thanks to everyone for coming out. We had 58 entries. It's too bad we couldn't get through all the mains, but that was some wicked wind. Shortly after most people had left it really rained hard too.

Remember, we race on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month, with the 4th being a points race.

Start reading the 1/8 conversion thread. You'll get all the help you'll ever need with some of the problems you were having. Mine started to do the flips in the mains, but it was because of the plastic skid plate digging into the ground.


It is off now. I think it's easier to just buy a new chassis plate.

It looks like you found the thread. It's hard to miss with 7500s post in a year. Did you have a running fan on your ESC?
