I gotcha. I'm in the process of setting up my xray to asphalt mode. I should of done what you have, one set of shocks/springs for carpet and one for asphalt. Redoing Xray shocks are time consumming and time is not something that I have a lot of these days. LOL

I'm hoping for some good weather Sunday 2 more days to go till we're airbound

John
It would definately be a couple long days, I'm assuming you got directions and everything to the track right?

Yes, I visited the website and got mapquest directions from RT15. I confirmed that we can have a car to make the trip and my sisters BF has a link and will do mapquest directions as well. Looking forward to it!

I dont know if we'll race that. It was shipped out yesterday and will arrive tomorrow. But he's never raced RC cars so a big event like this to start might not be good. Oh no, I just checked the weather and the big R might be coming into the area on Sunday. What will happen, if it rains than the race will be canceled?

Can you change it to Friday the 27th so I can still race in the event in case of rain on the 22nd? Help out a guy flying across the country to participate in your event

[B]LOL! that was suppose to be a secret... There is a secret brush that I've been working on since the beginning of the year and have proven to draw so much rpm that I don't think it'll last as long but will surely win big races. Only problem with motors is that there are always new stuff coming out from Trinity and Reedy so stocking a bunch of the cans might put me in the reds. LOL. We're considering some custom built cans from the existing ones since they can be definately made a lot faster.




Mr Fukuyama (or Jimmy if you prefer) I believe I emailed you about a possible event sponsorship (and I apologize to everybody in this thread for this little commercial break). Correct me if I'm wrong
