Cool... Nice to get a perspective of the tank on there... What's the lane width these days? I know for 5th scale under Roar rules they are supposed to be 15' wide...

Come on out.. Nice relaxed day... We intimidate the little cars off the track...

Brian, swapping over the front hubs and the rear brakes during the week... Don't want a repeat of what happened...

I don't know if you thought about it... But there's a kill switch that goes into the 3rd or 4th channel and you can assign a button to kill the motor, I think it will also kill the motor if you lose radio signal...

The majority of FBF is 50 year old plus runways that haven't been kept up in years...

Hey 2pock and kg2mb, we're starting to get a nice showing of 5th scales down at Ronkonkoma. I see you can't make it this Sun, but you really should try to come down. I know it's a hike, but it will definitely be worth it. Huge, flat, smooth and challenging track. The new layout is awesome. VERY high speed sweeper going into a huge straight. You'll hit top speed in the first 1/4 of the back straight and it's all adrenaline from there! Hope you guys can make it down soon.

How would everyone feel about a road trip to Maryland and running at 301 raceway??? I've been chatting with a few guys down there and they'd like to get 5th scale back up.... Maybe we could get a once a month point series going next year...
