Hi everyone,
Things are really starting to heat up at R/C Madness rignt before the Micro On Road Nats. We had 50 people at our club race on Friday 11-2 and the RedBull Girls were down passing around some energy!

There are a BUNCH entries already in the two stock classes for the On Road Nats so if you are thinking of racing in either of them enter NOW! There is a limit to 40 per class in stock.

We just got some really cool prizes from Tamiaya and HPI prizes should be here SOON.

Also, don't forget the 1/18 Indoor Off Road Nats on March 28-30! We will have TWO full page ads in RC Driver and Xtreme RC Cars so you know attendance will be HUGE!!!

As always, email me with any questions....
