3 weeks no r/c racing. It sucks . But health is more important and family.
What are you guys doing when you are itching to do something r/c related but cannot go out and race (responsible self quarantine)

If you have a bunch of RCs, you usually have a backlog of stuff maintenance or tuning wise that you need to get to. Just going through that, also have a Schumacher I need to build from a few weeks ago.

Also just bashing a little more, by myself of course.

CA is pretty much shutdown for at least a few weeks, probably longer. Honestly, if this keeps up, Iím going to dig up the lawn in my backyard and build my own little 1/14 scale track!

Breaking the buggy all the way down and building it back up. Checking/cleaning bearings and replacing oils and seals.

Or find some old tires and setup some corners and keep your reflexes sharp. Old school fun.

If it warms up again (in MN), I'm going fishing.

Just found out late this afternoon, I'm only supposed to report to work one day a week (limited to one person in an office each day) so I've got some free time on my hands the next few weeks and not a heck of a lot to do with it.

I have a back log of house work to do. Was getting ready for 2 races coming up which were cancelled.
It has been nice fiddling with the cars getting them ready at my leisure in short spurts.
Working on stuff like fans, connectors, paint design corner weights and other things I usually don't have time for.

Thinking this will be longer than 3 weeks unfortunately. . .

It's been a long week for me. Been home as a precaution for a week since we traveled to Florida the first week of March and got sick shortly after. Should be heading back to work Sunday.

Did some work installing electronics in my new 22 5.0 only to be told our only local track might not survive the mandated closures PA has put in place. Hopefully that's not the case.
