The track is set up and ready to go. I'm going to try and get some practice in with Jaren before Saturday.

I looked at the HFAY results.
Right now overall I am 21st russ and billy are 28/29.
We run a national series and you both still run right next to each other. lol

I broke in a new motor for the next race last night. Hopefully we can get some good results and move up this last races.

hey guys, so when is the next race? I'm kinda interested to try one of those mr-03s

Great to see that you haven't completely vanished. You will like the 03.

Hank, looks like we are going to do the next one on Saturday the 21st at my house. We generally start up around 9:00 a.m. and finish by about 12:30.

Art also has a nice new house but has to move one support pole in the basement out of the way first before he can accomodate large tracks. I would guess that will take him a few months to accomplish since he was still looking for a structural engineer to certify a plan of action.

hey Russ! Hmm, maybe I could at least come out and watch. It sounds kind of fun thinking about racing again, but i'll need some practice time.

On another note, I saw kevin who use to race with us at the hobby shop around norcross near the forum. Unfortunately, I didn't get to talk ti him as he was turning. I just recognized his car then saw him driving.

We have extra cars. Not the fastest but you would probably beat me anyways with Jaren's MR02 and stock radio. :)

Do you have an AM radio?
If not I have a losi micro-t radio You can use.
I have your old Mro2 i saved for my kids to run. I can freshen it up for you wth a good body(lexus 430) and put good tires on it. I have plenty of good batteries if you need them too.

Just let me know what you need and I will hook you up.

As Russ said I sold my house and moved to a much larger house ~ 5 minutes west of my old house. I am south of 20 just off windemere parkway at chatahoochie river. nice tennis subdivision ( 3 indoor courts) 13 total W a couple clay also.

My basement as is is 6 inches too small to get a 10x10 layout in. Once I get a wall removed I will be able to get a 9x18 layout in.

Hold off on the mro3 a month or so if you can. There may be a board issue and the next shipment batch will be out next week. A std motor wire can easily fry a board on the orignal board for the mr03s

hey Art! that sounds cool, maybe I could watch and maybe practice that day for the race. Congrats on the new place and you guys having indoor tennis courts is pretty awesome. I only know of private tennis clubs having. I just played tonight and you could see the heat coming off my head!

yea I even thought that issue was a problem with the other asf boards and the cap between the motor. I always use to snip the wire eyes or just soldered them straight on
