I'm not sure how to respond to your question, Franko, as I do not recall codifying rules for fair conduct in the porta-potties. So, taking the shortest cut from here to there, I will say the rules are exactly the same as last year.

But then, as an initiate might pause when questioned by the master, "Is there more to this question? Does he teach by parable?" And so I ponder, is he being ironic? Franko the Ironist? I would not have thought to go there, yet here I am. Perhaps you make a point about rules and the means and nerve to enforce them?

If I were to say, "No rim squatting, as it is associated with more frequent dooking on the hinge!" But how to enforce such a rule, even if, in the eyes of all, it is a just rule serving the commonweal?

I thank you, Franko, for leaving me with much to consider.
Thank God I am feeling much better ...TY

This should cover it Franko.

Rules for the porta-potties:

-Only one at a time in the potty.
-No phony phone numbers.
-No open flames.
-No napping.
-No squat-stands on the lid.
-No beverages or snacks allowed.
-No group rocking of porta-potty.
-Wipe your feet before entering.
-Wipe your a$$ before leaving.
-No retrieval of items dropped in dump hole.
-No washing of hands in urinal (it's not a wash basin) with cookie.
-No eating the urinal cookies. (You didn't pay for them)
-Close lid after (and I stress "after") using.
-If the experience leaves a gagging type odor, give a loud verbal warning.
-Shake it only twice. (More than that is just playing with it)
-Above all, flush after using.

Loving the new 1400G rule... had to only remove 16G with all the new lightweight Hobbywing gear... the new G3 motor is exactly 40G less than a Reedy...

I have decided to change motor manufacturers this year and chose Maclan. I ordered two 17.5's and one 21.5, all "team editions" I put them on the test station last week and one of the 17.5's and the 21.5 are just screaming. They register 120 db on my meter. I put the 21.5 in a car to test and the noise is incredible. I have a tough time believing they would come from a builder like this but I have to assume they are bad. Thoughts/ ideas?

I would ask Maclan directly, if I were you. I have about 4 of their motors and none too loud and all work quite well. I have never put mine on a DB meter, but usually loud means fast though :-)

My 17.5 and 21.5 does run a bit loud, but as shown during the season, it had plenty of power. I'd run it a couple times to verify, but I think you'll find that the noise doesn't equal a lack of "spunk".

My 17.5 registers at 82 DB so it may be a defect in the motors. I've never had any motor register about 100 myself.

BTW, 120 db is about the sound pressure level of a loud lawn mower! Consider that the SeaTac Parks ban on Nitro powered cars could and should apply to any electric motor that emits North of 100 db! (Heavenly Smell of Nitro Fumes not included!)

Turns out the answer was a simple one. The bearings were dry. Lubed the bearings and the db came down to ~98
