Well I'm off to pick up Butter form the airport. I hope he's rerady for the cold weather up here. I'll be running EA batteries and donating the services of my TD45 so Butter and Mo can build all of the EA drivers some major ponies. Hopefully in a few days EA can boast about another championship.

Just an update. Butter and Dobbs are here in CT. Their filght arived on time and everything went smooth, well almost everything. Butter's luggage with his clothes got sent to another state. His gear arrived fine. I'm glad that I'm pitting far enough away from him so I wont have to deal with the smell . We spoke to Mo an our way to the hotel. He was about 4 hours away and should have arived around 3:00 Wensday morning. I'm about to head to the track so I will post an update for everyone when I get home from practice tonight. Man I love living 10 min. away from the host track .

Looks like you improved over the rounds anyway matt. Ill see if i can get entered for next year. First round of TORC isnt far off for me, and ive had no practice at all outside on a big track or on tarmac with the barracuda yet. And little with my xray.

I ran with DOTMAN in 19t last Sunday and yes... did use the 'F' brushes too for the first time... noticed a significant increase in powerband with the stock reedy springs(silver spec) bent at 180 degrees (produced more torque). I finished 1st and, Dotman in close 2nd in our main which would have put us in the top 5 in the 'A' easily. Unfortunately, lap traffic during qualifying killed our chances and we settled to play in the B. But all good, as we know these brushes are very capable!

Ive booked in for 11 rounds of TORC stock so i doubt i can afford it. Might try a few mid summer but buying tyres is going to be killer

Well, i'm really chuffed with my final results in the BIWS. 17th o/a (by literally a point from 18th! Both on 313, my best result was one place higher!)
My aim at the start of the champs were simple, make the b-final (achieved in the final round), and finish top 20 overall... also acheived, all in all very pleased.

Also, deffiently felt like i was improving too, hopefully over the next few weeks i'm gonna get some more practise in, and get even better. First up for me is the first ashby TORC round on the 17th april. I think i'll have my ROAR in for that

Colin, I'll get in contact with you when I get back home, I'll take some more brushes off you (both types, want to try out the slots again). You going to be going to maritime on a thursday at any point?
If so I'll catch you there. (fingers crossed I may even have my 12th by then )

Thanks to EA and Colin for providing the awesome motive power, bring on the outdoor season.

Later
Ed

I didn't know there was a bad batch....what was up with the brushes?

I might need to get some more brushes pretty soon to....haven't got any left (well just replaced the old ones in my stock motors so don't have any spare)

I will talk to you about that later.

edd

they changed the compound around snowbirds time
also to many racers are having very similier problems including me

to much silver has been put in
so no more F-lines till i am happy with them

the motors went like stink with the 767`s in in the first place ,EA will be going back to 767`s till the compound been sorted

this is very sensitive already some guys on racechat are slagging off the F-lines cos they don`t work & yet they have been notifyied of this problem, can`t bloody win

symptons are
1 run ,lots of sparks. serrations wear with in 20secs on a motor run in (ie;;lrp pulsar), just pants basically

i know the brushe`s work , so they are very near or did have it ,then lost it
hell Andy East was going to use then this weekend (bit dissapointed),
