Holy smokes you're right. But my imaginary friend was standing next to that cone and he and I had a great talk We both like waffles and Claussen pickles.

Because somebody has to be monitoring the track every minute. They have issues with people using 1/8 scales and riding bikes on the track, as this destroys the track. They used to have an open track before the fences were up, but the track got destroyed.

I'm one of those that ruined for everyone. I got out of cars back in the early 90's and got into airplanes. Stepping away for such a long time, I never really thought about how much it really takes to maintain these things. When the T-Maxx first came out (I guess that would be late nineties early 2000's?) I got back in and one of the first places I went was SRS after hours. Not 1/8 scale, but just about as bad. I guess I was ignorant back then...if I saw someone do that now I'd be pissed off. I guess I owe someone a couple of beers from back in the day.

Contrary to popular belief I owned SRS right at the very time you were doing such horrible deed. I will accept your offer and erase your debt, hold no grudge. Any of the Anheuser-Busch line will work and don't forget to add interest. We're talking just over a decade's worth.

I'll be there for racing on Wednesday, with a truck/truck driver and cab ride home. Oh and don't forget I'm winning that freaking Power Ball today so as long as someone doesn't screw that up you need to be there Wed and I'll bring you a truckload and buy you your own cab to not only take you home but take you to the west side and my new east side track. Tell me one single RC track on the planet where you can get a lap dance with your entry fee.

LOL, that's funny. I would normally think of a witty response but I thought it would be a good idea to whip out the soldering station late last night to redo some wiring, which led some maintenance, which led to taking more stuff apart than I needed which led to screwing with all my cars which led to washing 16 sets of tires/wheels. This all led to me going to bed at 2am and then lying there thinking about what tires I want to run for the JConcepts race since there are no (pink) Beams left in the entire country (and probably World), until the middle of next month. Now I'm trying to get out of the house in 25 mins to drop my daughter off at the mother-in-laws so I can head to 1H for the day... in other words, I'm tired and have nothin'. LOL All of us have had those nights. I think I have everything I have to bring with me spread all over the house now.
