Did 21 liters cover the whole racing line? or did you need more? Maybe the dog was attracted to the grapes smell. I guess that's worse than ants

i recently got hold in my hot little hands one of your express stock motors. when i push the shaft in it seems a little tight. How do you break one of these motors in? the brushes are the F compund and the springs are red i think.. whatever is standard. Thanks.

DJB.... all motors come pre shimed with very little arm play, there should be a slight side to side lash. Motors are already broken in but after shipping or travel I would recomend just a drop of oil on each bushing and run motor for 1 minute at 2 volts. Than your ready to run.

Hope this helps

Hey all... Just a little FYI with all this carpet chat going on. We are planing a Winter Express North South Shot Out down here come Nats time as a Nats warm up type race and we plan on it being just as big as the spring race. Date TBA location will be Rosewood-Glen's Hobby near Goldsboro NC. Real nice indoor carpet. Let's see if those northern boys got anything for us southern fella's. Were looking to pull some great names to this event as like the last time. So if you feel you got something make plans to show or we'll know you scared!

Jon we want you most!

Cuff's Yea Yea you too

Very Cool Tag. I will see what happens. If we are going to the Birds then I won't be there but if the Birds is out who knows. I know that my lease is up on my apartment on March 31st and I am trying to buy a house. At any rate I know I will be moving then so I can't commit to anything just yet.

Hey, all. All packed and ready to go for Vegas...

If there are any pressing matters that need attention while I'm gone, you can contact Tag.



Wait...

If there are any pressing matters that need attention while I'm gone, you'll have to call me on my cell phone.

Anyway, the gang will all have returned by next Monday evening, and I'll be back in the office Tuesday AM.
