  • What an absolutely brilliant idea and how absolutely unfortunate that I won’t be able to attend. 🙁 Have fun everyone. Take plenty of pics and maybe I can hit the “2nd annual” event! 🙂 I think MrRCH and Steve will have a little advantage since I’ve seen their RC cars at plenty of events! 🙂

  • Dustin

    Hey Tom, you will be missed. However MrRCH and Steve, will NOT have the advantage, since we will all be driving NEW R/C cars just build. This is a DRIVERS event. All cars in the 3 classes are equal.

    Friends of CMMC, please read the very last line of the posting, before signing up.

    I’m going to hold off picking my car till I see where we need to fill in any racing field gaps.

  • Adam

    Awwww…. so i can’t bring my nitro fueled R/C car that hits 60mph?? well i guess that would give me somewhat of an advantage…lol

  • Can I pull a “mythbusters” and turn my MINI into an RC? I think I would win as I could crush the other cars in the field!

  • Adam

    Oh i guess i have to pick a class…hmmm considering my driving style i will have to go with the Inferno.

  • Dustin

    Adam, please bring the nitro if it’s dry out for some parking lot fun near by after the GP. 🙂

    Blake, your MCS is too big for the track. LOL

    This is a great Father Son Event, who wants to be my Father? 🙂

  • I’m your father, Dustin 🙂 Have fun all!

  • Awww…my “Darth Vader” HTML Mark-up didn’t work…Alas a joke gone awry….DOH!

  • Marco

    Im there. Will probably go with the falcon.

  • john & tommy

    A father son event … how novel 🙂

    we’ll see if it works into the schedule.

  • I will have to see if my dad wants to come along with me, My guess is no.

  • Jeff

    I have a classic dunebug style racer. If I can get I can get it running, I’ll bring it for the parking lot shootout.

    Inside, put me down for either the falcon or phantom.


  • Is there an age limit and attendance limit? I’m checking to see if my 4 year old nephew and 8 year old nephews are interested/available.

  • Adam

    Hmmm considering my lack of funds at the moment, i think i am gonna switch over to the falcon.

  • Dustin

    There is really no limit for attendance. Age, the 8 yr old would do fine, 4 yr old might have a harder time of it, but if Uncle GSK wants to bring them you are all more than welcome.

  • OK, put me down for a Phantom.

  • Jeff

    Put Rhiannon down for 1 Falcon

  • john & tommy

    OK, the schedule is working out. Put us down for at least one car, or two if you need it for the 20 person minimum. I don’t want to get creamed by the kid in RC cars. Losing at every Wii game in the house is bad enough.

  • Adam

    Something has come up and i will not be able to make it. have a good time guys, and i’ll bring my nitro car some other time.

  • I’m bummed, but the weekend is jammed and I won’t be able to participate. Have a great time all!!

  • Post event update, Tommy, John, Blake, Anthony and I had a great time. Yes “The Kid” Tommy beat all of us by a mile, even after 3 of us got faster cars then Tommy!

    Tommy, YOU DA MAN!

  • john & tommy

    Great father & son event. Couldn’t get the yellow car out of Mom’s hands when we got home. Thanks for organizing.

  • Good time, I have already caught the MOD bug. My RC GP has been lowered and a BBK installed!

    Thanks Dustin.

    Good to see you Anthony, Jim, Tommy and Dustin.
