I will let the owner start their own thread. But until then, here is a link containing information about the new track that is being built in Rogers Arkansas.

The track is fun! I ran barcodes, pink megabites, and city blocks during practice today. The barcodes and megabites worked well. Basically whatever you ran at the old Extreme RC will work here only better.

The track ran great! has a few bumps to smooth out but that's to be expected from the very first layout! I ran barcodes up front and M4 compound suburbs with closed cell inserts and I had great rear traction but was pushing the front end a good bit through the corners. will try trimming the tires a bit and running them again. also picking up a set up suburb fronts to try out, think that might be the combo for me. Anyways, great track guys yall did an awesome job getting it together for us so quickly! All we gotta do now is get that lap counting software working right and it will be awesome! We need more 2wd buggy racers up here! 2wd short course had a great turn out, along with 4x4. Lets get those buggies in there guys and gals!

Sorry I wasn't there to break any parts on your car Mike!

Also, I got my new 6500 SMC battery and realized my charger cant even charge it at 1C with AC power.

I'm going to find an old computer power supply but what dc chargers have you had good experience with?

Ha, I did manage to break the front bumper on the SC10 from lawn darting the triple.

Will your charger accept DC input?

Haven't found a truly bad charger. They all have their quirks though. My Thunder Power chargers are really sensitive to input voltage (at least when charging 3s), the buttons became hard to push on a Eflite "4 button" charger ( I killed it with too high input voltage, my fault), even my old Integy works fine after cycling the slide switches. Currently using a Hitec x2, really like it, but I occasionally get lost in the menus when doing things other than normal charging. Really like the touch screen buttons.

nice!

It will accept DC. I figured If I was going to make a power supply I should find a decent DC charger that also has a lipo storage discharge option. My current charger doesn't which can annoying at times.
