It just seemed that good foams are hard to source. There are several rubber tires that (except for certain spoked kronos) are readily available and based on this last weekend (running ipanemas and krono rally dish wheeled) running I was good with rubber tires. Not foams... but available

Brian 'MJ' Thomas has confirmed he will attend the Motonica GP. He won the sedan class 2 years ago, this time around he'll have a new car so watch out.

Here is one of our eMP9's (LiPo powered MP9, Kyosho 1/8th buggy) last Saturday - the announcer said - "careful that's a steep jump"...


The landing, well, was sad...

slash bash for cash...not sure if that's an rc event or something that happens late at night

I'll talk to Rich T and try to schedule a Slash race on Saturday after quals are over, and maybe squeeze in some Slash practice between rounds, time permitting. Maybe we can make some wooden jumps....

I was thinking of having an old timer's shootout race as well on Saturday...
