Well it was a great/crappy weekend here in Florida at the State Series Race. Qualifying I looked like I should have been in the novice class for the 1st qual, and in the second I really didn't do all that great but managed to put a run in that was good enough for 7th in the A. As the A-main got underway I managed to freight train all the way up to 2nd before the 1st lap was over(42-second laps) and in the process of passing the leader coming off of a cross-over when my servo horn BLEW-UP!!! Needless to say I was about 5 notches pass p*ssed off!! My buggy was NUTS!!! I got the setup figured out and had motor for days.... I was the only buggy that could triple a double-single consistently for 6 minutes!

Judi all I have to say is thanks for the awesome motors!!! My car was a ROCKET. That CO27 was amazing and the CP teardown was crazy fast in my 4wd (didn't run 4wd).

Believe me though....everyone down here in Florida knows to watch out when the Banzai Boys come to town.

Dude, Van Air was so dialed; and that motor was so fast. I thought the caddy was gonna grow wings and fly all the way to Showtime.

Great reports and terrific racing results! From Washington, California and Florida!! Thanks to all of you who traveled so far, glad it was worth the distance! And most of all, it sounds like everyone had a good time, that's what it's all about.

Sounds like our new CheckPoint tear-down mods are a big hit! So far, all the team guys and customers have LOVED them. The new KD 19 and Co27's are also quickly becoming favorites!

Jeremy, are you coming to Pegasus, or will you be the Losi rep at the Reedy?

Banzai Mom,

Like Jeremy said in the stock B it seemed like I caught the leader like 3 times I just got the short end of the stick a couple times. I know I was faster than he was. Oh well! In 19T I qualified 5th and moved up to third by lap 4 then it got ugly - finished 7th. I used the the Co27 in stock and the Komodo in 19T. Oh by the way my buddy Nick TQ'd Sportsman 19T with the new Komodo. Jeremey helped us out with gearing and that's all we needed, it was the first time we'd run those motors - they felt real strong.

Talk to you soon.

Greg

Mom- I will not be at Pegasus because of the Losi booth at the Reedy race. I'm sure our guys will be dialed though.

Yeti- I'm glad that gearing got you guys in the ballpark. It seemed good, but I honestly have no idea of what is/ isn't fast in on-road (as is painfully obvious everytime I hit the track ) I was really hoping that I wasn't screwing you over.

I was thinking that there are probably a lot of people out there

who don't have cameras, and don't know how to post pictures. Like me!!

So, I will be walking around the JBRL race at Pegasus with camera in hand

and will be taking pictures of anyone who needs Jeremy Felles body! I'll have Scott post them.

And just to make it more interesting, I'm throwing in a brand new Banzai CO27

stock motor for the winner!!!!!

Any team driver that wants to do the same, go ahead. Just make sure you get the phone number of the owners so I can call them if they win!!

NEW body!!

And also, that's what I will be taking pictures of, R/C Car bodies!!

Check several pages ago for Jeremy's rules on the contest!!
