Default ...

the dump truck is on order

Actually with the change in format from 7 straight up races to a "qualifying" format, I may not do so well. I really suck at qualifying... Just look at my last two years at reedy... C main baby.... With Rod making the A both years....rod seems to do much better in qualifying format than I do.

Also with the much slower motors this year the racing is going to be even closer..... Add in the fact that it is 8 mins which means we won't be able to jam hard for 8 mins and any accidents are going to affect your run time....it's anybody's race!!!

I think the unknown factor will be if Ling's pooch can sneak on to the grid with nobody watching and "water down" everyone elses electronics.

I was thinking of using one of those bright red shock sponges scotch taped under my trigger. At the five minute mark, I flick it off! Nah...screw it, I'll be punched all 8 mins.

Default Why are the Intellect 3800 not legal anymore?

Hello

The rules for 2005 (batteries) includes the Intellect 3800. So I got some for the regionals.

4. The batteries that are allowed for the 2005 season are: Sanyo NI-CD 2400, Sanyo NI-MH HV 3000, 3300 & 3600, Panasonic 3000 Ultra Metal Hydride, Panasonic 3000 Stock Metal Hydride, GP (Gold Peak) 3300 & 3700, Intellect 3600, 3800 and LRP 3700.

Now I just received confirmation for my registration for 8/27 and 8/28 TCS finals and the 3800 are not listed in the rules.

Is it an error ?
Or do I have to purchase new batteries like 3600 in order to participate?

Would you or someone else could tell me please what to do to a silver can, to make it ready for racing. I have never used one before.

Thanks in advance

O Sherman for GT1, he has an "Incredible" avitar.

Kevin Mickeleceleckeleck GT2 due to the sheer size of his RC collection.
(SP? figured it was easier to butcher it than spell it)

F1 do they still race that?

Doc for Mini

I hope all 3 are not running F1.

Of course the Dumptruck for past chumps!

With everybody going to vegas, it might be an easier year to compete at the TCS Nats, as in fewer entries...
