amen to all...

i got out for about 7 years in the mid to late 90's, sold everything cause i wasnt coming back but i couldnt stay away, i love this sport,
but now with a growing family to support it has been cut back, droped to silver can 540 class, and race at a track that you only need to replace sorex 28's once a year, and dont go for the bling..... bigest cost at the moment is the accual race fee....

rc forever.

BIG DAVE

For me the fun part of racing is taking it seriously and racing at the highest level possible, wether it be club, national or worlds level. I like thinking about every aspect of the car and thinking how can I make it faster. I like running a very structured testing program to try and improve the car. It is really a buzz changing something on the car and finding you are a 1/10th of a second a lap faster with the new change. And I love putting new parts on the car, wether they be lighter, stronger or what.

In saying all that I usually recharge my racing batteries about once a year by having a few months of racing in the winter and I aleways come back with more desire than ever to win.
