About one week if you ship to your downtown address.

Battery fits fine in the DB-01 the holddown pins will have to be backed out some.......doesn't fit the DF-03.

Jason did you have any clearance issues with the steering linkage from the servo?

Ken,

Sounds like you may be nearing the end of your DB01 build. Quick tip...trim your rear wing so it does not touch the rear shock tower, or make the mounting holes in the rear wing a little closer towards the leading edge so when you mount it up it'll sit farther back and not touch the rear tower.

I've read that the DB01's have an issue with breaking rear towers, and the cause has been tracked down to the rear wing putting a load on it since it rests directly on it.

I trimmed mine so it doesn't touch and never had a problem, never broke a tower.

Hey Gents. Have a good time with the track. I'll be with Josh, and will be back in April. Hopefully we can walk into a nice race schedule! Take care guys, and have fun.

Brian

Guess no one's got anything to say...

Think most of us had a good time on Sunday for a few hours. The guys from Schwab came down again and another guy with a truggy showed up, his dedicated wife with the fuel bottle...

who was the guy with the camera taking pics? need to get some of those...

See a lot of monster trucks coming out...may have to break out the E zilla and kick some nitro butt...

couple a notes:

be considerate when others are present...
  • drive ONLY on the track, not around other tracks or near parking area
  • drive from in between the 1/8 and 1/10 track, don't drive from the middle of the track
  • CHECK YOUR FREQUENCY BEFORE STARTING YOUR CAR!!!
  • If you stop your car on the track try to make sure it's not in the way of other cars driving
Thinking about roping off a warm up area for nitro cars between the dirt pile and the rock pile

I went out on Monday, between the rain showers. It was like running on asphalt it was so sticky. That was my first time running on it since complete. It felt goood! Nice track. The Dragons back will take a little getting use to.
