Default 2006 Off Road Shoot Out at Hot Rod Hobbies!

It is July again and time for the Hot Rod Hobbies Shoot Out. I am going to be posting as many updates as possible, here on RC Tech and also on 4wdrc.com and 2wdrc.com. It seems like Off Road has not been getting the attention lately like in years past, so let's see if we can change that a little.

Competing at this year's event are some of the current stars of Off Road today. Ryan Cavalieri, Ryan Mayfield, Jared Tebo, Travis Amezcua, Adam Drake, Jesse Robbers and Mike Truhe just to name a few. Brian Kinwald is signed up and we were all pretty excited about the possible return of the Dirtinator to the Off Road arena but after talking to him online, he is just not quite back to himself and will not be attending. All of our best wishes to him still!

As usual, Jimmy Babcock (owner of Hot Rod Hobbies) and his crew have designed another killer layout, so the racing should be really good. The weather is hot as heck as usual and the track has a nice blue groove already.

Stay tuned!

We will post the top ten from Mod 2wd and Mod 4wd for today later tonight. The usually suspects are at the front of the field. Travis Amezcua TQ'd round one of Mod Buggy and Ryan Cavalieri TQ'd round one of Mod 4wd. Mod Truck round one TQ is Jesse Robbers.

More complete results coming later today.

Did I mention it is as hot as hell here. OMG! I fell like I am gonna die! LOL Still having fun though. Well............trying to.

Hey Cherry! My first run in 4wd is pretty much a throw out. My car was really hard to drive and I think I spent more time on my lid than actually driving. lol

The 2wd X-6 is working really well. Would'a could'a should'a had a top ten in the first round but..............guess what.............I crashed. One crash is all it takes to ruin a top ten run. Just getting too old to be able to concentrate like I use to. lol

Tell Shane I said WTF is up! Peace Homie!
