Even then I would not get it without a row of handouts which are about another $1000 because new people don't want to buy a $100 for the privilige of racing. But for the amb20 just servo tape a piece of lexan to the back of the seat with a hole in the lexan and drive! you will be timed perfectly. Thre was a guy in the UK that made personals for the amb20 that was amazing. Just plug it into the receiver and tell it what # you wanted on the led. I think he was involved in some patent problems and had to stop making them.


Yes, this is the problem we to have had since day one, transponders". No one wants to toss out 100.00 dollars for a transponder. This is why we do what we do and how we run our races in such a cheap fashion with out them. We tried to inforce transponders, but it was just to hard as we started seeing a HUGE decline of fellow racers and more of a increase in spectators who use to race...... CRAZY! But., I personally get it as for cost and production of products and track items needed for rc racing.

Also MXRich? We got in the new offset tires and rim for the karts. Way cool and excellent feel. Very shift gokart feeling in my opinion

I think MX was talking about amb20 transponders and using what he has with the karts to. I may be wrong for a change

LOL! LOL! Only pill I take now is an asprin for all this nasty [email protected] that blew into my FN parking lot this morning. Its a mess, trash, mud, rocks that came from somewhere? and two cats that suddenly appeared from nowhere who are now meowing for food at my back door! I think some of my staff must be feeding them. They do know how to get ones attention at the back door by meowing continously......

How did you guys come out last night with the storm. Visited the track yet?

I mentioned it only, as I was reading some of the other postings and read where driver stands were damaged and washouts had occured. In one case in the south, a tunnel had formed under the track area due to forced flood water had washed it out. I didn't remember nor seen how water ran on or around your track.

You and I were speaking of rubber caps? Heres an example of my personal cap tires. Of course, traditional innertube style like most of us use on our karts for racing certain surfaces.
To make? Just cut the tubes, break out some good tire glue and allow to set over a period of 4 days. Tru if need be.
Do I have any tips? sure, be sure to allow the rubber to overlap the foam tire sides to prevent loosening or chunking. Once on? they should last for a full season if not longer of hard racing!
If traction starts to become an issue, use sandpaper on the surface of the rubber and their good as new once more.

Its amazing how simple actually works and holds up.

However, we'lll chat with him and see what we can work out once we start installing some tires and rims on our new modified karts that leave the shop.
