Sorry to hack the thread again, but the surgery went well. I could probably race but marsheling is definately out of the question...lol. With that said, putting on my shoes is out of the question also. Soon, I promise I will be back in the action in the short bus class once again. Ya'all better bring your A game for the A main gentlemen...I will be back.

Miss you guys and hope to see you soon.

lol...you know my preference. I would get a losi, but I think Adrien will need another partner for the associated to keep the losi, associated rivalry going. What ever you decide to get Robert will be fast nomatter what it is. Hope to see you soon.

I would get the tires for the lose and worry about the chassis and rear end for the sc10 later. Either way you go will be good but I think cost effective. Tires are cheeper ya know. Just a thought.

Bryan glad to hear you are doing well. Can't wait till you get back out with us!

Hey Ivan no hacking with your mini savage eh Laughing

Ron we generally start at noon and run three heats and a main. And yes you are more than welcome to bring your B44.1. I know Robert has a couple B44s.

If Corey thinks I won't over do it, maybe this sunday. I still need a charger to take care of my 40c's and tires for Audreys t4. We will see. Can't wait to run with every one again. How is the Krag track comming along? Is a schedule up yet?

I think mini savage will have to be junk again as he took out one of the b44s BL system because the stock system on it finally gave out after so much abuse hahaha

Just Kidding but I did tell you: Ivan, listen to the reviews and wait for the upgraded version after they fix all the bugs.

Dave is also joining the 4x4 10th buggy racing on sunday apparently. I guess I rather race than go out to the comp crawling on Sunday.

RACEPARTY!! HACKERS!!

Glad to hear you are recovering well!! If Corey thinks you'll be okay you can use my charger and I have some tires for Audrey also.

Krag track is coming along very nice. Started tamping it last weekend, (Erica's is still sore). The water is hooked up with tons of pressure and the restroom in the shop is ready.

Hopefully this weekend we'll be able to finish tamping and start laying down some nice track surface. I'll probably take a whole week off in the near future to speed up the process and start shopping around for a drivers stand. I'm getting very anxious now.

Bobby. I have a suggestion for the driver's stand; you may already know about it. That place called McKinney Wrecking over by UTEP had those industrial sized shelves; exaclty like the ones in the garden dept at Lowes. These shelves are locking shelves so it makes them super safe. I had a huge one priced at $600.00. It was going to be 50ft in length and 12 feet in the air. The price was for almost everything I needed. All I needed to purchase was the retaining bars on top and build stairway. Might wanna check that out if you haven't already done so...

I know exactly what you are talking about...it's pallet racking....I have one in my backyard that we use for our drivers stand. Laughing 20ft long 10ft high.

I've been to McKinney wrecking and it must be hit and miss cuz when I was there all they had was crap. I'll try them again though.

Thanks Gino, I always appreciate any help I can get.

If a stand like the rc&me one sounds good I can try to get a hold of one of those things but would have to come from Mexico because those are used on the transportation of aluminum.

or at least some information on how to get one and how much it would cost.

If I could I would donate it but let me ask around with the truck drivers etc. see if one of them might "disappear" hahahaha

Robert,
I orginally planned on getting a shipping container like RC&Me, but the price of steel went through the roof and as a result the price of containers more than doubled. So the next best thing is pallet racks.

Let me know what you find out, I really appreciate your help.

Bobby, When my wife and I went to McKinney the racks were inside, not the junk they had laying around outside. But perhaps you are correct and they have sold everything. If I'm around that area I'll stop in and search for myself.

Talking about the drivers stand. Have you guys looked at the Second hand store? Its on Cotton close to downtown. Ive been there before looking for shelving for my business and they've got a pretty good selection.

Oh yes I know but you know that mexicans always do the famous tranzas.
I was thinking that maybe we could ask for something closer to free than what they cost.

But I am waiting on the reply see how it has to be done and all because sending an empty container and cross the border is the hard part. but I have some cousins on the importing and exporting so everything is in the thinking process I am always happy to be able to help.

Thanks to you Bobby for all the fun and great times on RACEPARTY where the party is what matters.

Hello everybody,

Just introducing myself to the group. I talked to Bobby, Bob, and Erica out at the new track on Kragg last Sunday afternoon. They invited me to come out and practice/race with you guys. I a new guy in this rc racing world and I just bought my first Slash 2wd about a month ago. I've been mostly running it around at the local park near my house (I live in the subdivision near the old RC&Me track off 375, that now seems defunct). My Slash is mostly stock other than an upgrade to a Castle SCT brushless motor and controller, and I finally got some new tires and Losi springs for better traction and control, last week.

Look forward to trying my hand at something new with racing on a track. I'm working this weekend and next week but hopefully I will make it out next weekend when I am off work.

Jack
