As all of our updates indicate, it is raining. The race is basically over. Here are the highs and lows I noticed.

High: fun track layout.
Low: the track is currently under water.
High: the locals have been very friendly
Low: the locals are currently cursing under their breath
High: I got a fast run (top 5 I think?) in my first 4wd SC qualifier
Low: I traveled over 2000 miles to run a single qualifier
High: I’m flying home to sunny California today
Low: there’s this weather occurrence called a “hurricane” that may prevent me from leaving.
High: the Tekin Pro4 rocked
Low: Can’t use it in 2ft of standing water
High: the Pro-Line tires I ran were great in qualifier #1
Low: Pro-Line doesn’t make a tire that doubles as a hovercraft cushion

Ok time to go…I have a flight to make!

Executive Editor I jumped into R/C back in 1987, when mechanical speed controllers and hard rubber tires were all the rage. Since then, I’ve experienced R/C in almost every state in the USA. I've built and raced every type of RC vehicle created, and traveled throughout the country (and world) to attend and cover more R/C events than I can remember. But what a fun ride it's been! I'm fortunate to live in Southern California, and I take advantage of my location by enjoying R/C outdoors year ‘round. Club racing is the future for R/C growth, and I’m always looking to bring new people into the hobby, whether it’s through backyard bashing or organized racing.
