Guys we need to stop feeding the troll now. I guess I started it, but hey, we all know that drifters always have the right of way. Kinda like the handicapped.......

I'm all for people getting into RC what ever way they want to. But cars are made for specific applications and locations. Race tracks are not the place for drift cars. It's like taking a TMAXX to a carpet track.

Congrats to both Chris and Eddie.

I don't think Chris did it on purpose but you shouldn't blame a drifter for being in the track. Why would the drifter think otherwise since i'm assuming he paid to get track time. If you have issues with drift cars, micros or anything else touching the grounds of Socal you should take it up with the track operator and not the people paying good money to get thier track time. Gotta agree that this person needs to get over it.

Congrats to Brood on a good signing.

I agree with you to some extrent, but like anyone else including stock, guys running mabuchi's, etc., you give room for the faster guys. Chris didn't hit him intentionally, but like driving 20mph in the fast lane on a freeway, it causes accidents.

It's not even about them being slower, it's the amount of track space they take up. All that tail out stuff takes up around twice the amount of racing room as a normal car would on the race track, and it's moving like 80% slower than a RACE car.

I'm not opposed to drifting, I'm not even opposed to sharing the track with drifters, but you ALWAYS yield to traffic that's that much faster. It's racetrack ettiquette(sp?) 101.

Ok here is one for the haters. Just today here at Snowbirds I witnessed Toso working very hard to help fix a new racer that was running in stock rubber. The kid got to the driver stand for his qual and something was wrong with his car, Toso moved fast to fix it for him so he could run. It looked like it was the kids first race and his dad was there with him. That's what this sport is all about! True story.

Dood that happens all the time with Chris if he see's you running a Corally he will help when you are in need..The only thing thats gets to him is when he tries to help you out and you blow him off..

Weither its Blackstock or a young kid Toso will always go that extra mile to help out the guys running Corally's..or ANY other car for that matter..

You were not there,
I personally know the people who were damaged.

If schumacher crashed into me on purpose. that would just show the type of hate mentality that exhist in on road racing.

I don't care if it was president bush, Mike helton, if they crashed into me on purpose it still would not make it right.

If this is the kind of person you want to sponser, that is well and good.
I will throw away all of my team brood motors. and buy elsewhere.

thank you tosso for opening the track, that was very professional.

well peel the labels off of your corally, schumacher, yokomo, reedy, fantom, brood, SMC, pole-position, novak, LRP, Airtronics, parma, protoform, kyosho, brood, etc. products bacuse they have supported or currently do support chris in some way...

you truly are a douche bag... drifting is about the stupidist thing i have ever seen, in any scale... and i had a friend get seriously injured in a vehicle accident here in washington bacuse some guy was "drifting" in his 80's nissan.

heres a hot tip... hondas and nissans are gay... in r/c and real life
and another... drifting is gay... driving out of control is easy, i see women doing it everyday

anyways, thanks for not buying from the above comapanies, we are much happier without your business

Wayne, there was a ton of witnesses to the incident.....then the guy came online making all these threats online.....the guy simply acted like an ass.....so, people, myself included acted like an ass right back...


Your choice on where you want to buy motors from....I believe we have served you well, but if you are going to quit using the products because of an accident at the track, then so be it....you have not bought one in 8 months anyways...

Further more....Stop using corally, novak, much more, jaco, parma, airtronics, etc, etc....all toso sponsors.

Later EddieO

do you really want them to answer this question? There's just too many pics of you in a dress out there for you to deny the fact that you enjoy sharing snickers with other guys.
