spektrum was fine....LOL

The DC Ti that I was running in the main had more rip than the other two 8x1 I was using. Gotta get the car use to having major horse power. The nats will be fun if we get the car set up properly but the Reedy race is looking awesome.

Andrew - bummer about the main, it was ugly for most everyone involved. Congrats on the TQ tho, your Xray T2 looked dialed.

Well, somebody had a radio that was dirty, next time we will run a different channel, hope that will help. Don't worry, we will have 7s!

Hmmmm...After that initial accident, Matt hit a couple more times where he was trying to turn left and the car would go hard right. Thought that was from glitching.

I agree with Pops the cause. There were three cars looking like they were suffering from the same issue. Think they all dropped out.

That was more than a glitch, Alex's radio had no control over the car.
Harsh, my attorneys (Dewey Cheatum and Howe) are working on the case now, for the emotional distress you caused Alex and myself watching you chase his car around. Not to mention the damage you did by putting your middle index finger in between the wheel and body. Every time I see a middle index finger, I need to take medication just to calm myself down.

Hey guys a little update for the nationals. We received the ROAR designed T2 (touring car) tech box and tech tools. Yes ROAR now has a fairly comprehesive set of tech tool that will be the norm for all future electric nationals. The bad news is we now have a tire width gauge. Yes a tire width gauge and we will be using it at the nationals. That means that almost every foam tire is wider that the allowed max of 28mm. That means you will have to narrow up your tires to pass the 28mm max width rule for foam tires. We tested, Jaco, BSR, Speedmine and TRC and all were to wide. Most measuring 28.5mm-28.9mm. The only wheel/tire combo we found that was legal width were the TRC black spoked wheels.
