    I’ve got a new team name and even a logo: Turbo Sloth Racing

    I’ve got two cars ready for next weekend for BASX: Orange Julius and Green Machine

    My son helped with the builds and he asked for a prediction, I told him I could promise that one of the cars would not come in last!

    We’re excited to see what happens!

    Hoping I can hit the ground running even half as fast as you have. You've been inspiring!

    Wow man... Thanks for the compliment. :)

    It's been a fun first season. I haven't done it alone thought. I've received a lot of good advise and pointers from the other racers on these forums. I've got a lot to learn still, but don't hesitate to hit me up if you have any questions as you start out... You're gonna enjoy racing in the leagues.

    I like the notch instead of a taper.
    Don't worry about last place I pretty much keep that locked up.
    Good Luck

    Nice first showing Turbo, and nice job Jupiter. I didn't get to see it live, but just watched the replay. That was fun watching you guys go at it. :)

    Thanks! It was quite the rush, we exceeded my expectations! Working on a new BASX car so we can watch at your tail lights this month at NPWDRL! :)

    Crazy how exciting racing these little toy cars is isn't it. Especially your first time out...

    I'm hoping that I make it in this month. My cars are nowhere near ready (like haven't even taken them out of the box after last month). Work and life have kept me out of the garage here recently... Maybe I'll just clean the wheels and send them back in.
