What a lot of people have done (possibly you too Jim) is that you've bookmarked the old site (generally at the 2nd page with this link http://www.rc-mini.net/MiniWeb_Online/Main.html) and you're trying to use that link.
And the url for that doesnt lead anywhere any more. The dns settings have been changed and only point to the new site.
The reason you still get the old site sometimes is that it's still loaded in your cache from the last visit.

If you go direct to the domain bottom level http://www.rc-mini.net it will work

Is the quick release battery holder #53346 useful other than a quick release? Does it keep the battery in place better (stronger)?

I tried a few things, and couldn't figure it out, but it works now!

I had the same problem with my own website. I loaded it onto my webspace, and then couldn't find it.

I think maybe I shouldn't be allowed to touch computers.

Jim

STOCKER: I've found it useful in that it does seem to hold the battery in a little better.

It is stronger because when you get hit from the side it doesnt bulge out wards

For any Mini freaks in Orange or Los Angeles Counties, Beltran Indoor Raceway will be in full operation soon. The track itself is done, but they are working to finish the pit area. The surface is smooth asphalt and has very good grip. The track is available to run on and the hobby shop is open.

I just ran the track this morning and Jesse, the owner, couldn't have been more accommodating. There's a thread in the racing forum for the track if you need more info. I'd post a link, but my computer skills are like my driving skills. They both need help.

Here is the link to the thread:

Passed by the track last week and I agree, running the Mini should be awesome at Beltran's. So see you there with the Mini Grandpa....

Hey guys, it's time for my pointless question of the week. Before anyone decides to rip on me, no, I likely will not be performing the modifications I'm about to ask about. It's just curiosity.

Alrighty then...I've seen an occasional, vague reference to the practice of shimming the gears in an M chassis transmission. I'm not talking about the diff here, just the main drive gears. Does anyone have any thoughts on this? Is there any possible benefit from shimming straight cut gears with preset mesh? Are people really this obsessive? How would this sort of thing be done?

Seems to me like it would be a huge pain in the...posterior, seeing how you'd have to assemble and disassemble your car several times while working on it. It also seems to me that it probably wouldn't make any sort of difference.

And....GO!

Jim

MD,

The grip is meduim to high.

I ran an EP Touring car during my first visit and it was tight (IMO), but still a lot of fun! My Mini Cooper is just now ready to go and looking forward to running it there.
