We had our weekly club race today. I ran my Evader in the "open stadium" class. I broke a front knuckle arm in the first qualifying heat and then redeemed myself in the next two heats. Early in the main I got hung up in an un-marshalled area and fell way behind. When trying to make up time, I launched over a jump with a bit too much speed which threw me into a concrete wall resulting in a broken front bulkhead. Ooops!!!

Maybe next week


I have not broke a front bulkhead in years... I guess it was time

We usually get between 8-15 in the open stadium class and 5-12 in my sedan class. We also run stock stadium, stock sedan, and mini t/beginner. It is always a fun day of racing. Recently we have had a handful of new drivers, but some of our regulars are gone getting ready for the outdoor season.

You can check out our club at:

Our site has pictures, forum, point standings

This week we had 10 racing for the open class and only 6 for my sedan race. Maybe thats why I finished so well???

With it being Easter weekend, we were a bit small

ILDRVR-Cool website, I liked it, thanks. I will keep that one and check for updates.
Well I fixed the servo, after lots of emails and phone calls the parts arrived.
No new servo as none in stock so got new gears and replaced them and Iam up and running again (Thanks to the evader thread crew and all you crew for the help). I did enjoy the achievement of fixing it though.
Bow tie tyres (+spare set of hole shots to see what works best) and HPI rims on rear. No evader rims in stock. Man how do I get parts on time for this thing.
Iam getting nervous before my first race.
Pic of fixed Evader (Yes I know the rims aren't the same )

Before the rain

I was able to get a few laps in before the rain and Iam happy with the tyres as they have made a huge difference with the control of the car. My driving has improved I think the practice on the tight home track helped.
Then came the rain 15mins before the first qualy.

I don't wish to talk about it. Iam still to emotional
Starting to dry out now so going to the local BMX track to bash. Will edit with pics later.

Nice "race" reporting!!!

Race MORE drive BETTER!!!!

Have a race setup in "Duratrax Evader" thread post #100 that works on clay.

Associated T3/GT rims will fit.

The Evader is basicly a Losi XXT (IF I remember right) some Losi parts will fit.
