Torrance and I had some fun at Westcoast Rc on Weds the 26th, the track is a tight layout. The use of tire solution is a must they slurried the track and now its inconsistant in many areas. The tire solution would wear off in about 6-8 minutes and then you have to perform a balancing act around the track. I'm wearing the camera glasses so I'm always in the picture,Torrance is super fast with his ZH. Ignore the date at the bottom its wrong.

It better be soon! My wife's due on Oct. 21st.

My eighth scales are good to go, I run them every now and then during lunch.
My fifth scale is a roller right now, it's not looking good.

WE had a great time RUNNING THE DOTS there in Fremont!

There was a HUGE amount going on in activities in the Bay Area. Fleet week (blue angels), The GAME, Other big events in San Francisco. Many of the "new" guys just had plans. There was new interest there. I big hello to Jason who brought his Bike(s) to show and googled at our 1/5 bikes. (I think he already has one on the way)

Many newly interested ones (11 total) did indeed email me to say "next time" because they had plans with the family on this active weekend. Looking forward to meeting even more of these new guys.

Stubby and Sammy are always faithful as usual and together with all of us we had a GREAT TIME. The "dots" were good to us and CARVING the dots were a pleasure as usual.

Stubby's Bike was fast and nimble. (hope you get those warn out bearings out of their location stubbs!!)


We will get together again in a couple to a few weeks!!! Date to be announced.

If anyone have a preference please post up!

My Good sir, Please PM me your phone number so I can put you on the list to call personally or Text personally on our meets......

However, THIS very forum is also a direct way to know where we will be at next for future meets.

Both would ensure your information will be accurate and easy.

Hey guys, I'm interested in getting into R/C bikes.I have been racing the gambit of of classes out here in Texas for a couple years now and I travel to CA once a year and would love to join you guys on occasion.

I was getting ready to pull the trigger on a Kyosho 1/8 HOR bike off eBay, then I realized the bike has been discontinued after trying to find replacement parts for it.

Can you provide a link to where you are getting your motorcycles and parts?
How long do your tires last?
Which traction compound are you using?
What are the most common breaks you experience with them?
Any recommended spare parts to stock up on?

Thanks!
-Bill

*** EDIT ***
If you run different brands of bikes, is there one brand that tends to do better on the track than others? Pro/cons for each?
I am interested in brushless with top speeds in the 30-40mph range.
