Track seems really loose, or is it just the ill handling of your truck? :mrgreen:

Well..... somebody got the hang of getting around that track... :mrgreen:
I raced the pede' against the 4x4 SCT's again Sunday and qualified 3rd for the A-main. I'm in 2nd.... and the only guy within striking didstance of the LOSI that's leading.... and he breaks the #1 rule of racing.... "always check yer' nuts"........ tires goes rolling. Luckily for him, his buddy saw it. and ran from the pits with a nut+wrench... met him just as he got to the truck, he only lost like a lap and a half.

He caught up once to get his lap back.... but that was it. Only downer was that because this was the start of our points series.... they had to take a lap away from me to give the front-runners thier points, but even then, I was still on tha lead lap (4th), but they did announce that I was the "actual" winner of it. I was happy, as that was all I wanted to do, was win at least one race with this. Would like to see some kind of 4WD truck class, but I don't think it's likely.

Anyways.... the pede' 4x4 kicked butt Sunday. =D>
