That's cause I left early. No comment about my comrade.

I think the 10.5 is great, is definitely a faster setup. But, justin knows that i didn't buy it for an unfair advantage, but rather to stop cutting motors. The 10.5 definitely requires a few tweaks to setup. But, I got no problem running 19 turn.

Chris: How are my tires goin?

Pink taper pins with different pin lengths. Nearly bald when tracks is fresh and probably half tread as qualify goes. Maybe a new set just in case... All with Trinity bomb1 grey foam. Some use clay compound panther switches as well. Worn pink front ribs for truck and 2whl and pink taper 4whl fronts.

It's great to hear lipos are accepted.

Do they have to be ROAR approved hard shell packs, or are regular packs OK?
