Yes brothers....I have been seduced...

I stopped into last weekends AMSRA endurance race for a few pics and to see the guys run Rossburg at speed...

One of the teams had some serious light issues during the night phase and got behind a couple laps....a couple hundred actually...

Part of that team had to leave for a prior family engagement late in the race.....so I was asked to run their car for the close of a segment...I figured it was ok as I wasnt going to endanger anyones chances....so I jumped right in...

Me....driving a super mag....Turning 7 sec laps on 114 ft track on the hardest lane......with a cheese eating grin....

I ordered my first Wizzard storm tonight....I hope to have it for the race after next...with any luck...maybe even for next sundays race...

No...I'm not giving up my T-jets, X-tracks, or G+ cars...or my SG+...

But my god....those things fly....I'm hooked...well...ok.....I'm hooked WORSE.... :cool:

Actually having a group to run with is a completely new phase for me...even if it is entirely friendly competition...it is competition...

I notice there isnt much love for slot rockets here....but I will be posting some race coverage and layout pics for the races I am able to attend to the end of the season...Hope you check it out...

Now I need a good controller... :tongue:

AND a power supply.....

and some spare parts....

And some spare lex bodies....

and some frickin room!...hehehe

As a little backround here,
This was the first club I EVER raced with. Probably around '84. I missed the first eduro Because of the flu. But I was involved in a few of the pre-race testing sessions with my buddy Jules.
They wanted to run fast with high-downforce. But this led to overheating. So they were practicing how fast they could switch out an arm. We piddled with that for a while, trying to come up with ways or tools to get the job done quicker. (All this had to be done under green in the race)
So I said, why don't you just glue everything together? Endbells mags and springs. It would be a snap in deal.
Well they won by 200+ laps and the club promptly made a rule regarding the glue thing.

The next year the light burned out even before the night segment started, so we followed the car around the track with a flashlight.
More rules got enacted after that one too.

This a great race and a great time. If you guys want a FUN time. Try an enduro, it's a blast. espesaily if you make it a Bag-Of-Parts deal were you must build the car under green.

Tim
