Looking forward to seeing all my partners in crime again....

I too have been spending money like it was water on LiPo's and more brushless stuff. I rationalized these purchases by convincing myself that they were necessities, leaving me extra time to devote to track committee duties!!!

Whatever this year holds for us all I'm sure we'll all have another great season.

So now I'm into the process of doing all the maintenance and set-up in advance of opening day!!!

I only hope 5 weeks will be enough time, LOL!

I watched some videos of last years action and I wonder has the track layout changed much? Ive watched a couple videos of other tracks and some seem to have a lot of ups and downs, off camber turns etc and I didnt really notice anything like that in the Sids videos, track seemed fairly 'flat' for the most part..

Just my eyes playin tricks on me?

im gonna get SMOKED by you guys

2008 will bring a complete ground up rebuild of the track layout, contours, off camber turns, elevation changes etc... Another area the committee will be concentrating on will be track surface. Our goal is to have a great layout without the ruts that plagued us last season.

Get your electric off road vehicles ready and be prepared to have a smile on your face from ear to ear!

I just got my Kyosho RB5 and Losi XXX-T this christmas, so I have never runs at Sid's. I have been to fastcats and I love running the electric. This year will be my first experiance at Sid's Raceway. From the sounds of it, it is a blast. As soon as the track opens and it warms up, I'll see you all there!!!

I get to try out the BJ4 that I purchased (pre-owned).

It is going to feel great to get back outside for some dirt racing.

I'll be running a B4FT with a sphere comp 2007 and a Novak 7.5L Velocity Light and MaxAmps 3000 or 6000 Lipos

As well as my trusty T4FT with mamba 4700 and Maxamps 3000 or 6000 Lipos

And if we ever get the Vintage going (last year was pretty weak) I've got all kinds of tricks for RC10s, gold,graphite,tekin mids, etc etc.

I've spent too much money on this stuff to get a 4wd so I'm pretty sure I'll be sitting out for that class...unless someone lets me try the B44 out and I fall in LOVE :GRIN:

Can't wait to start practicing!!!
