Ahh, Art, I was hoping you were going to try and make it up for the next installment of the Carolina Cup series. :( We are having it on the 28th.....Just FYI, its going to be at CFI and not the Plex, so we will have AC, and an elevated track with a layout similar to the last enduro.

I dont think I can fund a trip this month I will double check with my better half and check hotel rates. I would love too though. The 03 is really rocking now.

I had to drop the low lap time limit down on HFAY last month to 3.5 as I was busting 3.8s on that layout and my good practice runs were over 100 laps. I only had 2 racers last month here:( 5 backed out Gotta love shakin the tires off the car with an old pn 70t.

PS you get the package in the mail:)

Glad to hear the 03 is rockin'! Hopefully Ill get to see it in action some time soon :D Hotel rates will probably be pretty bad on the beach, but if you look somewhere out by Broadway, or even out further, you can find some decent pricing. Expedia coud probably find you a deal, but Ill understand totally if you don't make it. Funds are tight on all of us these days....

Glad to have you join us. I was thinking about the beach race and $$ is just not there this month. Having kids means travel races=mini vacations 3-4 days at a resort.

I run relex 2wd v2 in the Rear with pn 15s worn down in the front on my 03.
The other good tires are kyosho 20 in back and pn6s.
The grip is good and the track is always vaccumed for raceday.

Role call. Hank you actually gonna make it to a local race? The last 2 times I have seen you has been in myrtle beach.

Russ + jaren ?

Patrick you ready to knock the heavy dust off?

New racers let have some laid back fun on the RCP.

The track has been down for a few weeks.
I ran a few packs over the weekend and need to run a few more the next couple days to finish burning up some tires so I can reuse the rims for some fresh rubber for this race.

My mr03 went though surgury this last weekend. My motor wire snapped and the stock battery wire broke also. Since it was apart I upgrades the wire on the board and swapped out the servo gear for metal snce I have went though 4 in 9 months. A motor swap to a new motor and I am ready for raceday.

If you want to get rid of the Kt-18 let me know the $$. I would like to have a loaner radio to use on my old race ready 2.4 Mr02. It will save me from having to rework my kids Am MR02/eco motor car when people need a loaner car.

Yes
I have the loaner race ready mr02 lexas 430gt 2.4 It is a fully upgraded Mr02 and was my race car until feb this year. WTF with PN AL diff/reflex/qtec etc.

I have 4 pit tables setup permanently in my shop. I can get more. This is why I ask for roll call for race day. I just want to ensure I have enough of the tables setup/cleared off of tools/rc cars before raceday. I have 4 rooms of my basement 2 for the track and 2 for pit space.
