We can make it on the 25th. We had the foam 19 turn working pretty good on Sunday so thats what I want to run on the 25th... 2nd choice would be stock foam.

maybe if turnout is good enough, we can have a seperate stock foam class
I'll run 19T if I have to, but I could use the track time with stock foam.

Usually if there is enough intrest and guys Scotty will run both stock and 19t

Brad,

Last night you mentioned to Skipper that you put a horizontal slot in the gold brush for cooling, does that decrease the brush life per run?

ah makes sence with the softer springs as well. would the horizontal slot have any benefit for 1/10th. I run everything full faced and it seems to work fine for me.

Default 1/10th Sedan motor.....

Ron....the slot will help the brush stay cooler and it will not change your brush life other then it might last a run longer then a full face one. You will not get as much power out of the cut brush. You will gain a little RPM with the slot and a little more efficiency. If your running outside and are worried about heat in your motor then the cut would be worth it but inside it might not be worth the loss of power, but it is always something to try.





Brad.....are all PURPLE tires equal?????

Guys, workin on battery box designs and started playin around with the logo and havin a little fun. Just wanted to see what you all thought. Brad I know you didn't mention anything about the logo changing but I was just doing some sketching and thought this looked interesting. Don't worry about hurting my feelings if it looks like a dumb idea, I never hold on that tight to my designs.

Ron

Brad-have you been running your Rev4? I need a med bite carpet set-up for it. My killer Nats set-up isnt working that well now.

Thanks,
Ray
