Paul says that he can feel the servo change speed at times too with out a receiver pack due to the super high amp draw on the system. With the receiver pack it remains the same throughout a run.

I'm glad you corrected me. I didn't know Novak had anything but the large older boosters.

I know this is a 12th scale thread, but...do you have a 235mm conversion kit for the DB10R?

Got everything in the car....hooked up the battery...poof! Dead Tekin RS Pro

That was the first time in 20 years of racing RC cars that I wired the input leads backwards. Hopefully Elite has a Tekin or LRP speedo or I'll have to drive to Orlando and hit up Superior Wednesday

I did in a RS pro once by soldering the cap backwards at 6:00 in the morning getting ready for the races. We all have our incompetent moments. I watched the wires melt like a firecracker fuse when I hooked up the battery.

Cutting the prototype. I did a ton of testing before my son went into the hospital. This is the final changes i am testing from where i left off. Keep in mind, im not doing the typical sending drawings off to china for production. We make the car in house so turn around on the cars once they go into production will be quick. Im looking to be ready for release end of january to beginning of february.

Very cool. Is it similar to the stuff we saw before your son went into the hospital? That was looking really good
