I really think the shame of the whole "caught running electric" thing has been too much for Pooh to deal with in public.

Whats good fellaz? Yeah it's true, I was doing the electric thing. It was really cool. I have a new sponsor Rcthundrhobbies and he likes 12 scale and thought it would b a good idea 4 me 2 give it a try. I had lots of fun and I look foward 2 racing again soon. I never thought I'd b racing electric but I'm glad I gave it a chance. I should have listen 2 u guys years ago. I know I'm gonna give alotta guys hell when nitro season start!! Hope 2 c u guys this weekend at southshore hobbies. Rcthunderhobbies is having a big trophy race there this weekend. Tropys r REALLY nice!!! I'll try and post pics later.

South Shore is a lot of fun. Those boards are not too forgiving, but the place is a lot of fun. I have been there a few times.

It really was shocking I guess to see such a NITRO advocate racing electric. Sohlman and I both have pics so if ever the day comes and blackmail is necessary we know what we have to do... I am going to make a post on our home forum just to mark this revelation in RC HISTORY....LMAO....

Seriously I jumped in this year and the stick time is great and I love it. I picked up a few sponsors and in just a short time have developed a true love for 1/12 scale racing.

As someone posted any racing is better than no racing and to be honest the comp level is really high and the stick time and hand to eye skills improve as the car is agile. I know for a fact that this will be a regular off season and an occasional (nitro) on season thing for me...

1:12th doesnt count though . Not like those dang 190mm tourers . 1:12th really helps improve your reflexs and lines to no ends. Pays dividends when you hit the track again with a Nitro. Even Mini-Z or the latest Pro 27 classes are great fun. Just wish 1:12th could make a comeback here. It died here in the 80's when 1:10th electric buggies became the main thing to race indoor .

Pooh, you dogged me for years because I raced electric on the side. Payback is a bitch, playa. You still have "nitro finger" too...blipping the throttle in the corners.

Very true Sohlman. 12 scale a jumpoff 4 me. It's cool and I gotta admit I like it. But I love my MRX4R. I'm still a gas guy.

Just wait till you stop blipping the throttle in the corners. Then when you go back to 1:8th next season you will be scratching your head wondering why you are going 2 secs a lap faster all of a sudden
