Hey Tag,

Looking to update my charger to something new...which do you reccomend these days? I'm kinda leaning toward something that can charge multiple batteries at once. Running 2 to 3 classes where the overall driver count is low makes it hard to keep all the batteries charged in time. I would love to not have to lug around multiple chargers

Thanks
Burt

Hey Tag we had our ROAR Region 11 race this weekend in Seattle at Hangar 30 and I got my D3's just in time from you. I definatley found what I was lacking in sedan. I left my house at 2am Saturday morning to get up there at 7 for the doors to open. It was a thrash for our 2-1/2 hour practice before the quals start. After about two runs of practice in the sedan the locals were coming over to see what I was running because I was already a few tenths faster than what they were doing on there Wednesday night club race. I then sauced the tires up on the WGT and went out and made a few runs with it and noticed that I was turning lap times a few tenths faster than our local CRC factory driver so I was pretty stoked about that.

After the first Qual I was TQ in sedan and 2nd in WGT. In round two I held on to sedan and took over TQ in WGT by .5 of a second from Dave Ehrlich. In the third round I went from TQ to third in sedan and held on to TQ in WGT.

For the single mains I made it up to the lead after about a minute in sedan and never looked back. WGT i missed roll out and ended up second but I definatley had some horsepower ouf of them D3's.

Devin

For some reason I keep seeing orange and white labeled motors popping up at my track... hmm.

Looks like we are doing something right.

First run with the D3 was... AWESOME! With the same gearing as the duo 2 it ran about 30* cooler so I ended 3 teeth higher and it was still coming off under 120* in blinky 17.5.

Thumbs up

I raced my new Mugen MBX6 Eco 1/8th E-Buggy. I used your race packs and they did awesome. I qualified 3rd and finished 1st. We had 10 e-buggies total at a club race that was just thrown together. Since this was my first time driving 8th scale in like two years it felt good to shake the dust off with a win.
