Default And the results have been calculated!

Sorry for the delay. However I do have the votes calculated. One small changed has been made though, we have a top five list rather than an top ten.

So here it is;

TOP 5 MYTHS THAT SHOULD BE TESTED ON MYTHBUSTERS!

#5 = Holding races in BFE will grow our sport?

#4 = The "direct solder" method makes you faster than using a conector?

#3 = Placing an XRAY chassis in the coffin of a loved one, when they die, gaurantees they will go to heaven?

#2 = The TEKIN R1 is a real product?

#1 = Hara is actually a guy.

Maxing out your credit cards to go to that big race won't cause you to get divorced.

Or how about this one:

When a friend or loved one dies, if you bury an XRAY chassis with them in the coffin, that person is guaranteed to go to heaven.
Its been a while since we have visited this thread, so I thought I would give it a "BUMP".

Maybe its time to update the list!

2. LiPos are safer tha NiMH batteries.
3. Tamiya Minis are not for racing.

brushless racing is cheaper than brushed racing.
brushless will create a level playing field
lipo racing is cheaper and easier than nimh racing. and will create a level playing field

Here's one that might not get busted.

Trinity Pulse motors will end up out performing the Duo motors.

Ooh. Too soon? Too soon?
