My fault. I look back at first page here. Missed the 2018 on the schedule.

Ok may 11. Maybe I can get a Saturday off.

I've always run 6mm and....

your chassis will still get scratched up. Bring extra spurs too - pebbles can do a lot of damage. Once I blew up an esc from a pebble getting caught between the pinion and spur.

I haven't blown up an esc, but I have had damaged to pinions and spurs. One thing I have done that helps is to put some strips of clear packing tape over the openings in the chassis directly below the openings for the diffs and spur gear. It stops some pebbles and the sticky side collects the very tiny stuff. You can peel them of and replace them after a race. It's not a cure, but it helps.
