He is not that heavy really. Just looks that way the way he is laying. He loves lyin in the sun but if I would have had a pic with his eyes open you could have seen he is not a full Tabby. He is a Silver Tabby Siamese mix, so he is unique in that he has the Siamese trait of blue eyes. He is a thicker build compared to our Sealpoint Siamese we have but not big like a full tabby.

Hopefully you can either make it to Memphis and race with the MSRA or I hope hope to make it to Nashville to run some carpet this year. Good Luck.

Yeah our two guys are shelter cats, so we really don't know how old they are.

BURRRRN!!!

I think with the orion pack, and with the help of ROAR Li-Po will catch on......No need for battery matchers or zapers = less cost for racing

Guys guys guys....

Listen, people will figure out how to match and zap lipo packs....just watch. One company is already out there claiming they are selling a zapped matched pack. If Lipo ever becomes the standard, the pros will end up using matched and zapped packs, cause battery nerds like Danny at SMC will figure out a way to extract just an extra ounce of juice from them and all of us will buy them.....just how RC works...

The bad news right now is that Lipo may never get a chance. IFMAR had a meeting at worlds and many many people were pushing for a new 4 cell touring car class (which will more than likely carry over to offroad). If this happens (which there seems to be a lot of power behind it), LIPO will have no place, as I don't care HOW great a Lipo cell claims to be, at 3.7 volts, it will NEVER keep up with a 4.8 volt pack, regardless of weight or MAH, especially since the NiMH MAH ratings are so high now. And the manufactures won't make another cell, as regardless of how BIG you think RC is.....our batteries are stolen technology....it's ALL meant for other industries and just adapted to work in our little hobby. The companies are not gonna invest the massive amount of money it would take to make a battery that will work for our small market.....you're dillusional if you think they will.

Pray IFMAR and the sub orginizations like ROAR, EFRA, etc don't pass such a stupid rule.....

Later EddieO

With you on that one Edio
Surely the point of racing is,
Going as fast as pos, but in control, why limit the speed? now where at a point where our hobby is very competetive in all classes, depending on the ability of everyones capability's. I to hope this stupid rule don't go through, or all oranisations will jump on the bandwagon
Cheers Malc TCCFM

If IFMAR and the other Blocks pass a 4-Cell rule, That will KILL Electric R/C racing.

WHY you ask,

1- 4 cell Off-road will be limited to jump size and such. So must will just goto nitro to get the speed and Jump fix they need. All the off road tracks will have just little single "bumps". The days of HUGE triples and table tops will be gone.

2- 4cell 4wd TCs SUCK! We had a local guy running 4-cell 19t Brushless with us in a 6-cell stk. class the car was about a half a sec. a lap off. Now think about how far off it would have been with a stk motor.

3- If 1/10th scale goes to 4 cell where will 1/12th go....2 cell???

IFMAR,ROAR and the other blocks are only thinking about the "MOD" forms of racing and not the "MASSES" that run stk and 19t.

IF they were worried about the cars being so "FAST" why not just go back to a motor limit. But this time do maybe an 8turn limit instead of the 10turn as before.

But as Eddie stated maybe they will take a look at other options on this one....
