looking through the entry list I see a lot of familiar names...

I'm looking at Richard St. Cyr (last years amature rubber tire champion) to make some noise in 13.5 Rubber (given that TimeZone is about the most amazing place to run in the history of r/c) and Mod Foam! I'm thinking Mike Hanulec is going to get the sandbag award in 17.5 rubber...



with roughly 231 total entries and more people to sign its going to be a PACKED week!

Looking forward to the 3 pronged race:

- Physical endurance: up until 3am, still drunk but in my pit by 6am.
- Mental endurance: "I see 3 cars where mine should be, I'm driving the middle one",
- Actually driving/wrenching: "why won't my hands stop shaking? They don't do this at my home track! I'm just putting the body on!"



hope to see you guys in ish' of 46 days!

LOL, I think it was two years ago, me and someone were playing roulette and really "on fire" won close to a grand, then we left the table at about 2AM or so. Sat down in the little lobby area thing by the elevator, looked at each other and with out saying anything, stood up and walked back to the table. Next thing you know, we see racers strolling by the table with their sweet RC Shirts on. Look at the time to find practice is about to start and both of us have 12th scales to run............ So to the track we go. I think I lost everything I had won, plus some more. But it was fun at the time.

We'll steal Tennies's drills, and make race cars out of them. He'll never notice.

There are only 3 guys pre-registered that wear a medium sized shirt, everyone else is a large or bigger.

Who says this is a little mans sport? lol.

Hi everyone,

Well I am still alive. Just been a crazy couple of weeks for me. I am currently abou 1 hour outside of Budapest Hungry announcing a 1/8th scale event.

Entry list is up to date so far. There are still some guys we are waiting for payment on, but that is what we have so far.

The World Champ Marc Rheinard is entered as well as Jilles Groskamp and Viktor Wilck. So the Tamiya boys will be there in full force.

Team RC America/X Ray are attending, we are just waiting for their entry list.

Jamie and I have all the rules down, I just need to get the chance to type them up and post. Will be the 10hr plane ride home to do this.

Things are going great for the race and we are all very excited to see you guys in our favorite stomping ground. Vegas Baby!

We are in a very remote village here in Hungry so I can only get internet at the organizers house and that is not every night, so if you dont here from me in a couple of days, I will be back online Tuesday.

Mean while. Post your questions and my guys will do all they can to answer.

Thanks everyone.
Scotty
