Caught a bucket full of dungy's and rock's a week ago. So good. Kings just wrapped up, Coho is heating up. So much water, so little time.

Cool, Josh is going to be there. I want some pointers so I can pull off that wheelie start.

I signed up and am looking forward to the Spec GT class.

Question:
I notice that the Novak esc/motor kit comes with a Tamiya connector; are we able to cut/rewire/resolder our own connector in or do we have to leave the kit intact? Does it make a difference if we are planning on buying the esc/motor kit afterwards?

Just wondering if we need to solder up a Tamiya battery adaptor before we arrive.

Thanks.

That's a great price....I have been looking and looking and the best I can come up with is around 400.00 a person round trip from the Chicago area.

do the lipo batteries have to have to be roar approved ? or can we use the peak performance or hobby people batteries that have no roar sticker on them?

I just found out that I will be able to take the time off of work, now to figure out which classes to run. It's really bad knowing that I have enough cars to enter all of them but since it will be my first I'll probably limit myself to two. I'm kind of leaning towards 17.5 12th scale and 13.5 WGT since those are the primary classes at the local track. Of course my 17.5 TC seems to run pretty good as well.....decisions decisions.

Shawn - I found round trip tickets out of Chicago for $225.00 per person. Check out the website mobissimo for plane tickets. Hope this helps.

Thanks - Brad

I believe that speed control is the VX and not the VTX.

I sent Scotty the updated list and I asked him to review it is posted. If there are no changes it will be posted asap because I know you are patiently waiting to see the list.

Did anyone start counting down the days yet?
