All kidding aside, never tried it and never had an all wheel drive so i was wondering why it wouldn't work on the rear wheel with plastic tires

A BUNCH OF US WERE DRIFTING LAST NIGHT AND WE WERE HAVING SO MUCH FUN! Pucho was pretty good at it, and once I remembered (thanks to Johnathan) how to set the radio for drifting, I got better at it too. If anyone wants an AWD to drift, let me know and I'll make sure I have enough for everyone. It is so much fun!!! I hadn't done it for a long time, and I forgot what a different kind of skill it is. Drifting a 2WD - pretty much impossible. (I'll check the videos posted at home later.)

Kyosho, PN, and R1 Works have their prizes on the way for the big Halloween race! It's gonna be AWESOME!!!

Hi everyone! Just a quick reminder that Action RC Mini Speedway will be open for a special Friday "Mischief" Night of racing, and will be closed on Saturday for the rare Saturday observance of my favorite holiday - Halloween!

Friday night is going to be AWESOME!!! Cool prizes have been donated by popular ARCMS suppliers, including:

Kyosho America
PN Racing / RC Kenon
R1 Wurks Batteries

We will have many special types of races, including:
- Drift Racing!
- Combo lap races! (Addition of best and 2nd lowest lap times!)
- Combo time races! (Addition of laps and times over two races!)
- Duplicate lap bonus races! (Can you get two exactly the same laps???)

Combo races usually provide two winners per race (overall winner and lap event winner), so don't miss this special event!

This is sure to be a really fun night! Trick-or-Treat bags will be given to all drivers, and registration for this special night is only $15. We will be open at 7pm, and will start racing at 8pm. We'll close whenever! We will be open tonight for normal Thursday Night Gift Card Racing.

BONUS: Come and see me in my Halloween Costume! (Don't be afraid to wear yours, too!)

UPDATE: The NEW MR03 is in stock at ARCMS! There are only a few left, and more will not be available until the end of November! Get yours now!!!

See you all tonight AND tomorrow! HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!

More comments on the main thread, but just to wrap up...

Hi everyone! Well, I would have to say that Friday night's Halloween Mischief race was a huge success. We had a great turnout (better than expected, honestly), and I think everyone had a great time. It was nice to see so many of the little guys out having fun. My son Justin, who does not get to race as much as he would like to, had a great time and talked about it all weekend. It is so great to see such a large C-Main group. These are the guys that so many of us will have to watch out for if they keep it up!

It was also a lot of fun to shake up the racing styles with some special racing events. In the "fast lap/2nd slowest lap" races, it was interesting to see cars that actually finished higher in position get beat by consistant cars who ran smoother laps. In the "addition of two races" event, you absolutely needed two solid runs to be successful. (In retrospect, I would like to do "best two out of three runs added" next time so that everyone has one chance to eliminate a Mulligan bad run!)

It was great to see some old faces, great to see so many new faces, and I hope you all had a great time. See you all tomorrow!
