I know you mentioned on OSE about running this weekend and I didn't say anything. I have too much to do already this weekend but if we can round up enough people that want to go (and retrieve boat) the Saturday or Sunday after Thanksgiving I'd be game for that if it's weather fit.

That was a long read.. thanks. Seems some still are having the bounce issue even so. Some are just getting lucky I guess? I spent hours on mine today, using the exact placement of things those guys had and it bounced so bad it was releasing the hull from the surface of the water and trying to ride on the prop. I gave up out of frustration and started working on something else.


As for the weekend after Turkey Day. I should be good for that. I have access to Kayaks if we cant get the aluminum boat.

Hmmm looks like we may have to find another auxillary camera man. Otherwise P mono vids may be like Q with all hands full of radios.

Scott,
That Titan 29 was my old LSO that I traded to Diegoboy last March for his Team Associated SC10 truck.

Its going to start in Spec, because I have a Proboat ESC and a BJ/ MG motor I can toss in it.

Awseome, I guess you get to become friends w/ it again! Good to know I have an original owner to help set it back up.


I will be out there Sunday with my Genesis, Geico (although I lost my race prop today) M445 if anyone has one I could borrow. Ordered a new one today but wont see it obviously til next week. What else, SV27, and Im going to bring my twin HOTR and run a few passes. Finally getting her dialed back in. I may bring another boat or 2, not sure yet

I really do wish I didn't suffer from CRS so bad. I can't remember the names of the two new guys that came up from Port Charlotte today. Did get this video of the King of Shaves mono running against the other ones cat though.

Here's the one Scott & Chris will want to see as the 3 of us go at it with 3 Genesis cats in the water at once. I had 1st pretty well sewn up until getting into a corner just a little too frisky. Two on 6s and one on 4s. The 4s won.

For me, the easist way to win a heat. Run a class where there's noboby else running.
Here's my DF41 clone with Neu 1527/1.5y on 10s. Still has a ways to go far as beimg dialed in goes, but a lot better than it was.
