So who is up for some 1/8 scale this Wednesday? Track is super dialed even though there was some rain. Probably won't get to race nitro at SRS for at least a few weeks with the Cactus Classic and all.

Hey I'm looking for help building my backyard track, it should be a lot of fun for 2wh buggy's. I live in the NE. valley, at 36th and T-bird.
Anyone that would be willing to help me build the track, would be more than welcome to come over just about any time they wanted to and tear it up.
I've got a line on a huge pile of nice clean dirt, I've brought one load home today and started some of the berms and jumps.

Anyone interested call me at 480-721-4995.

Thanks Mike

My point is that they are not typically used in RC because they are around the outside of a turn and typically the quickest way around an RC track is the inside line in corners.

SRS News-

Just a reminder that we will be racing off-road tonight at 7pm. No racing tomorrow due to track rebuild!!!

I also wanted to take a second to thank Kevin, Mike, Dyno and Matt from Team Losi and Sean and Ryan from Team Associated for coming out this week and sharing with us some of the new 2011 products. I had the chance to run the new Losi 22 and New Associated 4x4SC and I think everyone will be very happy the quality and performance of these new vehicles. We have a ship date of March 20th for the Losi 22 and it looks like we will be seeing the Associated 4x4SC hit the shelf’s sometime in April. We should also see some new products from Reedy hit the shelf’s in 2011 as well as a couple changes in LRP product lineup. Please check out the following link to find out more about the LRP SXX Stock Spec V.2 Exchange Program that’s going on at Associated.

http://www.teamassociated.com/exchange/

Cactus Classic Entries-
We are coming down to the wire with signups. PLEASE PLEASE get your signups in ASAP if you want to race. We are very close to selling out!!

Cactus Classic products-
I have already been getting some dry track tires and wheels for cactus and expect that we should be seeing a lot more tires and parts middle of next week. Transponders will be in stock today or early next week. Don’t wait till the last minute!! Once they are gone that’s it!

Good to hear an actual date....

Anything different planned for tonight? Backwards, move some pipes? Big wood ramp in the middle of the straight?
