With a personal invitation from Mike Bishop, president of ACORA, I decided to make plans to attend a BBQ at the Azusa Canyon Offroad Park which was being put on by ACORA and a few other willing compadres on March 31st, 2012. Though the course is not open to the full scale rigs yet, due to some political mess that Mike is dealing with, he had it open to RC cars and was hoping to have a classic show up and throw down comp. So with that in mind I loaded up my RC’s, chargers, parts and gate markers and the family too and headed up for the BBQ. When I got there several people were already there including Wayne from CORVA. It turned out to be a really fun event that had a laid back competitive touch. I threw down enough gates to run 3 courses that were fun enough for the variety of rigs we had on hand. I got to meet some great Axial fans at the BBQ and also make some new ones. The weather was windy and chilly at times but nothing the jacket couldn’t handle. We had burgers, dogs and carne tacos for lunch.

It was great to see every model of Axial rig even built at the BBQ. Honcho, Wraith, AX10.

It has been a long time since I have seen a super class crawler.

If it could crawl, it could compete.

A little tunnel action never hurt nobody… fortunately no one got stuck.

Angeles Natiaonl Forest has some really cool OHV trails. If you get the chance, get out and go enjoy what they have to offer. There are plenty of places to go exploring with RC’s and have some fun.
