If you look carefully you can see a D and an L on the side of the pic as well as Donny Lia etched into the motor plate. FYI. I dunno what receiver pack he was running though.

The spektrum2 receiver is a giveaway. The website must just be labled wrong. Regardless, I don't know what receiver it is.

Donny's rx pack was most likely a Micro-t Losi pack...

Joel had a great run at Cleveland and better yet drove very cleanly in tight confines.

Joel - do you remember the tire sizes you were running? and what esc and motor where u running?

1.70/1.63 Tires. Tekin RS with a duo. 72/45 no timing in can. 20 boost/20 turbo. Looking back I don't think I hit gearing quite as well as I did car setup. They were carrying more timing and gear.

You drove great all weekend, and your car was plenty fast.... It was great battling it out with you in the Main.

Who's "they"? I was running more gear, but less timing and boost. Car seemed to carry the laptimes deeper into the run that way. I realized on the way home that I missed my gear by a tooth in the main, DOH! Changed rears and didn't remember to gear down.
