Show introduction and welcome.

Tim Notes:

Chip shortage is still an issue for all you Maclan fans. Some info on the chip shortage as its called. How did we get here? Rona scare for auto makers, Rona plaint shut downs, Silica for glass vaccine vials.

Tim got a new Truck! Let me tell you about it. Leather, moonroof, power steps, no crashing programs and on and on.

Did a little interview with the Five Star chassis guys and my buddy Todd Solterio and they/Todd had a surprise for me.

Tulsa is coming, what am I doing this time? The biggest RC drag race ever held and its going to be epic. 500 plus entries

Tulsa race prep,

What do you do when you travel for a race?

What cars are you taking because you are signed up for two cars?

Flying with Lipos, 100 watt hours is the key

RMA fun! You all do know we can figure out how you killed your esc right?

Dale Epp retires after 30 years of making the best RC bodies ever seen.

Jared Tebo is building a no prep car. This kind of started a while back when I came to Maclan glad to see he has time to try it out now.
