Wow... What a fun day at Hobby Chamber. We got a lot of testing done and really found some good motor and chassie combos we are pleased with. There was some good runs being put down in practice.

My last practice was intence... I rolled out with Jeff Cufffs, Mark Smyka and Mark Strasnick, I was sick fast and needed to let the peak wear off,then fell into the 4 car draft. Man that was cool, so intence I pulled the car after 20 laps because I was shaking so much

Anyhow.. I will not be shipping any motors or brushes after monday due to we are leaving for the Nats. I will return to shipping all orders the following monday. Thanks All!

Default Broken and Smokin

Well guys today was the worst day of rc racing I have ever had. Yesterday I plugged my GFX in and it smoked. But I ran well and qualified 2nd and finished 2nd only 4 seconds behind Schreffler.

Today I didnt finish a race. In my first qualifier I got tboned by a backmarker and it pushed my cells together and they shorted. 1 battery pack Smoked, I mean it was dripping stuff out of all the cells. In my 2nd qualifier I was on 3rd qualifier pace and with 30 seconds left my wheel fell off. Dumb mistake but understandable becasue I dont run xray usually and forgot to check the wheel screw. That wont happen again. In my 3rd qualifier a cell shorted out on the battery holddown standoff. 2nd pack gone. Wost part of it all is they were my 2 best packs.

Even though I didnt finish a race I qualified last in the B, at the start I weaved my way into 2nd or 2rd before the finish of the 1st lap and got tboned in a turn and it broke my rear hub. In all of my rc races I have never didnt finish every race. So I got all my bad luck out of my system for next week. I had a real good car if I could of finished a race I would of been right in the mix. Oh well, next week really counts and Im up to the challange.

Hey Jon W. please give me a call or pm. I need to find out what the situation is for this week and I could use some new packs considering my 2 best went the way of smoke today.

Larry - You did have rough luck with the races, but I hope you had some fun in the back room with us all. I didn't do that great either in touring. The eXpress cells and Tag motors did not let me down, that's for sure and I'm really happy with the way they performed. I on the other hand was a little careful driving my RDX because in practice and the first qual I caught the pipe and broke an arm. 2nd qual I just wanted to make laps and not get a DNF so I would place well for the 3rd qual shuffle. I ran safe in the middle of the track and didn't take many chances so I was pretty far off of TQ place. If I pushed the car, it did what I want so i can only expect I'll get faster with the RDX with more tracktime.

1/12th scale I took 3rd in the A main. My BMI 1/12th is really great and in the main I was still on the lead lap after 8 minutes. I'm very happy with the BMI and I was only running a 19 turn in open mod. Some guys were putting down some massive power, but I kept up with them

Good luck in the nats guys. Bring home the trophies!

John
