    Well our local track is doing sign up and there may be a race (weather permitting) tomorrow...

    We have two trucks ready and one buggy...

    My son and the Losi Strong Hold Buggy that he wants to race...

    [​IMG]

    My Daughters Team Associated SC10 that she can not decide if she wants to race or not...

    [​IMG]

    Our old Team Associated SC10, with a new body... Spare truck...

    [​IMG]

    I am going to be the mechanic/pit crew/sponsor... I would race too but our budget is thin until I get some work happening... With transponders at $100+ ea plus tax, then the club fees ect. You understand where I am coming from... LoL...

    So my boy did well (proud Papa) with the stock Losi XXX SCB, 12T brushed motor and 2s LiPo...

    He placed 4th over all in a mixed class (there were only 5 in the mixed lol) And he placed first in Novice (he was the only novice there today...LoL), everyone else were running Brushless and LiPo...

    The most impressive part is he was improving every time he hit the track...

    Qualifying average 82.854,
    Heat 1 average 79.108,
    Heat 2 average 79.342,
    Main average 75.038.

    He shaved 7.861 seconds off per lap from the qualifying to the Main... Not bad for his first race... His best lap was 64.437 seconds...

    I know they are not blistering speed, or anywhere near setting records, but I'm happy with the results and he's begging to go back...

    Doing some testing...

    [​IMG]

    He already wants me to install a Brushless and run 3s for next weekend!!! "YIKES"

    You should come and hang out, I had a lot of fun even though I didn't race... Bring out some planes or heli's there is an air field just before the SC track...

    Thanks... I'm quite proud... We are leaving the car stock until he starts averaging 65 ish seconds then I will start tuning it for the track... He started doubling up the jumps on his own (I never told him to, nor did I think that buggy could jump that far...lol...) and running clean laps... No racing next weekend but there will be the weekend after...

    So we went up to the track today to see what was going on. Swept off some water, did about 10 minutes of practice. Big black clouds kept on creping in, soft rain, stopped raining, started raining again. The turn out was low very few people showed up so the race was cancelled. Okay no big deal, packed everything up headed home (About a ten minute drive) and haven't seen another rain drop so far today... Lol... Figures... Now the sun is shinning, well back to work on our Scaler Course in the front yard I guess...

    So my Son did some racing today... Broke a ball end on the shock during practice, managed to fix that easy enough... Had a spare in the tool box... But after the second heat he broke a rear hub and that we don't have a spare, but we did have my daughters truck for a back up and we were able to run it for the Main...

    Qualifying Average lap 76.724

    Heat 1; 65.006 Average, First Place Novice

    Heat 2; 64.962 Average, First Place Novice

    Main; 83.524 Average, First Place Novice. Close to the same average as the first time he run the buggy.

    Keep in mind he had to use the back up truck that he had never run before, for the Main...

    Fastest Lap 57.731 Seconds



    The back up truck...

    [​IMG]

    My daughter wants to race the back up truck next weekend (well her truck actually)... Man I am so excited...


    The buggy...

    [​IMG]

    In case anyone is wondering both these rigs are running 2s LiPo and 12T Brushed 2wd...

    Come on out and race or watch or do some trail runs down along the Coquitlam River... It's like right there by the track... If you get hungry or thirsty there is a concession at the track...
