Default Pitstop Hobbies, Mount Joy, PA 2012 Season

The 2012 season schedule is now up at www.pitstophobbies.net
Help is needed this year on the track prep for the year and week to week on Thur. eve.
Paul and I will still be there from time to time when we have time.
If anyone can help, call the shop. Phone number is listed on the website.

My wife will not be back as the race announcer this year as she has started with her masters degree.

See you all at the track when I can get there.

Spec SC, 4WD SC, and Mod Buggy are the 3 most popular classes, and I would assume they are the best bets for this year. I would love to see Mod Truck as a regular class, if it really got going I'd be tempted to get one.

I am probably gonna run Mod SC this year, unless 17.5 gets a better turnout. Both those classes were kinda dead last year...I'll have both motors so I can run whatever, but I am curious to see what everyone prefers.

I'll be up for spec if it will be anything like last year. I finally managed to get a good setup on my 4wd. I'll be good to go with that if a spec class doesn't form.

I think 17.5 will be dead, plus I just don't like the idea of a 17.5 class. I liked what Chris did this year at bumps. Mod and spec. Mod was super competitive the whole year. Heck, I made the A main a couple times in mod with my spec truck. It's hard for me to see a purpose to 17.5 outside of a Roar race.

I will be running spec also...it's probably the biggest class there, I can't imagine it'll go away.

Was wondering wtf happened to you. Good to hear it's just another toy. I was worried something happened since you pretty much disappeared towards the end of the season.

Is that why you ran to New York after I beat you in mod with my spec truck?

Can't wait to see you at Pit Stop again. For some reason completely unknown to me, I actually kind of miss you racing... but only a little.
