On a suggestion from Rajat,I started this thread.


Well,I decided to go the track today.My brother was driving,I was the 'navigator' with google maps.Things went well till we reached the outskirts of the city.The roads.OMG!!! Shocked  Angry Angry

Well,we went off the path thrice.Scraped the roads a few times.Finally,reached the track. *sigh of relief*.Called Jayanth and guess what,we were in the wrong parking lot. Cheesy All that effort paid off.The Track at last. *sigh of relief again*


Met Jayanth and a guy called Abhishek.Spoke for a while,ran my slash.Those guys said I should treat it like a car,not a baby. Grin So,drove it on NiMH and it was an exhilarating experience.Jumping,cornering.........had SOOO much fun.Stopped and waited for Shashank and Divyam to arrive.They came separated by a few seconds.Finally met some more guys.So,we started again and practiced and played around.Had fun racing Divyam.Psst,I beat him Grin Roll Eyes  Cool

Saw the revos and a pulse running.Nitro sounds good.Played with the guys.Crashed a lot.The slash came out without much damage.

Had lots of problems with my 'navigation' on the way home.My brother is slightly angry now and I'm typing this.But all that trouble was WORTH it.It was a SUPERB day at the track.My thanks to all the guys who were there.Had a BLAST.

Now,its cleaning and (possible) damage assessment on my slash.

Now you guys must be thinking ,"I read through all of this,WHERE ARE THE PICS!!!???"Grin .Well,Divyam and Shashank took some pics.They'll put them up later.

Today,we had 2 slash 4x4s(Divyam,me),2 revos(Jayanth,Shashank),one pulse(Abhishek),one TT MT4 G3 and a TT Tomahawk.(Both were Joe's cars).


Joe's MT4G3 was AWESOME!!It didn't handle as well as I expected it to.Even with a center diff,it wheelied.Still,it was one bad@$$ car.

Couldn't have asked for a better saturday! Met many RC enthusiasts, had a great time running at the track with some peace of mind  Grin Went to meet Jayanth, Divyam and Gandhar but it was nice to meet Abhishek and Joe too. Lost a lot of time getting to the track and i think those who had already reached lost some time. Sorry to everyone i kept waiting, will make it on-time the next time. Running at the track was awesome fun  Smiley lost count of how many tanks i ran today. All in all, had a great time and we should do this more often  Wink

@Gandhar: Even while returning i lost my way !! Got stuck in MAD traffic and reached after 1.5 hours. May be i'll hit the track tomorrow too

PS: Rajath and tassem left to meet. Hope it'll happen soon  Smiley

Here are a few pics i clicked and a small video

Not bad. I have 2 x 2400 Nimh as of now.

Do they have peak chargers for lipos there? Or one has to carry their own charger?
