Does anyone want to go to a comp this weekend? Just north of Atlanta.

Here is my plan, I will leave here tomorrow (wednesday) to work Thursday at Georia Tech and Friday morning at an Semi conductor manufaturer. Friday night I am meeting up with the SECRC guys to camp near the comp. Saturday all day comp, Sunday travel back to here (with a short stop in Gainesville, Ga. (MTB course).

If anyone want to participate in anyof this let me know. The SECRC guys do sign up on-line and if you sign up the day of the comp you go first. SO the sooner people sign up the better their starting position.

I hope its not a scale thing, I left that truck in Charlotte.

I have my MTB with me and rode the 96 Olympic track yesterday, wow it is very cardio challenging. Not terribly technical, but it is way more humid in Atlanta then in Charlotte.

Hey there

The comp was great. The SERCRC club is hardcore. The drivers are all very good, and have super durrable and capable trucks to back it up.

I busted a bearing, 5995 Servo, two dif gears and one counter gear in running three course with the clod.

The 2.2 did not get damaged, because I did not push it.

Great guys to hang with, the courses were significantly more challenging then ours and probably only half of the trucks finished each course.

Hey Tony

The servo should be replaced by Hitec under warranty and the gears are no big deal.

I received the new Integy spools in the mail on Saturday. Maybe those will hold up.

I did see CVD's get broken at this comp. This club is very serious about competing and the guy that just won the Axial west coast event won the 2.2 class at this event too.

The winning 2.2 was running the new Losi tires and someone also had the new 1.9 RC4wd tires there just for show. Both looked cool.

A big thanks to Fishmax and Steven for the gears to get me onto course 2 and 3. Also thanks to Badd for the hospitality.

hey tony

The 1.9s from rc4wd are significantly taller then the Hilift tires. They were on a 1.9 wheel not glued and the bead fit very well.

The Losi crawler tire appears to be exactly the same size as the moab, but may have cleaned itself a little better. It won against moabs and mashers, but that drriver would have won with pin spikes. He was very smooth.

Overall the drivers at the SERCRC event were very slick, I learned a ton watching them drive. I also came up with the design for my super for nationals. I will start building that next weekend. My 2.2 was not competetive at this comp (no dig, not enough ground clearence, to low of a breakover angle) and I am not sure if I care. I might just leave it alone and run nationals with it for fun. But I would realy like a top 10 at national with the super.

I can not stress how much smoother the guys at the comp were then me. They opperated their 4 channel (or 6+channel) radios like it was a 2 channel pistol grip. Watching the supers climb the offcamber stuff and wiggle their way through a gate that was perpendicular the the travel path was just awesome.
