Man, now you had to post a picture of the track to rub it in that I can't go. Man, I signed up and everything and I can't get off work either day to go out there. Sucks, but oh well. Maybe next year we will have a class in the pro series.

I have no doubts that they will

Is this going to be on LiveRC? I would like to see some of the action, and +1 on someone getting some video too!

From a manufacturer standpoint, you only have Caster Racing and Losi just entered the market with a special edition one.

There are several companies such as Novak and Tekin that build conversion kits for most of the big manufacturers.

This (electric 1/8) will be BIG next year. It is still in its infancy stages this year.

Ryan Cavalieri with Associated said they were testing the new E-RC8 that will come out soon!!! He is looking forward to racing it too!
