On another note.. Anyone know where I can get me some nice bodies painted? I need some show stuff for the nats!!
Check out BKPaintwerks. Bryce does an excellent job. He has painted several for Stefan Millay and Tres Leonard. I think he is one of the best. Tres may have pictures of some of his bodies. I have a few that I can provide.

Gary,

You can also check with J Henry on the team. He paint a lot of the bodies here in texas and did Ron Atomics from the Birds.

Hi everyone,

Just wanted to drop in and say hello. Most of this week I've been busy working on designing a new experimental voltage enhancement system for our cells, which has been codenamed "Wake and Bake". We determined this system works ridiculously well and truly bring cells into the 1.19 voltage range without any deadshorting. Unfortunately the current method of working this magic it is not very practical as it takes too much time for production purposes... So with the help of my friend from MEC and the intercept software we're working on designing a PCB will be do it all for us.

Only time will tell if indeed our idea is going to work, but I can tell you one thing for certain -- We're not going to stop trying till we've devised a better way then the current, very inefficient method of SCR based voltage enhancement.

Finally, 1.18 cells are available, but not listed on the website yet. Hope all of you that received them lately are as pleased as we are. Gary should be posting them this weekend. If you want these high voltage cells before then, feel free to send an e-mail.

JP

Thumbs up Last Night!!!!

Gary and JP, you guys missed a great night of fun last night. We only had 110 entries so I broke all the heats down with less people. The action was awesome. Everyone is getting better and better as the season goes on and the racing is closer than ever. We were done at 11:15 and packed up and out the door just after 12. We still had racers for every class. It was great all around.See you in 2 weeks...........WAYNE
