Next Wed Jan 27th
we are going to try and race offroad
$10 entry
racing at 7pm
2 rounds and mains.

The plan is for me to let the computer run the heats and I will call the mains.
If all goes well I would like to switch and maybe do this after the freeze and all next season - so I have to try it and see what the happens.

That would be cool. Lets go offroad racers here is your chance to race more. Most offroad guys wanted another day of offroad so lets make it count.

Agh, i stripped my spur gear on the first round (1/8th buggy), the mesh was fine but the motor block was loss.

I ordered a few, just in case. LOL

I'm going to tear this car apart and make sure everything is 110%, i should be back on the 31th.

When you say "switch" does that mean no more Sundays or both Wednesdays and Sundays?

Yeah dude that spur was toast! I've ground the teeth down on a few of mine but yours was missing half the teeth!! Good luck next time around!

Currently Chris runs oval on wednesday nights, so the "switch" will be from oval to offroad. I will be there.

Ryan,

Still hope to get the buggy. Can't seem to sell this D8T. Never thought an electric 1/8th would be soo hard to sell. I was aking $450 for the D8T w/electric conversion and Novak HV 6.5 system. Now I'll take $375 just to move it so I can get your buggy.

Pat & Wyd,

Pat, heard you were very fast but had some trouble with traffic in the main. Glad you are getting faster with the BLITZ. Wyd, the BLITZ is coming for you.

If I drive like I did on Sunday when you come up in the 31st I'm going to be in big trouble. I drove bad and had two heats of DNF's so was not my best day thats for sure.

True I post alot but I keep good tabs on the Losi. The aluminum slipper plates where going bad and then grooved my slipper pads so after a few laps the slipper would progressively slip more and more thru the heat race so I would pull off as to not get in the other racers way. Besides with it slipping it was had to make the jumps.
