Hello from Denver, Colorado USA
« on: December 30, 2017, 03:57:31 PM »
Howdy all...

My name is Lou, I am just now re-igniting my love of off-road RC racing after a 26 year hiatus. I was a pretty hard-core 1/10th scale 2wd modified racer from 87-91 (RC10's) then a volcano changed my priorities and just never got back into it.

Over the last 2 months I have been diving back in and have discovered the 1/5th scale world. I'll be picking up an HPI Baja 5b SS (second hand) tomorrow and am trying to make all the possible connections I can to learn about these cool-as-hell mechanical beasts.

It has been a long while since I was last in AU, hope to return there sooner rather than later to see good friends and maybe even race some.

Looking forward to meeting and learning from many of you through this forum.

Welcome mate, there are plenty of guys here who know a whole lot about baja’s. You have started off right by going genuine to start with, but as with all second hand gear, do a full tear down and rebuild when you get it, it will help with repairs later

Welcome mate, can't help you with any Baja stuff but I do have some relatives in the Springs.

Last time there we stayed up in Denver a few days around Cherry Creek, nice place.
