He's got the tickets and he's got the hotel room.
Pack the mayo.

Meanwhile, it has been officially announced that the Spec Battery for the Nats will be the Orion 3300 V-Max Sport Pack. A two-fer, no less, for $42 the pair. Voltage will be at a premium, but speed is like your in-laws: it's all relative.

Those Orion spec packs do pretty well in a mini, or so I'm told. I might just have a few around here to practice with.

Either way, it's bargain basement pricing for the batteries. Gotta love that!

I'm packing my gear now. See everyone next Thursday!!!

Anyone running Rear Wheel drive or the Long Chassis.

I'm bringing the arsenal with me....Short/Medium/Long....All of the M03 flavor. The M04L Beetle is staying home.

I sold my race-prepped M04M last year, and now I'm sorta regretting it.

Big Rigg or anyone else if you want to order and pay for any goods you need from SIR there are 4 of us flying in Monday, 3-4 Wednesday. So if we have it and know before the flights we can bring it down for you.

Doug and I were also planning on putting some Inventory in our bags. Arms, knuckles, etc. Can't say for sure we'll have it but with Customer service gone parts will be a little more of a challenge this year.

I have two sets of B3s for sale. They are already mounted on white dish rims with Tamiya green inserts. Been wanting to sell them ($25/per mounted set; $50 for the lot), but I'm in China right now 'till Saturday Nats. PM me if interested. Maybe we can arrange something...

Talk to Doug @ SIR, they have a bunch of people flying down on Mon and I'm driving, either way you will get them.

But for a free lunch, those guys better get out of my way!

Warehouse has moved and they are now 50 miles away instead of at the other end of the parking lot

According to Tamiya's web site, parts will not be available from them at the track.
