Thanks Garret and Franko.

I need 4 but can probably get by with 2.

Default Power Cap Woes

Hi all,

So, the power cap on my Speed Passion Pro Stock ESC is slightly damaged, but still working. I have a couple spares, but wanted to know if they are compatible. Specifically, I have this hop-up one from LRP:

Will this LRP power cap work on my Speed Passion ESC or is it LRP specific? I don't want to damage anything of course!

Peace,
Sam

Saw the email about two tracks.

What about a much smaller track on Wed that would fit in the heated portion?

Limit it the smaller/slow classes like stock 1/12th, Trans Am, Novice, F1, 1/16th Carpet Offroad*.

*Of course I would stick that in there. You all know where I stand.


Orrr you could go really nuts and use a RCP and miniz for something totally different from Sat. The track at Microsoft had to be taken down, so that might be a way to make initial RCP and Laptiming investment cheaper if you can buy it from them. It could also as well get new racers from the local miniz crowd.

With the Hangar being renovated that space may not be available, or exist. That side of the building is being changed. The Hangar will have heat, power, and lighting improvements but no major change to the floor. It will be more inhabitable in the winter, but not as comfortable as the gym.

Hey guys,

Getting everything ready for our ECC and preparing my final orders this weekend. If you guys have any special request shoot me a PM or email me @ kody (at) emeraldcityrc.com. Should have ORCA products coming in as well!

Also I just received a limited amount of the Reedy 17.5 motors and Reedy 7000 2s batteries!

Kody

I have a baggie full of caps somewhere, I'll try and find it.

ps you can also peel the coating off and see what size it is, perhaps radio shack or frys has one.
