waterproof, lol. There must've been a half inch come down in a half hour here in Milford. Sun is out now so hopefully it will be dry.

Looks like weather is going to be hit or miss guys..... On a + note, I got my ESC, battery and motor for the RC18 today. I'll probably put it all together at the track

A little too wet initially for my liking but when it dried out it was nice.

well it needed to soak in a little before we drove on it. but watering it that much makes it good for later conditions like it did..

It was still really wet by first race. I think us electric guys should let the nitros run first to dry it out for us

Hate saying it.. but its offroad racing. Your trucks are gonna get a little dirty... I thought the track was very well maintained and the traction was right on all night. Really hoping my plans for next weekend don't stop me from racing this week.

Don't get me wrong, the track was great! Matt is a nice guy too. Never mind me. I'm fairly new to this and didn't count on having to tear down the car weekly to clean the mud out of the chassis. I thought I'd just be able to blow the dirt out with some compressed air.
