I wish that you were right because the truth is just what you said, "WE ARE GROWN MEN RACING TOY CARS FOR BOWLING TROPHYS". If anyone needs to cheat then they may have BIGGER ISSUES than being thrown out of a RC car race.. Hope we all have a good time and enjoy the weekend! I am really looking forward to the RACE. See you Friday.

Your VTA and USGT podium trophies. 1st place 5ft, 2nd 4ft, 3rd 3ft

If you plan on taking one of these home, make sure you save space in the car for the ride home.

Those will look very nice displayed at The Track in Winthrop Harbor, IL. I know we will have space in the car with numbers of our participants coming down.

Sad but true. Unfortunately for me no one would care if I cheated. Still cant catch them.

At home I use an old metal mailbox. It makes a nice little containment area, unfortunately its a bit big for my pitbag. I wonder how an ammo can would hold up to a lipo going off in there.
