Not yet guys. I'm still working on it. Rod and Orlando ran their FF-03's with silver cans this past Saturday. I don't like the fact that the cars are geared so tall that 1. You can't fit the gear cover. 2. It's tough to get the mesh right as the pinion is gynormous and 3. The brakes fade after a wile.

I'll announce the motor soon after more information is gathered.

Hey guys,
I was one of the last to leave the Aliso track yesterday evening and left my Orion Lap Counter sitting on the board below the driverstand.
I went back this morning to see if it was there and it wasn't so I'm hoping Kevin or one of the others that were still there picked it up.
Only a few guys were still hangin out at that time.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Contact info or ?

Thanks a lot,

Craig---'cuda

THANK YOU!
I can take out a second mortgage on my house, thanks Redbull!

I can pick it up most any evening or ?

If that is not convenient I can try to time it to meet at Tamiya Saturday after racing at Cal Raceway, formerly Bending Corners.
They are running an Ultimate F1 race Sat. am. (I think), you guys should do it!

Rubber and Foam F1 scored separately but run together, 1 round of qualifying by fastest lap for triple A and B mains. Super fun.

If you can, send me a pm with contact info. Thanks again
