Hey Michael!

Nice site! Looks like you have a great product for the racing community. If you sell what you race, there will be a lot of winning cars, at least be fast getting there.

Been going okay, bought a new house and doing the family thing, working, etc...Been racing dirt oval lately becuase no sedan racing in town. Hard to travel very far to race working 6 days a week. You motors and batteries look awful tempting, might have to put in an order to beat up on ol scotty (him beat up on me, I mean)

Take care and please keep Robert under control, or try.

I'm liking the IB3800 more and more.

I just want to vouch for Michael's motors. I used the Atlas 19T for the first time a few weeks ago in my XRAY FK05, and I absolutely loved it - it has a great combo of speed and torque - I ended up TQ with a 2nd place finish in the A main.

This thing likes to be geared high - it did not come alive until I was about 4 teeth higher than my Orion Element and C2.

If you have never tried the Atlas 19T - you need too - I already have a few folks around the track ordering some so they can keep up with me....lol

I wish we could have used these for the Vegas race, but oh well, after that, I doubt I will keep any other 19T motor - I have tried the Reedy, Orion, and the C2, but none of them have the torque or the speed like the Atlas does - the C2 is the next closest motor, but my lap times are still a .1sec to .3sec difference on average.

You cannot beat the price and the customer service - I had my motors within 4 days of me ordering them - and Michael helped me with gearing and setup for my car with the Atlas...can't really ask for more....

Mike-

Ran the packs last night against two other guys getting ready for Las Vegas as well and boy these things are nice. The IB3800 ran smooth and lap times stayed consistant throught the run. Ran 19turn last night on out 56x32 and we had a ton of fun.

Catch ya later.

Mike T.

We ran 40 laps last night, tight technical track so if you post 1/2 lap or more is lost by the time you get marshalled. best I could do was 7.09 the other guys best lap was a 6.89 and 6.99. So not far off.

Package didn't make it yet, so hopefully tomorrow it will show up. Can't wait to cycle that new pack.

If your going to IRP next week let me know. Might see if I can scrape up some gas money and make it up.

Catch ya later.
