Default Greetings from Japan

Hey guys,

Going to the track for practice today. We get (3 or 4) 3 minute practice sections , hopefully my base setup is close. I will try to provide updates and pics throughout the weekend. It's 2:30am here and can't sleep.

BTW, went to the Tamiya headquarters yesterday, that place was awesome!

Good night hopefully,

Bensi

Hello from Japan everyone.

The 2013 champions made it to Japan safely, though we did miss our second train, but we got to the hotel in plenty of time to chow down on some Sushi. There are a lot of fast racers here, but our guys are getting it sorted out well with qualifying starting in less than 10 hours. Lee's car is in the top 5 right now as is Solomon's. Bensi has been getting help from the locals and should be in the hunt after round one. Sean's F-1 car started off not too well, but I have helped him get it sorted and it's been getting better each and every practice round.

I have attached some pics to show you all our happy fun going champions.
