Novak had that goody bag in our pits on saturday morning.
Scotty, you did an awsome job with the race
Neil - good point about the freebies. To all who have never attended a Novak race - this is more than just a race. It is truly an event. I was constantly occupied from New Year's day morning until getting home last night. Great stuff was being given out all weekend. My tally:
- Event t-shirt
- Novak gift on Saturday morning (solder, fan, Novak batt. bars)
- Duratrax aluminum body reamer
- Novak t-shirt
Many people got much more. There was a Hakko soldering iron that was given away in the raffle. I bought 24 tickets to give me the best chance at it, but to no avail... If you were in an A-main or won a lower main, you got a really, really sharp trophy, Novak shirt or hat, and I think even a Smart Tray. That is a lot of expensive and nice stuff.
If you won the 13.5 rubber E-Main, you won a brand-new XRAY T2008.
But, after this event, I am 100% sold on brushless. I will never buy another brushed motor unless it is for a special purpose (i.e. Tamiya mini race, rubber tire nationals). My 13.5 clicked away like a champ all weekend without even a single glitch.
