Going good, weather is getting nice and we are getting the itch to get outside and race. Our little girl is almost 2 now, she is about ready to hit the track and start whipping the boys! LOL

Wow I have not been tracking the weather but that is almost down right hot! Got to make sure I have my casper hat to keep my white head protected!

I am getting on a plane in about 3 hours. I will be home soon so I will be on the boards the same times as you guys (and gals) again soon.

I have a couple sets of 2 stage in some tires and some molded foams. We will figure it all out. We will need to put the begging face on and see what we can get when we get there.

I talked to Dawn Sanchez today and she told me they are expecting their shipment of tires from Losi on Tuesday. The track was wet today, probaly from them packing it down. The quad in front of the drivers stand are pretty close together. I wonder if MOD will be doing a triple single.

No one has any tents up or areas marked off yet. See you guys when you get here.


Regards,

I think we know this guy.... If you see him call the authorities he is presumed to be dangerous....... He is known to strap Banzai motors in his RC vehicles.....

Oh and Mom, Pang ran his "other" 19T (the one I didnt already run ) last night. I think he almost dirtied his shorts when he pulled the trigger the first time on the straight! He also said that it was faster than that "other" very popular 19T!

Hello All,
I have taken a few photos of the mods I made to keep my motor from De-Soldering. Attached are a couple of photos for your review. Good luck to the entire Banzai team for racing this season!

He took 1 look at my car and told me to cut out my chassis protector where the motor sits. So I did that as well as made a side vent just before where the end bell of my motor is. (Thanks to my buddy Nate for that one).
I never experienced the problem again, plus the temp of my motor is cooler. I'm guessing 40-50 degrees cooler.
