And I bet he was running a Kr, so it wouldn't be the batteries fault.

Doubt it was the KR either.........Blackstock didn't seem to have trouble with his.

As far as I could tell, all of the Reedy drivers were running Kr motors. I didn't see anything else on Mike Reedy's work bench. Chris was running an 8x2 according to his sponsor sheet.

FYI, all of the mains results are formatted and posted on R/C Tech:

Pictures still to come.

Thanks for the coverage ... however I have to say that a lot of us web surfers do not know these drivers and which cars are they actually driving.

Can someone enlighten us poor fellows

For example, what cars do the following drivers compete with:

- Mike Blackstock
- Paul Lemieux
- Bobby Flack
- Charlie Suangka
- Lee Passehl
- Wes Wood

Thanks anyway

I run KR's all the time and never have had trouble dumping. Don't blame the motor.

Wouldn't dumping have something to do with the charging, the throttle control, or maybe gearing? Anything could have happened to Chris...it's part of racing.

I'm not sure about those other guys but Mike Blackstock is 100% Associated.

Mike Blackstock: TC3 Reedy, Novak
Paul Lemiux- XXXS, Trinity, (LRP?)
Bobby Flack- XXXS, SMC/Fantom(?)
Charlie- Evo 3, Novak (he works for them, lol)

I dunno about the other two classes.

Lee was running a Surikarn Evo 3, and I know that Wes was also running a Tamiya, I only assume it was an Evo. I need to get my hands on the sponsor sheets to make sure.

Paulie is a Novak driver, not LRP.

I still say the Kr had something to do with it. Tuning them and gearing them exactly right is extremely finicky, and when you get it right they can be really fast, but whe you don't...That's just from my experience with them.
