Michigan Monster of RC January Edition

Post by Budhatrain » Sun Jan 13, 2013 3:53 am

This year I have committed to spend less money in buying new projects and spending more time (and money) in going to racing and meeting people face to face. I really enjoyed ihobby and Clodapalooza, so this has inspired me to look for opportunities and the Michigan gang host a great monthly event.

Last month I was able to bring two local friends and they were bit by the Monster Truck bug bad. Chad (fatboy) committed to the long road trip and joined me again this month- bringing three trucks of his own. Chad is super creative and motivated to be different-- he brought 2 ground pounders and his wraith pounder. The show stopper was his cheap ebay pounder and performed really well! Chad is a great driver and once his equipment is dialed in- WATCH OUT!

Today was also the first time for me to represent two great companies-- CowRC and RC4WD. I am real excited about these two partnerships and today reinforced for me how awesome these two opportunities are! Both companies are a great asset to the RC community and a great support for Monster Truck racing. Both were used in my setups... CowRC products are a staple in my fleet and pit area and I recently outfitted my "Superman" mod clod with RC4WD rumble tires. Many guys already runs these tires and do really well. Today they performed very well for me. My Superman has seemingly had kryptonite or something strapped to it. With this truck, over the past months, if it wasn't one thing then another. But today is was stable able and ran consistent. I need to make some tweaks and shave, but I have already placed an order for another set. I think my NightWing will probably get the new shoes.

Once again a great turn out, great group of well rounded (some more than others) guys and awesome display of Monster Coolness. I know, a lot of you are jealous, but make plans and join us sometime. Look at how many trucks were here!

I think the keys to a great racing day is a couple things: good group of guys (guys you want to hang with), decent location, and organized racing! Here are some more pics of the people and fun today...

Serious... if you are on the bubble, you need to come out and race-- even if you don't have a truck, just come out and see for yourself. Thanks again Joe and the whole Michigan Monsters Racing Crew!

OH I ALMOST FORGOT, it's all about the driving pose!

Brad looks like a great guy :D
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming to the Lord,
"Wow, What a ride!"
