You have to give props to Scotty for having the [email protected] to take a risk and put something like this together. The race being in LV is as much for the racers as for the spectators.

Nah...that was just my A.D.D. kicking in...lol!

Mi2EC details are officially coming out on our next Schumacher Newsletter at the end of September. PW, Teemu and Weylin along with a select few will have them at the IIC.

I am dying to spill the beans on it but the guy who signs my paychecks is telling me to wait for October 1st.

I just think nobody wants to run brushless yet.

I'm sitting trackside if anyone has any questions I will try and answer them.

I maintain an IRC server that is more than capable of sustaining any number of people you could send its way. I'd be glad to allow you guys to use it if you think IRC would be more conducive to what you're trying to do. I could also customize my java chat applet to have an R/C tech feel, if you wanted web control.

The layout is good. It has a nice flow to it. I was in race 11. The traction was not good. Can you say drift. The 19turn foam cars are looking pretty good. You can see the groove starting to form. 12mod is next.
