Nah, Its hosted in England. It would still be up if it were hosted in Pakistan. When it comes to IT Pakistan is more advanced than England.

I got a week and a day before I get to play with Tessa again....LOL Look out Ripon here I come......and I'm even bringing smash along. If we kick Rob out of the pits it will be an all MI2 pit I think I'm going to switch back to my 2.5 adjustable chassis for this race then get my BMI afterwards.

Got my overdrive set-up on my new BMI chassised MI2. Will test it out tomorrow at 4funhobbies, Hesperia and Sunday for thier last race. They are closing down at the end of the month.
Will run the standard drive for starters then switch to the overdrive. Will let everyone know Sunday night when I get back.

Closing down???? That was a dialed track. The owners were waaaaay cool. I wish them luck in what ever they do once the doors are closed.

Yea, it was dialed. Too bad. Its amazing that this happens. Manufactures really need to step up and support tracks. Where do you think they test all the time is tracks like this. It would help themselves. Something needs to be done. It seems in the states and CA in particuliar that it is so hard for a track/hobby store owner to keep doors open. It is too expensive as to city business fees, insurance and I'm sure there are a hundred other things that cost. Scott and Gail put thier heart and soul into this facility. The location was I suppose too little of retail business to keep going. It would probably take 10 times more support from racers that just didn't happen.

So here in southern Calif., there is hardly anywhere to race. I have no where local to practice during the week which makes it really hard for me. All are 1.5 to 2.5 hours away.

Wouldn't it be nice to have a permanent track that's less than 100 miles away so we get some mid week practice in and not have to drive to the track Saturday and get a hotel just for a one day race on Sunday?

Tell me about it. My home track is Speedworld in Rosevile, right at a 2 hour drive. Luckily I got bros that give me a place to crash when I come down.

I've got to drive to Gilroy before I turnaround and head back to Ripon. 7 hours of driving before the race but it's always worth it. Wonder if any Losi's will show up for your challenge?

Not talking trash but I haven't seen one work too well in the average club racers hands. James has been the only guy that gave me a run for my money but we all know why he has been dialed It's a friendly challenge that only I can pull off. That will be the buzz in the pits next weekend. I will also rock the mic during qualifying and the mains. Fun is the only thing I'm looking to have.........along with my mod win

Yeah, I agree about James, it's definately the 'roids. We should institute mandatory drug testing for all races in Norcal.
