It was a great example of having people of all skill levels. There may be more highly experienced and skill drivers coming to the series and it will be a great opportunity to be positive mentors for younger or less experienced drivers.
We stated Mike!

Will be great to add some new racers. Everyone is going to have to be flexible.

heyooo....just looking for some advice! Been recently getting the itch to get back into the hobby. However, my 1/8 hobbyking buggy is broken and it is an off brand so it is hard to find parts. Was thinking about maybe picking up something used but don't know what! What is a popular class for someone that has never really raced and hasn't been in the hobby for a while!? Kinda leaning more towards some type of buggy class. Thanks!

Not sure if the VTA turn out is consistent. MD or honda1 could probably comment on that. However, I have a fully RTR VTA car for sale. It is an Associated TC3 with a Novak GTB ESC and Novak Ballistic Boss 25.5 motor with Airtronics MX-Sport radio. Also includes 2 SMC 5000 LiPos, some spare parts, spare tires, spare body and maybe a few more things I forgot. You will need to replace the tires and possibly get a bigger 64 pitch pinion to be competitive, but all you would need is a LiPo charger to get it on the track. You can PM me for more info if interested.

I hope to race this summer and will be running a very similar car so I can help with setup if needed. I'm planning on attending the Test & Tune day weather and life permitting on the 11th. I will have the car and other excess RC inventory with me for sale. Also have a couple of boats, a plane, some motors, stators and other stuff for sale. If other people bring their excess stuff for sale, maybe we can turn it into a mini swap meet?
