No battery change. Single set only.

Hi, Al from RMZR.

Thinking of maybe heading down on Sat., have a Mr03VE, but don't have much experience with it. What motor and gearing should I set the car up with to make the 35min. runtime. Any tips would be appreciated.

Another question, what does 70t *open* mean? Handout motors or should I bring my own.

Thanks guys

Hey Al. It's brushless motor for the 35min. Enduro. I don't have a gear ratio to suggest. I'm running a 64p diff with a 12t pinion. 35min. Shouldn't be a problem with a 6-7 pinion on the stock spur. I'm going to probably run a shorter gear and dial back some throttle.

The 70t open is not a handout race so bring yours.:)

Schedule shows door open at 11, should it be 10:30 for an hour unregulated practice? I only ask because I have to build my brushless car and the extra half an hour would come in handy. :)

+1 on opening the doors at 10:30am for extra practice time. :)

We've only scheduled two classes for the day so I think we can get some practice time in.

want to say thank you to kris for organizing this, dwight for the trophies and gary for opening his doors for everyone. thanks to al as well for making the trek down to join us.

sorry i had to drop out of the brushless race. blew up my stock LM diff 8 laps in. i wasn't really finished building it anyway. took it apart when i got home and fund a bunch of loose things. i didn't do much better in 70T, put new tires on and had a bit to much bite in 2 turns leaving me rolling over.

it was great to see joey finish the brushless race! i've never seen a brushless run that low and managed to pull it across the finish on it's last bit of juice.

My nitro season and jet ski season is coming to the end. I hope to see you all soon.... Glad to see the two clubs working together for some bigger turn outs. Keep the shiny side up Ray!!!

Guys, great event.
It was nice to finally get some use out of my brushless 03, look forward to more brushless mini enduro racing in the future.

Thank you Gary, Kris, Dwight, Ray and the rest of the Remnant/DC crew for making me feel at home.

Remember, you guys are always welcome to come up and race with the rest of Reading/Railyard crew, just tell me when.

anyone figure out why al and dwights cars could not be used simultaneously? i've not see a case where 2 different cars could not be used at the same time regardless of transmitter used on each.

Al is checking. With KO on this.

KO got back to me today, Robert of KO America said per KO Japan that it could be corrupted firmware on the RF module.
Sending control unit back to KO USA for a free reflash of RF module. Hopefully this will resolve issues.

Dwight if you are reading this, KO USA said it might not be a bad idea for you to send your control unit back for a reflash. You need to contact them with your serial number, ask for Robert.

I will contact them in the asap. Thanks Al
