Tim Notes:

 We Got a TRACK

 Sabine RC Street racers, we don’t want no Track racers around here…. lol

 Some people can only post the shit and dirt of the world… Why?

 The internet…. These people that ask what motor is the fastest or what gear will give me the most top end…. What??

Admins and FB pages…. Its not a job it’s you enforcing your own ruled world….

 Kid advice about life and shitty people and bad experiences, the first time is shocking but dads here to tell you get used to it……

 Kpop, Who needs the SuperBowl?

 Super Nationals for 272.00 Let’s call it the fantasy trip…….

 4.35V per cell…. Wtf…..

 RCDRL tech day…. Huh??


 News items

 Reedy race winners, How did Ryan do??    The 2018 Reedy Race of Champions did not disappoint. Received a bag of swag when the event began with control tires, glue, decals and even an event specific car stand for the event. The racing was very tough in the invite class, the track layout was one to remember featuring three triple jumps. I fought until the end for the overall but came up short and finished tied for 3rd and received 4th after tie-breaker. Congrats to Dustin Evans on a great weekend earning the victory and Ty Tessman and Ryan Cavalieri 2nd and 3rd place respectively.
Next event up, 2018 Dirt Nitro Challenge at the Fear Farm....can’t wait to burn some nitro.


LRP gone:  As reported by Red RC, LRP founder Jürgen Lautenbach announced the famed German brand will close on March 31, 2018. LRP filed for insolvency with the German court in May of last year but has failed to find an appropriate investor, and so the company will cease distributing Team Associated and Reedy products. Lautenbach’s statement concluded with his wish for a fresh start for LRP but did not suggest a timeframe.
