It was fun putting a name with a face with a bunch of you and hopefully I can make it again next year.
It is wild how you can do that. I know you have the computer helping you out but I still can't keep all of that straight. You make the difference between knowing what is going on and just watching some cars go around the track. That is the difference between getting into it and walking away disinterested. Thanks again Dirla.

I still have 86 more videos to finish uploading. Keep checking this thread to see when they are done.
I guess the pressure is off for me to get my videos uploaded. Nice work on having complete coverage. I would not have been able to pit where you did, getting stepped on or stepped over all of the time. And I just got caught up in keeping my rides together to be filming all of the time. The other thing you did really well was to recruit other people (including me) to man the camera while you were racing. I had trouble keeping on the leader when running your camera. That happens after the lead changes a few times and you realize the guy you are following is no longer in the lead. I had to wait for Dirla to call him out to get back on it.

Again nice work. I will still put up some of my footage. Some of it is a pretty neat perspective.

Sorry dude I was getting my wires crossed with something that Myron said. He actually had to turn away a few people not knowing that in the end there would be room for them. This because some guys paid and then did not show.

So yeah I am sorry that it looked random and that is where that came from.

This is just a walk through the pits for those who have never been to Thunder RC or the USVTA Southern Nationals.

Remember the steering knuckle being wallowed out. It kept dropping screws out and I eventually lost the King pin collar. So it did that thing where it got loose on several qualifiers through out the weekend. Don't get me wrong. I would have sucked anyway, but the chassis did fail on multiple runs.

Thunder guys if you see a king pin collar for a Photon let me know.

Here is some Random Hat cam footage.
