Not my best run but still managed a 3rd at round 7 of GRRS at HCR in 2wd Mod! Podium pic up when I get it! I also placed 3rd in the B-Main in Intermediate 1/8 buggy.

Gonna be jumping on some fresh new packs and some Savox pretty soon

Any thoughts of a receiver pack?

Last weekend:
Attended the LCJ Hobby World Indepence Day Trophy Race in Pekin, Il. Speedzone USA lipo's powered to a Tq and win in 2whl open sc(with a 17.5), 4th place 2whl open buggy(with a 17.5), and 3rd in 4x4 sct open.

Also powered my sons Thomas to TQ and 3rd and Stephen to a main win in Rookie. Was their first time there also!

This weekend we went to Summit Raceway in Fort Wayne, In. Speedzone powered to a 3rd in 2whl open buggy then a Tq and 2nd in 4x4 sc. Speedzone needs a lipo for a m11x!!! Had a 12 second lead when my radio battery went dead. I had another battery in my pocket that I had already changed and put it back in to finish 2nd.

My son Thomas ran 2 whl open sc with a 17.5 and pulled a 4th place in main with speedzone lipo's.
This was our first time there and meet some great people!

Not sure where we'll be runnin next weekend but I'm sure we'll have no power issue's with Speedzone inside!!!

THANKS GAVIN!!!!!

Thanks Gavin, I really wish i would have done better.. i actually borrowed a 4x4 for sunday i built a brand new ae sc104x4 (it was pre built just tossed all my gear in it) and broke it in saturday night at the hotel! lol.

the TQ racing truck proved to be GREAT! the more i drove it the more it came in on the track run time was cut short in the b main as i could not make it through traffic to the front, Honestly ive seen cleaner racing on a novice class.

Again Gavin, Thanks for the support this year. ill be making another order for some more packs soon!

Any news if the Saddle packs are going to be roar? going to have a saddle pack car for nats and would like to know.

Hey Gavin, I got my new single cell pack in on saturday when i got back in town off of vacation, I got to run it in both 13.5 12th, and mod 12th, worked great in both, just fell of a good bit towards the end of an 8 minute practice run with 4.5 boosted. i must say, though, I was very impressed with the overall performance of the pack, My 2 cells are still working great! Cant wait till the 6200 singles are roar approved, im thinkin full 8 minute mod run with no fall off Good luck to all the speedzone drivers this weekend at any upcoming events whether club or larger, See ya! -Randy Banks

Hello Gavin,

I finally raced for the first time in quite some time with a whole bunch of new gear. The new Touring car was really good and your Speedzone lipo worked flawlessly and provided plenty of power. My best laptime was only two tenths off of the fastest laptime of the winner and this was on my car's first run.

I do have a question for you though, I am using a brand new charger (LRP Touch) and I don't know which balance device to buy for it, what type of balance plug is on your 5700 50c 2s lipos? What is it called?

Thanks Gavin,
Steve Curry

the balance plugs on all speedzone packs are typical jst-xh

i dont know why that is so expensive, but at least you know it fits your charger and WILL work.
