Bake at 90C over a mesquite fire for 18 - 24 hours, lather often with a vinegar based sauce to your liking (or dry rub and spray with water to keep moist), finish on a bed of cole slaw and beans on the side.


But really... Not sure many people bake their jacos.

Think you're mixing your Tacos and Jacos.

You will have tons of traction without bothering with tire warmers. The trick is being able to use it. By the second round of practice on Tuesday people will be traction rolling.

We provide tire sauce for you to sauce your tires with and this is the only tire sauce you can use. So you can leave yours at home and not have to worry about TSA sniffing, swabbing or dipping their fingers into your stuff.

Carry-on only. 2 batteries not in device.

3.6 volts per cell is safest charge (per NTSB testing).

You can have more than 2. Our batteries do NOT have more than 8 grams of lithium unless its larger than a 6500 4S pack. And then its still not quite there.

8 grams is 100mwh. If you look on any ROAR legal pack they have the mwh number on them for this purpose.

But YES you must carry them on now. No checked bags.

From what I understand, the 2 pack max only applies to batteries with more than 8grams of lithium.

While I do not have exact data on how much lithium typical 1S and 2S packs contain, I did find this formula on one of the airplane/heli sites. Based on this info, one could carry as many 1S or 2S packs in their carry-on baggage as they like.

Quote:
Another formula is the amount of lithium in the battery. You can have any number of batteries with 8 grams or less of lithium. The lithium content formula is:

Amp hour per cell x number of cells x .3 grams

so the 5S 5000 lipo would have 5 x 5 x .3 grams of lithium, or 7.5 grams of lithium in that battery. That meets the "small" lipo rule as well.

And you can have two batteries larger than 100 watt hours, with up to 25 grams of lithuim, or around three times the size of the 5S 5000 battery discussed above.
