From REDRC.NET (if you haven't visited this site, please do so as they have the latest news everything about RC... a very cool and informative website!)




The 2007 Florida Winternats is in the bag and it has produced some very exciting racing, none more so than the A-mains which were packed with talented racers and the best machinery. In the 1/10th scale A-main, the class with the most big names and most varied manufacturers, Paolo Morganti could easily convert his pole position into a much deserved win. The Serpent 720 racer could pull away from his pole position starting spot to win the race 6 laps ahead of 2nd placed racer, Chris Tosolini, driving for Kyosho. The final podium step went to Ralph Burch driving the Xray NT1, who finished only 3 seconds down on 2nd place Tosolini. Danny Horta and Martin Hudy had a close race for 4th with the Serpent driver getting the position by 1 seconds from the Xray racer after 45 minutes racing. It was worth mentioning that Jilles Groskamp managed to win every final from the H-main to the B-main, only to be disqualified after his car failed scrutiny stopping him from bumping up into the A-main.


1/10th A-Main Final Results
1. Paolo Morganti - 185L 45:10.29 (Serpent 720)
2. Chris Tosolini - 179L 45:01.65 (Kyosho RRR)
3. Ralph Burch - 179L 45:04.48 (Xray NT1)
4. Danny Horta - 176L 45:01.99 (Serpent 720)
5. Martin Hudy - 176L 45:02.91 (Xray NT1)
6. Martin Christensen - 175L 45:16.46 (Xray NT1)
7. Jared Scott - 175L 45:17.40 (Mugen MTX4)
8. Paul LeMieux - 174L 45:04.86 (Xray NT1)
9. Ron Atomic - 163L 45:04.70 (Kyosho RRR)
10. Jamie Corrado - 157L 45:03.69 (Mugen MTX4)
11. Andrew Duperrouzel - 150L 45:07.79 (Mugen MTX4)
12. Josh Cyrul - 118L 30:11.21 (Kyosho RRR)

Congrats to Paolo for the sedan win. It was not even close. He and Gianni make a great team and it is a team sport. Your pit man has to be good. Paolo drove a flawless race. You can see by the lap times no one was ever close. He was able to say consitently in the 13's, which no one else could do. Only in the last 10 minutes when he backed off did his times go down. And Gianni, all I can say is congrats to you also man. I wish I had a pit man like you. You are my Pit Hero. hahahaha Good job Serpent-Usa!!!!!!!!!!!

I guess I can start the questions back up. What's the feedback from the guys who have installed the 18T Overdrive conversion set (#803202)?

Yes, go to 3hobby.net and you'll see in the news-post ... a one-way equipped brake pulley!

Will it work for everyone? Maybe not but then again, not everyone is a Paolo either ... I'm going to try it for sure tho!
