And, we are back

Finally, after over a month away from all things RC, I got back on the track this past weekend. I planned on running F1, WGT and 1/12, but no WGT and the only 1/12 action was mod. No way I am running mod this new into 1/12. Don't want my CRC to turn to bits just yet. So we ran F1, good turn out of 6. Robert won (of course) in his silvercan/stock F103, while the rest of mere mortals followed him. Actually, Mitch (with Roberts Ultra) and Doug (Ultra) put a lot of heat on him, but in the end, it was the same story. I dont know where I finished, I think 4th, good runs with Scott and Tom as usual. We are pretty evenly matched in the driving department, so its good racing for the mid packers. Something new we tried was the pit stops during a regular 6 minute main. It added something to the racing just as we expected, even with a short race. Adds some strategy and some excitement. Win/win.

During my hiatus I sold my F1R to someone up at Mikes so he will be joining us on the carpet maybe this week. But I got a wild hair Friday night, and I ordered another F1R along with Robert so I will be back to having a 2 car garage this week. I also bought an old XRay T2-2007 to get back into VTA, I bought another Sakura Zero S and an HPI Blitz SC, both for my soon to be 4 year old son as Christmas presents. Plus I will play with them too, I am not fooling anyone, I realize that, so don't call me out on it.

I'm sorry

I'm sorry I haven't been posting much. I work for UPS, and we are very busy this time of year. Very busy. almost 120 hours in the last 2 weeks. I have had very little free time at all. I haven't been to the track since mid November, I haven't even worked on any of my cars, although I painted up a new WGT and Racer Robert painted me up a 1/12 body. I have bought my son a Sakura Zero S and an HPI Blitz SC for Christmas, he loves to hang out with Daddy in the garage so now he will have 2 cars to get him started in RC. And I admit, with the Sakura, I might borrow it to throw down some VTA laps here and there. So for another 2 weeks, I am pretty much out of RC action. I will post up anything I might hear, but I haven't even been on RCTech in 2 weeks. Looking forward to hitting the track again. F1, WGT, 1/12 and maybe even VTA. But not til January. Happy Christmas to all that celebrate it, and happy everything else to those that don't.
