Vw GX3

At the LA Auto show today, a VW executive drove this concept 3 wheeled vehicle through the crowd and onto display, surprising everyone in the auto industry. The Volkswagen GX3 is nearly production ready and is just waiting for “significant US interest” to make it to market in 2007. This gorgeous little thing will cost only $17,000, and it’s 1.6 liter engine will push it from 0 – 60 in under 6 seconds and still provide over 46 miles to the gallon. Simply stunning. Of course it reminds me of the T-Rex but this seems to be a much more sensible and affordable recreational vehicle. I want one, NOW.

T-spec

I bougth a T-spec from a guy at the track in November. I bought it for 100$, and this included a crap load of extras. It also included a super rooster ESC, futaba Servo, and many other custom mods. It has a whole tupper ware bucket full. It also had 5 battery packs! Well, turns out my track only races t-specs on thursday, and its a school night so….. I bought a few GP 3300 packs, and am getting a stock motor so I can race stock. They race stock on saturday, which i can go to.CIMG0620.JPG

MRC superbrain 969 Charger

I recently got this charger, and I love it. Its awesome. It takes a few hours to figure everything out, but after that, its smooth Sailing. I have used 2 or 3 times now, and am pretty used to it. You can charge, and discharge 2 batteries at the same time. I used the charger with a set of GP 3300s, and their preformance is great. I really like the Discharge featur, and it is very handy. To keep the charger cool, There is a small built in fan. The only Bad thing is that it is quite loud when it is Charging-discharger. This noise is from the fan.

Overall
I think it is a very good bang for your buck. It has all the features Racers need, and its great for bashers because you can charge 2 batteries at once! Coming from a dynamite 20$ charger, this is the best I could have gotten for my money.mrcp09692.jpg

Track expedition

I went to the carpet track on saturday and had alot of fun. First off, i bought 2 used GP 3300 packs for 15 each. So, I charged em up, and used em. Holy crap! This thing is awesome! its alot faster, adn much more runtime then the stock T-spec battery. To makethe day better, the LHS owner let me have a gp 3300 pack for free! Im gonna get a stock motor next week, and see what happens.
