Something I learned through work is if you have the availability to do it ship from work. The shipping charge for business to business is cheaper then business to residence. Plus if you can ship through your companies account and they do a lot of UPS business, you may be able to ship it cheaper then if you went straight to UPS. Just another tip of advice.

we will see who is slower in about 11 days, you think anyone 'not' dressed in a tri-color fade looks funny, the only insurance 'you' should be worried about is spare parts for your destructo run, and I do have a chance at finishing better than last. My mommy told me so.

Oh, 4' is great, all I've got is a little charger and a light. :-)

How about power strips and extension cords? Any other secondary stuff a noob might forget?

The potential to sit here and make a noob list for Mike including velcro shoe's since he'll have to dress himself, is just too much.

Power strip isn't a bad idea, 'the strip' is a much better one....

It would not be a bad idea to bring a powerstrip and cord. If you don't feel like bringing one, there is a Walmart and a Home depot in Vegas too.

As we all know the Hot topic for discussion at the IIC this year is to heat or not to heat the Lipoís

Some people say itís simple just let us heat them well itís not that simple, right now our hobby is in the middle of one of itís biggest technology changes that itís seen in the last 15 if not 20 years, in the last 3 years we have been introduced to brushless motor technology, and in the last year lipo batteries are making there way into the race scene

The technology is moving so fast itís hard to keep up and much harder to up date and enforce the new rules that need to be implemented for all the new products that come out almost every month.

I have learned in the last five years that making a rash decision is fatal especially when it comes to teching any big event, so things need to be thought trough before making a decision.

Anyone that has participated in the IIC in the last three years knows we try are hardest to make it fair and equal for you the racers and also the manufacturers who support this event.

With that said this year the IIC will allow the warming of lipoís with a heating pad type device or equal too.

The max temp for the Lipoís will be 110 degreeís this temp will be checked in pre tech

The max voltage will still be 8.44 volts that will also be checked in the pre tech area

It is still up to you guys to make the right decision when charging and discharging this new technology. one extra tenth of a volt will not win the IIC but one fire might end it

see you guys in a week
JT
