Cool great day the AZ state fair!

Hi guys new to the forum but I have always hada love for rcs. Anyways, about the fair! And had a great time with my wife and two friends! We rode ride and pplayed some games. Even ate some deep fried food which im paying for lol.

But what I didnt expect was they had rc car races! It was 5$ a race for 4mins. We raced traxxas slash 4x4s brushless I asked the guy where the redcats were and he goes yeah right! so I said whatever and raced my buddy and three other guys. And what was awesome I won! Ive never driven on a track before but it was so cool they had a few good turns and some good jumps!!! For winning I got a free 10$ indoor go cart race cardz idk that I will go maybe just use it as a trophy
Anyone else have a story like this!? I told my wife that I HAD to tell u guys and she laughed at me
Hope everyone had a good a day as I had... Even though they didnt have redcats!

This is funny. You'll get the same response when you ask the same question in your local hobby shop.

thats good news. I have trouble steering people towards Redcat products when they ask where they get the parts for it. I know you can find everything on the internet, but its nice to be able to go right in to your local hobby shop when you break a part on a saturday afternoon, and be able to repair it the same day. Also, a lot of newbies need assistance from someone behind the counter to explain what they need.

Well when I was really into my xmods I had to order parts like gpm and such so wsiting for ordered parts is no big deal to me. I do ser what ur saying though.
Ive learned alot just off this forum though! I love this forum!

I always make sure when we get a new model in I carry most common parts for it that way if and when needed I have them. I have had to steer a customer or 2 to the internet for parts but it is not something i like to do.

I just snapped my hinge pin for the upper a-arm. I went to my lhs to see if they had something that would work to replace it. They didntdidnt so what I did was take a pen and pull the ink tube out and blow out the ink and put a piece of metal from a clothes pins in the hole where the ink was. It actually works well, I bent the end of the metal off to make it stay in. im goimg going to het the the real pins but I dont have any money right now.

Btw sorry for all the typos I dont have a computer so I do all this from my phone!
