Love the concealed sticker

Plenty glue there holding your cells together, what kind of glue is it? I know some people use hot melt glue but that kinda does what it says, melts when it gets hot such as when the cells are used

Seen there are no holes for the battery strap posts, and on the PAL chassis the extra cut outs limit options but I think I may be able to work something out for the Xenon version.... just better be VERY careful with the drill...

Oh and Dave, Just in case, could you get me a roll of nice strapping tape

herm.......its good ole shoo gooo glue alot of racers use it here in the states for battery packs

Ah, the famous shoo glue, something you'll find hard to get in the UK, unless we have a different name for it. I think are shoe's are just a bit more sturdy though

Thumbs up Outstanding ! ! !

I think this is the correct top ten results
Top Ten (A main)

Pos.------Driver----------------Chassis
1.---Masami Hirosaka---------Yokomo
2.---Daisuke Yoshioka-------HPI
3.---Kazuyoshi Fujita----------Barracuda
4.---Shinnosuke Adachi-------Yokomo
5.---Kazuo Muramatsu---------Tamiya
6.---Atsushi Hara-------------HPI
7.---Hideo Kitazawa----------Barracuda
8.---Andreas Myrberg----------X-Ray
9.---Masayuki Murai----------HPI
10.--Yosinari Maeda---------HPI

This will be one heck of a triple A final.

oooh, thanks for the List RBF
great to see a Cuda in the top three, more Cuda's than Tamiya's or X-rays in the top ten is interesting. Looks like HPI have chucked a load of drivers at the event to get the new car some recognision before it's release nice to see the Yoke and Cuda are giving the new boy a run for it's money

Would love to see some video's of the event, any idea where there may be some?

Shoe Goo is the stuff to use to hold the cells together, takes a while to cure, so if you dont get the cells perfectly lined up, you have some time to get them right

Wow, that's crazy, he's definately the underdog, but doing awesome at that event

Something tells me you're right about having sponsors after this event though...
