A nice cold one or two for the end of the day. A spare is always good to give to the guy you borrowed a bunch of stuff from all day.

I am going to wrap it in vinyl. Or use one of the decals from hudy!

I did that, and added adjustable screws on the corners so I can level out the board if the serface it's used on isn't level.

Got that beat. 99 ROAR Stock Off Road Nats. Left my ENTIRE tool box back home. Had my batts, charger, tools, you name it. Only thing I had was my Truck and transmitter. The transmitter went belly up on me right after practice.

Add back up radio to the Necessary Items List.
How would I describe my holeshots?

Three words...

Ready... Steady... Confetti!!!! (gonna need a new one of those)
