I ended up trading a car for a B44 and can't wait to start racing 4wd again. That class is competitive and is starting to "stay" it seems. Hope to have it by Saturday.

4wd and 1/8 scale (brushless) is what I want to focus on, with an occasional 2 wheel Truck thrown in there.

Yes....I'm calming it down in my old age. No longer racing 10 different cars with 4 different brands.

Thanks Mike!! I think I've retired nitro for The Pit only. I want to get back to racing 2 classes at SRS and havn't done it since I started with nitro. So....for now, I'm doing electric only at SRS I think.

So I'll gladly join you in electric bordem land, but now hope to race twice a night again. You should try it if you arn't already.

Who is this? I'm not familiar with everyone's code name on here yet.

Nothing I have is ready. Converting my nitro to brushless. Hoping to build my new B44 too. Hopefully dialed by Saturday.

Hey Mark,

Interested to see how you like the B44. Did you find the Futaba Fast receiver? Let me know. If not I will have to buy one when I get back into town.

I have also thought about giving a XXX4 a try. What do you think. Does the shop stock parts for the XXX4?

I am in Vegas this week staying at the Hilton. Barry Manilow says Hi...

Are there any tracks out here to check out while I am in town?

it will be hard to find an unbiased opinion about the XXX4, as there isn't a single non sponsored driver at SRS that runs one.

It is a capable car though, and in the right hands can go fast.

Mike. Are you there on Wednesdays? I may look you up. Been having trouble finding rear traction with my 8ight buggy. I was also pushing into the corners until i installed the 2.0 steering assembly. Lots of steering now.

XXX4?

I'de personally stay away, but Friery has one I believe. They look like a nightmare. I bought Carl Miller's XXX4 a while back, owned it for a weekend, got scared, and sold it. But I'm the wrong person to ask cuz I'm allergic to maintenance. Ask Mike.
