Willy is the best. Plus its classic Tamiya with warm fuzzy memories for us all.

Hey Guys,

Just an update on a question I had posted earlier. I am getting some samples of some 5000mah VTA packs in the next week or so to test. If they are good then I'll be bringing them in and will have them at a great price for USVTA. These will be based on the same chemistry that is used in the big batteries so performance and longevity should be great. Not to mention that I'll have them at a great price too! And once they are on the way I'll offer a special on here for all the USVTA guys too.

If anyone has any questions you can PM me here or email me at TeamEAMotorsports@me.com

Willy is badd-azz... though I think for a laugh getting one of those "Jack in the Box" antennae balls would be kind of funny too.
