yaya i havent try the Ib cell with my new 6, 7 and 8 turn motor yet. i just finish solder the cells few day ago. i was worried the run time because the track that i going to run in this dec race was a large and high speed track. so run time is important for me some more i used so low turn motor.

Thanks on the website.

Well we are racing indoor dirt offroad in nashville on Saturdays and then outdoor parking lot racing too at hobbytown on Sundays.

During the winter we have a nice indoor carpet track now. Probably won't start up until October though...

There is no racing in Knoxville anymore...

We've been racing an Alabama series for electric and nitro touring mainly and local racing in nashville at hobbytown usa.

Great to hear from you tell your wife we said hello as well.

I'll tell Jody you said hi.

Hi Michael,

Good job on the new website.

Have to agree with the earlier comments on the text colours, it makes it pretty hard to read. White on the Dk Red would be easier, then the yellow in there wouldnt stand out as much, the white hyperlinks im not sure what colour you'd want those.
The Menu's fine, asside from the yellow '2 Time National Champions' bit which on light grey is a bit invisable.

Its only a case of finding the right combination of colours that work together without clashing, and without bringing in too many new colours (already have white, black, dk red & yellow).


On a seperate note, i should be emailing you in the week confirming an order for one of the 12v Zappers, I've got the money clearing my account at the moment, hopefully wednesday it'll be in and we'll be all systems go.

Hey Mike, good to see things are up and running for you. I still have the Atlas and it has been fast, just kinda sits there now, been running mostly stock or mod, no 19T. Good luck with everything and thanks for the help on stuff in the past. If not before, I guess I'll see ya at the onroad nats in FL?

Thanks for the input... I'll look into it next week.

As for the 12v zapper, they are ready to ship.

Actually... for the first 5 Overseas customers that order the 12Volt unit I will knock off $50.00 (US of course) So... the first 5 people that order a 12 Volt Zapper for overseas will only pay $750.00 +shipping ($50 off)!!! (Email me for a shipping quote. I will need your full address to quote shipping options.)
This is a limited time offer and only for the first 5 12 volt units. We want to get several overseas to spread the word.

Thanks,

Michael Skeen

The packs are pretty good the first run, but run it two or three times and the Punch will really come up. You should notice it on the track as well

I'm seeing 4400 to almost 4800+ Mah on my IB 3800's even when deadshorted packs

Iím looking for some custom hand massage MOD motor for my 1/12 scale.

I'll be honest I like v2's from the standpoint of they are easy on the comm and you can get several runs out of them, but they are a pain to work on and solder in your car...

I also still run Ti motors...

DC Motorsports winds some really good stuff and he's real quick about getting the product to you. Curtis' work is top notch.

Team Br00d also does good work and their arms are top notch also. They take the time to go the extra mile weld the tabs instead of just solder and polish the stacks. However you will have to wait a little longer with them.

Those are the only two companies I'd consider buying from and both you can specify what exact winds you want or you can have them give you some suggestions.
