Say what now?

Were there questionable individuals hanging out at the track? I believe we were asked to contact the city (or was it the Police?) to report undesirable activities at the track. Maybe Todd can confirm?

It might be a little late to ask, but I was wondering if anyone happened to find a 1/12th body after ECC this year.

It's a Pink\White\Purple body with stars. I was going to drop the car down at a local track and realized I can't find my body.

I think vandalism and inappropriate use of the track is expected. That's what we get for living in a "free" society. But, reporting these abuses should help to keep things under control, I would hope.

A great show of hands today at the track. With just wheelbarrows, shovels, rakes, and strong backs we made 12 yards of dirt disappear. It's really coming around. And to think it's not even summer yet!

Definitely a good day, thanks also to all those how chipped in to help. That pile of dirt was pretty big, it would have been a long morning without all the extra hands, and hand tools.

I realize I showed up late, but everything seemed to go really fast and smoothly! I tried to put in my fair share of the work by doing dirt roller duty, and this time it didn't get a chance to tear up my leg!

The track looked great when I was leaving, I plan to stop by tomorrow to play on it for a while. We really do have a great thing going here!

I am going to try to escape husband and dad duties and make it out to the track around noon. If you see anybody driving an obnoxiously bright orange Tamiya 1/10 buggy, say hi! I just got done with this shell (I have given up on fancy paintjobs), can't miss it:

I am excited to finally get out there!

Thanks dude! My first shell / body I spent a LOT of time painting it with multiple colors using liquid mask. It has been a while, but the first day I spent learning at a real track, it was trashed. This is what it looked like new and before I learned what I really needed for this car and a lot of $ spent on TRF upgrades:

I know I am an oddball for running Tamiya buggies, mine works though and it is a joy to work on.

Has anyone formed any strong opinions on what tires work well out here? i had my slash 4x4 with the Kumho Road Venture tires i got with it and they werent working out to well.

Someone on here mentioned Calibers If I remember right. My buddy was running the bar codes he uses at TRCR and they were doing well for him.
