Aaron - Congratulations, It could not have been easy. Jared Tebo was going to be tough and drove a great race. Are you going to school Todd in gas truck ? LOL!

Jared Tebo finishes 3rd in 1/8 A-main.

Todd - The XXX-NT gas truck master.

The B-Main wasn't easy at all! Marty Korn tried to stretch the race on one pit stop and ran out of gas about 30 ft. before the finish line, and I drove around him to take the final bump-up.

Tebo was gone..his Team Losi Red T-Bones were hooked up (shameless plug ) and there was no catching him.

Todd - See you in July!

You can't buy the Odonnell RB X12. You need to be sponsored by him.

joshr85-I started in onroad('90-'92) way back in the day...then offroad('93-'02)....then got back into onroad. I personally love offroad.....the personalities in offroad are alot better to deal with. Onroad personalities tend to be bit .........i won't say what I really think. I could babble on and on and on.

Thanks to EVERYONE for the kind words! I've never been this happy with a 9th place finish!

warpig - I've never had an X5..I've never raced 1/8th scale (except friends' cars at a few club races here and there..)

I bumped up into the gas truck main, using a basically stock Adam Drake Edition XXX-NT with various Trinity and Losi aftermarket hop-ups, Airtronics and Novak electronics, hours of preparation from my dad, and a little bit of luck!

Team Associated - Like what was said, you can't buy that motor. You can get a stock X12, but it's really not the best in terms of being easy to drive (which means faster lap times) for the majority of the gas truck racing world. An Orion/Picco, Trinity/Sirio, or even an O.S. CV-R are great choices.

Todd - Sometimes, "rednecks" with muddy shoes and gas trucks that won't stay running, are the nicest guys in R/C! And that's why I stick to off-road bud!

I'm a redneck at the moment..forget Sin City, it should be called Sunburn City.
