OH that was me lolol man I need to practice
Same here I need practice too but man that track flows nice once I learn how to stay on it will be even better but when I did keep on it it was sweet and I was hittin those jumps nice that BajR body from JC Concepts makes the Slash glide through the air nice and level I think I'm puttin that body on my Hyper 10SC and maybe I'll get one for the Jammin SCRT10 too because that body don't trap the air and as windy as it was the Slash was nice and level all in all the track is sweet no doubt about that I'm glad FTRC is my home track is all I can say

I stopped by the track real quick. Lookin' real nice! Super happy to see you all putting so much work into this.

Quick Q for you all - what do you all think is going to be the most competitive / popular class?

I ask because I've been out of RC for a while (YEARS) but itching to get back in, so when I saw a local offroad track I figured I'd check it out. If I can swing it financially long term, this definately looks like the track to make home.

I used to complete with all 1/10 electric (buggy/truck) - but really interested in getting into some of the SC truck stuff. Looks like that's really picking up? Are SC trucks in ROAR competitions? Losi make a decent SC truck? (I've always favored Losi stuff..).

So how long was I out??

Here was the car that was being run just as I was getting out:
aedownloads.com/pdf/detroitrc10.pdf (add h t t p - I can't link yet)

That's the 1991 World's car.. Masami Hirosaka. So to do some quick math.. I see I have an old tool box filled with 20 year old bottles of Team Losi Performance Shock Oils, VRP diff lube, 20 year old motors, SCR batteries, the works. Can I sell it as vintage on EBay?? HAHA I have no idea where my Losi XX ended up.

Well whatever you buy don't get the losi strike Losi dropped the ball on the shortcourse trucks there already discountinueing it if you want something good do as killa B said get a slash or any of the other makers are all pretty nice just don't go with the Losi strike hopefully Losi will take another wack at it but there first try was a bust for sure and yea at our Track the shortcourse is looking pretty good along with Truggy and it also looks like Buggy is going to do well but if shortcourse is what you thinking of go for it I know most of us at FTRC have and will be racing them 2wd and 4wd there's lots of Slashes a few Jammin SCRT10 And 1 Hyper 10SC I know of for sure at our fun run I seen a blitz and I know a couple guys had the SC10s last year so no matter what one you decide to go with there will be plenty of room for your truck to run either way your going to have a blast racing at FTRC it's a good group of guys that just keeps getting bigger so come on out before you know it it will be like you've been hanging out with everyone for years it really is a great bunch of guys

Yes there good guys they will be seeing a lot of me. Wish they would stock some 1/8 scale parts going to talk to them soon as I can make it out there.Looks like Hobby Town is interested in stocking some 1/8 scale parts "they said make a list" of what we use the first thing on my list is BYRONS FULE thats a must once you run byrons you never change back it ROCKS

I'd agree that we seem to have a strong showing this year for Short Course 2WD and also some 4WD emerging. Nitro Truggy and Electric Buggy see as though they will also be big classes.

For Short Course 2WD the Traxxas Slash and HPI Blitz seem to be the most popular around the web and are noted for being durable. The new Kyosho Ultima is getting very good reviews. The Associated SC10 has many fans as well but is known to be a little more difficult to get "dialed in" for the track. I believe they have a revised version for 2010 that includes some changes to address this.

Looking forward to seeing you and rubbing fenders!

Alf, when you talk to hagerstown moped, tell them 25% byrons gen 2. They stock 20%, but you would have to re-break in your motors to switch fuels. I would definitely buy a gallon. I think I have enough for this weekend, hopefully.

Thanks, Mike
