If you have a Tamiya car, the track is open for practice for free on Saturdays. It's a little bit of a tricky track. It's easy to run on, hard to be fast on. The more track time I can get on it, the better. I was not real happy with my results last year and am hoping to improve on that (if I can get in that is)
Let me know when I get back from the Snowbirds. I might just start at Tamiya every Saturday. Iino San from Tamiya HQ will be there to host us. He's also a Fukuyama Driver believe it or not.

Is this information valid?

We can't really comment on the validity of the info on that thread but lets just say we haven't experienced any increases of runtime after the second charge here at Fukuyama Lab. Hope this helps.

I'll probably have to give all the driver's email contact to Nexus so he can bug them for it. Let's hope this thing goes up in mid Feb.

Now that I'm back in the states, I thought I'd contribute as little as I can so I can continue my vacation. LOL.. Boy! it looks like its been a long time since I've left for Japan but then, mine how we've grown. I know Dan is doing a great job and will continue to give my big brother all the support he needs whenever he needs it. Just an update of who's who in our team of drivers if I may. It looks like we are growing everyday of the week and our drivers have both taken the tracks and the heart of racers.

USA:
Robert Love
Chris Tosolini
Mo Denton
Matt Howard
Andrew Ellis
Jason Ertrachter
Howard Hudson
Randy Caster
Dave Berger
Jon Kerr
Anthony Isla
Curtis May
John Fontaine
James Arluck



Netherlands:
Peter Creemer

Asia:
Alan Yau
To Chi Kai
Dereck Hung
Joe Lo

So far, this is the list. I may have missed one of two. Please let me know. Happy Racing!

Jimmy
Jimmy, you need to include yourself in there. You know you have the skills and the experience right? I'll lay the money down for Tos to whoop your behind this Saturday at Socal. Up for it?

Dan
