Yang it was nice meeting you. Hopefully your work gives you more oppourtunity to race with us here in Florida. I probably would have tried to work on the car more but I was racing two classes and I was just too tried and it was extremely too hot. I think the weather was just getting to me. Looks like I'll be replacing my GTX with at GTB for some brushless action on the DBR12 Our state series may be leaning towards that....

The worst is the crapper at BMI. It smells like Satan's ashtray. Everyone smokes but 4 people and you would think all the rest have spastic colons as often as they are in the john.

Yang,

Sure was nice to meet you this weekend, glad we could help out. It was hot out, and the car finally came around...

Eugene.... Glad the suggestions helped, we can work on it some more at the next state race.

Jay, thanks for the props, the car was a caddy all day, so easy to drive hard. Now I need to work on getting a little more motor...

Jason, Thanks for all the help this weekend. Asphault is definately a talent. And I don't have the talent. The car was good for the main, Wish I had it that way all weeekend. I might have been able to hang with the leaaders by the main.

Also, thank your wife for me. She was such a trooper to hang out while you worked on my car.

Florida sure has a great bunch of guys, I borrowed everything, but batts, car and chargers. oh wait, I borrowed most of jason's car for the main. lol

thanks again for a great weekend.

I'm putting electrics on my DB12R, quick question: Do I need a large capacitor for ESC (5600uf) ? or a regular size one (2700uf) is enough for 4cells 19T?

I think Dumas runs the smaller capacitors to the best of my knowledge. Should be plenty.

Personally I'm waiting on the new Tekin before I get into BL for 1/12th. The LRPs just have too many issues with Spektrum for me and the Novaks are just too big.

I have to agree on both counts on the lrp, but I have heard from a little birdy that the tekin might be a while
