My question is, has anyone used this kind of feature and if so what would you recommend for stock & 19 turn racing (that's all I race)?
LOL i had almost the same exact question. Anyways HarshGuy where did you pick up your X3? How do you like it?

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the anwser John.

Yea thanks for the answer John

..JDXray I got it at Speedworld Raceway, I don't know how I like it yet, won't use it till Saturday, I have the Pitbull (the blue one model before this) and love it, at the time it was the only small charger that had long lockout, this one's long lockout is mah programmable not just 10 minutes ...I actually got it cause I'm gonna start running stock AND 19 so needed 2 chargers and the charger is so small they both fit in my pitbag ...and it rocks (assuming it's at least as good as my other pitbull ).

I really like my GFX. If I had to buy another charger, I'd get an X3. Same programing as the GFX, just stripped down a little in the features. Same strong charge time after time. Here's a picture of my gfx Modded a tad of course...LOL

I'm looking to trade my Turbo35 BL Stealth (autographed by Barry Baker, no less) and some cash for a GFX. If you guys know of anyone who might be interested, lemme know.

Now, back on topic:

I'm starting to run stock again after 8 months of 19T. What is everyone's opinions on the Mako's? Good or bad, lemme have it.

Rob

I use the mako and it's a good performer. Fukuyama brushes work well with the motor, though it does get hot..
