I certainly don't want to do the same thing again for the classic, so if you guys can give me a little idea so I know weather to eliminate the class or keep it added to the lineup.

Hey Chris the Christmas Classic is going to be the first time I run at Bumps and Jumps if you can give me a class line-up and what kind of race it is(ex: Points race, Charity race) I really look forward to running up there everyone that I talked to says its a race you can't miss.

Wow what a great day of racing. My Slash went from a pile to the best its been in the main. I did the best O could and finished 3rd. Brian and Mike just had a little more than me but I hung in and drove well so I'm very happy with my finish with a high rider chassis Slash.

What a turn out for the 17.5 Pro SCT class and the mod buggy class. Both classes make you work you a$$ off if you want to do well. If your not working on your stuff someone else is and ready to move up at your expense.

The turnout today was outstanding. 75 I think was the total. Great to see everyone coming out to race at Bumps.

Good job with that high rider slash against all those race trucks Brian !! Got my new chassis for my slash cutting and grinding on it now will try to have it ready for next weekend.. Real quick do i need to take out the mod motor and install a 17.5 for pro mod ? Not real sure what motor you guys are running ohh and how are those proline shocks with the dual spring thingy working ? I am still running the stock plastic shocks and not sure if i want to drop a 100 on shocks that might not be worth it .. What do you think about there performance ? Ohh and are you still running the suburbs on the slash and what inserts ?
Nice to see a good turnout for 1/8E buggy.. Jason will see you soon gonna try for tuesday night depending on work.. Ohh was that a LOSI buggy that won the buggy Amain ? I thought it was all about the B4.1 up at the B&J's..

It is a plaque race.
As of now the classes are
Slash Spec
Pro 17.5 Short Course
Mod Buggy
1/10 Scale 4wd Buggy
Mod Truck
1/8 Scale Buggy Electric
with 1/8 scale nitro buggy on the fence - depending on feedback
It's a fun race for sure as I think back about the great racing we have had at this event and it's really been awesome

Everyone runs a 17.5. My Slash was great in the main. I actually didn't run the Roline shocks in the main as I ran my Integy hard anodized shocks and they worked great. I tink with my lcg setup I will be able to run either and do pretty good. I have ran Suburbs and Wishbones. Depends on the track for me. Both brands come with nice inserts. Some guys run the HPI I Beams but so far I didn't car for the ones I have but with my new lcg I will try all my stuff out again to see what works.

Yo broke joke, how about you lay of the the keyboard racing and do some actual track racing. Build your lcg slash and get 2 racing. wyd doesnt have the lcg yet and he is competitive but then again, it is his home track so he should be. The racing was very close yesterday and it was a blast to drive was a great group of racers that kept the racing clean.

Thanks. I actually think my Slash would be better at any track but ares. The super stupid bite we normally have hampers my Slash but anything other than running slicks my Slash is better and no tipping over problems.

I still have to drive on fire to try to keep it close with you and Mike. Working on that problem as I type. See I keyboard race and actually race my sct as well.

Get both.

Whatever you choose will be fine as both have a good sized turnout.

Cool place Chris and crew. I havent been to Bump and Jumps in about 5 years. Me and the guys who made the road trip had a great time. We are hooked and will be back as much as possible.

I really liked how fast you guys ran through the program and still gave us 3 heats with 75 racers! Track was fun and technical. I never got the hang of it but I hope to. Of course my bad driving is most of my problem, but I am now ordering the right tires and looking at set ups.

Hats off to the cooks. The food was great and priced right.

Even with a tight track the 1/8 scales got around just fine. There was plenty of room with all 9 on the track at once.

Thanks for the fun day guys!
