Exclamation Super Nitro

Anyone living in the N.Va,Md and Dc area and wants to race super nitros can post here. I've had a request to try to see how many people in this area with super nitros that are interested in getting that class back again. When I raced in the super nitro class a couple years ago I had a blast but that class wasn't big enough. There were a few tracks here and there with a few supers. I think if every super nitro owner went to the same tracks to race then there would have been better luck in keeping this class. I still race my super at the hpi challenge but even that (hpi challenge) is fading. It usually takes about five people to start a new class at most tracks.

I think we need to pay Linville a visit in the near future! See if yo can find out when there will be a lot of people there, and we will go to show them a few things.

I've always wanted to give Linville a try. I heard it's a pretty cool track. I will most certainly look into it Paul. Heard you guys got rained out yesterday, where will you be racing this weekend?

Nice! I ran an os15cvr and I shaved the rims down and mounted my own foams. It did pretty well running with the impacts. I always ran faster lap times with my super than my touring.

I have no complaints with my r40. Very pleased performance wise. The mugens are getting a run for their money. 04 upgrade kit is on the way from Japan. Do you run r40 also?

Thanks for the info. Dougs is in Waldorf MD. and we also race at Olde Towne Hobby Shoppe Manassas VA. Dougs Races on Saturdays and Olde Towne race on Sundays. WWW. oldtownhobby.com or www. doughobbies.com I think.

Paul: I must have missed you. I arrived around 3:30. I'm pretty sure you got your car to hook up as you always do.
