Sorry I haven't been online nor at the races. Full time managin' in El Daltano takes up a lot of my time. I've also moved to an apartment in East Ridge; with no internet or cable (yet). So today is the first day I had time to come to the folks' house and hop on the intronet. The best thing about this apartment complex is I'm the youngest person to ever sign a lease there. :D Nothin but friggin old folks every where! They all go to bed at 8 and make no noise at all! Best part is my apartment doesn't have that old people smell; they left the doors and windows open for a few days before I moved in to get that smell out. And guess what else?!? I have a tennis court. :D


I'll be at the races this Thursday 5-13 :D :D :D :D . I don't have any new toys though. :( Just the same old CLK AMG DTM with Hei Pao Positrak. ;)


Wait a minute!!! I DO have some new toys!! Week before last, I got rear-ended by a Freight Liner on the freeway. I gots me a brand new rear bumper and a freshly repainted trunk lid. I'm especially happy they repainted the entire trunk lid because there were some spots in the paint I couldn't get out for nothin.


Anyway, if anyone has a gigantic microwave you'd like to donate, or any frozen foods, bring it Thursday so I'll stop living on Taco Bell. Mmmmmm 1/2lb burritos mmmmm.

We were wondering what happened to ya! Looking foward to having you back. We may have to come up and check out your tennis courts. Is it lighted? Not much has changed at the track I have a few new bodys, (like thats anything new) Allan has a couple "new to him" ready sets and Lamar and David have a few new bodies as well.

C-YA on Thursday!!

Hey guys, I actually have this Thursday off! How early could I get to the rec center and be able to practice? It's been a while.
What track configurations have you all been running?

Look forward to seeing you guys.

Later

we usually change the track each week. There is no telling what it will be this week. I think Lamar has Thursday off so he may get there a little early. Im sure he will post. Its good hearing from you Shaun. Looking foward to racing with ya

Yeah it's been a long time. I've moved into a new place. On 7 acres, very quiet, I love it. I'll probably be building an off-road track for my RC18T later on.

Can I get into the room at the rec center at 1PM? I really want to get as much time on the track as possible. :)

Where is the new room you guys moved into? Is it bigger?

The new room is a little bigger...and located on the other end of the hall. We keep it locked up and only a hand full of us have the keys....Im not sure if the guy at the center has a key or not. Im sure Lamar will get there early. He has a new job now and is working the night shift but Thursday is one of his days off. Im sure we can come up with something by Thursday.

I reckon we stay until we get kicked out; usually 7-9??? I am scheduled to leave work at 5:30, but I've been staying late every night and haven't taken any breaks, so I'm going to try to scoot out early.



OH! How cool is the KB in Dalton? We got a new release of 1:64 Dub City cars; limited release. Walmart, Toys R Us, K-mart, and all the other KB stores don't have 'em. :D I can't remember the entire set, but the two I bought are '05 Ford GT white pearl with blue stripes and a raked stance, and an '03 AC S3 (super duper M3) that's silver. The M3 also comes in white; ghey, and the GT comes in yellow w/black stripes. I think there's a mid-90's Cadylak and an early-90's Stinkin Linkin Towncar. Pretty sweet cars. :cool:

Won't git to race this Thursday. :(



BUTT! In our mail pack today, we got a bunch of company info about putting on R/C races with our cars and encouraging kids to bring their own to race, too. Of course, I couldn't demo mine (officially) on the clock, so I'd show my steezuff on an off day; like Friday. What do you guys think of demo races at Walnut Square Mall Friday? I'll go to the mall office Monday and try to set something up. Hopefully that super duper OMFG fine Natalie will be there. :o

im up for it Eric, do we need to come up with some sort of demo track?

i was thinking i could take my Fatigue mats that i have here at home and build some sort of track

I'm off Friday, so it would be during store hours. I'm going to the mall office tomorrow to see if they'll let us do it out in the mall; in which case we would need a track. Otherwise, I can clear part of the store-front that's carpeted and outline a track on that.

I'm still not sure what time; I gotta smack around the mall management.


The carpet in the store is very thin and tough. It doesn't have as much bite as the rough side of the RCP track, but it is definitly more grippy than the slick side. I will also go down to Radio Shack and talk some $hit about their XMods. :D :D :D

Looks like some people are expanding their RC collections. :)

Couldn't make it last week, we had someone quit and I had to work on Thursday to cover. This Thursday looks good so far. I'll keep my fingers crossed.

I'll bring both of my little toys to play with. Where do you guys plan on running those Revos?

I'ma be racin this week, too. I gots me some new brushes, com oil, and cleaner for the big truck. No more sparky sparkies for me. :D I also figured out why the Evader's motor can flash fry a cow; the capacitor on the motor had broke off on one side. A lil solder later, it runs cool and supah fast. :D
