Don't wait till the last minute to check them out. Cycle them a couple of times and then balance, keep an eye on each cell voltage. If they cycle good they will be fine.

Dropping genny off today at the track and I'll be there tomorrow.

I will be working on things that need to be done:
timing wire
staking down hose
putting up some 2x4s on the stand for a shade tarp (anyone got a 16x16 tarp?) if it's not windy on Sunday

I was thinking of cleaning out pit rows rocks, but maybe it'll keep guys slow...ha!

Jon, I would fill in the divits in the corners before I cleaned up rocks in the pit lane. I will probably be working on divits friday after work, if you haven't.

So, I quess Luke will be racing himself in the truggy class. If you can only run 2 classes most everyone else will be running buggy and sct.

Really? I'd figure you, Kenji and Nik and two other guys that were there last week with truggy's...

I would be in with the truggy, but mine just got put in the mail today and I don't have the power plant yet...

I don't think we should stick to the rules that tight, but what may happen is that most guys will race then marshall, but if they do three they won't be able to marshall.

Kenji and Nick want to run 3 but since they can only run 2 it will be buggy and SCT because there are more people.

The 2 guys from last week can't get them started.

I'll probably run truggy with Luke, and just ask someone to top off and drop us for the start.

Tell Kenji and Nik to bring their truggies anyway. I think the truggy race will be the best...(cuz I'm not in it) {yeah I beat you all at that one}

Got a PM from KO Propo, about mounting the transponders on the edge, said it may block the signal.

Asked him what the radiation signal looks like, waiting for answer... I'm thinking most may come from the top that has the post, so if we flipped them over we'd get a better signal.....thoughts?

Anyone ask at the endurance race for more transponder crystals?

Run What You Brung! We will throw you in a class! Reverse is fine. This is suppose to be a fun race to get bugs worked out and to get the word out that we will start up a race schedule. This was not suppose to be an all out race with entry fees and prizes, unless I missed that part.

Ko Transponders have an antenna inside them, they are not like the AMB's that have to have the tip pointed up or down. Did you see the internals of the one that was fried?

Just got orders to Okinawa. Didn't think there was an RC scene there. Thought I would have to put my cars in storage or sell them. I guess I have to take them with me.
