Speedie - Just working on the TC now.... Not sure of Kyosho's release...

Mike - I saw the mail... Haven't had time to sort through everything totally. I'll get back to you soon.

Greg - Thanks!!

Matt - Cut about 3mm off the suspension arm where the shock mounts - this brings the bottom of the shock in to reduce any clearance problems.

bender - Kyosho sent over a limited supply of TF-4 parts (about a 5-7 year old car) which Paul ran at the race. It wasn't bad but you could see the improvements that have been made in the TC's over the years that held the car back. Kyosho didn't send the TF-5 as they had already used up the majority of the parts when they used it in Japan - basically, they weren't making another batch of prototypes for us to run 1 race and then start over.... The car I ran/made was simply a Kyosho RRR gas car that I mounted a battery pack and motor into. Even though the result wasn't very good I was still happy with things as it really allowed me to learn a lot in a short amount of time.

Josh, what's the empty weight of your E-RRR, without all electronics. Or the racing readiness weight also be fine.

Why I asking this is because I thought about same idea of your E-RRR but didn't make it happen. Now I saw you made it, this bring my old idea back on the table (or, computer). Gotta get more info about such concept before I start doing it.

Hey Josh, congrats on your win at the Snowbirds! Do you have any plans for oval racers in the near future? Also, are you making any new 12th scale bodies?

Josh,
this may sound retarded, but your eRRR reminds me of the old FSR Bullet. Still, that may be the first time someone has converted a gas car to electric. Neat...

ttsso - I wouldn't recomend it as all the gas car parts are much too heavy for an electric TC.... It was at 51.3oz for the race but the chassis was extremely light - the spinning weight was brutal as 1 diff weighed more than 2 electric TC diffs....

Darryl - Soon....

Greg - I was today, will be tommorow too....

trackdesigner - We have the P-LMP 900 out now and that's it for the moment. Too many other projects to work on right now....

smyka - Thanks! Good running also!! I won't be at the Nats as that's when the lil one is due!! Maybe next year!! As far as the saying.... I've been soo good at keeping my mouth shut on the stand lately too....

hpipro321 - As RandyB said - I no longer race for Xray nor do I have any clue about their release dates or plans for their products. Sorry....
