Here is my first entry in a new category I’ve been asked to start. I have kept a bunch of racing memorabilia through my career. Once a week I will showcase a new piece from my collection.
This is my first RC kit I ever built. Up till 2006 my Dad did all my mechanic work. In 2006 Team Associated came out with a new 1/10 gas truck, the GT2. The GT was race proven and had never lost a National Championship. I had won 2004 and 2005 National Championships with it, and I was nervous to debut the new truck. I was very new to working on my cars, but I managed to get it all together, and it worked pretty good. I qualified 4th, but I was able win the main. It was my 3rd gas truck National Championship in a row, and the first with me as mechanic, and the new GT2. It’s a very special car to me. Check out my patented tucked back antenna. That was a trademark of mine in gas truck.
