Talking

So I ran that Nitrage yesterday at LaMirada (a great local SoCal parking lot track, huge straightaway fun flowing layouts, good consistent medium traction, and a very clean dust free surface They even have a mini class ) That sucker is Fun with a capitol F! They put out some bicycle ramps for the gearbox class... I didn't know something so heavy could fly 30 feet through the air What a blast! Thanks again!!

If you want to borrow it, let me know, I will wash off the cobb webs for you.

I thought they already had a buyer lined up and thats why they were selling out, I mean selling it...

Oh no, CARPET!

Wait, I've never run carpet before, so I can't complain.

Well then let's toss in some ideas......

My vote is for Lipo's for the mini class next year! Heck, Lipo's for EVERY class!

I'm also all for the Formula GT class Fred teased us with earlier this year, running TA05 cars with the 13.5 brushless system and Lipos. Talk about zero maintenance!

Hmm....I've never been, so I really don't know what to even guess. But PLEASE tell me it does NOT mean we have to run Tamiya plugs!!!

TA05 + 13.5 = GT4. at least thats what i remember Fred saying last, last time i talked to him at the tamiya track.

not lipos... but TEAM ORION lipos.. since they're in a hard case, which makes them safer. that'd definitely be nice to have lipos in all classes
