Glad to hear you're going to actually TRY this weekend Jody!! LOL

Hey, do me a favor, order a few extra parts (like that spool I broke) this week... I could use some handouts...lmao

Michael, I didn't get a chance to discuss batteries w/you at BTH05, but I found my 3800's were coming off the charger almost perfect on temperature when I turned the delta peak down to .02. Have you tried that yet? It was pretty close to the same results on both my LRP Comp2 and my Record Breaker, so I don't think it was just my chargers...

BTW- thanks again for coming out, I hate you had glitching problems, but as usual we enjoyed racing with you. Too bad you aren't coming to Bama- it would be cool to race w/o having to worry about being race director.

Thumbs up Mag Zapper

Been playing with my new mag zapper and I must say it is worth the money. Brought all of my motors back to life.

A friend had a can that he played with and was using a different zapper and tried to reverse zap the can and it would not bring it back. On the gauss meter it read 4.78 after zapping with the other zapper. When I used the Team Thunder Magnet Zapper brought it all the way up to 5.30.

I am happy with my new toy!

LOL John.

its in nashville its my home track. the website is www.rcmotorsportsracing.com

it has indoor oval carpet, road course carpet, and a dirt offroad

Plenty of pit space and light. power is at the tables but if you are like me and hook up a lot of stuff you might bring a power strip. Oh yeah and a stool. the tables are "bar" height.

BTW everyone's welcome in here John even you LOL

Jason,

Actually Scott has been charging with a .02 cut off on his GFX and liked it. I've been using .03 with my orion advantage and much more chargers.
They both have temp cut offs so I just set that just in case. most of the time it hits the cutoff before the temp shut off.

It's no big deal man I really enjoyed hanging out and cutting up with everyone. I ordered enough spektrums for everything I own LOL I should be good to go from here on out.

It's really a long trip for us and like $120 just in gas with the trailer. So we are going to just stay in town and support our dirt track. I've been racing so much I almost burned out on asphalt... I'm ready to go indoor for carpet vegas is almost a month away...

Hopefully we will see you guys up here some this winter.

Cool Scotty glad to hear it. Just remember those readings aren't actual gauss so only use them as a reference.

BTW we designed ours to zap fully so yes you can reverse the magnets and bring them back to full capacity.

That's cool Michael, I understand taking a weekend off from traveling!!

Don't worry, we'll be up there this winter for some carpet action, but this year's gonna be different- with all the wheel time I'm getting in nitro you best be ready for a beat down!!!

BTW- we gonna run any mod TC on carpet this year? Or just stock & 19t?

Marc, I'll be checking my email in a few.

Jason,

yeah yeah I hear you man LOL I'll have a new touring this winter though so WATCH out HAHA

I'll be honest most of the guys at our track are afraid of modified due to breakage. I'd run it, but I don't know who else would.

It will probably be stock and 19 touring

I wish we could talk you into running 12th mod now that's where the FUN is at should be a bigger class this year we talked a couple more guys into running it.

I can hook you up with CRC stuff if you are interested let me know.

later

One quick note...

Everyone that has joined the team, please send me an email with a pic of you/your car for the team page. Don't worry it won't crack everyones computer screens the pics will be real small when I'm done LOL

Also include your city/state in the email so I can add that to the website as well.

I'm still working on a few of the pages, but I hope to have everything finished shortly.

Thanks
