My name is Matt Stinnett. I have been racing off and on when I can in the northwest for about 12 years. If you have a problem with someone personally then take it to them. Don't hide behind a computer screen and pollute a forum that is designed to premote the growth of the r.c. racing comunity. All legitimate questions should be welcome however and answered without sarcasm....Thats my two cent's for what it's worth. looking forward to seeing all of you at future events.

My name is Jason Hoby, I enjoy long walks on the beach, reading poetry, and spending time expressing my feelings. You can usually spot me at the track by DFS on my shirt and a big sh*t eating grin on my face because I love racing these toys and hanging out with my hommies!

My name is Dave Kingman... in case my nick didn't give that away. I've been playing with RC since about 1990. I raced as a kid, took a long break, and started racing again about two years ago. I'm Vice President of Broadacres RC Club and sponsored and employed by RCPlus.

Exposed to RC in 82ish with a Mugen Bulldog AWD/AWS. I really got into it in 98 on a well-build local club track. Did a little traveling with my Kanai...loved the air at Bear Creek. Ran TRCR a little in the winters. A major injury and a few stints in other hobbies took me away for a few years, but I'm back, with my son this time!

Rookie or Ian either one gets my attention. I have been Into the hobby for about 9 years now. Ever since my brother law sold me a rustler, and said "be careful, it's fast" as I was slamming it in the curb at the parking lot we were running in.
I got into racing after my stent of mt's and bashers, lots of upgrading and learning. Finally drove me to take up my love for competition. Started running the pro series (which was my first BIG race) and was scared to death. Now days I am known as web guy for the ORCNT's. I have been very thankful this year to be able to give back, and as well help by bringing the sponsors that I spend so much talking to, into our series.

I'd tell you my name, but all you have to do is look at my signature below and you'll see it! Personally, I'd like to see everyone on this forum put their name in the signature.

Started racing offroad with my then 14 year-old son, Cory, at Hometown Hobbies/A-Main Raceway about 1996 or so. A couple of years later, he became enchanted with the young ladies...there went racing!

After watching the ROAR On-road Nats in Portland, I got the racing bug again. I race to have fun. I am a mediocre driver who will probably never have the driving skills to be thought of anything other than...well...mediocre. I just love to do it.

I am a member of Rose City Scale Racing (RSCR) and Team Timezone. During the non-rainy season I race an Xray NT1 at RCSR and Timezone Raceway Park. During the rainy season, I race on carpet, primarily at Timezone II. I race an Xray T2 '008 (rubber tire), a CRC Gen-XL 1/12th pan car and occasionaly a CRC/McKune 1/10th WGT pan car.

September 4th, I'll be leaving for Las Vegas and the International Indoor Championships (IIC). My goal is to NOT finish last in either of my classes! I hope to race well enough not to embarass myself. I'm sure those who know me will understand.

See my sig below.

Aeron Braukman here. I've been racing at Portland R/C Raceway for a couple weeks, after a 13 year hiatus, with my son Wyatt. I really started racing at A-main up in Vancouver back in '96-'97. Although I did have an old Kyosho 4wd buggy in the early/mid 80's that I tried to race a couple times.

I'm just enjoy the competition and R/C cars.

Have fun!
