I want whoever painted that body to paint mine. Looks beautiful. Those Sweeps look good on any car.

You'll need a good looking body for the GP race!!!... Also, I picked up a RV, let me know some of the dates for the great events the you folks put on down south. I want to see if they match up with any of my travel dates!!!

We will be indoor electric for a couple more months, then the nitro comes out. Some are planning on the RCPRO series nationals in Texas on April 13-15. Then the IIC race in Vegas in Oct. We will be doing a state champ race later in the summer. We'll keep you posted. It would be a kick to have some of the Timezone crew come out.

The last time I spoke to Rick; he mentioned that it would fall on the same weekend as last year, 3rd week in July... 19-23 would be my guess... but that could change so stay tuned!

Hope you can make it out Mark. We will be bringing 6 or 7 GT guys from here and they had the Sweep 50 as a spec tire last year. They worked great.

Just came back from the Texas Nitro Winter Series final round at Porter, TX. I TQ'ed and finished 2nd in this final round. There was an awesome battle between my car and my friend Shawn B's car. My car was in the lead until about 30 seconds left in the race then the 1st spur gear from the 2speed went out and ended up in 2nd place. The video clip pretty much tells the story of what happened. However, I was lucky enough and took home the 1st place award for finishing 1st in the point series. This track and the overall facility is absolutely awesome. The fantastic GT racers here in Texas are great bunch of guys indeed. Can't wait to go back and have some more fun!!!!

I would like to thank IGT hobbies, Sweep Racing Tires, Desoto Racing, and Radiopost for providing me all the GT parts, best GT tires, Novarossi engine and the fantastic radio equipment I needed for this race.
