in faster classes, dollars don't necessarily win races. besides, i seem to run a motor per year so the cheaper they are the more comfortably disposable they are lol. engines are kind of consumables in nitro.

Great day of racing yesterday!  It was nice to see a few more people out there - makes it more fun all around.  We had some good battles in all classes which was cool too.  Congrats to Avery for a strong performance qualifying into the A-Main and putting in a solid run in the main!

We have two club races left before Speed Weekend:

June 18 (no excuses for any fathers to miss racing - it's your day)
June 25
July 2 - No Racing on Canada Day Long Weekend
July 8-9 Speed Weekend

Thanks for a fun race day. The rental car worked well and was fun to drive. Thanks to the club for having the rental, and to Neil for battery charging and sharing his shade.

I see a 2013 XRAY T4 on RCTECH for a touch over $200. The owner says it needs nothing, and is in great shape. Is there anything specific I should ask when buying a used chassis?

Any suggestions for other touring cars to look at?

Thanks,
Colin

Colin, that is the same chassis as my 2 cars so myself and others in the club have parts for it and Matrix also supports Xray so that is all good. It also has a graphite chassis witch is more durable and less likely to tweak in a crash compared to the newer aluminum chassis. I think I paid $300 each for mine when they were one year old so for a 4 year old chassis that has some ware on it $225 is a bit high IMO. If you could get it for $200 shipped then it would not be a bad deal.

Colin, I don't know if that is the one we talked about on Sunday but if it is the one being sold by "kchura", ask him if it is the one driven by his son? If so , I might be a little leery of the abuse that it has seen. What does he mean it needs nothing, does that mean everything is included? I can't remember whether the speed control you have is a 1 cell or not? So you may have to think about updating that and the servo. If it is kchura's car, then I would not want to pay more than $200 shipped. Good luck.

I asked him if it needs any repair; he said no. It is just a roller. No electronics, no servo, no spare parts. He will throw in a 21.5 motor. He said he's firm on the price; if he doesn't get it, he'll just use it for parts for his '14, '15 or '16 car. I can understand that.

I do have a Tekin RS speed control. It looks to be fine for 2 cell lipo. I also have two Epic Duo 2 motors. I think they are 17.5, but I don't know how to tell.


Hey, does anyone need a 700mah LiFe receiver pack? I have two left over from previous projects that I am not going to get back to. Stored the last few years in my cool basement. Cells are at 3.30v +1 0.02v. One looks perfect, the other feels slightly puffed.

Thanks for the assist guys.

The Club car could be busy this weekend.  It sounds like Avery's friend may want to try it, and then there could be Colin and another new guy as well.  If it's busy then we'll need help with some batteries and charging etc....  We can run it in the first TC Stock heat, the Scale Spec heat, and potentially the fast TC Stock heat if needed.

Also, Doug will be debuting his new gas car, so that will be cool to see!

Forecast for the weekend looks good so far.  See ya then.

I would like to try the club car again if it is available, but I'll defer to others who haven't had a chance yet.

Hey Colin,

Yep sounds good.  Depending on other newcomers you may need to race it in a slightly faster heat than last week.

Carter and I send regrets, I leave for San Diego on Sunday and  the week after friends from Dubai/Namibia land that day.  I am however making my visitor camp out with carter and I for speed weekend.
