I'm new to the forum, but have fell in love with it! Thanks for having a place for us RC-10 fanatics to share, learn, and grow.

Thanks for founding the site and thanks to LowGear for taking it over. I so much prefer forums over Facebook groups and recently I have started to see forums fading. I was worried when I saw the title to the post, but this is good news for a great site.

First let me just say thanks for the adulation. It's the amazing members here that made me jump at the opportunity to take over Bill's spot. I hope to carry this incredible community far into the future.

I will be mainly handling all of the server-side details to make sure things stay running as smoothly as possible. Scr8p will continue to be thee guy around here on the front-end of things for as long as he desires. Nothing's going to change in that regard. That's not to say I won't be hands-on with the front-end of things when necessary.

Gradually over time, larger improvements will be made for a better user experience, but for the time being as I become situated, things will remain relatively the same with some smaller improvements being made. Any potentially major changes I consider implementing will always be discussed in the open first to get member's input.

Now that I will be taking over both ClodTalk and RC10Talk, I will be ending all of the other online projects I'm part of so that these two sites are able to be my main focus. If you ever have any questions or concerns, always feel free to message me.

Bill, you have created a monster. This monster is something you need to be proud of and we all thank you for your efforts.

I am so looking forward to how things will grow. Thanks to all the moderators for the time you put in, and to all the members here for the input.

We all know it would not be what it is, with out the effort put in by all. Here is to the next ten plus years. Thanks Bill.

Thanks for all your hard work. The Losi forum here helped to rekindle my interest in the hobby, and the experts here helped me to rebuild many buggies and stadium trucks.

Good luck to both of you moving forward!

Thanks Bill for creating this place. I was able to get an ancient gold pan running again over 10 years ago with my youngest son and we still occasionally will work on a car together. Although I don't post here much anymore, I still lurk here frequently just to see what's going on.

Thank you to Lowgear for keeping the torch lit going forward! I love coming here for the extensive knowledge minus the attitude of the facebook groups.
