Now if I could just use the Flux Capacitor to harness that charge.

If you can find a foil-based chassis protector sheet, that can help. Or you can paint the chassis using a metal-based paint. Honestly, though, your best bet is to run a different kind of chassis on carpet. Either graphite or graphite composite.
Yeah, Hopefully I'll have the Durango ready to go by next time or have my Basher ready (if the parts ever come). It funny I remember touring cars having this problem occasionally with I used to race onroad at SSH. I forgot what the solution was back then.

Martin Bayer's Xb4 at the EOS race. He probably knows about it and still wins with the car. Still don't see the problem. If you didn't see the problem you wouldn't even know it was there on the track.

Kregger, I didn't really notice any static on my lcg slash or 4x4 up there...but I guess the bandit sits a little lower then that.

Guys, Sorry for the wait...Here are the results from Sat.

The real question is when will he ever build it. Probably never. He's still a year behind in putting a damn ESC into his YZ10

lol. u guys are too funny. I'm still admiring the yz10 in all it's glory on the shelf

re: the xray, well, my b44.3 actually wasn't too bad. but, I didn't have the ideal tire combo, so my car was inconsistent at times. 2 laps down from the xray luxury leaders last night.... It's tempting, but I'm rc lazy and like my AE stuff. But, when there's a 2wd xray... we'll see.
