You should NEVER make posts like this one!
If they give in to you this way, everyone will want them to do this. Next time you try something like this PM them and then maybe .....

Racing update:

Took a 3.5 hour drive north to Hutchinson, KS yesterday to run at High Performance Hobbies' new carpet track. I qualified 3rd out of 11 drivers in stock foam, and finished 2nd in the A behind the local hotshoe, Doug Gaut.

Not bad for running foams for the first time last night, eh?

The Fukuyama batteries were strong(!) all night and gave my car great rip, despite having a mediocre motor.

Thanks for the support guys!

Rob

Sorry I missed you guys. The High School football team I coach just keeps winning and we had to work on sat to get ready for next week...great for my work but kills my hobby!

What were your thoughts of the track? I have not seen the new off road yet.

The carpet track was dialed. Huge amounts of traction.

Just move it about 3 hours closer to Tulsa, and it's perfect.

I'll second that one, that track felt GOOD, just the way carpet is supposed to be(& considering how I've never been a big fan of foams on touring cars, that fact that I did pretty well says something about it, ). BTW, Rob, do you remember what the web address of that place is? I forgot to write it down.....Oh, & for the record, I also ran my Fuku goodies(including the Makos) & finished right behind Rob(just hit one too many barriers in the main).....

Work -

Charging loose GP's that haven't been matched by Fukuyama Racing might cause overheating and venting. I would drop down to 5 amps for those and a .03 peak detect.

LosiRob and Grizzbob, Good Job!!

John

P.S. Just so you guys know, I won't be around the forums to answer questions Friday Oct 29th to November 8th since I'm getting married on Oct 30th and then going on my Honeymoon. I'll let our other highly trained team drivers and customer pick up the slack while I'm gone. Happy Racing while I'm out of the country

If you're getting married we'll have to miss you longer then just those 10 days
It will probably take you a couple of weeks to train her so she'll leave you alone when you turn on the computer

That was the way it went with me anyway

Congrats!
