    my sons first time at the track.

    ha ha so my 9yr olds first time at the track today. needless to say he needs a lot more track time and practice. he was all over the place and never got off the throttle. after giving him crap a few times and giving him instructions he got better. we had a good time even though i spent a good portion flipping his slash over and getting it unstuck. also gonna get him a set of track tires cause he was sliding everywhere.

    well prepped clay track. it had a very small amount of loose dirt on top i think cause they just re-made the track. his setup is stock.

    Congrats on the father-son time! R/C cars have given my son and I some extra time together.

    Start em young,my Grandson just turned nine yesterday.
    I'm still a bit leery about taking him to the indoor track,hoping the weather will break soon and we can go to some of the outdoor tracks,while none else is there.
    That way it's him the track,and the trees.And a lot of spare parts.lol.
