Yeah, definitely had fun yesterday. It was great hanging out with everyone. Had fun racing against some of the guys from Cruzin. Some good racers.

Too bad my racing sucked. I don't think I've ever come in last in a main. Qualified 2nd in 4wd sct after the first qualifier, then it was all downhill from there. Trying to eliminate the tekno nose dive with this stiffer spring setup has made my car much more difficult to drive consistent (obviously). Combined with tazers, my car was just too twitchy. Interestingly enough, I tried blockades in the 3rd qualifier and had my best run, as it toned down the steering, mostly because I had less traction. it's just everyone else had good runs, too. Then, went back to tazers and got screwed. Still fun racing with everyone though in 4wd sct. Got some work to do on my cars.

Just wanted to say I had a blast again this year racing with all of you at RCHR this summer. My summer outdoor 1/10 season has come to an end. Next time I see y'all is November unless anyone is headed to RCE this October or the Nova Rossi race here in NY next week. Lookin forward to the Grand Prix! John, just so I'm prepared............should I bring a set of Aqua Treads? Oh yea BTW, I got that last corner stored away on file. Seriously though, thanks to everyone up at RCHR that makes the magic happen. And a BIG thanks to The Asian AKA Chop sticks AKA Eric! That mans got a heart of gold!! Yer the man Eric, thanks for everything bro!! Finally, to my arch nemesis............ Reinaldo Vega, your always keeping me on point, gotta run flawless when you run with him! Can't wait to throw down inside again! I still owe ya one!! Be good guys, see ya in the fall!

I know your pain on the 4WD SC. Struggled in the 1st 2 quals and decided that was enough.

It was great racing with you this summer, George. Enjoy the remainder of your outdoor season with 8th scale, and I'll see you in the Fall/Winter!

Default Bark at the Moon

Wow the bark at the moon race was Great! John put in an amazing fun and challenging layout that left me wanting to come back. I thank all the people who spent time putting that track together. It was a lot of fun. I will be back soon. Thank you all and see you soon
