I have a Supra body you could borrow. Unfortunately you would have to like blue and white.

$88 dollars.... that's about how much it will cost for a round trip ticket to Japan with all your frequent flyer miles?

Looks like the off-road track is coming along quite well for the TamTech Shooutout.

Will there be any "racer deals" available on these little guys the weekend of the race for those of us that want to play in the dirt?

Well.........Traveling next week just got a bit more interesting.

I hope they let me carry my car/TX/batteries on the airplane, but I'm hearing stories of even having to put cell phones in checked baggage now!

So far it is only liquids that cannot be carried on.
Even if you bought a bottle of water in the terminal after the checkpoint.
No can do. . . for boarding.

Europe is having a ban on carry-on luggage period!

I am flying out tomorrow. I will see if over the weekend I can post some valuable info here. I am carrying on 2 cars, 2 radios, 2 chargers and magazines to prove what I have. Lucky for me my wife is coming along. . . I am only carrying on my most fragile items.

I have been hearing 2 hour lines at carry-on check-point. I am planning for 3 to 3 1/2 hours. If you are in a hurry, you might want to check everything in. . .

Jeff

As I saw it last weekend, it was still flat. Fred said something about having some guys come and work on the track and use the existing dirt to build it, but there isn't much there to use. What is left on the dirt track is a mess. A lot of little spikey things that take an hour to get off your shoes and car.

Wish me luck

I resemble that remark too. . .

I mentioned earlier about carry-ons. This is the 1st time in 13 RC Race trips that I did not carry on anything RC related, well maybe a magazine. Between what I have been reading and a friend that travels alot said,. . . My nightmare would be to have on 2 carry-on bags that they would say have to be checked in. Upon arrival into Orange County I would have a bag of parts due to insufficient packaging.

One report did say no electronic devices other than a cell phone and laptop. The terrorists were planning on using an electronic flash from a disposable camera that would detonate the liquids. So being my 13th RC related trip, I had to sidestep bad-luck. . .

The rules keep changing every hour. The US changed their checkin policy nation wide which was an incredible effort in less than 4 hours. I decided to take advantage of our checkin bag limit, between the two of us which is 6 checked in bags. Feels like a Uhaul would be easier. . .
