Hey, dudes. Felt like poking in here.

Good run for us at Jackson this past week. Like I've said before Tag and I are really working on getting our team stuff going for indoor season.

Feel free to e-mail me any input or ideas for decreasing internal resistance levels in the cell, increasing voltage, cell maintenance, etc. Gary and I are always into trying out new stuff on the cells to get better performance out of them.

One thing we're really working on is figuring out ways to thwart short-term cell degradation. Dead-shorting is one item that we're playing with and having *very* positive results--also maintenance zapping. BUT, there must be other voodoo out there that we haven't looked at yet. Feel free to send me some suggestions my way.

Tyler, I can answer for Tag: he's been playing with the 4WD a little bit this summer and has been successful with getting it to run up at Dirt Runners. The car is fast and handles well. We were chatting about it a few weeks ago.

I'm not sure if he's going to run it up at Dirt Runners for the Challenge.

Hehhee...Billy, you are *THE MAN*!

We're talking about this. I got the inside scoop from someone who shall not be named (or he'll get in trouble) about the virtues of the 35 Amp discharge rate. We just need to do some more testing and comparisons before we made any sort of leap into it.

I know your packs are blazing, Bill. Believe me, I know *all about it*.

BTW, nice run, Sunday. You were the only one in spitting distance of Cuffs. Everyone else was stuck on 22.

35 I'm going 40 I just played with some Ideas and only had 24 hours to let the cells rest and ran them tonight I went 1 lap faster than my best run so were going the right direction just need to check the cells now to see how they held up the if it worked I'll pass what I tried.

Billy you could cycle spec packs along with Jeff and still be fast,good run sunday
