that wont happen as the factory guys normally run "one off" channels so things like that dont happen.

micro if you go to the entry list it shows the frequency they signed up on and they did not run the Eu. or Asia mhz sets. it wasn't until one of them switched to that, then he was able to run his car and at least finish some laps.

y would they even risk the chance of glitches when they have the crystals noone else has?
i know- they were looking for a excuse for when they got beat by the losi

I'll have to talk to Phil at Neo-Buggy...I've been running the Losi car exclusively! That was, by far, the best week I've ever had in the 8ighth (hahaha) scale class, and man was it fun to be competitive all week long. My car was flawless the whole time, my motor ran great, and all of the Team Losi guys had a great week individually, and as a team.

There were some frequency conflicts during the A-main warm-up and then before the race started, but all drivers with problems were given time to change crystals and all 15 cars started the race on time. I finished 7th and ran out of gas just yards before my first fuel stop. Gary Guest finished 6th and was the first buggy not to have any mechanical problems (that I'm aware of). Eight cars failed to finish the race.

To assume, or to instigate, that foul play was involved (on ANYONE'S behalf) to alter the outcome of the event is BS, and pretty lame if you ask me.

Congratulations to all the A-main finishers, and big props to Mike Truhe for winning the truggy and Pro Buggy classes!

I think they pulled the recievers out of both cars and pu them back in the race, Ryan M came in a few laps after he went back out and I think he may pulled off for good but Ryan C stayed out there for the rest of the race.

DJG - Thank you very much!

I must say also, that this was absolutely the best event I've ever been to in terms of facility, organization, the announcer, everything.

Good job Aaron. The losi buggy seems to be the hot ticket lately. I think everybody in Mi. has switched to it but a few of us. Can't wait till the snow melts.

Oh yeah, Billy Fischer came in 4th in Truggy with his 8T and his shocks and diffs were built in Taiwan! He got it right before the race, shows you how race ready it is.

That's cool!! If Billy got his as a roller then the trucks are in the states. It will just be a few weeks to package them up and ship them out. So the March 9th date may be good after all.

your wrong in both your posts. ive only seen one factory guy run a "one off" crystal and that was tony phalen.

and so what if they get beat it was their first race with it. If you noticed maifield TQd a round of pro buggy. get your facts straight before posting dumb comments.
