King Krisp,
Fred said probably brushless, but he'll know for sure this week. Send him an e-mail and see if it's a sure thing. Personally, I think 23turn is too slow.

Aren't you TIRED of winning every single year?

That is the thing I am loving, no lathe, no brushes, no springs, no spring tools, no bushing tools really no motor maintenance.

Plus the TA05 is best for the class, TA04 is not.

Scottys was the first time my 05 turned a wheel and I drove it to 3rd in GT3, I might have been 2nd if not for a take out. I almost felt like Katzer ( sorry gary had to slip one in there). This from a car that used to be an 04 and was finished literally the night before we left for Milwaukee. Hopefully between now and next season I can work with it and get faster. Try and get a handle on motors as well.

At Trackside I know I had something for you guys in GT3, I had a voodoo doll disconnect the white wire on my esc causing glitching for the first 2 As. Like you said you really don't have to chase the setup. It comes down to driving and practice. Hopefully my daily practice over the past month will do me some good, so I can setup my layzeboy recliner on the pirate plank of the Tamiya TT driverstand. . .

I for sure hope you win Jeff! You and me can do the super bowl shuffle after you get home from your victory! But only with you! With someone else in chicago......eemmmmmmmmm....No!

Only you Jeff! your're the only Illinous person that i feel comforable doing the shuffle with! GO JEFF GO! GO JEFF GO! GO JEFF GO! GO JEFF GO! GO JEFF GO! GO JEFF GO! GO JEFF GO! GO JEFF GO! GO JEFF GO! GO JEFF GO! GO JEFF GO!

PS you surely would make my day if you win!

I'm uncertain. I hope Fred makes a decision soon. It really won't matter what motors we run, it's going to be fun.

ling - thanks, I hope it is brushless....or somthing fast. I hate the slow motors.

hey rod - for me the motor makes a big difference. I really don't like slow motors. I may not go this year due to work, but a fast motor may get me more creative around the work thing.

Slow motors, slow motors, slow motors! Haha- just kidding

For what it's worth I heard the same thing from Fred regarding brushless. As to which one though who knows... could be the slow one

Took me 2 years to build my TA05 (wasn't built for last years race) and now that it's done I'll see you guys at the 'past champs'.

yayeee I have a cheering section...
I think I will have room in my suitcase to fit the Leester...

Is it true that the powers that be are making Martin run Mabuchi while everyone else goes brushless. . .

Lee, as an Illinois resident, I thank god you don't feel comfortable doing the shuffle with me

Oh, and it's Illinois, not Illinous, and yes, you pronounce the S at the end
