Haven't talked to you in a long time! Congrats on the baby! I was busy getting my wedding arrangements in Taiwan together. You know how the Chinese style wedding is...
Had the wedding on 10/10...so yes...I"m a married man now.
Race Report: I attended the ROAR Region 12 regionals 2 weeks ago right after my honeymoon and had a great run. I put a 12th scale together with a stock motor and some Fuku 1.164 cells together just a couple of days before the race, and dove in. I've never driven a 12th scale before, and was so amazed on the handling. I slept late on the first day of qualifiers, and did not practice. I put the car down on the track for the first time and won my first heat.
On the 4th and last qualifier, I missed TQ by 1 second. That was good enough to put me 3rd on the grid of A-Main. I drove well on in the main, and ended up 2nd and 1 sec off the leader. You won't beleive it, but I was using only 1.165 Fuku packs, while everyone else was using 1.78 and up. I couldn't believe how much power my Fuku packs gave me. Now this is in Stock racing, where power is what you want.
So Dan...I need to get some higher power packs so I can take home the winner trophy next time.
