I also run the ching chong lipos. I like it. But when I buy more I will be buying good ones like SMC or even the Dynamite 2s 6000mah for 60 bucks.
I must be thinking of the wrong guy. The only ones I know by name are Skip and Kevin (whom I've known for like 15 years).

Seriously though, other hobby shops around the country carry those Chinese batteries and sell them for a bit more than what the websites do. If Kevin or Filo would become a distributor, they'd make a killing.

Yep, I'm all packed up. Finished the truck up at midnight last night. It's severely undergeared at the moment... I'm hoping to pick up a larger pinion or a smaller spur tonight before I head out. We'll see how that goes. Either way, I'll be there, weather is looking awesome and I can't wait to turn some laps with this truck.

... I think you're thinking of me. I'm the only one at HobbyTown running a Tekin system and I do like expensive stuff. I also know not everyone can afford that. I try to suggest something appropriate. Though admittedly, Shannon, I'm not sure I've dealt with you too much. Maybe once or twice. I don't really have a rebuttal for your comments, but generally I try to help everyone regardless of their budget.

Skip is Tony.

Cool. I'm pretty sure my slash motor is going to be done tonight probly after one qualifier. Its getting real slow. So if it does you can use my 23t pinion since thats the only one I have now LOL. I don't know if thats too big for what your running or not.

Too small actually, hah. I've got a 23 on there now (though the calculator still says I'll be cooking along at 25). I figurd out I needed a 31 with the spur I have on there, but I know the motor plate won't allow for it. Going to hit the HT after work before I head up and get the biggest pinion that will fit with the current spur. I have a smaller one on the way as well so I can use normal size pinions again. Stupid proprietary spur. I called around and no one had one on this side of town.

I'll also warn you that the diff is really tight... it's the only way I could get it and still have the diff in one piece... The diff screw was a little too short. Be ready for some push.

Matt, when does everything start? I'm trying to time it so Dylan can try my new truck and get a practice pack in myself. For some reason, 7 is ringing in my head.

Yes, qualifying starts at 7. I'll be there at 4 or 430. So whenever.

Default spec sct

so what are the general rules for running spec sct?

is it any brand? rtr setups? what is the motor limit?

i am getting a well used slash, and want to get some new parts, but want to make sure i stay within the spec class. probably just getting a new motor and tires for now.... and maybe some big bore shocks down the road.
