    Hey guys the prize is yet to be determined for this month. I will haft to get creative i only make $900 a month so i can barely afford to play with my RC most of the time so bare with me guys. Please still enter and have some fun. If anyone wants to judge this month with me just send me a pm and if your a judge you cant participate. I have 1 person so far as a judge, thanks!

    Hey traxxas we need voting allowed in the threads!

    bump for the contest so people can find it. cant wait to see how this turns out. Also i will be adding a new rule. Since we cant edit our post on here i will allow a entry then if you want you can re-enter a better pic. LIMIT 3 Total pics. Example: you post a pic. then you get a better one post that pic and if you get a better one again enter that and that would be it. but when you enter your 2nd or 3rd pic it will be your official pic the first and second pic are no longer eligable for the contest. I will use your final pic you post as your entry. Hope this new updated rule helps you guys out more.

    In the rules it says "No Photo Shopping is allowed" Does that include color correction?

    If Ya'll want to get your trucks to drift better, try whetting down the pavement lol. Add a little dirt to make some 'tails. Great pics though I can't drift anything like that lol. Hope I didn't bug anybody. Most of ya'll already knew that I'm sure.

    I don't know if I should give away how I got this pic or not. Hmmmm.....
    Okay here it is. If you have a digital camera that keeps on taking pictures until you take your finger off the button. Well get the electrical or what ever tape out and if needed just a one inch small trig or something to press against the button. Might end up with 40 pics. But that is the fun part. Looking through them all and really see what is going on with rc.

    This is Mine. I used Nunster's trick, and the picture was taken in Castle Valley, UT. Anyone who has been there will recognize castle rock in the background.
