Hey I use to live in VB... was there a contest or race held there recently. The whole time I was there about 2 years (from 2000-2002) I never saw one RC related event. There were plenlty of shops though. How the weather over there?

There is a lot of racing around here now:

Hobbytown VA Beach has a carpet track
Hobbytown Newport News has on road

Stream in Newport News has off road and a nice on road set up.

the Weather...Lots of rain today

Nice Setups there...

Here's an idea. How about gutting both the tekin and Pitbull and installing the innards on a single enclosure?

I also use the same chargers except my tekin is the BC112C and I just sold my Pitbull inorder to buy a CDC. I might try integrating a Tekin and a Victor one of these days

I'm working on a "Power Cube", it will have a flat top with a 120mm fan mounted towards the back to cool batteries and my TC3...GFX in the middle... power supply & 112a on the bottom. Tools will be mounted on either side. It will measure 10" x 10" x 10.5". My pit light will also fit on top saving more room. The 10" x 10.5" is a small foot print considering everything included. I have a VERY ROUGH model attached, once again it's a VERY ROUGH model the finished product will look better.

The GFX is set at a 10 deg angle so it easier to see. The charger leads have been moved up front.

lastplace,

those are some pretty cool enclosures...

Im looking to build one for my gfx's and my 25 amp ps...

i think it will be easier to carry around one box than 3 individual boxes...
