Hey All;

Mike and I are getting some trucks ready for the Fairborn, Ohio comp. He got his axles this moring and you guys saw my truck already bounce arround at the last two comps (the one I ran in Super, not the AX10).

We have a comp scheduled for July 20th at the Dam. Mike and I will not be able to attend. It is up to Wade if he wants to put the event on. If he does put the event on, everyone needs to help as much as possible.

My plan for Ohio is to drive to Pittsburgh on Thursday, do some work on Friday and then shot accross (4hr) to the comp location. Mike may ride with me, not sure yet. Then on Saturday I plan to beat Mike and hopefully finally finish 3 courses at a big event without breaking something.

Hey

Speaking about dig problems, 7 of the 7 HS-81 servos I have had stripped gears, but I had ons spare set of gears on the wall.

My suspension is a flexy as a touring car. I really need that set of wheels I bought 2 months ago and have still not received. And I will go with longer travel shocks and softer springs. But all that can be done in the hotel room on Thursday night.

I'm using the HS 225 off my VF Dig. I had a HS 81 and put it on and it was dead__________.

Well that seams to working well for you, I am glad to hear you already broke your truck (in less the 12 hours).

I am totally going to kick your ass at this event.

Hey Brandon,

Thanks for wishing us good luck.

Hopefully you can start joining us for events. I am almost sure that there will be buy-in spots for the 2.2 Nationals, and we have an extra spot in the 4runner.

Wheels are here. Just need to paint the body and tune the chassis/shocks on Friday.

I should be ready.

See you in the morning Mike.

Hey Tim:

Thank you, first we need to do well at the Ultimate 2.2 deal.

We are in PA, and Mike broke my truck (I was driving it, and I am sure that Mike broke my upper links).

Just have to work here tomorrow and then we go to the site. (4 hour drive tomorrow evening).

We are are here.

We looked at the comp courses. They are loose rocks, not big rocks. It will be interesting, lots of holes.

hey

Mike and I placed in the top ten. He got tenth and I got sixth. I missed the top 5 shootout by 3 points.

Both of our trucks held up, but Mike experienced a temporary servo failure. The failure cost him time, but likely no points.
