Nice...I go to a pancake house very close to that spot. If you ever visit checkout Underground Raceway. It's a club type place in the old bread factory on about State and 54th. Some places change...some are the same. I worked in Austin...Wesss Side!




On a side note anyone use these on their Core 5000? And no I have nothing to do with them...just looks like a cool name :P

Email Schu UK about that. Schu USA does not run the website. Me and PW complainted for the last 6 years about it and the previous one.

Magic Marker has the nexus bars on his Orion 4800 and they are too long for the Mi3 carpet chassis. He had to cut the ends off to make them fit. Not to mention they dont take advantage of all the area in the abttery slot. I have been playing with melting lead (solder, which is roughly 60% lead and 40% tin I think) in the battery slots. If I were able to take advantage of all the area under the battery and not extend above or below the chassis I think you could get about 80-90 grams in there. I used this method on an RDX last year and it worked well.

I have the weights and to be honest I'm not really sold on them. Like AWD mentioned, you have to cut them because they are too long for the MI3 slots. However you can put two of them into one slot with a 2.5mm chassis. I still think that melting some lead into a jig and putting that into the slots is the beeter way to go and will allow for more weight to be used.

We have a few Core LiPo's in stock and more on the way


As for the website I would keep it better updated if I knew how and there's nobody to blame there but myself for not asking how to Shawn and Chris both on that one.

Even if you have to cut and double up the Nexus weights I think it still would be better then loading up on lead weights on top and the side of the battery. Should help it from sliding a little when taped.

Scotch makes a thin double sided tape. It is the same thickness as normal Scotch tape and its see through. The dispenser looks like a clear dispenser of normal tape but it has a yellow plaid pattern on the back part. I put this on the bottom of my Core pack in a few spots and stuck it to my chassis. This will not hold it on but it will keep it from sliding. Then I used strapping tape to secure it.
