Hi to everyone. I bought the 2 Protolites last yeara and imported them to Mexico. First race out was an expensive learning experience as we wrecked both engines with water ingress. After a long time awaiting Customs for the import of my new motor, had #17 up and running but no time to play! Finally this weekend I took it out on our new track and took a video. I know the video shows extreme LOFT "lack of f'ing talent" but I need more seat time and less air in the tires.

Very cool, looks like you have built yourself quite a track.

Glad you finally got the motor there & installed,,,,sounds good:)

With the live axle set up in these,,,,you have to power thru the corners with the throttle.
Slow makes you push right thru the corner.
I am sure you will have it down in no time, now that you have it running again.

Can't wait to see more video. Maybe someday I will make down for spring Break:D

Nice track and good beginner driving.

Jody needs to make a trip down there for a driving lesson. Maybe leave a car behind and bypass the import hassle . . .

It would be my pleasure to host Jody or any other member of MBN down here. Free driving lessons in exchange for free driving in the Protolites on the track and free paintballs in the Paintball park plus all the beer you can drink!

I live in Manzanillo, Colima. Trying to generate interest in offroad racing with the track. The current complaint of the offroad racers in this region is that there are less and less options as ranchers do not want cars ploughing up their land so offroad tracks will be the future. In Baja you have access to a whole lotta land for racing.
