Computer hacked

Speed run 2 cell packs, the rossa shit show

Street outlaws New Orleans stupid way of talking, it’s like fear the walking dead as compared to walking dead

CowRC mat check list idea 

New Cap packs to test

  • RC Word Of the Week

Fail-Safe

 A pre-programmed feature that helps limit problems caused by radio interference. The system dictates a set position that the servos should return to (usually neutral) in the event of prolonged radio interference. This can help to prevent crashes by preventing temporary commands from being continued, and is included in most PCM radio systems.

 Facebook Questions:

 Joe Zaier Jr Do you try to eat decent when you're out of town racing

 Jeremy Drey You spoke about "loading up a motor" in a previous show. Not just pointing it straight and nailing the trigger. Can you elaborate further?

 Justin Frazier What is the current RC motorcycle record that is considered legit? Open class if there is such a thing. Not a 2 cell bike.

 Steve Pond How fast does it go and how much does it cost?

 Nate Hauger Do you use a set-up station, like for on-road cars, with the Rudis/RAE chassis? How do you check to make sure it's perfect?

 Aaron Bullock When can we get a Steve Pond interview... ??

 Daniel Gallardo What happened with the website you were going to make that was going to have all the rc records? Did I miss it?

 Desmond Desmond Where should the timing be put on the trinity d4 2.5 for max top speed

 Darwin Bohnke What about your idea of speed run on dirt?

 Featured Item of the week

MiniPro dyno  369.00

This is a universal motor dynamometer (dyno) that measures the rpm, kv, voltage, current draw, power and torque output of a electric motor. This dyno is great tool for motor analysis, ESC (boost) adjustment, brushless sensor adjustment, gearing calculation, etc. The dyno is coupled to a 540/550 motor or a Outrunner motor via a pulley and belt to accelerate the inertial mass. We will call this a ‘flywheel’ for simplicity. Our electronic board takes the flywheel’s inertia (resistance of an object to a change in its state of motion), measures the rate it takes to accelerate and calculates the output power and torque of your motor. Our dyno repeatedly measures and calculates power in small increments to produce an accurate graph on a PC of the engine’s power characteristics.
