What's this?? No Comp chatter? Is everyone too tired? Sun stroke? I hope you all had a great time!?!

38 Entries this time around and a great time was had by all. Three challenge course were setup, with varying surfaces and layouts, to keep our drivers on the edge and pushing their limits.

Congrats to the top 3 in each class, awards are waiting for you at the shop!

2.2 Comp:
1st Eric Campbell
2nd Erik Gammon
3rd Peter Kalogiannis

2.2 Sport:
1st Adam Plasse
2nd Anthony Asaro
3rd Rob Chancey

Eric Campbell hit 2 negative scores this comp, a great improvement from last time. Eric wins the new Rock Steady crawler body donated by JConcepts.

Frank Dunn from Proline Accessories www.prolineaccessories.com donated a $100 JPH gift certificate towards a hardluck award. The jury couldn't choose who deserved it more, so it will be split 50/50 between Freddie Hammann and Curtis Weeks! Thank you FRANK!

A big thank you goes out to all those who lent a hand during the events, from our judges, to the score keepers, to those who helped setup and tear down, and those who helped haul the courses. Without you guys, I could not be doing this!

Please give me feedback on the event, so we can make improvements for the next one coming up in June!

Jake, had a great time yesterday. The course layout was awesome, can't think of any situation that was not tested. Only thing I noticed was no bonus lines.
Anyway, Thanks for hosting these events and giving us a place to get together and play. Off to the S.F. zoo now with the wife and kids to hang with a different bunch of animals.

Pete: Did the monkeys throw poop on you?? Congrats on your 3rd place finish at the comp!

Rudy: No 1:1's on the courses! Well, at at least I wouldn't have to haul them home, they would be in little parts and pieces!

All: I was busy judging, but how were Paul's 1:1 rock crawler rigs? I saw the pics, that black one looked SWEET! I still can't believe I was so focused that I missed them!

Hey, did it make you guys nervous to have the RPPD out in force??? Those guys are super cool and love these crawlers!

Guys, check out "First Look" in the vendors market. An indoor rock park in Paso Robles, not tooooo far south. Sounds like a larger version of CKRC in Reno.

Thanks again Jake, had a great time. And congrats to all the winners and to all who participated.....

(Yesterday, 11:58 PM) Jake, get some sleep

Another great comp day. Thanks Jake for hosting this one and getting the courses setup. Thanks to all the volunteers who helped setup/tear down the courses and to the volunteer score keepers who helped us out all day, especially Jason Noble who helped me out the entire day, except for when he was drivin'.

I've got some work to do on my rig for sure. It was twitchy on all three courses. Although, it did pretty well on the Linex course after the comp. Managed to make it all the way through without much problems. Maybe the problem is with the loose nut behind the wheel.

It was cool to see so much enthusiasm and I'm pretty sure I heard one of RP's finest say, "I gotta get me one of those, they're bad ass!".

Those sidehill panels were INSANE!!! Did anyone ever figure out what angle they were at? They had to be 60+ degrees!!

Anyway, congrats to all the winners and hope to see you all at the next comp., if not sooner!

Ethan: Just a little work and tweaking to the rig ... I think next time I'll let you sit in the shade for a few minutes and put your feet up, before getting called to the courses!

Had an excellent time on Saturday, I did feel very safe with all the heavy security around.
Nice guys, they were talking about having a sponsored crawler, which would be pretty cool. A black and white crawler with a light bar would be pretty sweet.

I'll have to talk to officer Josh about that black and white. Maybe I can get them a Ram system, with a working lightbar and sirens?

All the Axial springs are gray, or grey. They have a little dab of red paint on them, that makes them red. I think Eric repainted the dabs blue, just to throw you guys off .... But, I got the real setup and then posted it!!!

Seriously, I think it's awesome how everyone spends time with other drivers, talking setup, offering suggestions, etc .... It's an awesome group, that's for sure. And, it's been great to be part of the reason why we all get together!

And, speaking of get-togethers .... It's about time for another under the bridge session! Soon, real soon!

Default Photos?

Did anyone else take any photos from the comp? I'd like to get pics of more rigs, the courses, etc ... posted up on the site!

Zac also brought me a dvd of some video he took during the day. Only a few rigs got on the tape, but it's very cool to watch (painful at times though!)
