Randy,

We'll join you to change to CGM very soon. However, the one in the market are "direct imported" from Japan. We are waiting for one coming through distributor. But only available in Feb.

Will you run your CGM on carpet or asphalt ?

Anthony
Hey Anthony, how are you doing?

I am planning on running the CGM mostly on asphault, but will have a carpet car as well. I am going to mill off some of the bracing on the asphault car to get some flex out of it.

I havent seen a BL motor on one, but I've seen some very fast regular motors.

This is the reason why I can't make the decisiion to go for MiniT or MiniZ monster. It seems that Mini T is really fast and fit for outdoor and MiniZ monster fits to indoor run.

Dan didn't sound like he wanted to tackle the small cells just yet, but I think it would be a very good idea for him to get some new customers.

Just use half throttle when you cant open it up all the way.

some GP racers really want to see a solution about receiver pack draining on digital servos. a high cap and powerful pack could be one of the solution.

i do think 1/18 is an embarassing scale for outdoor. it is sad to see expensive 1/18 toy running at the street instead. i have an HPI mini onroad with full mod but i dont have a chance to run it yet. it is not on my bookshelf !

Yes, I am fine ? Will you go to join snowbird race ??

I have the same concern for CGM as the chassis may be too rigid (as Chris mentioned before) and we need to do some modification before it runs on asphalt.

I dont know if there is very much he can do to a small cell, he should just assemble some rx packs with high capacity cells and sell them as is.

I wont be at Snowbirds, I really wanted to, but Dan didn't hype me up on it until it was too late to sign up.

I run a very ridgid Rayspeed chassis with center brace and double upper deck. I ran it 2 weeks ago on a very low grip surface, and was still able to pull a win in pro stock, I think it is setup more than chassis that matters, but it will make it easier if it has some flex.
