Can someone CET some AA cells for my transmitter?

Good luck at the snowbirds guys. I was looking through the entry list and it's stacked. Hopefully next year I will be going down with you guys.

Like the shirt too

John

Nice shirts! simple yet brings out the name and looks awesome! something tells me I definately need to talk to you and your friend bro! Please call me at the office in the afternoon. Thanks.
thanks dan i'm big fan of the 'keep it simple' design theory...i think that helps the company name/logo standout. otherwise you get all these crazy designs and the actual logo/product gets lost in the shufffle.

i'll give you a buzz later today while i'm at work...might be funny if you hear some good calls over the police radio in the background.

Yeah, your packs should be fine. If you don't have one, you may want to invest in a good equalizing tray too. I like the Rayspeed one. You can get it from SpeedtechRC. It has a .90v per cell cutoff and two discharge rates. It's help keep the packs in good shape.

Just curious on the motors.

Are they relabels or your own design? If they are relabels, are you actually winding the mods yourself?

I know a lot of companies don't actually wind the mods, they just but their label on it and tune it up, just like the stocks and 19t.

I am excited to try one out. I love messing with motors, would be GREAT it was actually a new design as I love to see something new and test it.

Right now the stocks are relabels and tuned. Just like everyone elses. I'm not too sure what the plans are going to be for the Modifieds. I think that's still being worked out.

Ah, so its only stockers first....thats pretty much a guarantee they will be relabels. Makin yer own stocker from the ground up can run upwards to 100k, if not more counting design and intial order.

Mods however, can be done much cheaper and on a smaller scale. Even buying OEM from Reedy or Orion you can still wind yer own stuff.

Will be interesting to see what goes on with the mods.

I'm very impressed with the Yokomo teardowns. Possibly the Ti and Pt...

I vote no on the KR's. I like the 19 turn but the mods I've had trouble with.

The 19t Reedys come prewound, so do the epics......not sure on orions.

Not sure why you would vote no on the KR. All the reedy guys have been flying with them. Blackstock and Easton with major wins in the last few months with them.

The TI is still a solid motor, for both touring and other classes. The PT is really a 1/12th scale motor. Mike Reedy won't even build them up for racers really anymore to use in touring car.....

The KR is a solid choice.....its either that or an EPIC. Orion won't have the V2s available OEM until summer at the earliest and they are a TON more tedious to put together.

The reedy guys also have Mike Reedy building the KR's for them. I've just had a lot of over heating trouble and they seem to be pickey about getting the gearing and timing just right. And if you're not a pro motor builder, (which I'm far from) they're hard to deal with. I like the D5 Teardowns and I'm loving the Orion Revolution I've been running off road. I'll be getting a couple of them for on-road soon (as soon as someone has them and the brushes in stock)
