Damn, I wonder why you had bad luck with those, from what I hear, the Acer set is pretty strong...

Randman,

I didn't know you were right up there with BK, and Toso and those guys. 7T is quite a bit of horsepower there...maybe I outta come check you out next Tuesday, you'll be there? A lot of times, I see guys throw in more horsepower than they can handle or even necessary for the track, but a 7T in a cuda, I gotta see that let me know if you'll be there, I'll make the trip, and you know if I like what I see...I can always make room on the cuda team

I havent raced against those guys in about 3 years, and I was running offroad at MnM raceway more than anything then. On a good day, I was able to keep on the lead lap... I'll be running BL with Dave next week, trying to get this BL stuff figured out, the understeer is horrible, but I may have a setup that will put it on the right track. I was about 2/10ths off Dave's fast lap yesterday, hopefully when I get the car dialed in, and get a little more consistant with the BL, I'll be able to compete a little more

Dave,

I check it everyday, I have to, it's my business. I hope you're not referring to PM, because I turned that off on R/C Tech. But if it's email, I haven't seen anything from you as of lately, other than those batteries.
