I've got an 1/8 E-Buggy I put together last year and I'd like to have that a regular class this year. One suggestion for E-Buggy is no longer than a 10 min A main. Last year with the Nitro A mains I just finished before I was hitting lipo cut out. Otherwise with ST making a come back ill be running my basher Rustler for a 2nd class

I think a 7 min main sounds great. Standing up there for 15 mins gets to be a little much especially at the end of the day. That's partially why I suggested 10. I'm just happy I won't have to be doing anymore mandatory pit stops.

Unbelievable..... 1 time a year! Just when I thought nitro was picking up again. It was nice going to h2 every Sunday and seeing at least 30 nitros...

I think had the numbers for nitro been greater the ability to add additional Nitro races would have been easier. But on the one day a month we hosted nitro races we were lucky to field 1 heat and a couple of the "nitro" days ended up being all electric. In the future I think Race'em would like to offer more nitro but if we cant offer multiple heats on any given nitro day we aren't seeing the demand for nitro. The group over at H2 do a great job with the nitro program and the following for nitro seems to be greater east but in Rockford Electric has a greater following. We are hoping for a huge turn out for our nitro race this year.

The new transponders will relay the ambient temp, and your Voltage on your truck.. So, tell your friends that Race Em R/C is ready for the new stuff! haha.. Can not wait for outdoor to start!

Yes know it well, Just think to race at your track at night will be pretty cool. Looking forward to this summer all ready.

Haven't seen any comments about the banquet. How'd it go. Who's design and let's see what it looks like so we can pick it apart. Seeing that Forbes magazine has ranked rockford 3rd most miserable place to live and I am so sick of our seasons around here currently pot hole season, need some to chat about. JZ when the demo happened did the power that supplied the house and garages get left so when can tap in and run power over to the stand. little 100amp service action?
