    Mako Shark at the H.B. Pier-photos

    Great shots! They're always there. You just don't see them all the time. Heck, we rarely get a visual on them when we're diving either.

    Nitro Circus / True Trophy Truck on MTV!

    Shock help? Indeed! Someone needs to put a call into John Hoffman. Mike Johnson is a great wheel... especially when he's in Atilla. (Yes I am a bit biased) -G

    Cheating with helicopters

    SCORE had mandated a couple of years ago (at a TT driver/ owner meeting down @ SPD) that all helicopters observing the race were to be no lower than 500 feet, and to the right of the race vehicle they were observing.

    Pflueger Racing @ the Baja 1000!

    Fish is correct... Atilla was originally a Porter build, but since his original incarnation, he's had quite a few design implementations. It would be safe to say he's changed drastically to fit the needs of Alan's driving style. In this particular case, especially for this race, Atilla...

    Pflueger Racing @ the Baja 1000!

    I know many of you have been asking, so I'll be the first to tell you, Alan will be racing the Baja 1000! Mike Johnson (aka Bronson, CORR Pro 2 #31) will be the team's 2nd driver. Atilla will be the weapon of choice. Everyone on the team is very excited at the prospect of returning to Baja...

    Pflueger shop changes

    Re: Pflueger closes down shop I will be posting an official statement for RDC shortly, as I'm working on something right now with Alan. For what its is worth, it is what it is. Its that simple. Times are economically rough, and sadly, some sacrifices have had to take place. Its been 6 years...

    Team Associated (SC8?) Stadium Truck

    When you see one close up, you'll understand the price point... and they are independent rear & AWD. The SC8 is built waaay bulletproof, and has gotten me excited about racing RC's again! Team Associated has raised the bar again, with such an incredibly well built & accurate piece of "moving...
