Are you guys still planning a trip to McCuloough's Saturday? Myself, Ed Tooth, and Travis Chamberlain are going to run E-scale. There is also half dozen or more of E-scale regulars penciled in for Saturday

Ya both of them are gone we have no hobby shops down here at all anymore

no clue what happened with Nittany hobbys, they had two stores open up at once, all there table top game stuff was at teh down town store and the rest of there stuff, rc stuff models and train stuff was up by dicks. The down town location was closed with the stuff all still on the shelves for like 2 years before they finally went in to clean it out. The store was poorly stocked and overpriced when it was open anyway.

Yeah,I agree.They also didnt have the most helpful R/C techs in the world!!I have had so many poeple ask me about that place and I never new what happened there.I look for Genes in Duncansville to close also because of pour stocking of R/C items and the guy who runs the counter is a dick

Yes. As soon as the weather stays nice I'm going to drag it and prep it for practice.

Had a blast today!!!!!The track has been rolled out COMPLETLY!!!!It is AWESOME.It is totally worth $10.00 to practice.Toby rented a concrete roller (the kind you sit in ) and rolled the INTIRE TRACK.I ran my Odonnell buggy for the first time this year and it ran great.Broke my wing but it was a hard plastic wing that breaks easy anyway,other than that buggy held together tough!!!!
