Are those from our Power Cube? because we don't call it "satchel of cells" so I wouldn't be able to tell you what specs those are in.

Yes, I believe any R/C Manufacturer or company can send in a request for one of two of it's drivers to attend.

There is a legal reason behind this. I believe mostly all matchers are doing the same with the new GP cells.

You can PM Anthony Yuen who is exclusive Hong Kong distributor. I'm sure you will start finding them at tracks and Mongkok. Good luck.

If that is the case then I have no complaint, I wouldn't want Fukuyama to get into trouble.

Default IFMAR

I was reading the rules...

$150.00+/- entry fees.

Qualifications:

1.7 COMPETITORS

1.7.1 Only National Bodies affiliated with FEMCA, ROAR, EFRA, FAMAR and affiliated member countries can enter competitors into the World Championship.

1.7.2 The number of competitors will be l50 (100 for 1/12th on-road electric). Places must be initially allocated as follows:

For 150 entries:

12 IFMAR (including the defending Champion and each affiliate member country will be entitled to a minimum of two ((2)) places).

32 EFRA, 32 ROAR, 32 FEMCA, 32 FAMAR

10 Host Bloc

For 100 entries:

10 IFMAR (including the defending Champion and each affiliate member country will be entitled to a minimum of two ((2)) places)

20 EFRA, 20 ROAR, 20 FEMCA, 20 FAMAR

10 Host Bloc

After distribution of the twelve (12), (ten ((10)) for 1/12th electric on-road), IFMAR places to the defending Champion and any affiliate member countries, the remainder of the twelve (12), (ten ((10), IFMAR places are to be distributed by the relevant IFMAR Section Chairman on a fair and equitable basis according to any extra requirements of the blocs.

All unused allocations will be returned to IFMAR for distribution on an equal basis between the Blocs. If there are any unused places still available prior to the commencement of free practice at a World Championship event and a driver who has not entered previously wishes to compete, he may request one (1) of the unused places only through his Bloc representative. The allocation request will be confirmed or denied to the Bloc representative by IFMAR. The member Blocs have the power to veto allocation of such unused plac

Good choice in my book. But of course, those same guys ended up going different directions, some with barracuda, SD, and etc. Thats why although I drive the cuda, I still have my TC3 just because. LOL!
Hey Dan, I NEVER knew that you had a TC3...
When was the last time that you drove it?(lol)

Are you going to come racing at SoCal anytime soon?

Dan, YGPM(couple of minutes after this post... )

if you have the extra time there is nothing wrong with using your Turbo 35 to get the cells more closely matched...

otherwise i think assembling the cells as is would still result in excellent packs. the cells themselves should be averages between 1.145v to 1.160.

even at a competitive club level the powercube cells can deliver great results.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

if you couldn't make it to cleveland....

http://www.nashrcracer.com/cleveland...2003videos.htm

on that website they posted the A Main of Stock TC...it's hard to make out Rob Love's car but you can hear the announcer say his name.

great job rob.

Any word on price and availability for the car?
Would be nice if you go. Since I'm pretty sure Tosolini will make it. He's already qualified to and I'll see if I can add another driver. Jimmy is a good candidate, but there are others in mind too. We'll see.

The car well, haven't confirmed it yet unless you can tell me what they are selling for here and when they are eta to show in the shops.
