I have a set of NIP JACCS Accord decals. How much are people willing to pay for it?

I'm selling this somewhat odd-ball body also:

Now that the FF03 is going brushed I need some help here.
I have never run a brushed motor until recently. I can't find a very good ESC that will work with brushed motors. I currently am using a Tekin RS and well it has no brakes!
If I can't get a proper working ESC, I am done with this car.
My knowledge is of brushless systems only.
Please if you would respond with what ESC you all are using.
You guys who ran last Saturday at Cal raceway...What ESC are you all running?
Thanks in advance.

rtypec is right. you can't beat QC3's price right now, perfect for silver can!
Although your tekin rs should work also.

Rod, I lost the screw holding the C-hub, reason why the swing shaft kept on popping out. That's night racing for me. Steering rod did bent and have a big nick on my suspension arm. Good reason to check my suspension shaft if its still straight. Next move is to get rid of all my slop. See you Sat!

Now that TCS and the F'n race are over, is everyone planning on staying with silver cans or will there be a move to 21.5 or Cirtix or something?

I am trying to plan our FF03 class at CAM as several of us have them too and I want to stay on the same page.

Personally, I'd like to see a move to brushless but I'll go with the crowd so we can all race together. Maybe it would be smart to hold off on any changes until 2011 TCS rules come out.

How about tires? Leave it open for now?

Bodies? FF only or open because so many have the Porsche?

We'd like to get everyone up for this year's Big Fat Turkey Race! Mark your calendars October 15-16-17!
