Belated.....Howdy
« on: March 04, 2013, 06:39:22 PM »
Hey all,

Have been a member since Aug last year, and thought I better pull my finger out and say a belated Howdy!

I used to race 1/8 scale here in Adelaide until about 3 or so years back. After getting jack of the expense, the short run times and endless chase of the right tune, I saw the light and purchased a Baja .... HPI Baja 5T 2.0 and set about upgrading it from day one.

Found out about SALS @ Monarto and joined straight away and now enjoy being part of (and actively participating in) an evolving RC Car Club (I am the current Treasurer). I raced my Baja at SALS relatively successfully and about 2 years ago, I added to my stable an MCD Cheetah, which I brought off Craig and also raced that at SALS...also relatively successfully... I may not be as fast as everyone, but consistency is where I made gains ;)

About 12 months ago, I bought a Losi 5ive-T as I wanted a change......and I have always been a Losi fan since my 1/8 scale days so it was only a matter of time once Losi joined the fray. 

Have enjoyed 1/5 so much, I drove across to Esperance for Baja's @ Bimbadeen 2012, and also drove to Brisbane for the 1/5 scale Offroad Nats late last year. No doubt I or ably met a few of you over there!

I had all 3 for a period until I sold my MCD as the Losi was my 4x4 race car of choice.

A little while ago, I also bought a Losi XXX-SCB to hack around with when time permits. They're a great little beast and have since got a few little upgrades to test out. Haven't had the chance to install any of them yet lol.

Have now decided to sell my beloved Baja at what I think is a bargain price. I'm sure some of you may have seen it. If you know of anyone interested, let em know ;)

Anyways, always enjoy having a sticky beak on LSD every now and then and contributing where I can.

Will upload a few pics in a bit ;-)


Dave

Haha...

Thanks fellas!

I ended up selling the R8 :(
Got really sick and tired of worrying about where I parked it all the time....and when it got keyed....that was the last straw....bastards!

Whilst still a Holden man, I ended up getting a Navara Dual cab....easier to carry the toys :)
