Guess that is what they'll allow um do to win one, but I think its sad ...
not experimental, not hot wired,not supplying extra voltage to the motor, how long would 200mah 7.4 volts last if it was.

if you wish to complain, then you and sean should get together and write a letter to AE for allowing/making a full factory driver run 13.5

Right once again.... The H30 thread got hijacked with speedo madness.


I am going to build up a mod 12th for this weekend with an old dusty 5.5 from the stone age, set the speedo to "neutered" and give a whirl. I will also have a 13.5 ready to rock. I have a GenX roller that I should liquidate at this time. Anyone interested, drop me a PM. It's the same car I used in comparison testing with Steve a few months back.

For those interested in the MS3L, my hand hovers over "go" button. I have one little material issue I want to resolve before I go forward. I hope to get some info shortly. Guess I better sit down and start making up the instructions.

I once heard the WG Ralph Burch say "the difference between a fast racer and a pro is throttle control".

You want to learn throttle control, run mod 1/12 scale!

you wanna drop by tonight to pick up the body and tires? I have two really cool bodies, one is a JB painted special, the other is a CRC open cockpit that WES did his magic on. found the bad of tires so you'll need to go thru it to pick out the ones you want, actually you can just have the whole bag. theres some foam sedan tires in there as well. I also have a extra 9650 steering servo if you need it.
