Excellent video quality, well done.

FYI, the Factory Tracks series in Michigan, Indiana, Illinois area is at least that big. 6 races, well over 100 entries. Including National Champs and many nat A mainers. They just had a trophy race with 224 entries, the Kahuna Memorial. It was a blast. Thanks to Allen Horne of Losi.

Wish I could run them both! Enjoy all.

Not sure you can make that claim as largest electric series in the USA.

JBRL has 8 races at 8 different tracks and pulls in an average of 180 entries for single day events.

Ok sorry about largest, how about indoor series, But either way it's a whole lot of fun and very tight competition.

Need to get some Factory Kyosho guys up here next year to give the factory Associated guy that keeps taking the modified crown a run for his title.

+1, I was going to mention the JBRL.

Definately a great vid, with stellar racing though!

I didn't mean to harp on your parade. I am very happy to hear things are going well up there and that is an awesome series turnout. I am amazed these series' are getting such great turnouts for the entire series. I used to run the old NORRCA offroad series in the early 90's and the turnout for round one was awesome but by the end they were lucky to have 4-6 per class as the only ones left were in the points hunt. These new series seem to keep drawing crowd regardless of points. It is great to see electric strong in other parts of the country as well! Keep up the good work guys!

Casper hopefully we can get you guys to come up for some racing next year. Hodap dropped in to Tacoma RC Raceway for a weekend this year. That really helped me get my RB-5 dialed in. Unfortunatly I didn't have the SP soon enough to complete the 4wd in the series. but it hasn't lost in the series since I got it.

We will have to see how things go. You are up in Washington right? Does the series get down to Oregon or is it a single track series? I have some family in Eugene and might try and make the trek up to see you guys when we visit again. It might be next year though!
