Yes, I still have it. I finally posted everything to the For Sale Forum and I've gotten a lot of interest, even someone from our 51st state Canada however I'd prefer to sell local. I'll bring everything Sunday for you to check out.

Had a great time last night. It was nice to have Ryan back for racing, would someone find him a good job around here so he can move back? Lol

With a sensorless system, especially with lower-quality batteries, it's very easy for the system to cog and "get confused" when you send your inputs to the vehicle.

That happened with my mmp4600 combo a couple of times. I had updated the software to the most recent version on the link(v1.31). Someone told me to update back to v1.26, and the issue stopped.

I also had a dead spot in the near rt side corner(from the drivers stand near Gary's pit) with my trx 2.4 radio and both my mmp and vxl setup. 2 other people with Spektrum's have said it also. Did not happen all the time to me, just the day of the benefit, and another day.

EDIT: 1 other time that happened with my mmp, my brakes were set too hot, the wheels would lock up, and the for/rev fail safe would kick in, and I would have to double pump the throttle to get it to go again.

Last Sunday we had 57 entries and the place was packed. Matt did an awesome job once again announcing and keeping the program running smooth.

Also don't forget to set your clocks 1hr ahead on Saturday night.

This may sound weird but you may be running the esc in reverse and when you want to go forward its actually thinking you want reverse with delay.

Check connections and recalibrate

I would love to reference them on the net instead of taking them off the board(with big andy's permission) to study my laps...

I learned the next morning on the toilet reading the hardcopy what my best line was with that particular setup was...

If you're around at the end of racing, we can always print you a spare copy as well for your own use. If not, just ask Tony or Colleen for the existing hard copy and I doubt they will give you any issues.

Also for those coming tomorrow, there will be a few new food options so bring a full wallet and an empty stomach!
