Looks like I'll be the only one from Houston again. For anyone considering going, let me tell you it's well worth the trip. It would be nice to support our east neighbors.

That body is friggin SWEET! I always wanted to mount up a late model body on my 1/10 sc10, but I think it would be way cooler on a Baja. I'm gonna look up his facebook page.

I'm officially in the EDM class. Just picked this up from a forum member. It's been a shelve queen way to long I'm ready to throw some dirt on it.

Totally reworked the track into a bowl shape to help with drainage of the track surface. Should make it faster also with the bank in the whole track surface.

Thanks Guys

I want to sat thinks to Travis and Rick for a place to enjoy our sport. I have been to many R/C pay tracks "none hold a candle to track quality" The amount of work, effort and MONEY it takes to pull this off is easy to over look when you just show up on race day. Trust me it takes work to provide a race ready track... Travis was watching his kids last weekend so I went to lend a hand since the track was holding a foot of water in the center of the oval and everything else was MUD!


I use HIS tractor HIS diesel and HIS equipment and it would have been easy for him to say "cancel" But in true spirit he was ready to drop cash and time on anything needed so we could race. Sat. night folks were laughing under there breath at the tractor spinning in the mud:scooter: BUT SUNDAY WE RACED ... So guys please remember the cost and labor and time it takes to give this gift to us.... There is no charge no cover no nothing so when you see him or Rick Tell them thanks and ask if you can pitch in...
Things the track can use?

One MILLION Dollars!
P.a. horn
Big lights
Water pump for well and for center of track until drain is installed
Red clay for the tracks God knows how much they spent so far!
A friend of mine is trying to get us a rubber tire compactor roller that pulls behind a truck
T shirt donations or anything to give race winners
Use your imagination
If you like something support it or it will GO AWAY
P.s Its high time Lufkin R/c park is reconized as a real track on the fourms

Sorry if Im long winded but I think a thanks is in order
