I was about to give Ryan some crap over those shorts but they match your paintjob. Now i'm not sure who to screw with.

LOL, don't do that quite yet!!

I felt the same after running my first Baja 5b, made me wonder why I was racing nitro and staying all day for 30 minutes of track time....

But, after bashing at about all the spots that were local....it started to get boring. Nobody to race against. No real organized racing for them.... AFter a few months, and seeing how insanely much money you can spend on one, and getting bored hitting the same jumps all the time.....the boredom became extreme so I sold it.

I realized I wasn't just spending all day at the track for 30 minutes of track time, but to spend all day razzing my friends

I continued with racing, and thankfully I didn't sell my Nitro vehicles, or I'd had to buy the stuff all over again So I'd wait awhile until the honeymoon effect wears off on the Baja

BUT, if you are primarily a basher, NOTHING beats a 30lb truck and 45 minutes on a 1$ tank of fuel!!!

The new BZM single cylinder 50cc just came out, with a price of 2100 bucks though. It is a beast.

It's ok.... you can have two trucks - paint them alike and hope the wife doesn't notice one got bigger!!!!!!

My Baja



My SCTE



See, in pictures they look the same!!!!!!!

and really, we've been messing with women about size for generations - I think most are confused enough you can pull it off!!!!!!

PLUS, if you move to the Kansas City area you can race it at Timberline Raceway in Osawatomie, KS - 20' lanes and SC friendly!!!!!

Motor 3800...really, really good. Pinions..novak, ofna, robinson. I prefer Robinson... quality is better. The novak's seem to come with screwed up set screws and machining of threads. At least in the packs I have bought. Novaks are lighter(or seem to be) if that's a big deal to you?
