Woot!

I remember doing that with my skidsteer as well when we rebuilt the latest layout. Sure was fun. As always I can't wait to see the end result.

wowza, is that the battery you guys are running?!

I was pretty much sold on 2s packs.. I'm barely good enough driver to keep a car pointed the right direction with 7.4, if I have to step up to 11.1 I'm gonna end up making some enemies i bet.

the car should be here this week though so I may make it down to Cam pretty soon.. I saw the layout last weekend and really wanna take my J82 around it.

Of course our track is supposed to be ready this weekend so we'll see.

No,we don't run any 11.1 .I run a b44 with 2/ 7.4/ 4400 mah lipos(max amps) ,and 6.5 novak its just right for that size track ,Any thing more would take some skill to keep it planted . Mine already spinns the darn tires off down the stright.. I was just pointing out a sick lipo that i saw that would fit your ride.. I was just giving you the web site "Max amps" So far these lipos have work flawless for me.

Default whew

whew, that's a load off.. i have two 4300mah 7.4 lipos already that i'm hoping will fit the stick pack ready sp.. Also, I have two more 5200mah 7.4's on the way that should definitely fit. I can't wait to see what this thing is capable of, ordering a tekin r1, still trying to decide on the motor.. not sure if I want a tekin redline 10.5 or possibly a speed passion.

I'll probably practice with this thing for a couple weeks before coming down there.. no sense in making a total fool out of myself

You won't be making a fool of yourself .The best practice is racing at a club level it pushes your skills higher. And what ever help you need myself and any of the other mod guys will help out .

Agreed. Don't NOT show up because you are afraid you may make mistakes, crash, break etc. Plus practicing on a smaller track like Cam will be GREAT practice as your lines need to be SO much more precise, Cam is also electric and 10th friendly, you will competition.

Yeah I'll definitely show up.. could use some help tuning for SURE! My J82 is running pretty well right now, but has a pretty good push going and has a hard time turning in off-power. Going back out tomorrow afternoon to see if I can't dial it a bit more.. I love Elings Raceway so much my girlfriend is literally getting jealous.

Mike nice track
We are racing on Wednesday nights starting at 5:30 until dark (there are no lights). There are two more races scheduled and then once daylight savings is here it will be too dark.

As far a slash/ classes the only rule is that everyone and everything is welcome as long as it is electric.
