My 10.5 with the timing at 40* was remarkably easy to drive, except at the very top end when the front tires turned into pizza cutters. Turn one was a bear!

so my team Orion Advantage touch pro charger DC/DC is dying any idea's that may help save it or look for for a new charger?
going to open it up tomorrow and check all the internals hoping its just a lose wire.

symptoms: starts a charge or discharge then shuts off and starts up on its own. with or without a battery plugged. all wires plugged in correctly. dc power supply stays running all the time.

Smile WCICS

So thinking about flying out for your WCICS race in November. Any help suggestions would be most appreciated. Correct me if I'm wrong but the airport appears to be about 40 min drive from the hanger so guessing a car rental is the best choice? Is the Best Western Plus Centre Inn the best, closest choice? Anyone willing to share/split a room? This all provided I get the time off but really want to try and make this race.

Thanks.

Yes the Airport is a 30-40 min drive depending on traffic. The Best Western Plus Centre Inn is the closest Best Western. The Hanger is less then 5mins away. How well it is I don't know ( I live here so I have never stayed in any hotels in Edmonton) I would ask on the WCICS thread, the out of town guys that have been here before would be better to answer that. If something comes up and you need a ride from the airport just let me know and I can get something arranged.

Hoping to have the dates by next week, I am aiming to have a couple of test and tune nights starting the second week of Sept, but I am awaiting confirmation from the hangar.
