Wow! Its been a while..

Well, couldn't have a better update.. video coming as well..

Spent the weekend mixing it up at the NENQ...

Huge thanks to my sponsors, JRH (HH) for the great motors that powered me to the podium and Calvin (CW crawlers) to steer me there..

I also tied turbofest for 2nd in 2.2s! (Which landed me a 3rd place finish with the tie breaker bein his better score on the previous course)

These are dam side ways and I can't rotate them. The phone didn't get turned far enough sideways when video started..

No video on this one.. got to comp with gsrcrc this past weekend. A little change of pace. Was rolling thru gate 9 with only 2 reverses and the rig died.. :/ thought the lvc kicked in and timed out.
Put a new battery in an down at the start gate of course 3. Went to go and it dropped in its tracks. Hmm.. so I picked it up a foot or so and dropped it. Everything worked fine for course 3.. ran a couple packs since and still no issues..

Another comp with EPA at rausch this weekend. Wife will be along, so video coming from that comp.

Here's the scores from gsrcrc

Those are some nice vids! That steering is pretty bad ass.

I really shouldn't have watched these...now I'm really thinking I need steering like yours.

Thanks man! Yeah, the steering is catching on.. I know one guy getting ready to do it an a couple over the winter ready to do it.. but then I'll have to rely on my driving to win an not just the added bonus of not having to take reverses! Lol..

Thanks, yeah, I saved My ass on that one.. lol..

The rig is awesome an just works! It reacts diff to some situations then sprung but have learned to compensate. On the plus side, it reacts diff in situations then sprung and I have learned to capitalize on it. :thumbup::cool:
