Nah. I've never been snowed in...even when I went to college in Rochester NY where we got over 100" each year.

Hey John, what about back in '96? I didn't know you back then, so I'm not sure if you lived around here or not, but we had 6+ feet of snow in 2 days! It was nuts!

I'm not sure when I'll able to do a big race right now, as I just got started on a new job(got fired from my old one at the end or Feb. & have been training for my new one for about the last 5 weeks, but I should be officially finished with the training in a couple of days), & because of its schedule, my racing could suffer a bit(though I still believe I can do a fair amount of Sat. night club racing). But I do still hope to be able to make it back to next year's Novak race, as long as I can arrange to have enough days off(& just as an FYI, my new job is as a tech support rep. in a Sprint Call Center, so I've been learning the ins & outs of the cell phone business, & now have my first phone by Sprint). Fortunately, I finished paying off all my old debts before I was fired, so the financial transition has been pretty painless(& I even picked up the XRay M-18 micro car in the meantime, GREAT little car), & I'll be looking at getting a new big car VERY soon, so things are looking up in general.....

The pitbull is a fine charger. As far as the cells, If' you're running a brushless, you're going to get long runtime no matter what. Either way, power cube or Matched 1.15's. If you're looking to save some $$$, go for the power cube. Most of the cells in the cube are in the 1.14-1.16 range anyways so you should be fine.
