check out the st.Ives thread, track looks awsome,
They hope to have a first meet on the 15th, if they're not ready they're going to ask council if they can run on the 22nd,
I think it could benificial to go before the first round

Ash,

You wouldn't be selling Panther tyres by any chance would you?

Also, could you're super grip have anything to do with our super track work a few weeks ago? I don't want to detract from Panther tyres, just wondering if the track had anything to do with it.

Nick

So how was the racing yesterday? Did you beat the rain? Did Roman survive 2stock or did 2stock beat him? Did Trent manage to reign in that horsepower he has?

And as for your force question Nick, not enough to turn a buggy motor so (let alone to big to fit in)..... or maybe 999,999uA... am I close now back to tires....

I've found nothing to work really well at Ryde yet, anything that works at first rapidly goes away once it's edge is gone... Did 10 laps the week before in 2stk with Losi Gold Ifmar studs, does that count?
It's like running on sandpaper out there without the grip out there!

What will work at St Ives?????????

Sorry I know it is pedantic but what can I say, I did an English major. I try to keep it to myself but sometimes it rears its ugly head and bites some one in the bum.
By the same token, you wouldn't say "I looking forward to seeing...". I understood Steve's sentence to mean "I look forward to...." just dropping the "I" at the beginning of the sentence. It also works using "we" instead of "I" which is how he started the post, "We thought we'd...."

Racing was great we managed to finish just as the rain hit, Roman owned
4wd and 2wd stoc he was on fire yeaterday i drove like a little boy he dropped his lunch

i think Roman was actually bagging Mr T saying that he just talks big
but if it came down to duke he would nock Mr T on his ass

YESSSS , get a wheel radio Steve. Futaba 2.4GHZ . No worries , no fuss .

It was a great day of racing yesterday, i had immense fun running in 4wd stock with my BJ4, finished second to Ian Thorn (B44) by 2 seconds .

I felt i drove well in 2wd stock with my trusty Jconcepts clad B4, finished 2nd again, Ashley was in a league of his own. He could drive a Tamiya Frog and still win i think.

Well done Ashley, i hope HARRIS RC will be a presence at the Ryde track more often.
Shane from Harris RC looked like he enjoyed running his Slash, he was smiling most of the time up on the stands i noticed.

Missed you Shane Edwards, and tell Mr.T i challenge him to a duel. . . B4's at 10 paces.

I am running Jconcepts Double Dees on both buggies and they give me plenty of grip and control.

As for St.Ives, i will be using Jconcepts Barcodes. I think the grip will be blue/black groove. ( What is the difference if any, between blue groove and black groove ?? )

Good that you made it in the end Nick. . . running late as usual.
But you brought the bad weather with you.

Trent, better luck next time with your B44, you seemed to be jinxed yesterday.
Not your fault, like you said maybe you were a bit nervous. . . of me and my BJ4 ?

Any spelling mistakes Nick ?
Sorry in advance.

Hey Steve.
You have almost caught Nick with you post total.
But you need some work with your trader rating.

You have to buy or sell RC goods in the FOR SALE thread to increase your trader rating Steve.
