Kind of a related topic, any word on the Drivers Corner on the website?

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.
Maj.

Feel free to send me the email addresses or contact info of people you need to reach.

So everyone's knows...the "Driver's Corner" pages/templates are ready to go. We are just waiting to get all the drivers' info. Dan...maybe we can put up the pages that I already have and keep adding as we get more info.

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.

JohnFontaine come on and help a brother out!!!!
LOL . Brian, send an email to Dan. Can't promise anything but it's worth a shot. I think he gets 40+ emails a day for sponsorship though. I was lucky to get in early with Fukuyama

Chris vs Jimmy at Socal. That will be a good race. Someone video it for me??

John

You're probably experiancing what I've heard called voltage bounce. When the cells discharge down and hit 5.4v, the machine cuts off and the cells voltage will bounce back up. It's normal.

Dan, Jimmy - I know it wont bring in a lot of profit, but it will keep potential customers from going elsewhere if you had reciever packs. I'm gonna need one for my gas car, and 1/12 scale car here soon...

dan/fukuyama racers.

here is the tshirt i mentioned previously. a buddy of mine did me a favor and had this silkscreened for me no cost. unfortunately he could only run 1 off. dan let me know if you have interest in making more of these and i can get quotes from him. for that version i could have him put 'www.fukuyamaracing.com' across the back like you mentioned before.

let me know what you guys think.
