    and now it's all done, I ran it tonight for about 7 minutes, it sounded AWESOME ! All the torque in the world and revved up to about 2/3 great, I want to run it in some more before I get carried away. Still got to use a screw driver to turn the motor from time to time but I am WELL PLEASED !
    I can't wait until I hit the track with this bad boy ! ! ! :D

    well I had a blast last night, I took my truggy and SC10GT and raced them. However I forgot the camera ! I even charged it up and still forgot about it until we were half way there.
    Well my truggy was the big story tonight as I won the truggy class, they were just three of us racing, I wasn't so fortunate with the SC10GT, oh don't get me wrong, the shocks worked AWESOME but I will post it on the SC10GT site...

    ahhh the old NIMH 1600's I think, they did well. You see the soldering I had to do on the cell, but that's another story...
