Ok, if you were serious, we will too.
There will be 1 apartment (ASTON 5star) 3bedroom, for 4 or max 5(on the sofa) person for 2 nights. Check in May21st at noon and check out May23rd on the morning.
Very convinience place, there is dining table and living room table that usually we use to setup the car. Not to mention there is a big mirror on the wall that you can bring it down and use it as a HUDY Setup Board
The hotel is just 15-20 minutes to JITC.

And 1 appartment is on da haus !

There is no special intention for that, we just want to welcome RCTech racers as much as we can.
So far there is 3 Thai racer, and some Singapore racers, thanks for Mr Hamnett for organize that.
We will announce it when it was certain.

Default sepent starter

i have a serpent powerstart compact and today when trying to start my engine the starter could not turn the fly over i have only started my car about 20 times on it and now the two motors have seemed to of lost all power (and yes the batteries are fully charged!) Do i need to replace the motors and if so should i buy a couple of modifieds to install instead?

That sounds real odd. Check the wires from the cell to the motors, it sounds like one of the motors has lost its connection. also check the switch. If you want to replace the motors, go for the mod motors that one would get for a T-Maxx, but I dont see why. It would give you enough cranking power to break the conrod if the engine hydrolocks though. My first bet would be the cables. Check them first, then check all the connections. Let us know how you fare.

At the time I panicked! I didn't know the car wasn't turned on so I quickly grabbed the M8 and tried to press the brake but the throttle wouldn't return! So then I attempted to shut the car off with my running shoe. Only after I finally got it shut off that I realized that I never even turned the car on. Trust me, when you hear your brand new engine screaming in pain all you can think off is getting it shut down as quick as possible! I'll take it apart this weekend as its suppost to rain again, but I'm sure it will be OK. Let me tell you, that NS12S3 really screams!!!
