Don't they run out of ideas???? The track only gets change once a month at where we run......its kinda fun towards the end of the month...because everyone is crazy fast.....thats when there is the biggest risk of bring "parts of the car home" rather than a complete car!!

Maybe you can ask them how the heck are you supposed to build Losi shocks to give rebound....that has always been one big mistery for me since the IWC days. I can build them smooth....non quishish.....I can even get them retract by themselves after you pull them out. But hell I have never managed to get the full length of the Losi shock to go back into the body and rebound out.

I have so much reservations on the Losi shocks that I am even considering buying some GPM shocks for my Losi Mini T!!!!!

after retiring from EP for a few months, I managed to recyle some packs tonight with the CDC 6.0b (6A charge, 20A discharge)

(1) some old matched SMH packs (Parasonics 3000)
average 6.1xx volt (3min 30sec), the best one is 6.4xx volt (4min ...)

(2) old Sanyo 3000HV (orion team match)
average 6.6xx volt (6 min)

(3) some old GP3300 (local match)
average 6.9xx volts (9min 20sec)

Time to throw some old batt away ...

Yes..........the best way to treat them is to replace the cells every few months. During the time you run them...rape them with 8.0A charge. Sell them S/H and recover the cost of the battery bars!!! .........at least thats what we'll be doing.........

Alternatively...pick out your best packs......convert them to stick packs and use for your GP starter box......at least you get a few more months of use!!!

were only racing in really remote area and the most drivers we have every week for onroad is around 10-15. no point for the people working there thinking of designs every week

besides, theres oval race and offroad race! i think they are busy enough getting everything organized!
With a low turnout then it really is a waste of time to change the track often. I drive 100 miles to race, but I'm still lucky to have this caliber of a track close to me.

Your right on the time, but it's definately worth it, today we had Barry Baker, Cliff Lett, Curtis Husting, Mike Reedy, Mark Pavidis, Travis Azemecua, Mike Truhe, Steve Weiss and Josh Numan at the track, the competition is always there.

It's always cool to be around the pro's. Travis Amezcua brought 4 ziplock bags filled with those white ball cups you see in the pics of Losi driver's cars. They were testing the new cup design, I think it will be very good. One of the 4 molds was a pain in the ass to get over the ball, very tight, but once it was on, there was absolutely no bind at all, very cool stuff.
