We just had our first official Slash race last night.This is definately the most fun I have ever had with any R/C.We had 8 trucks enter,which is exactly how many the track/hobby shop owner ordered.Everyone had a blast even though most guys were on their lids more than their wheels.I couldn't stop laughing the whole time the race was on! I ended up getting 1-2-1 in my heats and taking the TQ on my third heat.Managed second in the main,but the real action took place as soon as the race ended.It was the last race of the night and after everyone crossed the finish line,a big demolition derby started at the end of the front straight!Even the track owner,who takes his racing very seriously couldn't help but get in on the action.This looks like it will be a huge success and I have a feeling there will be at least 5 more Slash trucks there next weekend.I really like the fact that everyone wants to win,but noone takes it too seriously.It's a nice change of atmosphere after running mod. truck class where it is very serious and cut-throat.It's also good to see that the guys who usually win nitro and mod. classes being completely out of control in the Slash class.All the top locals are getting in pile-ups and jumping off of the track or falling off the sides of jumps.I just don't know what could possibly be more fun than these trucks!
I know you're gonna read this Paul.I just want to warn you that there's more where that came from for next Saturday!
