I am almost ready! My parts got here at noon Friday, worked on cars for 8 hrs last night, then since 8am til now. Just need to get 4x4 shocks rebuilt and ESC soldered up. Can someone bring a soldering iron tomorrow and hook me up on a solder job? For some reason I cant solder to save my life. My iron tip wont stay tinned at all, and most of my solder doesn't stick to poles on ESC/motor...... Thinking it may be my solder, but I dont know.

Cool no problem, I'll be there tomorrow. I'll be the stocky bald guy racing a red slash and my mini 8. My name is Tom and I'll hook you up.

You didnt mess me up. You did a pretty good job for it being your second time on a track. You will be the one to watch out for when you get the right tires and more wheel time. See you soon.

Default Sunday's race (jan 8th)

We had a good day of racing last Sunday.

We opened two new classes:
-Buggy 4wd open
-Mini

SCT 2wd stock had a good showing even with a few regulars not showing up..

Christmas presents had a role I believe.

The best thing that I observed this week was the racing was a lot faster and cleaner. It was great(especially when you were marshaling). SCT 2wd open had a new record posted this week:

SCT 2wd open: Geoff Arnold with a 17.77(I-Zuk ran a 18.25 which is still fast, but Geoff was flying this weekend). Nice driving guys!

One of our own Brandon "run it" Reed whooped everyone in buggy 2wd open with a fast lap 0f 18.82 and a A main win run of 16/6:02. Which was an upset because Hoffman was our TQ. I always wondered what keeping your kits and tires clean would do for you..I do remember a guy stating that would never help!

We hope to see everyone come out and racing in the weeks to come. If the competition keeps getting better we will all be faster...or at least that is the goal.

Remember Rama is coming!
