Default Thursday Practice

Chris,
Got bad news Monday night that my parts won't be in until next Tuesday! Went to Adam's shop(Show Me Your Hobbies), yesterday after work and he was able to fix me up with a wheel adapter pin so at least I can run tomorrow. Also needed tire glue so that is done also. I had two beads partially loose and one totally off the wheel. Adam said this stuff would do the trick. I really appreciated all his help. We also spent a little time talking about 1/5 scale cars as this was my main interest to get started back in RC. I would like to build a 1/5 scale modified for dirt oval when and if there will be a track close to run at. I was involved in full scale dirt track racing for 10-12 years back in the 70's and 80's. There's just something about dirt oval that keeps the blood flowin' and there are some awesome looking kits out there for the HPI Baja 5B (my preference).
See ya tomorrow if the rain holds off.

Default Thanks for the help!

Hey Chris,
Definately enjoyed myself today. Really appreciate all the help and instruction. I ended up unbeading the right front tire, but up until then it was awesome. Clearing the jumps now is not a problem and that makes a huge difference in the level of enjoyment.. Wish I would have noticed that front brake problem much sooner! Keep me posted on that dif setup as it appears my front dif is having issues anyway. I'm going to tear it appart tomorrow to see what's going on.
THANKS AGAIN and hopefully I'll see ya Thursday.

check out http://www.pittsburghracewaypark.com/Motocross/rc.php

for the schedule but I would pm chris "big hop" for his cell number to check if the track is open before making the drive out. I think he's going to be hanging it up after this month.

I was there this past saturday and the track was in pretty good shape, hopefully i'll be there this saturday also.
