We've had a consistant class each weekend, so I'd say it's a good chance. Chassis-wise, it's an open class, so the FGX should be fine, however it's rubber tires only.

Thank you, everyone, for the advice. I decided to go with a fully boosted 0.5-turn. Actually not but I got something that hopefully will be manageable.

PS. Yes, my wife. She's a saint, honest. She doesn't worry (much) because she knows I always spill the RC-beans eventually. Nevertheless, in accordance with man-faith traditions, we'll keep the motor thing between us menfolk for now, OK?

I'll pass on the spacers, but I'd love a quote on a batch of 55mm 1/8" hard stainless hinge pins.

Default New Layout!

Well, we got together earlier this week and again today and got the new layout dialed in. It's another Panda work of art executed by Alex and Jeff with help from the rest of the crew. Here's a video of the finished product. I think it will race brilliantly.

+ YouTube Video
ERROR: If you can see this, then YouTube is down or you don't have Flash installed.


Say thank you to the crew tonight, and also to Brian and Kody for their help on Wednesday rehabbing pipe in the back room.
