Don't know about track jerk but you are an all around jerk if you sell the same engines for double the price to newbs.

Kinda like I used to do with my buggy. Our local track used to make us put numbers on them. I'd always put one on the bottom so they could tell who it was who was upside down.

HOWEVER... writing "HELP ME PLEASE!" and "THIS SIDE DOWN" didn't work too well. They'd pick up the car, and stop to read it.

Marshall might think twice about it when you Punch IT WOT and the car tries to Jump out of his hands.

Wouldn't the lack of an engine sticking out the top and a pipe throwing smoke and burning your hand be enough of an indication?

You might be a track jerk if you are standing in the wrong spot and a fellow driver runs his Hot Bodies D8 into your leg at 3/4 from WOT.

Yes this was me and yes I now have a hair line fractured fibula. It hurts!!

Or you might be a track jerk if you hand me the empty fire extinguisher while my 8 2.0 E is on fire from a Losi LiPo that decided to go.

Yes these both happened to me last night. First my E catches fire, but only the LiPo and batt tray took the hit. Was able to plug up a new lipo and still run!! Probably cause it was a Castle ESC and not the Losi one. Then to top it off when the track is closing a fellow driver nailed me on his last lap after marshalling my own car.

Damn I love RC and Pain Killers!!

Ya the 2nd Cell dumped on the Losi (Hardcase) LiPo overheating it and lighting it up on the inside. The plastice burning sucked because of the smell, but it protected everything as far as ESC, Motor, Servo and RX.

I learned the hardway not to try and salvage a battery that had one cell drop below 3.2v even if it took a good charge and ballanced out fine. You just never know, and that 50/50 isn't worth it, and it only dropped to 2.93, and it was the first time it ever dropped that low.

Ya and the guy nailed me right above my ankle didn't think it was that bad last night, but this morning was a different story.
