I'm planning on being there. I'm anxious to try out some new parts. Of course, I planned on being there last time, too. I've made a request to the "planning committee" to let me know about things that affect my schedule as soon as possible. Don't know if it'll do any good.

Shaun - 11:00 is good. If anyone else wants to show up then, that's fine too.

Billy - "Planning committee", that's a good way to look at it. :rolleyes:

James is planning on racing with us too. I'll find out if Jay will be joining us as well.

Call in sick dude! What do you think sick days are for anyway! Well, hopefully you can make it sometime, we're having a lot of fun!

I forgot that Marvin is out of town this weekend and won't be joining us.

Man this sucks! It's not looking so good for Sunday. Unless things change I'll be working on Sunday. :(

We'll see.....

BTW Chad - Has TFB been able to run any races on Saturdays? Things look pretty slow on the TFB site. Just wondering.

hey guys. its hard to find parts out here. they dont have much in inventory and most of the places only carry kyosho parts only. so no vds or atomic tires for me. i'll still on the hunt for your clear chassis, patrick. some of this stuff is the same price or a little cheaper but when everything costs around 5-6 bucks you dont really save much in the first place. i still have a little more then a week here and they get things in on mondays so ill be checking next week.

oh yeah, i've seen f1 miniz's everywhere. they costs about 140 and they're the 2003 jordan's (yellow ones). if anyone can find out if they're changing the chassis any in the ones they'll release later in the year. if they dont make any changes besides the body then i'm gonna grab on here. lmk if you guys want one. if anything i'll buy them and just sell them. i've seen at least 1 in each store i go to.

patrick- see if you can set up a weekday race. i'll be back the 30th in the evening so anything after that is good. thanks.

Hey guys, I had a blast today!! It was great seeing the car start to hook up right and get in the groove. The best part is, every time I have come to the track I have met new people and great friends!!!

Can't wait until the next one!!

Glad you could make Russ and glad you had fun!! Hopefully we'll get the whole crew there next time (and add some more!). Don't go home a practice too much. That little 01 scoots along pretty well and it appears your driving skill is rapidly improving (apparently getting back to what it used to be).

Hope to see you soon!

HEy sorry I couldn't come again. I'll try next time.

andy

Russ: did you say you use to work at funtime hobbies

Russ
2006.05.22, 08:41 PM
Yeah, I used to work there for about 1 or 2 months. I will probably remember everyone's face that I met while there, but as for remembering names, I'm a dummy.

I still don't know exactly why Rog closed the shop down. He seemed to have alot of customer traffic, but then again, the hobby business can be pretty rocky sometimes.

hey look at these new bodies. There like the vds' http://pnracing.com/

Russ: Cool, since when? I use to go there before it closed and that was where I started mini-z racing. it was a long time ago like a couple of years.

Russ

I guess it would be close to 3 years ago now, maybe 4. I don't remember exactly when I was there, but I think it was early in the year, for maybe 2 or 3 months. The time I was there, was as he was building and when Rog finished the 2nd story ozite track.

oh cool. Did you know Jonathon?

TruReaper(Chad)
2006.05.24, 09:39 PM
Dang how come nobody remembers me from Funtime hobbies. i worked there also for over a year ...I was the guy in the back always fixing everyones rc cars and truck. Also the one you was winning the mod mini-z class up stairs and after russ left i was winning the stock class down stairs.....

Russ
2006.05.24, 10:16 PM
