Anyone else think it's a little ironic that Dan's got a kid named TRINITY?

sorry, got distracted by Rod M's Avatar.....

I haven't driven a mabuchi/johnson 540 motor in years. I wish they would make all novices run the motor, it would help them learn control, vs having them fly around the track, breaking parts etc.

Who's all going to the SoCal Grand Prix? Will we have all fukuyama users in the winner's circle?

Fire - The customer will always get good cells from Fukuyama. There's not a bad one in the bunch! Just look at all the positive feedback here on just this site.

Usually sales of 1.18+ are rare.

Sure Shayd....You can borrow one of my 1.15s...Just make sure it "reappears" magically after racing...
j/k

I agree with John, even @1.17, your getting killer packs. Your better off working on your driving skills; as I have found using Fukuyama packs. I've found that even at 1.16, i've had more than enough power then i'd ever need. And with Fukuyama motors coming soon, the combo should be ballistic.

My only question: Will the motors be labeled in Flourescent yellow?

Fuku rocks. I have tested with SMC and Peak similar pack and have runtime advantage over them with a little more punch.

Outpunch the A main guys!

Just another compliment from Team ROBUST

Default Specials. Limited deal

Guys, so I haven't done this for a while on here so here's the deal.

First 5 orders of 1.165~1.169 x 3 packs=$129 +$10 shipping and insurance U.S. only. This is only good for Rctech guys here and must email me at: [email protected]

Just for kicks, we're making this a special since we haven't gotten any other special on our site this month. Each order will enter you three times into the drawing for the month of November.

Dan

Default never had this happen...

I charged my battery, 6A @48mV cut off, 140-145 temp., and ran it for about 6 min., when I checked the temp. it was 88. Is this normal, I've never had a pack that was actually cooler after running, then before. Should I gear up or should I leave well- enough alone? Any help would be appreciated, Thanks, Chris

Did it FEEL like it was cooler? Perhaps your temp gauge is on the fritz? My packs are always nice and toasty after a decent run.
