    Hey all,

    Just got back into RC after a 20 year break. One of the best things about having kids is that I get to relive my childhood; but now I can afford all of the things I wanted as a teenager, lol.

    Ran a lot of associated cars in the past but none compare to my SC10.

    I can't believe how far things have progressed.

    Welcome to the forum!

    You're right, things have changed in 20 years.... Check LiPo batteries and brushless motors :)

    I'm there, I've actually been bashing slashes with my son. we are both bushless with LiPo.
    We found a local track and I bought a SC10 to be a little more competitive. AE and I have history.
    I used to race a gold pan staduim truck on carpet.


    "FL <<< where????"

    I live near Ocala, about 2 hours north of you

    Newred is one of the BEST tracks I've ever raced on, just wish they would raise their LiveRC camera! :) It's placement doesn't do the track justice.

    I'm at Newred about every 2-3 months, will let you know when I'm going to be there next time.

    Yeah, NewRed is a great track. I went to race there yesterday, but 2 laps in
    it was evedent that my truck wasnt properly setup properly. So, instead of paying
    registration fees I spent the money on upgrades.

    maybe I'll start a thread . ..

    how do i watch LiveRC ?

    You tried the stock tires didn't you!:(

    Mayfield setup for the roar nationals 2011 is the best start place for what I know about Newred.

    lol, no stock tires.
    started off with barcodes rear and carvers front.

    after a few laps i switched to suburbs all around, seemed to steer and
    grip better.

    thats where my setup started, and I just changed it from there.

    Im starting my own thread tomorrow in the SC10 section.
    I'll begin with a backstory . . .
