I am I am!

I've just finished my new car, and I'm really hyped up for this Friday. I am a big Tamiya fan so I picked up a used 415MSX MRE for cheap. I've never driven it before, and I'm more than sure it's way beyond my skill level. Too bad I just couldn't pass it up. I just hope I don't destroy the thing on it's first race night...

My friends and I will be there this Friday, and we compete in the Sportsman class (medium level). Right now we've got a Tamiya 3-Racing TA05, Tamiya Evo-IV, Kyosho Stallion, TA05R, and now a 415MRE...

Here are some fresh pics only a two hours old as I just finished the body:








-Sean

PS: For all those interested, the only rules are 27T and 6-cells. It's all about fun...

Hey can I get some more info on the races? Location, rules, etc? I'll be up there visiting on friday and I'd rather race than gamble.

Thanks,

-Jon

Hey everbody, my name is Steven Pentland and am also a local. I was just wondering when these races start and what dates they are held on. I would definently have considered getting a touring car over an RC8 setup if I had known. Oh well, its all fun.

Thanks,
Steven

Hey Steven,

It has been a while how have you been? But I work at HobbyTown now and the racing have been going on since the new year. Its every other friday night at the HobbyTown on Sahara and Decatur. I think signups close at about 530. We get about 10 heats every racenight, the classes consist of Future Champs/Novice, Sportsman Sedan, Sportsman Gas sedan, Gearbox, micro, rc18r Spec, Recoil, Expert Sedan, Expert Gas Sedan. All classes use stock motors because the track is to small for anything else.

There is actually a race tomorrow, june 27th, if you can make it and come check it out.

Whats up dude! Wow it has been along time. I finally got an RC8 powered by a NovaRossi P5XS and am just starting to come back out to the SilverBowl track. Thanks for the info, and I might try and make it up there to check it out. The only problem is that my dad works a couple blocks down the street and he probably won't feel like coming back to Henderson to pick me up and go straight back to where he came from. We'll see though. How have you been?

Steven
