Default Scotty diode?

Was it beamed down from the Enterprise?

Sure have, I can't notice the difference with or without. I guess it'll increase the life of the brake fets. :P

In 19t touring, I stopped burning arms with two on. On Low bite bumpy asphalt, I seem to use the brakes a little more that normal and I was frying my comm and brushes every run. Now that 2 are on there, it lasts a few runs before needing to be cut. We gear our motors to the brink of explosion also. It's not fun if you aren't smelling smoke. No performance gain, but motor stays cooler and lasts longer if you abuse it like I do. Speedo stays cooler also.

Hey Tim,

Reilly bought the last Novak one that was at Larrys. All of the other LHS around here don't have it in stock. I ordered 2 of them through larrys and will put one of them on soon. I heard from a local sponsored driver that it helped out a lot in mod tc on his Q2.

The IS300 is a fun car to drive. My buddy Tony has one. It doesn't have the power of my M3, but it handles pretty darn good in the twisties.

That's good that Jason is doing well karting. Tell him I said "what's up", and i'll talk to you guys soon when carpet racing starts up.

Take care,

Tim
