The next MABA race is going to be one to attend, we have the Fl guys and gals running at least once a month getting practice, and there are the guys from Tx. that are willing and ready to race and you have the gang from La. thats ready or getting ready. Should be a good race, with the updated race equipment and all of the drivers that are hunger for the first place trophy.

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9XnG2JtFihc[/youtube]i was running my sisters boat at a meet in gainesville fl and i found a block out in the pond. the water was only five or six inches. it did not hurt the boat much.

?

The water is only 6" deep? Through the whole pond? That would make retrieval real easy. LOL

ya, but it dries up real fast if we dont get any rain. if it would keep water in it all the time, it would be a perfect spot for a race.

We are going to set a oval track for the next meet in Ocala . If you would like to race in the nitro or Gas class Please let me know so I can set it up. These races are for practice and to test out the lap timer- counter.

Hey, do you have a link or name for that rubber trim on your boats? I'm still looking for some. Thanks!

Tim you are welcome maybe the trim on your boat is a place to start and go from there hope to see you next month in Ocala.

getting the boats wet is part of the plan.....but if that is the only bad thing, then I'd say y'all had a good week end
