Had a perfect day of rc. Started off running the ERBE around a bit. Its fun, but our venue just didn't have many challenges. Pretty soon I brought out the XO-1.
We had a pretty good turnout today.
We had a simple road course setup and tore around it for nearly three hours. I ran 3 sets of batteries though the car, 16,800 mah worth.
It came back dirty, but ready for more.
I heard my thermal alarm twice today. I had the 34 pinion in, and thats not ideal for a short road course. Its such a double edge sword, the alarm goes off, which make you want to park it, but a nice big oval around the lot will turn off the alarm.
The tires took a beating... but the car was great. Took several slams throughout the day and no broken pars. Probably burned through $30-40 worth of tires though...
Everyone ran pretty well with no serious failures.
The car handled great, I added a 3-4 turns of front preload about a quarter into the day.
