Won't happen. If someone drops out now, not only will they not get their money back, but their spot in the class they are in goes to the first person in line on the waiting list. Next time, use Next Day Air to send in your entry.

Kinetix is Ron Atomic the Xray factory driver. Ron is a personal friend of mine and he has good stuff. I've run his batteries a number of times and I stil have a few. To be honest, with the new GP3300's having the good numbers that they have, you almost can't go wrong. Those batteries are practially bullet-proof. When you can run a flawless race and set your car up to run within a tenth or two of record lap time, just find someone you like and buy their batteries. Wen you get to the point of being able to win a national race, THEN worry about getting the best of the best batteries. You'll save yourself a lot of time and money in the long run.

Couldn't have said it better myself.

Of course, I'm still going to look for the best matched packs I can find!

The fastest batts don't always equal the best lap times, but it sure is nice to know that your car has as much power as you could find. I purchase my batteries from HobbyPeople, it only makes sense to me.

Everytime I race (20 minutes/4, five minute runs) I spend approx 45-1hr at the parts counter, so when I go to Hobbypeople I just pick up 4 packs of front arms, 2 spur gears, a few sets of Sorex 36r's and a new battery pack to help me get into the wall a little faster than the time before, no shipping and handling for me, that is what the turnmarshalls are for! (lol)

This Reedy race is coming way to fast, I need about another 6 months of additional practice to get out of the J main, with Frank McKinney.
