CR that sux!! I plan on running some gas and some electric. Mostly Mod electric. I'd like to plunge right in with lipo/brushless.

On a side note, I just realized my table is at McCullough's, can anyone bring a spare table?

Sorry guys

Probably a hug from you and a kiss from Foreman, Sammy! I've been severly hurt by your sick humor and will probably not recover for some time~!

Doug, Chuck, whoever may be in charge of construction......I have some 4'x8'x 3/4" plywood we can use. Not sure what all we could use it for but it would work rather well for a ramp into the new building. Since I am working in altoona now I will be spending more time at the track practicing this year. Are you going to be over there every night now that it is carpet season? I would like to get in there as soon as poss. so i can claim my pit spot.

Awesome racing today guys ... thanks for the fun. Whoever was marshaling the last turn at the end of the long strait away I was not trying to kill you my steering servo was acting up and I had to try to power slide through the turns, sorry for the few close calls.

Tothinator, what was the steering servo you recommended for my Truggy? What model radio were you telling me to look for on eBay?

See you guys next spring

Steve / JamZ28 - You did a great job hustling your truggy around the track with a bad servo. I would strongly recommend gettting a $100 servo to match your driving ability like a Airtronics 93458Z.

But for around $50 a Futuba S3305 would do just fine or even a Futuba S3050 for around $35.

See you next off road season!

I would like to thank Chuck and Doug for all the time and work the put into the track this Off Road Season. The track just keeps getting better every year. Love the new clay! We had some great races throughout the season.

Somehow I was able to eek out some wins and the season points series in Mod Truck and Gas Truck. The weird thing was that I had no plans to even be in 1/10 scale when the season began. But, thanks to some other true 1/10 enthusiasts, I got back to racing what I like the most.

I especially want to thank Chuck Meyers with hooking me up with stuff that flat out works - the GT2 and Dynamite Platinum motor. And I also want to thank Doug Meyers in Mod Truck and Jim McCully in Gas Track for making me work so hard to really earn it. (And Roeder for being too busy to race every weekend!).

Also congrads to Sam and Brad for their points wins. Brad is easily the most improved driver this year 'Eye of the tiger' Brad!

Maybe the turnout wasnt the best ever, but, the quality of racers has improved a lot and I'm already looking forward to see you all and doing it again next year.

Default Offroad Season

Ed congrats on the championship's. How in the world did you beat out Jim in GT being behind him by a full round ???Thanks for all the help this season by all,especially Ed,Jim,and Brian Roeder. You all have made my foray into offroad enjoyable! "SPECIAL" thanks go's to Brad in making raceday enjoyable with your humor!!!!!!! See you guys at the carpet track though I'm not sure if I can swing the money to get a ride to have some fun! I have been reminded by the wife that hunting season and Christmas is coming and I better have $$$$$$$ for both!!!!!!!!! Maybe I will unload both my ftgt's and get a carpet ride.lol! That would give me an excuse to get a gt2 and upgrade my t4 for next year!lol Had a blast with you all talk at ya later......... Thanks Brian Daugherty



Also thanks to d4man for the use of the soldering iron on raceday 9/30!
