Guys, I'm going to need a lot of help w/out our superhero Judge/coordinator extraordinaire hobbycar around! Carlos, will you be attending, I'm really hoping you can assist w/ race management? In addition, I have to leave to pick my wife up from the airport (I'll be back right after and it's a quick trip) so will be counting on you guys to keep things running while I'm out. Bring fans! If anyone has a couple of large fans that we can put in the doorways, that would be great - it seemed last time that at one point it was actually fairly cool outside, but the inside stayed fairly toasty. :eek: Oh, and if you picked up items at the last race but have yet to order them, you are now dead to me. :mad: J/K :D but seriously, get 'em in wouldja?! :) Anyone who has not yet picked up an S4 Motor (http://shop.tinyrc.com/product.php?productid=18693), you're going to want to do so ASAP, these things really scream and are going to add a whole new dimension to this season's racing. We spent most of the recent Practice day setting up for these, so be forewarned that it's not just a case of dropping them in and expecting your car to still handle! ;) Cool! :) :cool:

I plan on being there. I will also bring my camera for the videos. Jason will not make it tomorrow. He had to fly out back home for a family emergency.
I will keep the show running smooth and fast. I cannot stay very very late since I got a few things to cover on Saturday.

I will need to get the new motor tomorrow, install it and run it. Also will need new batteries. I hope the shop has some.

I just ordered my season 4 motor, so I'll be there. Hope I can get away with the stock FETs for a while...

You have the 3010 fets already. That is the best you can run in this HFAY series anyway. You're all set.

thanks guys for all the help I've got today (yesterday).
Chuck, I've figured out why the damper did not work. It is for 94mm wheelbase according to the @tomic site (Product ID: 12317)

I think I need the 98mm system which is basically the same but the plate is made of titanium and longer...

P, we'll get you sorted, I think it'll just be a case of swapping this in:

We'll take a look at your setup at the next race and get everything taken care of. FYI the site you referred to is not Atomic's - that can be found here:

http://www.rcatomic.com/main/modules/tinycontent/index.php?id=2

The site you found is a US vendor that just has a similar name - they do sell some Atomic parts but often charge 200%+ of MSRP. ;) :)

What is the Lazer points schedule for the next few weeks? I'm up for doing another Sunday Setup Day, maybe even doing some F1 or other classes? :) :cool:
