Jimmy yelled at my brother for hitting another guy for a pass, and then my brother gets hacked flat out (by the guy that took me and snowflake out). All I can say is next year I'l do something else besides stock truck. Both the fact that pretty much everyone else has some type of sponsorship except me, and that most of the tracks are for the faster trucks and buggies (pretty much anything but stock truck). Hopefully my Banzai motor can help me beat up on Andy Cowan this Friday .

hey jason, i might not make it this weekend. i will try and atleast go to socal to give you your scissors back. my parents are being total gayasses so i might not be going to socal. ill tell my dad that i have to give something to a friend, but that might not work. i WILL try. otherwise, you might have to come to my house and get them..or iono. sorry.

for jbrl, looks like you guys are having alot of fun. too bad i cant do any jbrl races...atleast today was my last day of school..maybe if i can find a job (most likely not..because im 15...im hoping i can get one at either ultimate, hobbypeople or socal though )

First off I've been racing the series, and at Hot Rod, for a long time and have never seen or heard Jimmy yell at someone. Second I have no idea what was wrong with the guy that hacked flake and your brother but a lot of people were having glitching problems all day long even on 40 band, now I'm not saying he was glitching as I was pitting right next to flake all day (we pit next to each other and every race and are good friends) and was in the race and saw the hack. I have no idea why Jimmy didn't say anything, I even talked to him about it last night. Third alot of the people in the sportsman class should be running expert. And last Andy is a sandbagger, and he doesn't listen to people when they tell him to move up.

He said something like "let's make this a clean race Joey, seen you hit a couple of people" or something like that. This was in the B main, as my brother was BQ. While I agree that the race should be as clean as possible, there was tons of hacking in that race and I don't think it was fair to single my brother out.

But yeah, Some of the guys (Luis, Andy, Nick, etc) should be in expert, but there isn't any money in that class, as they get <5 racers per track, while sportsman gets about 40.

I know in the B-main for truck there was lots of hacking but i believe some were getting glitches. I too was in the truck B-main and everytime I went to take the big jump the car stopped dead it its tracks and coming onto the straight it wouldnt turn. I think it was to power lines above or something because nobody was on my frequency the whole day.

What radio were you using? I wasn't having anyone problems with my spektrum, but then again, it's a spektrum . I'm sure there were glitches throughout the day, but I doubt that that was the main reason behind the hacking. Sometimes, you just end up with a race full of hackers.

I was using a 3PK. Steven Hartson was using an M11 with 40 band and was getting glitches. In the 4wd main Cody King's car was stuck on full going off the big jump.

tell me, froom standing near the middle of the drivers stand..is it hard to see so you can land your car perfectly so it rolls down the little landing platform? thank god this time there isnt a little triangle space made by those big pipes that your car can wedge into like the other layout. i mustve broken atleast 3 arms with my car flying into that thing from 7 ft in the air.

I might race TC Saturday, but if not, I'll probably be there just to hang out and take some pictures.

I got rid of that body when I sold my Losi and got an X-ray, and I've been too lazy to do another body with my own paint scheme, so I've been running the body I got with the car, which is just solid red. I might bring my buggies though, and I think you've seen what they look like.

If nothing else, look for the guy with the camera (you'll know it when you see it).
