Sid's Raceway Dirt Storm '08


Race Update:

CANCELED DUE TO RAIN

Another day of rain has postponed the race until next weekend. I unfortunately will be at my sister in laws wedding (the reason why I could not attend the ROAR Nationals). I am really itching to drive my car....All this rain is killing me!

With CRAZY amounts of rain in the region this year, hopefully the race will go off well this weekend. All the rain has done wonders to the track surface though. The traction is great and the rain has been self repairing the track surface.

Not too much new for me. I have been really busy with the kid and work projects so the cars have been sitting on the bench untouched for a while. I did manage to sneak out to Fatscats Indoor race last week though to run the RB5 (so much rain here, outdoor wasn't an option!). It was good to get some practice in. I am once again playing with new set ups I got from some other Factory Kyosho guys just to see how their set ups feel. I have not had a chance to run them yet though so the first time will be at the race! It will also be the first time running the new 2008 Orion Vortex motors and some new Kyosho parts.
