We'll see about the 8th, Karen's pretty cool about that stuff, but Washtenaw is an all day thing!

Bought my new MF2 Monday.... It's ready for electronics now.... May have a XXXTMF for sale soon.

Oh yeah. I really like it. It seems really planted. But also it is new. It's possible that if I took my MF1 and made all the joints like new it would feel good too. But I really like the MF2 and the way it handles so far. I think I am quicker with it. It seems to turn better with no slide out unless I crack the throttle to make it.

Does this track have a web site? Can someone provide a phone number or address if not?

Is there a hobby shop on site? If so, what is supported?

Jason, DJ1978 (Dan) is one of the main organizers of Washtenaw RC Raceway, without Dan and Carlos Washtenaw would not happen. Neither one of them is affiliated with a hobby shop, but they have arranged for some support from Riders in Ypsilanti. They bring in a basic supply of parts for Losi, AE, and a little Traxxas & Duratrax. They also bring in some tires, motors, batteries, and other like accessories. There was a website for Washtenaw that was run by Carlos but I think it bacame a little much for him to keep it updated so most of the Washtenaw info gets passed on thru this site and rcpimp.com, beyond that it's word of mouth & some flyers.

If you want more detailed info, PM Dan here at DJ1978.

David (& Jason), I don't know the exact street address of the track, but it is (will be) located at the Washtenaw Farm Council fair grounds on Saline Rd just South of Ann Arbor MI. It will be built inside building "F" for FUN!

I live in Pontiac & drive out there to race even though threr is a closer indoor track to me because I love it out there. If you can make it out, please do, you won't regret it.

Jason, Congratulations! Best wishes! And have a naughtily fun Honeymoon!

David, I just sold some stuff to reduce my "load", so this year I will be running Stock Buggy, Mod Truck, and E-Maxx. Last year I ran 4wd open, Mod truck, E-Maxx, & Mini-T. Sold the 4wd to reduce Motor maintenance it needed so much (Low turn motors!) & sold the mini-T just because.

New to Hobby

This message is for anyone that is interested in racing at this track but may feel a little intimidated because you're new to the hobby. DON'T BE.

Last year was my 10 year old and my first year of racing at an organized track. I couldn't have felt more welcome. Everyone was very friendly and very helpful. There are many people that have been racing for quite a while and are more than willing to offer advice and assistance to us Newbies.

This year my wife will be joining us in racing. We will all race in the novice class as our driving skills put our cars tire side up more often than tire side down but we all have to start somewhere.

We are looking forward to another fun year. :hat:
