Default HELP !!!

I NEED HELP!!!!!
Hey guys my financial situation has taken a serious turn for the worst. As some of you may know I have been out of work for quite awhile now, I have been an Electrician for the past 25 years , physically I can't do it very good any more.

I just found out that all my lines of credit have been canceled for being 15 days late, I've only been late one other time and it was only a couple of days.

So anyway I need a job real bad now, or there going to start shutting things off and taking things away for me real quick if I don't start bringing home some money.

If anyone knows of anyone that is hiring for anything, or has a job I could do, please let me know by PM. or E-mail [email protected]

Thanks for any and all help, Mike.

If your racing tomorrow there is a parade on Scottsdale Rd in the morning, so it will be closed. Should be reopened at around noon.

Greg, my buddy that races novice from time to time on wednesdays has a xxx-t CR roller for $100. If you're interested just PM me. Besides the body needing replaced, it's a fairly decent truck.

Hello all,

My name is Paul and I used to race at SRS years ago when Scott A ran the racing. I raced 2 wheel Truck and buggy and a lil 4wd when the class was there.

Its been a long while, but I have been around talking to some of you. Humpty was really cool glad I met him, can't wait to take his cash at poker however... hahaha

Keoni is also very cool, I am glad the owner takes huis racing so seriously and is easy to talk to for such an accomplished racer.

I am usually buying and selling RC stuff trying to figure out what class I want to race, this time I am taking my time trying to decide the right class.

I was considering 2 wheel 10.5 truck (Lois XXXTCR), or 1/8th Electric buggy (Losi 8 or RC8 or other). The truck is apealing because its way more cost affective with tires and bodies and parts and batteries. 1/8th looks really fun and the cars look pretty amazing but the tires and batteries look amazingly expensive... I like the fact that the class is growing there, wish they would have raced it years ago!

Anyway I am going to be making up my mind very soon, hope to meet some more of you out there soon!

If anyone has any suggestions or reasons to pick one class over the other I would appreciate it much!

Thank you

Paul

You are right about 10.5 it is prolly the most cost efective class. (although rear tires are slightly more expensive than buggy tires) Plus it consistantly has the most racers. (see the posts a couple pages back)
