I have about 10 or 12 of these if you are in need and can leave them at Four Seasons to be picked up on the way down south, or I can get them to you when I arrive at TZII, but I won't be there till Friday morning. PM me if you need em.

Question for all the guys going to Nats this week. Anyone have an esc that might be for sale? Might be able to come up with some cash for a good offer. Looking for alittle better performance than my current SP citrix. Nothing like scrambling at the end, otherwise I would go to my LHS. . Gonna have to drive like never before this weekend for sure.

I would stay with the citrix unless you plan to run modified or possibly a boosted class. Your cirtix should be equal to the more expensive ESCs in the non-boosted classes.

If you're lacking speed it could be a motor issue. Currently the D3 motors look like the motor to have in stock.

mike, actually the cirtix when ran back to back with a reg esc is a little off,

grant, which day you coming down? if tomorrow, (wed) then just practice with your cirtix until the groove comes in and see how it goes, if on thrusday (controlled practice day) run the first two rounds with your stuff then I'll pull the SP LPF out of my car and loan you that and see if lap times improve. either way you should be ok

Thanks Ritchie. You are very kind. That way I can see if it's me or equipment. Unfortunatly I am starting to lean toward me. . I am going down tomorrow morning so hopefully I can practice my ass off and really get a good comparison. See ya tomorrow.

I think Steve is rubbing off on me. Tomorrow I'm bringing a car that is hardly near runnable, and a zip lock bag of parts to make it go.

See some of you in the morning!
