ProMaxx,

maybe check your gearing. the website Mark listed should make it easy.

http://www.comeseethis.com/gearing/gearing.htm

Also understand your motor and esc will run hotter during practice since you'll be running the car longer then 5mins.

sorry to hear you're having trouble.

I am assuming 3:30 racing as per the homepage but i could be wrong. I will be there a little late too, hopefully between 430-5 or so.

No one posted otherwise

Great Job RCHR crew!!!! Even though I didn't race today and spent the day rebuildng by ZX5 and getting the T4 running, everything went smooth and the day moved along nicely. There was some great racing and the Slash class was a blast to watch.

WHAT AN INCREDIBLE NIGHT!

Moocow made daddy proud!

VXL has a bunch of kinks worked out...hopefully i can get my skills up to handle the torque monster. A sidewinder would solve some issues but I'll stay box stock for now.

I can't thank all of you guys for such a crazy fun night! Everything went so smooth and quick. Marshalling overall was pretty smooth after each heat.

Damn Stallman you are a tough act to follow! MooCow sweat like a mofo. You put on a crazy chase and you came back for more and more every time!

Sorry mod truck folks. As a relatively new racer it is hard for me personally to know when to push to try to get some decent times down but still let the lappers through.

I don't want to just sandbag my run if i am not at the head of the pack but I am getting better at trying to give you guys the space you need. Sorry of I couldn't get out of my own way in some of the spots...I was doing alot of setup on the truck and the kinks are virtually all gone.

The VXL even got the covetted Mark W. seal of approval...wheelie and all haha!

I ran the VXL MUCH better on 6 cells to be honest. Didn't Freddy or someone have a bunch of nimh sticks for sale lolz?

It was definitely an awesome day of racing, after working some kinks out with the DSM system(moving the receiver), it was all good all night after that, had a good battle for 3rd with Will, and hit a 15.1, all in my first time racing the ZX5.

Steve
that X-60 was looking weeeekkked good, just gotta work the kinks out.

Kyle,
Needless to say, you're getting faster and faster, are you really giving up Electric racing?? Riiiighhhttt,

"he said his name was raaallllppphhhh"

Mike C.
Nice job there buuudddyyyy, you cut some nice clean lines with that Slash, that thing was looking smooth around the track.

And to all that won and participated, congrats...

So question for going to LI raceway.

When we all meet up (where ever thats gonna be) are we going like one cool convoy, or all we all gonna go separate ways and see who can get there faster and make fun of other people that got lost???
