Anyways, going back to the Novak race. P-Dub took some sweet pictures of some of the driver's cars posted on his website. What times were those pulling in Mod ? The track didn't look that big.

King of B Main. I heard from a reliable source in socal that told me your more like a C main driver at club level racing. All your trash talking on this site is starting to piss me off Bobby J or AKA Bitter. I know were cool, but I'm not the type of person to talk crap behind someone's back. And I never thought you were that way. Quite talking about you know who for now, and wait until you se him in person. Then tell him how you feel. That's the best way to straighten things out.

Forgot, The Customworks sprinters look very cool from what I seen in the mags. But to bad there is now one racing them in my area. Love to see a whole pack of them running around. Only thing better would be seeing Tony ripping around the dirts tracks in one of his 800 plus hp sprinters. Sprint car races have the biggest [email protected]$#$ of all racers.

The response of the spektrum is on top of the radio response.

Spektrum is 5.6 ms=.0056 sec
1/.0056=178 frames/sec
Old FM PPM=60 frames/sec
30 f/s= .0167 sec lag
HRS = 125 frames/sec; .0080 sec
HRS spektrum = 2 ms = .0020 ms

Futaba PPM + old spektrum = 1/(.0167+.0056) = 44.91 frames/sec
HRS + HRS Spektrum = 1/(.0080+.0020) = 100 frames/sec

30 frames/sec is full motion video; you can't see changes faster than this, and if you can't see it how are you going to react to it? The calculation show why there's the HRS spektrum and why it's not an issue. I run it in a Helios in the fastest response and have had no issues indoors where it glitched with crystal systems inexplicably last year

it's more about how the car reacts to our input, not the other way around.
