I had found the solution for that w/o buying anything, I was able to connect to the exhibit hall connection while down in the race area. In fact if I remember correctly I believe that is what I connected to from the very start.

It's a small investment, but you can buy WiFi cards for your laptops that go into the PCMCIA slot and have a jack for an external antenna. You can then setup an external antenna (or make one from a Pringles can) and get a massive boost in WiFi range. It's kind of a hassle, but a good deal cheaper than trying to get service through the cell phone companies. Before we had EVDO access in every major city, that was a "must have" setup for the road keyboard warrior.

If you like beer and find yourself near the Monte Carlo, wander inside and head toward the back until your find their brewery. Don't stay, it turns into a lame booty club at night, but order one of their beer footballs. It's a plastic football (full-size) that's clear, and they fill it with the beer they brew. You're guaranteed to have a great time walking around with one of those, and everybody will stop you and ask where you found them.

Did they charge for this service or were they providing it free?

Charlie, thanks for all the help at the Cactus this weekend. I know I probably said that a thousand times but you really helped us out with my son's motors. We were the ones pitting right next to you.

Oh, that might not be too bad then. I'd still like to have the 13.5 allowed.

Yeah, I have been running brushless lately and having fun with the 13.5. But going to this race you really will be setup if Brood is going to do that again. Motor with entry and getting it cut when you need it.

Hopefully they allow the Novak 4300(10.5) in 19T because that is all I have right now. But if they don't I could always dust off my lathe, find a couple speed controllers and buy a couple 19t motors.

From what I have seen the 4300(10.5) is close to a good 19T and this race will have people using their A-game 19T motor unlike a weekly club race. This ain't ROAR so let move into the future instead of staying in the past.

If there would be a 13.5 rubber tire class for Grand Masters weighing over 200 pounds and with glasses, I would enter.

Not too feasible? OK, how about a 13.5 rubber class for the masses then. This person is loving not having to cut motors. And I would have more time to spend $$$ in the casino and enjoy The Strip...

Thanks for your consideration.

If you are running the 4300 off a Novak GTB, it can be set for brushed motors. You just have to rewire a bit and change the profile. We had to do that for the Cactus Classic.
