Still recovering from the weekend of racing up at Hobbytown USA Fresno but definitely had a blast at the event. Cody did a great job running the event and the track was enjoyable. One note on the Team power 34R tires is they are not very balanced and some wheels are out of round. However the tire provides good traction and last very well which is great. I hope Team Power can look into it and improve the tire balance in the future.

Last Weekends race at Hobby Town Fresno was really fantastic. The crew put on a fantastic event and it went smoothly. Shout out to Panda for saving me the 6 hour drive to TQ for that T-Bar. A question for the locals. Do the guys who have KO's have problems with brown outs going down the back stretch? All 3 of my vehicles experienced this in varying degrees and I am curious. But that being that, great race and look forward to seeing you all at 702 round.

How about 165’ back straight big ! Was a lot of fun. Actually had 14 So Cal racers there. I forgot to count myself in the original count. A road trip race is a lot more fun when you have friends at the race to goof off with.

Great video you put together Izzy. Showed to a few of my coworkers so they now understand better what the heck we do on the weekends. Did you buy Tim’s dinner at Dickey’s Saturday night for the track side camera work ?

Does anyone know what type of servo savers are allowed? Is it only Tamiya or would I be able to run savers from other brands like Xray?

normally, they are open to anyone's as long as the chassis doesn't need to be modified to run it
