LOL.. already went out and got one. Came in yesterday, going to run it just to try it out. I just had to! Too cool of an idea!

I might be tempted even if I did not run GT2 while at the Nats.

Although since everybody is speaking "hypothetically" what if this became the new GT1, GT3 became GT2 and FF03 that will be done in theaters.

Yep, that's the one. Nothing like a good old TA05R. And chasing you with it was a highlight of that race for me. Now that I'll have to invest in an FF03 to run GT3, it's a bit of a shame. So I'd like to see it run at least once more, for old timers' sake.

You're very kind. Hebiki has been helpful on this, shout-out to the big H. I do in fact have the hotwire, but have been lazy and keep forgetting to bring my laptop. Also too cheap to buy a web-book. I guess I better bring the big table this weekend, so I have room for the computer and the tire truer.

make sure you keep the tire truer on one end of the table and the computer at the other end....foam bits on a lap top can make a messy keyboard

Aw man, I like that feeling of rubber marbles under my fingers as I type. Besides, Kevin CBR was telling me that tire bits would make my broadband modem work faster.
RedBull: can do. You going to do some F1? I gots a nice F103 with graphite chassis what likes that track very much. Also, you get my response to your request? I got the e-mail. PM me if you need.

For those who have been waiting, the latest production run of Red Dot silver can motors will begin to ship today.

This is our annual 'Memphis TCS' run, for the Memphis "no RPM limit" event in a few weeks. We pull out all the stops for this run each year, and this one is no different- lots of very tasty motors in this batch.

Interested parties should drop me a line at [email protected] before they're all gone.

Steve and Orlando - I would get the Tamiya system if it became spec for GT-2 and I think the rest of the Hong Kong mafia I race with would too.

Tom - you can use my black box and PC to adjust that new fancy speedo. Just ignore the "Warning - Area 51" stickers on the lap top.

Dave - would this be bright enough to follow ? I even have the lights working in case it gets dark again.

That looks just right Kevin.
