Haha well Kyle,Greg, and I were all at Racers Haven last night...and it was really fun!

Kyle and I were in the Ex.Buggy class(stock) and Greg ran Mod 4wd.

In Ex.Stock Buggy the biggest battle all night was with Kyle,Wayne(50% Losi),and me.

I ended up winning both the qualifiers setting Tq...then I think it went Wayne then Kyle.

The main ended up Wayne,Me,Kyle,Etc....So it was a pretty fun night! Im now tied for first in the points so we will see how the rest of the year goes!

I ran stock buggy today in preparation for the bigfoot. This was the first time I had raced stock offroad since nationals last year. I won my first qualifier and probably left the tq on the track. The only wrecks I had were due to contact from other cars. One a lap car, and the other 2nd place that caught up after the lap car incident and drove it in deep on me on the last corner. I shut the door on him, and luckily, I got the good end of it. Next round I did a few laps and landed on a pipe joint 2 laps in a row. The second time killed a rear hub. The third qualifier I popped the right rear suspension out on the practice laps. Turns out I didnt notice the cracked pivot plate. So we man handled the car back together and I was running top 3 when it let go for the final time. I qualified 2nd for the main, and got greedy on the first corner and came up short. I worked my way back up to 3rd a few times, and thats where I finished. Gearing ranged from 27-30 / 78 on a 13.5. The 29 was fast down the straight but I gave up too much on the technical double, table, double, double front section. So, I settled on a 27 (I think... the pinion is not marked). I got to wear my hoodie, and I was a nice comfortable temp all day and evening.

Billy, sounds like you had a pretty good time being

back at off-road!! And nice and warm in that new hoodie!

Now that Roar has settled on 17.5 being the "stock" motor,

I'm wondering if the tracks and races are following the new

rules, or still going by the rules they had to make themselves

because there weren't any rules?????

Good job AE14 !!!!!

Not bad for an old man like myself.....5 month lay off sure showed its ugly head on Friday night. Except in (dare i say it) gas truck! lol

19T truck.....insane fast....finally got to use my BANZAI motor! was super smooth in the heats..TQed by over a lap....then i actually put in a good battery and wow....to fast for me....started driving like Zack! HAHA....ended up 2nd....

It's not snowing!

Got to look at the glass as half full. I was not going to get to race this weekend anyway. The wife and oldest are going to some Hannah Montana event in LA!
