Let me know how you like it. I keep hearing that they are slow in reception and make the cars react slower than a normal radio setup. Be interested the hear what you have to say. I see alot of Pro removing them from their cars in favor of their standard setup.

I'm doing great. At this time I sold all my touring stuff and have been racing gas offroad at this time. Might buy another touring car down the road but right now non of the cars really excite me so if something comes out I like then I might buy one. Offroad has been fun for me and really cheap plus the track is 15 minutes from my house.

Still really like touring cars though. I also keep up with what is going on.

Brian - I have nothing but good things to say about the spectrum.. NO glitching, EVER (even touching metal to metal doesn't cause it to glitch) I can finally turn my radio on in the pits, don't have to worry about looking for a frequency clip to practice, no more broken crystals, 8" transceiver antenna length so no more sticking out of the car (Can be cut to 3.6" if necessary) and the response (latency) is super quick. Binding was simple and works every time.

The slow reaction is a thing of the past. Spectrum engineers did see this with the old M8 DSM systems, but all new stuff going out is tested first and has all new programming and the latency is faster than any crystal system out there. 5.6ms for spectrum compared to 12 for M8. It's faster than my Futaba HRS system and I can see it. Using a S9451 dig servo in my xray and it's very fast. I track tested the system last night had not one issue, where I was getting interference the last few weeks. Hope this helps!

Hope we get to see you sometime this summer at races.

BTW - You have a PM

That sounds awesome John, good to see that they worked all the bugs out of the M8 system before I went and bought one. I gotta get rid of all my novak crystaless stuff and get some DSM!

Hey, kids. Update:

1) Website is nearly completed. We're finishing up the e-commerce now and working on the photos of the inventory and such. I'm thinking that'll be completed within the next two weeks.

2) Monsters/ROARs/19Ts are all in stock. Contact Tag at jtag@tmxpress.net or PM him on RCTech for immediate shipment.

3) We've got plenty of Racer packs (1.175-1.179) ready for shipment. If you need any, give me a holla at 201-232-9006 or e-mail me at jwilliams@tmxpress.net

4) Same goes for Team packs (1.180+). Got plenty in stock--they're _exactly_ the same quality of packs that our team used at the Nats to secure several A-main and many, many B-main finishes as well, so be prepared for nasty HP.

5) We're working on GP 37s right now and we'll know next week which one our distributors will have them first.

6) We're working with Mike McMahon of McMoney Designs to design an advertisement which will be in Car Action in the comings months. I'll keep everyone updated.

7) Freddy, Tag and I will be meeting with the Jackson R/C board to discuss our upcoming race in June. It's going to be at least a 2 day event with all kinds of goodies. Be prepared for top-drawer, y'all.
