That's awesome!!!! I was at that Fast Tracks race running Dominator for Team Pitstop...I see Lil'Jon in the video I remember the pits were flooded and I was riding around with Darren in his 4wd Jeep. Oh and we had M200 firecrackers; we were fixing them to rocks and throwing them into the lake and blowing up fish...I guess that wasn't very nice

Thats where I started, ala Tamiya Fox . I remember I moved up to 4wd modified (think they called it the digger class, not sure) with a Turbo Optima Mid. I was so young at the time it was a blast. I got a revtech mod and I thought it was the $hit, that and some skoal bandit decals .

I also recall an indoor offroad track, and an offroad track behind a shop (Hobbytron I beleive). I still have a magnum jr radio and some cars from that era...

Hey John on the Skoal Bandit decals it says you have to be 18 years of age or older to purchase stupid decals.It's not like the decals can give you throat cancer. How funny is that............

Check out the pics of the Skoal decals and the old CAM and Rev-Tech motors VINTAGE STUFF
