jkerr0043 - congratulations on joining the team!

was it you that runs the BMI Chassis? If so can you PM me on what you think of it...I've been running a TC3 but would like to experiment with another chassis.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

I'll be running stock TC at AJ's Raceway in DeKalb, IL this weekend. This past week I met of few racers from that track at my local track running Fukuyama cells in their 12th scales...glad to see you all were happy with the cells.

see everyone at the track

Thanks Nexus. No I'm a Losi guy. I think you're talking about Mark Barden (mb racer). He should be able to help you out.

Thanks. The Tamiya is on order right now. Should be here tomorrow. I'm planning on running in the Reedy race again and I want to try and get some track time on the Tamiya track. If you have a Tamiya car, the track is open for practice for free on Saturdays. It's a little bit of a tricky track. It's easy to run on, hard to be fast on. The more track time I can get on it, the better. I was not real happy with my results last year and am hoping to improve on that (if I can get in that is)

One more question: Did the "shorty" cells gain as much as the other thread said they would? For some reason, the other thread said that they gained over 150 seconds to run time , and 1.16s were more powerful than the non-shorty 1.18s .

Is this information valid?

That information is misleading. The cells do not gain 150 seconds of runtime. They CHARGE for an additional 150 seconds, not discharge @30 amps for 150 seconds. So if you charge a pack say it takes 35 minutes , the second time you charge your pack at the same amperage/peak detect it will take 37 min 30 seconds. That leads to a little more MAh but not 1500 MAh if it was 30 amps discharge. Hope this makes more sense and clears things up. Hopefully I'm interperating this correctly. Cells can not gain 150 seconds of runtime just for the hell of it.

Default Official Drivers Update

Hey guys,

Its been awhile and I apologize to those that have pm me or emailed me as I've been busy with unrelated work in the last couple of months. Now that I'm back in the states, I thought I'd contribute as little as I can so I can continue my vacation. LOL.. Boy! it looks like its been a long time since I've left for Japan but then, mine how we've grown. I know Dan is doing a great job and will continue to give my big brother all the support he needs whenever he needs it. Just an update of who's who in our team of drivers if I may. It looks like we are growing everyday of the week and our drivers have both taken the tracks and the heart of racers.

USA:
Robert Love
Chris Tosolini
Mo Denton
Matt Howard
Andrew Ellis
Jason Ertrachter
Howard Hudson
Randy Caster
Dave Berger
Jon Kerr
Anthony Isla
Curtis May
John Fontaine
James Arluck



Netherlands:
Peter Creemer

Asia:
Alan Yau
To Chi Kai
Dereck Hung
Joe Lo

So far, this is the list. I may have missed one of two. Please let me know. Happy Racing!

Jimmy
