I think this was the most fun I've had in a long time today.

Scott, that matrix was running GREAT today! It was screaming!

I went to bed -- so W. Va won it sound like? I watched the first 10 mintues or so of the game and what a power house!


Maddawg - Woodbridge -- isn't that near DC? Some of the guys here with trucks like to do some yard bashing -- but most of us really like to race our 8th scale buggies. And it looks like all the guys with trucks want to start racing trucks too. Do you race?

Damn, I think the police is after me now.... they are going to charge me with attempted murder....... on my CC.




I saw the box of spares staring at me yesterday and I can't take it anymore..... I am building it. Ordered some King Headz towers and braces + receiver and other small parts. I just need some turnbuckles for the suspension. Anyone know any cheap good ones? I don't feel like spending $45 for a set of Ti turnbuckles.

I HAVE HAIR??!! [X(]

LETS GOOOOOOOOO MOUNTAINEERS!!!!!!!! Georgia never saw that train coming!! I thought their defense was supposed to be fast......looked like they were in slow motion when Slaton blew past them. The beauty is, we did it with Freshmen, against the SEC Champ, in their backyard. Wait till next year!!

Christian -- what engine are you planning to put in the new buggy? Is this the buggy you bought from Stampy's when he had them there for that great price?

Yup, that's the kit I got from Stampy. I've got 2 new SP1 chassis so I figured I'd just put it together since I have extra shocks and stuff. Just needed to get better shock towers and braces + a few minor things to make it to full SP1 spec.

Ed - yeah I got two cars. The MP7.5 Kanai III (which needs a rebuild too) and the SP1 I'm running now.

I've got a brand new MAC .21 in the drawer, might aswell put that one in. Or maybe ..... a modded and pinched OS.

I knew it was going to get close. GA is too good to go down like that. I believe they thought we were going to come in and lay down for them. By the time they figured out we were actually there to win, we had a big lead to work with. Got to love the fake punt at the end. Our RB is a true freshman also. We are returning 9 starters on offense next year. Should be fun.......[8D]

the track looks good for this weekend. seems like it helped a lot by rolling it last weekend
before it rained. it looks just like it did last sunday.
some of us have talked about putting a buggy together for steven. so far mike has been
very generous, he has supplied buggy and radio. still need motor, pipe, clutch, flywheel
and clutchbell. if anybody has anything they would like to donate let me know.

im still a scrooge , just trying to help a kid out!

I have a clutch bell and flywheel. I may have a set of clutch springs - not sure about the shoes. What buggy is Mike talking about? His Ofna LX comp?
