Exclamation Looking for Ranch Pit Stop logo...

If anyone with an old decal or REALLY old RC racing magazines has acces sto a decent flatbed scanner, can you please contact me? I am searching for the original RPS logo, and I thought I had an old decal, but it has turned up missing.

Please PM me here or AIM/Yahoo: upon3 if you can help me out.

Hey doug, not spoke for a while, I do have stickers with the logo on I think but not much time at the moment (preparing for the Euro champs) so if no one sorts you out remind me and I'll get it scanned.

Awesome, Jimmy. Much appreciated. If no one else can get something for me, I'll bother you next week.

I would like to get the image a well. I grew up on that track and sadly cant find any logos now. One day I need to get up in my moms addict and look for the box of trophy's. They have the logo on them as well.

I just came across a bunch of pics from growing up there, when no one made a 10th scale gas truck.. and we all ran the "earls" conversion kit for the LXT... wow....

I still have the yellow logo'd screwdriver in my pit box. I still think about Marcus' greeting on the answering machine there... "....the World Famous Ranch Pit Shop"...


... memories

Marcus was a cool dude. He let my layway on my RC10 go over by a few months. I wonder were he is today.

I've got the brown RPS hat from the 97 offroad worlds.
Kind of a fuzzy felt material.

I got the logo, and am currently working on a sheet of vintage R/C decals. If you're interested, check my progress over at www.rc10talk.com as I move forward. I'm pretty sure these will be available in the near future.


Thanks,


doug

Sorry, but I think you mean 'attic'. What you wrote is just sooooo wrong on a couple levels. I don't usually pick on grammar, but I couldn't let that one pass without comment.

What years were you there Flybywire? I started racing at The Ranch about 87 when they had the old track. I Was there every Wed and Saturday for almost 8 years until work got n the way of Wed nights.

I won the Pro-Am in gas truck at 12 years old.. that would put it about 1994'ish (?) Was racing for a few years before that, and lost intrest about a year before the Worlds in 97 (Dad took me to Bakersfield and Vegas to qualify, and I missed it by 3 secconds... discouraged). Always raced with my dad, Mitch.. hung out with Ed Kenny a lot, if that rings a bell at all. Wow, talking about this brings so much back.. Scott Booker's gas truck prototype, Brandon Upshaw (now a losi engineer), Alan Losi, Jim Halsey... wow.

I never raced on the old track out back.. but do remember getting sprayed by Paragon in the eyes when my dad was playing around on the big on-road track... the next time we went back... it was covered in dirt...

I ran a few times on the asphalt track & the old dirt oval out back, I hung around the Ascot track, RCRC mostly though (late 80's, early 90's). I did go back and race at Ranch pretty consistently in the late 90's also. Sure do miss that Ranch Red Chili.

wow...i feel old now
